30 Thursday (well, just 15)

September 2, 2010

Last week I had the idea that I would ask for 30 posts, I’d pick my 5 favorite, and I’d post those 5 on Thursday. I was calling this #30Thursday on Twitter. However, the posts that I got were so good that I knew it would be too hard to pick just the top five. So instead, every week, I’m asking people to send me blog posts of interest – their own, others’, however you want to do it. And I’ll post the first 30 I get on Thursday. I hope that other people begin to do this as well. It’s too easy to fall into the trap of just reading the same blogs. It’s nice to read new blogs and to promote other peoples’ blogs, too. So here are this week’s top 30 blog posts (in my world).

This week, since I’m just getting started, I didn’t get many recommendations, so a lot of these are blogs that I want to pass on myself. However, starting every Thursday afternoon, let me know of a blog post you think I should read and tell my readers about. Hopefully next week we’ll have a full 30! In the meantime, enjoy :)

      No problem, my friend. And that’s the idea! You can ask for your own 30 posts and exponentially increase the sharing. That be the idea! :)
