Six Degrees of Blogging

The Outnumbered Mama found me yesterday as she was playing a round of 6 Degrees of Blogging. It seems like she found some cool new friends so I decided I would play too.

Here are the rules:
*Start on your blog and clink on another blog's link. Keep clicking through to another blog until you get to the 6th blog.

*Leave a comment on their blog saying "Hey, I found you through 6 degrees of blogging! You are being featured on my blog today! (Leave your blog URL so they can find you and the featured post.)

*Write a quick blurb on your blog with the 6 degrees button, a link/button to your featured blogger and a few nice words about them and their blog. Encourage your readers to visit your featured blogger and leave them some comment love!

*Link your blog up on the MckLinky blog hop (feel free to grab the blog hop code if you want) so we can visit your blog and see who you found! The goal here is to find new blogs. Find someone who might not have found otherwise. To encourage other bloggers by leaving them comments of support! Follow other bloggers and they will return the favor by following and commenting on yours. Now go click your little heart out!!

1st Degree: From my blog I clicked over to the blog of my most recent follower that has one, which is Emily! We became friends after being assigned as swap partners about a year ago and she just started up her blog Phone Home Designs by E.T. about shopping and designing things on the cheap. She's really good at it!

2nd Degree: From there I clicked on the first entry in her blog list and found Gigi's Gone Shopping who had just posted about J.Crew, one of my favorite topics of course.

3rd Degree: Then I clicked on the profile of the girl who had commented right before me and found her blog, DaniBP Mop Philosopher. She was talking about some great J.Crew finds and also a beautiful Liberty of London scarf, get this, not from Target! Yes, they have been around much longer.

4th Degree: I clicked on a random one of her followers, actually it wasn't random at all, I liked the glitter shoes in her icon picture. There I found CoCo of Ruby Shoe Blues. It seems like a lot of her blog is about shopping too, and cute stuff is featured there, especially Anthropologie! But I read a post about some big plans for writing and career that she has.
5th Degree: After that I read through her blogroll and tried to pick one that isn't about shopping. I chose Dea Diaries. It turned out she writes about shopping too, but there was a very lovely skirt being featured and Dea herself might as well be a model! Lovely blog!
6th Degree: I picked out a sweet comment from the list before me and that took me to Sweet Tea in Seattle. She had posted the cutest OOTD and also talks about her family and other fun stuff. I'll definitely follow.
So there you have it! If you were wanting to start reading any new blogs, especially fashion and shopping ones, check these out first! Or post your own 6 degrees. I had fun!

I love clicking on links or visiting other commentors, I do it all the time ;) This sounds like a fun game but as I visit a lot of folk like that anyway, I'll pass on playing.
Is it windy where you are? it's been very windy for 3 days now, I'm having to keep the plants inside.

How neat! I will have to do this when I get some time this weekend. This is how I usually find blogs anyway, but there's always room for more. Thanks for passing this along:)
