Speedlinking – Blogger Appreciation Day

by derek on April 14, 2008 · 17 comments

When I started my Speedlinking series, I wanted to use it as a means of highlighting fellow bloggers and/or posts that I feel are worth reading. In addition, I have used the series to share a little link love with the most vocal readers each month as well as those that refer the most traffic.
Earlier today, I had the pleasure of receiving a little link love courtesy of Chris Garrett (who I am looking forward to meeting at SOBCon) as he participated in Blogger Appreciation Day by thanking the people that have added the most comments to his blog.
In the event that you haven’t heard about Blogger Appreciation Day, it was an idea started by Darren Rowse as a way to spend a little time performing a few random acts of kindness and providing encouragement to our fellow bloggers.
Not wanting to steal the same idea that Chris used to thank the most vocal readers, I thought that I would give a quick shout of thanks to the most recent readers – as witnessed by the MyBlogLog and BlogCatalog widgets located in the footer.
Without further ado I would like to thank the following people for stopping by…

MyBlogLog Visitors

BlogCatalog Visitors

While I am catching the tail end of the unofficial Blogger Appreciation Day, don’t let the date on the calendar prevent you from appreciating other bloggers and visitors to your site.
All of you that take the time to stop by my little slice of the Interweb are truly appreciated and I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to share dialog with all of you. This blog would not be what it is today without all of you and I am very grateful for that.
Thanks!

Stay In The Loop!

Thanks, Derek. And I’ve just noticed that the acronym for “Blogger Appreciation Day” is BAD. I don’t think that was intentional, but I like to make random observations.
It’s great to be out of the Akismet jail. =)

Commenting and talking to other bloggers is fun. In fact, its the most fun part of blogging. I mean, most times, I end up writing posts on my blog like someone is putting a gun to my head and forcing me to write. That’s no fun. So, question – Do you enjoy writing posts on your blog?

Nice idea. Thank everyone for stopping by around the middle of the month. Or is this a once in a year thing?
