Woot-woot! My pal Skippy reminded me that it’s Blogroll Amnesty Day, Scissorheads!
As Dr. Zaius used to say, we’ve gone from invisible to only obscure!
Now I like to think every day at MPS is B.A.D, but today is special because of the history of B.A.D., essentially that some of the so-called A-List bloggers gave themselves amnesty for cutting off of their blogrolls all of the non A-List bloggers. Sort of like a clique in high school.
(As Driftglass says of the MSM, “There is a club. You are not in it.)
And so there came to be a rebel alliance of all of the rest of Blogtopia (and yes, Skippy did coin that phrase) and thus we celebrate the anniversary of the Day of Long Knives every year.
- 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.
The Prime Directive of B.A.D. is to link to 5 blogs that have less traffic than your blog (and how you are supposed to know that remains a mystery) that you think deserve more traffic. And maybe some blog bigger than yours will link to you. But the point is this: solidarity amongst the smaller, independent voices because we are writing some of the best work on the internet.
So without further a-do, I’m linking to the following 5 blogs chosen at random from the blogroll:
- You’re Already Screwed
- E’Ville Times
- Electronic Cerebrectomy
- Politicians are Poodyheads
- Ramona’s Voices
Every one of them is a proven winner – now go read them and give 5 blogs some linky-luv. That’s an order from the “Godfather of Small Blogs” as the Big Bad Bald Bastard calls me. (See what I did there?)
