Blogroll Amnesty Day is next Tuesday. STEAL THIS VIDEO.



And enjoy!

Tuesday, February 3 is Blogroll Amnesty Day. Old timers know that this holiday has a rather sullen history, but now it is a happy occasion: On February 3, bloggers are invited to post links to five blogs you like, that have smaller traffic than your own. It's a great celebration and a time to discover new blogs and link them and stuff. As I said last year, "not to get all mushy here, but do you know how fucking great it is to be here in the blogosphere? Take a moment. Take it in." Spread some linky love.

Small and newbie bloggers please be aware of the ironclad rule that you are not allowed to make "hey no blog is as small as mine" jokes regarding Blogroll Amnesty Day. The rule is, straight from the queen of the indy blogs herself (ahem), that you are not allowed to complain or mention your blog's low traffic until you have been posting daily for a year. If you're little, link other blogs that are new or still growing their audience, and encourage them to practice their craft daily. Then, show them how.

  1. I like it... Consider it stolen and cross posted. Just understand that I do feel kind of bad victimizing you.

  8. I is a happy camper. My Technorati numnber just went to 2! I will try and figure out how to get your video into my blog, BG.

    In the meantime, take a read of my latest tale of whimsy and woe.

  11. I'll be adding your video tomorrow at the end of Rowdy's Roundup. I try to link to at least one new-ish blog per week in that post. But maybe I should be adding them to my blogroll as well. Thanks, Blue Gal... dah-link. (As Arianna might say.)
