BlogDay 2008 - is it still August 31?

I've talked about BlogDay 2008 before, but I couldn't really delve into it until late today. (I was kinda sorta separated from computers and stuff.)

I've just reviewed my posts on BlogDay 2007, and I've looked at BlogDay 2008 entries from Eye of Polyphemus, Jeff Pulver, Kyle Lacy, Shey Smith, Chris Brogan, and The Inquisitr. So now, let's re-review the suggestions (I won't call them rules):

1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2008
3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs
4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: and a link to the BlogDay web site at

Last year when I did this, I actively sought out blogs that I had never seen in my life. This year, I think I'll just check for blogs that I have already read, but haven't been reading for a long time.


I had been reading this in email form for a while, but recently began subscribing to its RSS feed. This provides a good alternative to findBIOMETRICS; although the latter is valuable, it's always good to get vertical market news from more than one source. (I use various Google blog and news searches also.)


Clifford of Red Stick Rant brought this blog to my attention a few months ago. It looks at Episcopal/Anglican theology from the right perspective. (You can laugh if you want to, you can leave your Millennium Development Goals behind.)


A political blog with a definite point of view, but Doug's Darkworld also takes time to explore the issues, rather than just saying "Bush is a fascist, d00d." The coverage of South Ossetia is highly recommended.


Just ran across this recently. The title says it all. (Example post: Follow your houseplant on Twitter.)


In the process of writing this post, I discovered that I had never actually subscribed to Erin Kotecki Vest's blog. I've read her on Twitter and on FriendFeed (in fact, I just read an entry of hers this morning), but I just realized that I had never subscribed to her blog. This omission has now been corrected.
