Because I’m a “follower” in the bloggy world and because I check my stats/comments ALL THE TIME, I present “Blog the Recession.”
The premise is simple: help your fellow bloggers through our current economic situation (Like What’s That Smell, I have to ask are we really in a recession? As my finance major husband would say, “that’s debatable”. . . but, I digress).
Blogger Kristen, of Motherhood Uncensored (by the way, emphasis on the “uncensored” part) is the originator of this concept:
The premise is simple. If you read blogs, then for the month of August,
make the â€œpledgeâ€ to click through from your feed reader. No obligation to leave a hilarious comment or send a long stalkerish email (although both, within reason, are always lovely). Just click through to the blog (not on ads unless you are so led) and if youâ€™re feeling generous, click around to their older posts.
Just those extra page views can make a big difference for bloggers who could really use the help, or in my case, where page views donâ€™t matter so much, a big fat ego boost.
That’s it. So, as you spend your child’s naptime, coffee in hand, browsing throught the lives of others (Or, is that just me???), use your feed reader, links, blogroll, twitter, entrecard, etc., to visit some blogs!
This helps in two ways — (1) people who have monetized or set up ads will recieve funds based on the extra page views, and (2) people
like me who have not monetized will get a big ol’ “ego boost” from all of the people who stop by to visit.
But, wait! There’s more!!!!
