Blogroll Amnesty Day Is Here!

The Blogger at work: Presses Publish Sees Typo!

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.

The three rules are simple:

  1. You are not allowed to complain or mention your blog’s low traffic until you have been posting daily for a year.
  2. If you’re little, link other blogs that are new or still growing their audience, and encourage them to practice their craft daily.
  3. 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:

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?)

    Once again, your unfailing support is touching. Thanks.

    Can one complain about low traffic if one has done 24 posts in 24 hours?

    If I grow up, I wanna be just like you, TG.
