OgBl day comes by once more 



As we said last year
the numbers 3108, the date today (we're cheating and sticky-posting this a day in advance*) if you use the right typeface, and squint at them out of the corner of your eye, look like the letters BlOg. Unless you're American, of course, in which case today is OgBl day.
So, here's Nir Ofir's new (kinda, as in, we just found it) Blog Day blog (try saying that fast, six times).

And here's the drill (quoting from Nir's original charming post, because for some weird reason, he has the text-as-image thing happening on the new site, instead of copy-pasteable text)
I believe that we bloggers have to have one day in the year which will be dedicated to know other bloggers, from other countries or areas of interests. I think, that not only that we need to know other bloggers; we need also to recommend about them to our Blog visitors.

When I’m trying to see the end in mind, in this is day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs (in the same time). In this day all Blog web surfers will find themselves leaping and discovering new, unknown blogs.
Right. Clear?
1. Recommend five blogs
2. Introduce them
3. Link to the Blog Day site : http://www.blogday.org/
4. Use this Technorati Tag: <a href="http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2006" rel="tag">BlogDay2006</a>

Off you go the. The sun's up. It's time we slept. We shall be back before the 31st to post our recommendations.

Update: Desi Pundit introduces its own D.I.Y. Indan Bloggers Directory (it's a wiki; you go enter your URL yourself). So with that, plus the IndiBloggers Index of Indian Blogs (pretty much the best indie-index we've seen), and perhaps the Indian Bloggers List and a glance at this post on Quick Online Tips, you should be able to scrounge up a list. Though we recommend that you observe the spirit of this thing (and what, to us, is the essence of the web) and go global. If you've been kind of parochial in your blog-reading, you could do no better than go visit the most excellent (we've finally forgiven them for not giving us a job) Global Voices to find interesting blogs from all over the world.

(Hm. That's five blog links. Sort of. Megalinks. They'll give you so much more than five. So you think you can let us get away with not posting our list-of-five?)



*Consistent, aren't we?

I agree that the entire purpose of Blog Day is to go global.

I gave the desi twist on that 'directory' post only for DesiPundit (if we went global, we would be a watered down version of GV, right?)To be frank, we had that directory thingie simmering for a long time. Just piggyback riding on the whole Blog Day hungama :)

No no no! You have to link to five blogs.:)

You may have forgiven Global Voices, but you are far too kind. I didn't forgive them yet. They really, really should have hired you. A very bad call on their part. But where are your five links? You are the one that signed me up for OgBl day, after all.
