Is this the blogging worlds “Crying Game”?

kumikoUnbeknown to most, there is an interesting and sordid little saga playing out in the "blog" world. In what could turn out to be the web version of "The Crying Game" Kumiko Suzuki, of Kumiko's Cash Quest and long time 'commenter' at, has had her integrity questioned, by another blogger, Ronald Daniar. Ronald has alleged that Kumiko has been passing herself off as someone she (or he??) is not. Ronald has suggested that the photos Kumiko has posted with the inference that they were of her, could all be fakes. Ronald seems to have called Kumiko out on this one, yet as of this second, Kumiko does not appear to have returned fire. Based on some of the comments on Paula Neal Mooney's 'Bloggers Salary" post, he's not the only one that has doubts. Here's an example from what sounds like a frustrated Mr Anonymous:

For the love of god, size down that Kumiko picture! It's bad enough having that guy who blogs as a Japanese girl on your list, and he certainly doesn't deserve such a giant picture!

Ronald has since reported that the Kumiko pictures have now disappeared from 'her' site, following his questioning. All very interesting.sp Whether Kumiko is the real deal or not remains to be seen, I guess the world awaits 'her' reply.

All this has raised an interesting question for me though. Would Swollen Pickles be more popular if I pretended to be hot?? Well luckily for me 'hotness' isn't an issue, as you can see from a recent profile photo taken of me last week.

If Kumiko does turn out to be a fake, you can guarantee that there'll be a whole lot of blogging nerds crying into their hot pockets!

  1. […] way, I love Swollen Pickles‘ comparison of the man-posing-as-woman-blogger situation to The Crying […]

    This is gonna be great fun to watch!

    It could be just a simple way to generate a lot of traffic to both blogs also… think about it.

  4. […] I read this interesting “interview”/puff piece this morning. If you’ve been here before you may have read about the Kumiko identity saga. If this is your first visit and came here expecting to see pictures of Paris Hilton’s camel toe then you can quickly get up to speed by reading this. […]

  5. […] You like to hang out with other Transbloggers of the same team, grouping up on shared enemies. By collective power you try to get things done how you want ‘em […]

  6. Hi! I am not against anyone actually, but I don’t really like to be cheated by fake pictures or stories. Just imagine if you meet online with someone who put her photos as a beautiful princess but when you meet offline she turns out to be a ladyboy! Anyway, if you check Kumiko’s website now, I guess Google has banned her, she has Page Rank 0 now. Moreover, read her latest article titled, she is proud of the bad news about her. That is strange coz normal people will be proud with good news about themselves and not the bad news.

    Hi Ronald,
    To be fair, I believe that the PR0 at, is because the person behind the whole Kumiko thing just switched their site over from blogspot to a new domain. I don’t think google have done a pagerank update since then which might explain why it’s still zero.

    I guess yo are right about the PR! Guess what! I closed my blog last week coz I want to write a niche content. Today I was going to open it again but someone already used it. Hahaha…I did not know that I was being spied. You’d better check by yourselves and I bet you will be laughed too! Well, you can make this into a big news! I want to focus on my niche blog anyway. In this case is not mine anymore. By the way I put into secret my blog so I write for my website..hehehe

    Umm, Ronald, do you realise that your old blog address now only has a link to the Kumiko cash quest site?
