Alright, I'm in. I guess I'll just cave to all the peer pressure but only because it is such a great idea. Kristen of Motherhood Uncensored came up with the genius she calls Blogging the Recession.
This is what she has to say:
'The premise is simple. If you read blogs, then for the month of August, make the "pledge" 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 you'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 don't matter so much, a big fat ego boost.'
Seeing as how I normally do this anyway I thought I would jump on the bandwagon for my fellow bloggers. I know, I really go out of my way, don't I? I'm so helpful like that.
I just want to add one little thing. CLICK ON THE ADS! DO IT, DAMMIT! You know you want to!!!! You're here anyway! They are RIGHT THERE! Right next to the post you are reading! They are just WAITING to be clicked on. Don't leave them out. Don't make them sad. Do you want to make them sad????
Ahem, I mean, if you do feel so inclined as to click on some of the ever so useful (SERIOUSLY! Have you seen some of the cool coupons and deals on these ads???) advertisements on my (or any other fabulous blogger's) sidebar I wouldn't be mad at ya.
Or if you don't want to that's fine too. I will say I am completely grateful that you even read my drivel. And not only do you read it but you comment too. I have about 100 visits every day (I am such an amateur compared to some of you) but out of those I get approximately 40 comments. That is incredible! Seriously! So (being completely genuine here) thank you all so much for all the support you have been giving me, even throughout a blogging recession. And keep those gorgeous comments coming!
