When I launched my first home page way back in the late nineties, one of the features was a game called Wild Mood Swings. In it, you choose your mood from a pulldown menu, and it takes you to a site appropriate for that mood. Sometimes, the destination will reinforce and reflect the mood, and other times it will attempt to reverse it. I later spun the site off into its own website, and it was featured in the Daily Mirror, Web User, Radio 2 and others.
As part of a move to simplify my online presence, I've now brought Wild Mood Swings back into my main website here (any existing links will redirect smoothly). I've also tested and refreshed the moods, so there are some new moods to try, as well as a few that date back to the original launch. If you've got suggestions for any missing moods or any great sites that should be included, let me know here or leave a comment below.
Next time you've got a few minutes, why not try mood surfing?
