Blog Running – ‘blogroll amnesty day is here again’!!!

From the great people over at Skippy The Bush Kangaroo….

we are reminded by our good friend batocchio to remember that this is the 8th anniversary of the original and the 9th year of commemorating the traditional al weisel/jon swift memorial blogroll amnesty day memorium and celebration.

an explanation of the history and motivations behind this celebration can be found here. the rules, set out by blue gal, are here. ego satisfaction in the form of a meme-orandum post when this tradition was really taking off can be found here.

short version: blogtopia (and yes, we coined that phrase) only works if we support each other (no, it’s not very libertarian of us, thanks for noticing). so it behooves us all, even if we don’t have hooves, to give attention in the form of linkage to our favorite blogs that don’t get as much traffic as our own (paying it downward, as it were).

blogroll amnesty day will be celebrated here all weekend long. so please feel free to email us with any and all posts about b.a.d. and we will happily link to them.

be sure to stop by and say hello to

vagabond scholar
bad tux the snarky penguin
mike the mad biologist
naked capitalism
whiskey fire
the field negro
simply left behind

and we’d be remiss without thanking

john, susie, mike and the whole team at crooks and liars
blue gal
tengrain
driftglass
athenae and her gang at first draft
(existential shout out to former first draftian holden caufield, who used to blog here at skippy’s, and now no longer appears on the internet anywhere ever, by his own choice… how j.d. salinger of him!)
jesse over at pandagon

and of course, our one and only cookie jill

remember, blogging is like herd immunity. it doesn’t work unless we all participate!
