Blog The Recession (All the Cool Kids are Doin’ It)

You know how I cave to peer pressure.

Well, the brilliant Kristen from Motherhood Uncensored has come up with a brilliant plan:

The premise is simple. If you read blogs, then for the month of August, make the “pledge” to click through from your feed reader. No obligation to leave a hilarious comment or send a long stalkerish email (although both, within reason, are always lovely). Just click through to the blog (not on ads unless you are so led) and if you’re feeling generous, click around to their older posts.

Just those extra page views can make a big difference for bloggers who could really use the help, or in my case, where page views don’t matter so much, a big fat ego boost.

Since I pretty much do this anyway I figured I might as well try to peer pressure the rest of you into doing it too. It is for the good of the blogosphere!

  1. Clickin’ through for ya!

  2. This is not going to bode well for my productivity at work…

  3. Clicked.

  4. Here is your ego boost :)

  5. I LOVE Google Reader but it does make it difficult when bloggers count on you viewing their actual site for ad revenue and it’s also nice for others to see your design changes, etc. I do make an effort to click through now and then to make comments, but I will make even more of an effort this month. Thanks for the reminder!

  6. I clicked over to say I’ll do it. I didn’t know it actually made a difference to do that.

  7. look! i’m clicking through!

  8. Me too!

  9. I have every intention of winning this money back.

  10. Oh, the clicking I will do! So much for work or parenting this month.

  11. I found you through Kristin’s site and before posting about it, I thought I’d go through and comment on all the blogs she listed, as well as those who left comments! So I’m in!!!

  12. I do not, nor have I ever used a reader…I’m always a clicker.

  13. Count me in … if I can ever figure out how to do the whole “reader” thing. :)

  14. Me likey.

  15. I just joined the Blog the Recession. Such a great idea and fun as well. Another fun perk is finding great new blogs to frequent :)

  16. Reading all the blogs from kristen’s site and clicking ads, just trying to do my part!

  17. Click. click. I’m here!
