every blog has their day...

and it would seem that mine is tomorrow... (although one could argue that mine has lasted this whole week) :)

i received an email[1] earlier informing me that i am one of 5 bloggers to be blogged on by aj venter, aka silentcoder, for blog day. did you even know there's a blog day? apparently there is.

according to the blog day site:
BlogDay was initiated with the belief that bloggers should have one day which will be dedicated to know other bloggers, from other countries or areas of interests. In that day Bloggers will recommend about them to their Blog visitors.

What will happen on BlogDay?

In one long moment In August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post a recommendation of 5 new Blogs, Preferably, Blogs different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. On this day, blog surfers will find themselves leaping and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.

BlogDay posting instructions:

1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting

2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending on them on BlogDay 2005

3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a a link to the recommended Blogs

4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and

5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: and a link to BlogDay web site at


fascinating... i'd be interested to know how many other bloggers actually knew about the day, and how many will be participating. i'll certainly be keeping an eye out for the review tomorrow!

[1] aj wrote a very nice email which i'll leave with you, in case you're interested...
Hi everybody,
Some of you know me, some of you have never heard of me. What you all have in common is that I read your blogs.
Now tomorrow (August 31) is international blogday (see all blogday participants around the world will post an entry linking with a short description to five blogs they reccomend to their readers. Part of the process is to let your chosen five link-recipients know in advance.

You five are my list, for an entry which will be posted at midnight, South African time tonight.

In the spirit of blogday, this means that I believe you write something interesting. Of each of you I can say that I agree wholeheartedly with some of your writings and dissagree as passionately with others - which in my mind is practically the point of blogging - sharing ideas and discussing them, with every point of view getting fair coverage.

So then, this is part one complete - letting you all know. Part two will then be posting the actual article tonight.
In case anybody has forgotten (or do not know) my blog is at:

Feel free to take a look tomorrow and see how I described you.
