Blog Day 2008


Blog Day 2008

It’s Blog Day 2008.  If you’re a blogger, participate.  If not, why not?

From the Blog Day website…

On August 31st, bloggers are asked to 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.


Here I am following the instructions…

  1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting DONE
  2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2008 DONE
  3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs DONE
  4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and DONE
  5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link:
    http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2008 and a link to the BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org DONE

I am always searching for blogs myself so decided to take a different tact to find new blogs.  I am a WordPress user so I logged into WordPress and used the next blog feature to find some new interesting blogs.  I sure did.  I am not sure that I can stop at just five though.

Chicago Theatre Blog
I like to think of the Chicago Theater Blog as a sort of “bulletin board” for the Chicago live theater scene – including reviews, news, video clips, audition info, theater website links, and even theater gossip.

AFA Today
In an ongoing effort to make the Armchair Football Association the most engaging and entertaining fantasy football leagues, I have decided to utilize the proactive nature of a blog to chronicle the league for the 2007 season and beyond.

Hokku
Many years ago I noticed that hokku — the centuries-old Nature-based verse form — was in danger of being lost and forgotten entirely.  People were not only mistakenly confusing it with haiku, but they also — even the supposed “authorities” of the haiku community — had seemingly no longer any real knowledge of the principles and standards of hokku.

Club Penguin News
I go on Club Penguin practically every day. The times I go on are from about 3:00 pm. to 5:30 pm. If you want to find me then go on the last flag on the right and the last server. I am usually in the town answering questions that all of my friends have asked. If you have any questions then ask me on Club Penguin or comment me on this page.
