Blog Day?

According to posts in a number of places, today is Blog Day 2007. And according to the official site of the event, this is what the day is all about.

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.

However, isn’t that what a blogroll is for? Every day, the vast majority of bloggers are recommending “other blogs to their blog visitors”.

Ok, I don’t want to be a party pooper. But rather than list five new recommended blogs right now, it’s been a long week, I’m tired, and heading off to bed early.

I will update the right column this weekend with at least five new (or at least new to me) suggestions for your reading pleasure. Promise.

  1. Tim, I agree with your point, if not the expression of it (smile). I am constantly adding new bloggers to my blogroll (I use Blogrolling.com), and while I could pick out 5 to highlight…that happens anyways.

    David Warlick is using his Google Share to highlight blog postings that he shares rather than a blogroll…that approach has some attraction, as well. We’ll see. I like being able to recommend blogs from my blogroll in a workshop setting. No only do they visit MY blog to find a list, they also see all these better blogs to read (grin).

    Of course, I could just remove all of them and leave Assorted Stuff in the place of honor. What do you think?

    Best wishes,

    I’m not sure my little mess deserves a “place of honor” anywhere.
    :-)

    But I do like David’s idea. In that way, you’re directing people to good ideas as well as to the people who wrote them. I probably need to do more of that in posts as well.
