BlogDay 2006 coming!

Today I was searching out blog terms etc. on the net trying to come up to speed with all the acronyms etc. that I don't recognise on blogs when I came upon Blogday on Wikipedia, which apparently is 31st August, which of course I didn't know because I wasn't blogging last year.

Seeing as the whole spirit of the thing is that each blogger recommends 5 blogs, preferably from outside their own country or culture I just wanted to the heads up to others like me who hadn't heard of it. Hopefully it will allow us time to come across blogs that we recommend from outside our own current circles. I don't know about anyone else but it can be quite difficult to get to blogs outside your circle sometimes without having to go through a million absolute crap ones.

So here's what's supposed to happen according to the BlogDay website:

"What is BlogDay?
BlogDay was initiated with the belief that bloggers should have one day which will be dedicated to know other bloggers, from other countries or areas of interests. In that day Bloggers will recommend about them to their Blog visitors.

What will happen on BlogDay?
In one long moment In August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post a recommendation of 5 new Blogs, Preferably, Blogs different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. On this day, blog surfers will find themselves leaping and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.

BlogDay posting instructions:

1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending on them on BlogDay 2005
3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a a link to the recommended Blogs
4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2006 and a link to BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org

you really don't want to do that.

If you want to try a different blog-go to blogger central and do a search of any word-there WILL be a blog for it.

You could end up attracting all the weirdos,job dodgers,pervs,wasters and rangers supporters that are out there.......

Noel: as far as I can see the point is that you seek out blogs that appeal to you from different cultures, no differently to how people already blogroll but simply that it's a concerted effort on one day to celebrate blogging. Maybe I'm naive and missing something here, perhaps that other Irish bloggers experienced last year with it but it sounds like a good idea to me.

Nice wee blog you have here, by the way.

Ciao !
