I've made a New Years resolution this year to be more devoted to my blog!! I'm trying to blog something crafty everyday.

I have a small list of people I visit to steal inspiration off and would love to add to this. To participate, your blog does not have to be crafty as I am sure we all like to meet different people out there.

I've seen swaps on here like this before I think...so you would visit each of your partners blogs and have a nosey around and leave 1 comment. It's as simple as that!

Following your partners blog is not compulsory but do feel free!

P.s. I haven't been on swap-bot for aaaages and have never made a swap before either. Please tell me if I've missed something or confused anyone :)

So this is to find new blogs, friends, inspiration? That's interesting I have a fairly new blog myself and only a few followers. So all we have to do is leave a comment on our partners blog?

SewGorgeous 01/ 3/2013 #

Absolutely! If you really like their blog you can follow them - maybe that would earn you a heart? I just want to meet more people really, see how they blog, learn a bit about them etc!

SewGorgeous 01/ 3/2013 #

P.s. you might even meet people to set up swaps with!

Its a great idea! I joined a similar swap back in 2009 and it really bumped up my number of followers. Maybe you'd want to consider having more partners - like 5? Just an idea :)

SewGorgeous 01/ 3/2013 #

5 would be great if people are up for it! I will change it now, if anyone disagrees please let me know.

Bluegirl 01/ 3/2013 #

I agree! 5 partners would be nice.

SewGorgeous 01/ 3/2013 #

I'm so excited! Is hosting a swap always so exciting? Hehe!

smadronia 01/ 3/2013 #

I agree 5 is good. There's a woman who does these sorts of swaps, and she does 20 partners. Sometimes it gets a little overwhelming, sometimes it's fun. I like that someone has picked up the blog comment swap

CuriosaKat 01/ 4/2013 #

I'm excited to meet new folks who blog, too. I'm okay with 5 for this swap. =)

aburtch 01/ 5/2013 #

Super excited to see some new blogs!!

heyitsmesandrab 01/ 6/2013 #

I love this idea but I have a question are we blogging everyday or on a weekly bases

roaddummy 01/ 9/2013 #

this is a great way to step outside of your box and maybe find someone or another blog that you really like!! I have done one or two of these swaps before and it is a lot of fun!!!

SuziLB 01/10/2013 #

This sounds great. I have just rejoined Swap-bot and this inspired me to update my blog. Can't wait to see the others.

Kimiw 01/12/2013 #

I don;t have a blog but love to read other peoples blogs. Is their anyway for get a link to your guys blogs since I don't meet the requirement of having a blog to share?

SewGorgeous 01/13/2013 #

Heyitsmesandrab - you can blog as little or often as you want, all you have to do for this blog is visit your partners blog and leave a comment! Kimiw - I suppose we could post links here or often people have a link on their profile, but without a blog you wouldn't be able to join the swap, sorry! If you're interested, my blog is www.sewgorgeous.blogspot.co.uk As a reminder for other people - if you don't have your blog on your profile you will have to contact your partners with your blog address :) excited to start browsing!

Were in top swaps!!!

mayuze 01/13/2013 #

I'm realy looking forward for this swap...but still a little unsure. My blog is quite new and is mainly about the swaps I'm doing. I already signed up, but now I'm in doubt. Is this what people like te see on a blog?

kraftykj 01/13/2013 #

@mayuze I am sure your blog is fine! Mine is chit chat about my homelife and such..I love reading different types of blogs..

aburtch 01/14/2013 #

Excited to give and receive some blog love!

ItsAllShiny 01/14/2013 #

@mayuze - I feel the same. I hae shared my new blog as I won't be posting on my old one (though there's a link and people can still read/follow it) I only have two posts so far so apologies for those who get me as a partner :)

kisscut91 01/14/2013 #

one of my partners doesnt have a blog in her profile :(

LovelyLici 01/14/2013 #

Sooo... How do you comment on a Tumblr blog? I can't figure it out. Lol.

SewGorgeous 01/14/2013 #

I have the same problem @kisscut91 - I would message her here on swap-bot to find out her website. Hope this helps.

LovelyLici 01/15/2013 #

I'm going to have a look at as many participant blogs as I can by viewing the participant list. I think anyone who'd like extra visitors should post blog links here. Mine are: http://conchsaladesque.wordpress.com and http://www.AliciaAudrey.com

I transferred my Tumblr blog over to WordPress so people can comment without having to follow me. New Year, new blog, pretty stoked! WokeUpMissing.WordPress.com

kraftykj 01/17/2013 #

Www.kraftykj.blogspot.com It's on my profile as well

MummySew 01/19/2013 #

you'd all be welcome to come and visit me at www.mummysew.blogspot.co.uk

MummySew 01/19/2013 #

I've sent all my comments on 15th but haven't received feedback from everyone. What is the protocol for chasing. Who does it, how long is it normal to wait before chasing etc. I'm new at this and not sure how it all works.

chocosamurai 01/19/2013 #

I'm just wondering by what date line does swap-bot go by? (me being all the way in Nz means we are ahead so I don't want to jump ahead of time...)

chocosamurai 01/19/2013 #

ah.. I see. because it is the 20th here already (according to the comment I just made its the 19th....still)

Bluegirl 01/20/2013 #

Do come and visit! http://bluegirlsketchblog.blogspot.fr

tumbochka 01/23/2013 #

MummySew, I commented twice before the deadline on your blog, and I repeated today (after your message). It said the comment will appear after approval.

tumbochka 01/23/2013 #

Oops, sorry, it was not MummySew , but another mummy :)
