I just stole from Blue Gal...

And I feel B.A.D. about it.

I wonder how long it will be before she notices that I did a panty raid while I was there?

B.A.D Blogger... Very B.A.D. Blogger.
this upcoming weekend we will be celebrating the second anniversary of blogroll amnesty & blogroll bloodbath anniversary remembrance day!

this year our partner in this endeavor, jon swift, will join us in celebrating this blogtopian-wide holiday all next weekend beginning on saturday.

update: we will officially start on saturday, jan. 31. the original blogroll amnesty day is february 3, but we're calling for a four-day weekend! huzzah!

as you may remember, the modus operandus of blogroll amnesty day is to link to 5 blogs smaller than your own, thus introducing your readers to new voices.

and may we stop all the stupid jokes right here, right now: yes, there are blogs smaller than yours, no matter who you are.

mas update: ok, so we can't even stop the jokes before they start. ergo, we will ammend the parameters: if you really don't believe there are blogs smaller than yours, then in lieu of making the stupid joke that there aren't any, ha ha, please link to five blogs with traffic equivalent to yours (or in the same ball park). as long as they represent new voices (new to your readers, at least), you will have satisfied the requirement. just please don't do the stupid joke!!
The moral of the story? Link up, link sideways, link down... And never trust a guy like me anywhere near your knickers...

Life As I Know It Now said...

I'll just link to five others regardless. It will give me something to post on that day.

Connecticut Man1 said...

That is kind of how I look at it.

i might go for six just to be different

Fran / Blue Gal said...

exactly. It's a post that writes itself.

And here's the deal on traffic: You are officially allowed to complain about low traffic on your blog AFTER you have posted DAILY for a YEAR. That's 365 posts. Otherwise you haven't really started your blog yet. That's straight from the Queen of the Indy Blogs.

Thanks for running the vid, honey!

I have already linked to dozens a couple of days ago. Call this a bit of a link factory, but for myself and for this Blog... I don't really worry about traffic so much. With rss readers and crossposts I know my thoughts are being heard by my local allies. I use this mostly for research and as a scratch pad for daily pieces that I paste into longer ones for participation at other community Blogs.
