Happy Blog Day!

By: Jessica B.
Blog Day 2008

What is Blog Day?

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors. With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.
BlogDay Posting Instructions
  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 and a link to the BlogDay Web Site

My Picks:

All Things G&D – She’s already awesome because she’s from Wisconsin and in Badger-country but she’s also great because she loves Kate Spade and understands that in Wisconsin, showing up drunk to a restaurant should not be judged.
Golightly – Meg is awesome. Her posts always make me laugh and her inner Rage Girl reminds me of my own :)
Life in the Left Lane – Recently married, works in travel PR and living in Hot-lanta. I think if she lived in Chicago, we’d be BFFs.
Places Never Planned – Cute as a button, and funny as all h*ll. Plus, she loves the Beatles white album and records, just like me! It’s the final step…in awesomeness.
Tied Together With A Smile – Another awesome Wisconsin girl who loves the Hills, football, baseball and can divide her loyalties between the Cubs and Brewers when necessary :)
Those are my inaugural Blog Day picks. It wasn’t an easy choice but I look forward to taking part again next year!
Weekend recap coming tomorrow Рfull of shenanigans.

    According to my own exploration, thousands of people on our planet get the loan from good creditors. Thence, there is a good possibility to receive a sba loan in all countries.

    I know this is a bit late, but thanks for the shout out! I agree and think we’d be friends too if we lived in the same city! :)

    Thanks for the shoutout! I will definitely have to do this next year.

  4. G+D says:

    Hey girl–thank you so much for the shout-out!! You’re too sweet. I’m such a newbie—I didn’t even know this blog day existed until I saw your post. Guess I’ll have to wait until next year to whore out my blogging buddies.

    Looking forward to checking out the other blogs you posted about. And thanks again!!

    blog day reminds me of a scavenger hunt on the first day of camp where you have find someone from your home state and someone by the name of ‘craig’ and so on. It’s outgoing, exciting, and all about breaking new ground with people.

    on that note, i would LOVE to go to a meetup next weekend! The only thing on my books so far is the redbull flugtog on saturday (yeah!) but otherwise I’m all free and ready to party.

  8. Katie says:

    Thanks for stopping by the other day! It’s always good to get connected with more local bloggers. And if you count Wisconsin as local, it looks like I have a few more to add to my list after your recap today!

    I’m loving this day, but my G reader is getting so many new adds I’m hoping I can keep up! I love Places Never Planned too, how could you not like someone who loves Beatles White Album? It was the first CD I ever owned. True story!
