I’m coming in a bit late on this, but I’m eager to participate nonetheless. Kristen has noticed that all around the blogosphere people are having a hard time. All you need to do is pull up to the gas pumps to know how hard wallets are being pinched lately.
So she’s proposed a project for the month of August. If you’re reading blogs from a feed reader, take a bit of time to click out and open up the actual blog itself. If the blogger is using any kind of ads on their site, clicking to the site will help boost that blogger’s earnings for the month. While you’re there, maybe click around. Hit up the archives and see if there’s an entry that you never read before and click on it to read something from the past.
If they’re not using ads, click over anyway and leave a comment or find the contact info to send an email. Even if it’s not helping their wallet, it will put a smile on their face (you know, assuming your commentary is nice. If it’s not nice, then please don’t bother!).
Comments are always nice anyway. I love comments. I can always use more of those because it helps to make you feel like you’re not sitting here blogging at yourself. And if you’re inflating someone’s ad earnings while you comment, that’s even better.
Screw the recession. Let’s blog it!
