Support Your Local Blogger... Again

It's Blogroll Amnesty Day Week!

There is no doubt in my mind that we have come a long way since our last celebration of Blogroll Amnesty Day. Here is last year's B.A.D. post -- check it out.

What a long strange trip it has been, and continues to be.

For some background, Jon Swift chronicles the origins of this festive celebration, and skippy chimes in as well.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Blogroll Amnesty is a concept of peace and harmony that encourages the highlighting of lesser-read blogs. Several of the blogs that I mentioned last year have since become extinct. However, a couple are still around -- and I still read them:

The Absurd Report
The Rude Pundit

New additions for 2009:

C. Alyson Love
Brown Man Thinking Hard
Dizzying Intellect
d r i f t g l a s s
Shots On The House
Simply Left Behind
The American Boy
The Hathos
Vast Variety
Viva Chuck Todd/Viva Rachel Maddow

[if I missed a blog that you think that I should have included, comment freely]

Please visit each and every one of these blogs daily. I know I do!

Happy Blogroll Amnesty to all of you!

This space is designed for thoughtful commentary on politics and media (and whatever else comes to mind). The Pajama Pundit welcomes people from all political stripes to voice opinions freely and without fear of mean-spirited attacks. He does however expect intelligent discussion -- and some understanding of proper grammar usage.

For a more detailed look at commenting, please review our Comment Policy.

Please refrain from personal attacks on authors or other users. Back up your argument with documentation (links to elsewhere on the web). This is a big sandbox -- so please play nicely with one another.

NOTE: For all of the HTML nerds out there (like me), anchor, strong (bold), em (italic) and blockquote tags work within the comment form.



Thanks for the plug PJ. I don't think I have any readers yet. =)

Wow. Thanks so much for the mention. I feel humbled, and I'm checking out the other blogs now for new adds to my blogroll.
