HOW MANY BLOGS DO YOU VISIT, AND SOME OTHER STUFF

I'm a hugger, but these days, people are not as touchy feely.  But I'm not a kisser, so even though Friday, July 6 is International Kissing Day, I won't be snuggling up to any strangers.(lol)

Today is also National Fried Chicken Day, which I think I will take advantage of.  Though quite rare, if you have an actual fear of chickens, it's called Alektorophobia.

TIPS FOR TRAVEL
Airlines occasionally make errors when posting fares that can save you hundreds of dollars.  Sign up for alerts from www.secretflying.com or www.theflightdeal to find more information.

Rental Car Deals - yes, you can get your rental car at a discounted rate if you check out autoslash.com.  They do all the work for you!


THAT'S A LOT OF SMELLING
Did you know that us humans have 5 million scent detecting cells, which sure sounds like a lot - but dogs actually have 200 million?!


WORDS YOU'VE HEARD
You may have heard the old phrase, "cat and mouse games" which means loosely the act of being constantly chased and nearly escaping eventual capture, and dates way back to 1675.  Some describe it as a game that keeps going on and on and never ends.


GET YOUR POTASSIUM ON
Whenever someone tells us to eat potassium, we automatically run out to buy a ton of bananas, which I like sometimes.  But we can also get potassium in parsnip, spinach, sweet potatoes, avocados, coconut water and tomato sauce.


SWEET MUSIC
In Memphis TN, there's a Gibson factory where you can watch guitars actually being built, painted and tuned.  A Gibson Guitar can easily range in prices of up to $5000!


HOW MANY BLOGS DO YOU VISIT A DAY?
Initially, I started reading a few romance review blogs years ago.  Then I started my own blog and didn't know what the heck I was doing.  Eventually I gathered the courage to visit more blogs every day and comment.  When I'm feeling super perky, I can easily visit about 50-60 blogs a day, but I've known people who visit a lot more than that.  On a bad day, I even pass on looking at my own blog(lol).

I really love interacting with other people and their blogs because I learn new things, and find lots of similarities.  Even better, it's just fun.  What about you?  How many blogs are you visiting on a daily basis?

  1. I have between 47 and 55 blogs that I visit each day but some don't post every day so the number fluctuates.

  2. I have a lot of friends blogs on my left sidebar, but many don't post everyday. I visit between 18 and 30 depending on who has updated their blog. BTW, I always love your random type bits and pieces of information you share with us.

    I'll hug you, too! No kissing, though. Hope your Independence Day was enjoyable.

    1. I agree that having them on my sidebar does help. but there have been times I've forgotten. That's a pretty good number of visits for sure. I always love when you come over this way to wave hello! My mind is hopelessly random, which may explain the posts, dear Elizabeth.(lol) I'll take that hug and thank you very much! Hugs and Happy Friday! RO

  3. Sigh. You, of all people should know that I've been failing at visiting lately, Ro. *sobs* But if I were the old me, I think I visit whoever updated on a daily basis. IDK how many people, tbh.

  5. Hi RO, this was a fun read. I learned a lot and will enjoy those useful links also. Thank you so much. I'm a hugger, grew up in a hugger family. I don't hug strangers, lol! As for visiting blogs, I do my best to visit every blog that visits me, and if I am having a more of a relaxing day I will visit more. Some days like yesterday I wasn't able to visit hardly any.

    1. Back in the day, people were a little more receptive to hugs, but sometimes my affinity for hugging still will cause me to forget myself and hug a stranger.

  11. How many blogs I visit a day....

    Do you mean, how many do I just Visit??? Because my Stat Counter shows that a lot of people, just Visit my blog. Which makes me very peeved. just Visit but no comment.

    So to me, I read and comment, on about 10 a day, because that is the number of New Posts, which show up, every day.

    I try to not follow more blogs, than I can read and comment.

    1. It's nice that people visit, but if they're like me, it took me a long time to gather the courage to actually say something.(lol) Now it's hard to shut me up sometimes.(lol) Your blog always has something interesting to say. Hugs and Happy Saturday! RO

    2. Agree on that Wisps ......
      I don't like it when people just read and go away. That gives you the feeling that your blog may not be up to the mark worth commenting on.

  15. In my part of Australia one would rarely get their potassium sourced from Parsnips unless fairly wealthy. In NSW Aus Parsnips sell at around a medium price of Aus$12-00 per kilo. Whereas Carrots and bananas are approx Aus$1-50 per kilo. Mainly due to the weight ratio being lower in the parsnip compared to carrot, further to its expense is that the parsnip takes an additional six weeks than most Veg to mature. Ah well; time flys like an arrrow. but in Aus, Fruit flies like a banana.

  19. Hadn't heard of Kissing day or Fried chicken day. Being Portuguese we kiss everybody twice on the cheeks.
    I visit probably over 15 blogs a day and try to leave a comment on all of them unless I don't know what to say about the specific post.
    Then if I see an interesting title on the sidebar of one of the visited blogs I'll also visit. I also get a lot of visitors but not many leave comments which is sad.
    Have a nice weekend RO and thanks for the lovely facts.

    1. I like the idea of kissing on each cheek. I've seen that on television, and always thought it was cool. LOL - I've visited just a very few that I was at a loss for words of what to say, but it's pretty rare these days. You get tons of visits for sure! Hope your weekend is as amazing as you are! Hugs...RO

  20. I was always one reluctant to touch, but I've become a moderate hugger. Fun that its kissing and chicken day (chicken lips? LOL)
    Good to know about sources of potassium beyond bananas. I did know that about the scent glands relating to how much more acute a dogs are.

    You know, I have no idea how many blogs I visit in a day. It's definitely twenty, but I don't think its near sixty. Most don't get visits each day, but at least once a week. I have found several wonderful bloggers to follow are having them comment when I guest review. I've only got a few that are lifestyle blogs and I do want to find a few travel blogs that are a good fit for me. I'll have to check out those deal websites.

    Have a splendid weekend, Ro!

    1. I thought that was pretty ironic too Sophia(lol) Pretty fascinating about what dogs can do, but you already know that. When I started out with blogging, it was strictly book bloggers, but it's cool to see all the other type of bloggers that are out there where we share the same interests. I can get in that many visits when I'm up to my perky bests, but there are days when I don't even see what's going on with my own blog.(lol) Hope your weekend was great! Hugs...RO

  21. I try and visit as many blogs as I can a day - both ones I regularly follow and any time I notice a new commentor on my blog. I do try to set a time limit on how much time I spend doing it because I could spend an infinite amount of time visiting - or at least that's how it feels! No idea sweet potatoes had potassium! How interesting!

    That's a good number of blogs to visit every day. If I hit as many as I want it's 70 usually. But that's very rare these days. I'm doing good if I make it to 5-10 a day. One day things will calm down maybe. lol

I try to visit blogs twice a week if I can but these days due to being short on time, I typically reply to any comments on my blog, then visit their blog to return the favour.

  38. I blog once a week so that one day a week, I visit about twenty to thirty blogs. There was a time when I visited a lot more but I found that people kinda fell off the blogging world and also, my blog is rather unique and not always easy to comment on so I get that. I still like to read other people's blogs and comment even when they don't comment on mine because for me, it's about what I find entertaining, if that makes sense?

  44. I think that Gibson factory would be amazing. And I have no idea how many blogs I visit a day, but some days I know it's a lot! Other days I might visit less- it kinda depends. Days like today when I go Sunday Post-ing (ha) it's probably quite a high number!

    Love the pics. The one with the rocks that look like they're kissing made me think of Arch Rock on Mackinac Island in Michigan- not because of any kissing but just because it's a cool rock. :) Here's a look.
