Off Topic: BlogDay 2008 On August 31

Blog Day 2008

It's that time of year again to celebrate BlogDay, the brainchild of Nir Ofir who started this global blogging event in 2005.

In an interview, Nir explains he started BlogDay because he "noticed ... that blog readers usually stick to their regular blog reading list and don't go and search for new blogs to read. The overflow of information is the main cause for that - it is just too hard to find new good blogs to read [so] I decided to create a day ... for bloggers to recommend other blogs to their blog visitors."

If you're a blogger, or a reader of blogs, it's easy to participate. Here's some further information and what you have to do:

What is BlogDay?

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.
With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

What will happen on BlogDay?

One long moment on August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude.

On this day, blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.

BlogDay posting instructions:

1. Find 5 new Blogs you find interesting.

2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2008.

3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs.

4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st).
