Mr. Swift explained the requirements for participation (post linked above) as follows:
Celebrating Blogroll Amnesty Day is easy. You don’t have to put up a tree or a poll or buy candy or flowers, wrap presents or risk your life playing with dangerous fireworks. All you have to do is link to some smaller blogs that you like or celebrate the idea of linking or blogrolling in any way you see fit.
Mr. Kangaroo (linked above) encourages inclusion:
tho we are happy to point out, one need not link exclusively to progressive/liberal blogs. we highly encourage you to find a sensible rightist blog and link thereto. (ha! that’ll keep ya busy for the weekend!)
Ms. Girl (linked above) says, “No excuses.”
Small and newbie bloggers please be aware of the ironclad rule that you are not allowed to make “hey no blog is as small as mine” jokes regarding Blogroll Amnesty Day. The rule is, straight from the queen of the indy blogs herself (ahem), that you are not allowed to complain or mention your blog’s low traffic until you have been posting daily for a year. If you’re little, link other blogs that are new or still growing their audience, and encourage them to practice their craft daily.
To join them in the celebration, I will add at least five new blogs to my blogroll over the next three days. (I added two today, but I’ll not count them.) I’ll also figure out some way to make them stand out without using the acronym for Blogroll Amnesty Day. (Adding a site to the blogroll and labelling it B. A. D. would probably defeat the purpose.)
I won’t necessarily know whether they are bigger or smaller than I, because, frankly, I decided a long time ago not to worry about “hits” all that much, but I will promise that they will be off the main highway and down the side streets of the Inner Tubes.
Addendum, the Next Evening:
Thanks to the Facebook app, “Networked Blogs” (see the sidebar on the main page), I’ve found a bunch of neat blogs.
