Back in April, I joined
The reason I joined was because the Dollar Store Crafts blog challenged its readers to a) give up shopping for new craft supplies for the month in the 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' spirit of Earth Day, and b) to find someone on swap-bot to exchange surplus craft supplies with.
It has been a lot of fun seeing the types of swaps that people create. It seems that there are a lot of swaps intended to find pen pals or to exchange recipes, postcards, treats, and craft ideas. They can revolve around a theme of some sort (a specific color, a cartoon/anime character, a holiday or season) or they can be centered around what the recipient writes in his/her profile.
I have learned some new lingo involved with swapping, too, like newbies, flakes, sender's choice and angel. (**You swappers know what I'm talking about.**)
This week I found an intriguing swap. One that introduces 10 other swappers to your blog. In return, you also follow 10 swappers blogs as well. I think this is a fantastic idea because I love to hear what others think about my blog, but it appears that I have few readers. Hopefully this swap will cure my no comment blues, and maybe I'll make a couple bloggie friends along the way.
