The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Blogosphere, a joint venture of mine with Troy Worman, is looking to expand. We have been writing about our discoveries for a year now.
Yes, happy blogversary to you and I Troy for our work on Hitchhiker!
The purpose of Hitchhiker is to create a simple post to share another blogger site that has been "found" in your explorations. Preferably the blogger would be part of the "long tail". But the blogger site would be doing something different or in an interesting way.
As Troy so aptly put it a year ago:
The blogosphere is a giant time capsule that offers a panoramic view of our world. It is a collection of personal expressions that represent virtually every human perspective of our times. It is filled with millions of personal accounts, diaries, essays, stories and photos. It is filled with art. It is filled with emotion. It is filled with thought. It is our collective conscience. Better than any collection of books or articles, the blogosphere will capture the story of our existence.
I added to this:
I look forward to getting to a trail and hike in the spring.
You get a water bottle, a snack, your good comfy boots,
your camera, etc. together in your day pack
and arrive at the trail head.
You sign in on the trail log.
Check the sign out comments, usually some good info there.
Almost a real time update that the guide book can not provide.
And start walking.
Will you join us on this hike?
It will be simple to do.
As you find a good site, new to you at least, that you think others might appreciate, write a brief post about it.
You can include a quote or two (or more) to show what they are capable of.
Include something from their About section
Include the links of course.
And add your point of view, why is this something we should look at?
If you need a sample, visit Hitchhiker and view the archives. There are over 300 posts to choose from.
Send the posting to me shersteve_@_gmail_com
You can send the file in HTML format or Word doc, or whatever is convenient for you. If I have trouble working with it, I'll let you know.
I'll post the note, provide you with credit, tags, and a link so you can reference it.
If you would like to do this on a regular basis, then let me know and we can work out the details.
PS - one other important item, the posting should be positive. There are so many blogs in the world we should focus on the ones that should have the light shine upon then. There is no need to "reward" those that do not need deserve this light.
