Blogger pal and sometimes client, Jeff Pulver, continues to innovate in the blogosphere.
Back in December 2006 he started a game of ”Blog-Tag” which thousands of bloggers took part of and in fact some are still playing.
He is now promoting the idea of BlogDay 3 which takes place on August 31st.
To take part, all you have to do is suggest five blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from your own culture, point of view and attitude.
The goal of this version of blog-tag is for the readers of these blog posts to find themselves leaping around and discovering new voices and Blogs to explore. This in turn will help celebrate the discovery process of finding new people, their voices and their blogs.
When creating your BlogDay blog entry, please try to follow these instructions:
1. List five Blogs that you find interesting and if you can tell, include the city/country where they are from.
2. Identify five Bloggers to tag to join in this game with you. I recommend emailing the bloggers you tag to give them a heads up of you tagging them.
3. Use the tag: BlogDay2007 in your blog post.
Here are my 5 blogs for you to review and check out:
1. ISRAEL: Shai Agassi’s "The Long Tailpipe" (love the name)
2. UK: Pete Townshend (as in The Who) Blog – aptly named: Pete Townshend (Who Is He?)
3. JAPAN: Information Architect. Specifically, I have linked to their Web 2.0 Web Trend Map.
4. UK: The Guardian Unlimited Blog. OK, this is not a person per se. It’s a blog from the UK, published by The Guardian (the newspaper) on the music and culture scene.
5. Texas: While Jeff Pulver’s post on this event recommended that we illustrated blogs from other parts of the world with other cultures, Texas is, in its own right a country and culture of its own. With that being said, I am listing the Texas Monthly Blogs as my final choice. You’ll find Paul Burka’s blog, Delay of Game (about sports – what else?), Stand Up Desk, a stream of current news from the Editors of the magazine, and State of Mine, by Evan Smith, Editor of the magazine.
So there you have it. Thanks Jeff for bringing this idea forward.
Great stuff, and a great way to discover new sites, new writers and
different points of view.
