Have you ever noticed that the date 3108 (August 31st) looks like the word “Blog”? I have noticed it when I was in the first Blog conference that was held in Israel and I doodled it on a paper. On that day I started to roll an idea that I hope would become a global tradition:
I know, it looks like I am some kind of megalomaniac, but the truth is that I’m coming from a very humble point of view: I believe that we bloggers have to have one day in the year which will be dedicated to know other bloggers, from other countries or areas of interests. I think, that not only that we need to know other bloggers; we need also to recommend about them to our Blog visitors.
When I’m trying to see the end in mind, in this is day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs (in the same time). In this day all Blog web surfers will find themselves leaping and discovering new, unknown blogs.
Isn’t it a celebration?
I am suggesting this kind of activity because in the last months I felt that the more blogs there are, the less time I’m spending on new web logs. Because of the overload of information, I’m just visiting my favorite Blog and therefore, I’m sure that I miss a lot of good blogs.
I’m sure that some of you ask, “Isn’t your suggestion looks, feels and smells like a Blog Roll I already have on my Blog?” Well, Whoever thought like that missed the whole point: The purpose is to get you bloggers to discover new people, visit their blogs and tell the world about this person and his Blog.
In this post I laid the ground for starting this kind of an event. I hope to hear comments from you bloggers and ways to make this day even better. As of leading this operation, I hope that someone will pick the glove and join me. I can immediately start to interest other Blog services in Israel and, I can guaranty that more than 30,000 bloggers form our Blog service (blog.Tapuz.co.il) will get the exposure to the project.
