Blog the Recession!

In case you haven't already heard, Kristen over at Motherhood Uncensored (warning, it's a rockin' blog but it is what it says it is -- uncensored. If there are little eyes around, don't click, mkay?) has started something called "Blog the Recession". It's premise is simple -- every bit of traffic and page views helps us bloggers out -- especially the ones who are still newbies like me -- so the idea is that you click through to the actual website from your feed readers (I'm talking to you BioGirl - but I'm only pickin' on you because I know you read CSC in a reader) so that the blogs that you read can get some much-needed traffic.

Why do we need traffic, you ask? Well -- I guess with summer time everyone traffic is down because people are on vay-cay and just aren't reading their dear ole blogs like they usually do. I myself went on a two week vacation to Europe where I was required to PAY to access my precious internet. Of course, I slacked off in my reading during that time, frankly because I couldn't afford to continue to pay for internet just to read all of the latest posts on the web.

Honestly, every little page view helps -- so if you are a frequent reader of a blog, then go on, click through your reader and onto the actual website itself to help the blogger out. And of course, while I appreciate all of you subscribers who read this daily though email or a reader, I also appreciate it when you click on over to my site and hit me up with some much needed traffic.

Traffic = more cool stuff that I can bring you on a regular basis. And who doesn't like cool stuff?

Exactly.

So go ahead, help us Blog this Recession. Click around, leave a few comments if you are so inclined. Your blogger friends all thank you.

Hello, another "recession blogger" here from Kristen's site. Jumping on the bandwagon, better late than never, right? Anyway, thought your site design was especially cute. Trying to visit all the participants at least once this month, but I had to leave a comment about yours. Amusing, looks great, keep up the good work!
