Don't get too excited, your boss isn't likely to give you the day off work. There's actually no such thing as Blog Appreciation Day outside of Brendaland, which is where you are right now. But if somebody wants to start a serious movement, that's fine with me. You might want to consider choosing a name that makes a classier-sounding acronym than "BAD", however.
Last week CNN.com reported on a Gallup poll showing that although three-quarters of Americans use the internet, only 26% were familiar with blogs and only 7% say they read blogs at least a few times a week.
How about that? You're way cooler than you imagined. You're a trendsetter, part of that adventurous 7% of Americans Who Read Blogs. Hooray for you and hooray for blogs!
I have proclaimed this Blog Appreciation Day here in Brendaland. If you'd like to celebrate BAD, leave a comment below and tell everyone about the blogs you enjoy reading. Post a couple of good links and tell us why we should click on 'em. And if you have a blog, go ahead and toot your own horn. Just keep it all family-friendly, please. My little sister and one of my kids reads this stuff.
