Blog Day 2005

August 31st, 2005 · 1 Comment

From Ethan Zuckerman, David Weinberger and Rebecca MacKinnon, I learned about Blog Day 2005.

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.

With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. In this way, all Blog web surfers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

I confess that my first reaction to BlogDay was to ignore it: I feel I already have too many things on my to-do list. I have more blogs to read and topics to write than I can post.

But then I began exploring the Bridge Blog Index wiki and I had a lot of fun looking through the lists of blogs organized by continent and nation.

Here are five blogs I discovered in the Bridge Blog Index wiki and put into my aggregator:

Nicaragua Living

South Pole (yes, I was surprised to see many blogs from Antarctica!)

Hacktivate (Malawi)

Voice in the Desert

My Africa: Police Business

And I thought I would add to this post three more blogs from women who spoke at Blogher:

Sepia Mutiny

Noriko Takiguchi’s blog

Em Duas Lingas

Go take a look at these blogs…or this wiki…and make a list of your own! It’s fun!
