Blogroll Amnesty Day – The Aftermath

sci_ill_mirror.jpgI’ve enjoyed the last couple of days in blogtopia, or blogistan, or wherever it is I am right now. Because of the tireless efforts of others (in particular the noble Swift whose generosity of spirit stands as a lesson for all conservatives) I’ve come into contact with a few blogs that, under normal circumstances I probably wouldn’t have. Some of these include;

  • The Great Endarkenment – which boasts the second greatest blog title in the known universe (although upon closer inspection it seems the title was purloined from someone called Anne).
  • Zippidy Doo Da – was an interesting miscellany, just the way I like it (in particular I really enjoyed this post).
  • Monkeyfister – which boasts, IMHO, the greatest blog title in the known universe, because everyone enjoys fisting monkeys.
  • Bildungblog – a blog full of interesting photos and humorous comments and commentary (like this one for example).
  • Zen Comix – I like comics.
  • The Field Negro – probably my favorite of all the new blogs I’ve discovered over the last few days (try this on for size).
  • d r i f t g l a s s – I like this guy’s style a lot (for example)

And this is just a few examples of what I’ve perused since Sunday.

So, speaking personally, among the beneficial consequences of B.A.D.;

  1. I’ve come into contact with some high-quality blogs sooner than I would have if left to my own devices.
  2. I feel like I’m in some small way part of a community.
  3. As a consequence I feel compelled to be a better blogger; less choleric, more phlegmatic, or sanguine even.

And, again speaking personally, the stark truth I’ve learned about myself and my blog in the wake of B.A.D.;

  1. I have added no one to my blogroll that isn’t already a far more successful blogger than I am.
  2. I hate myself.

All in all quite a humbling experience.

    Well, you’d better add me, then. Or I’ll be forced to send my sole reader over to your corner of blogistan to, shall we say, assess your health or lack thereof.

    ps: I wouldn’t worry – it’s my mother and she’s in her late eighties. Just help her find the door afterwards, there’s a good fellow.
