Blogroll Amnesty Day
email skippy if you want the code to this logo!
Well... As I understood things from Blue Gal (who was kind enough to give me a few pointers along my way), the idea behind BAD was for people to post links to blogs less trafficked than their own. Usually that's a bit difficult in my case as I only average maybe 5 hits/day MAX. A big day, a huge spike in ratings, is 17 hits. Now there have been two very notable exceptions: Twice I have been linked to on the blog round up at Crooks and Liars. Most recently this past Wednesday, resulting in over 300 hits. Miniscule by Kos standards, but a hell of a day for me (Thank You very much Mr Finnigan). The first time I squandered my opportunity, by immediately developing a writer's block which lasted a month. Every writer should have a point when he writes, and mine attempt at one is this:
I initially decided that I would link to anyone who left a comment on my blog, and I believe I have done so. I will also adopt the Swiftian policy of linking to anyone who blogrolls me. Leave me a comment, drop me an e-mail or send smoke signals, and it shall be done.
If somehow I am still missing the point of this day, well, forgive me please and perhaps correct me via comment or e-mail.
