I just got a notice from Mike at 10,000 Birds that they are in need of hosts for I and the Bird. If you are a new bird blogger or one who has been at it for awhile and would like to jump start some of your site traffic, this is a great and free way to do it.
Basically, you host it and people send you one of their best bird posts from the last two weeks. You put them together in one blog entry--linking to their sites and posts and put it together as a theme. My theme was a tabloid format--oh my gosh, I just had a memory that one of the people who submitted an entry to that one complained I didn't take him seriously. I pointed out to him that I didn't take anyone seriously in that post, even myself. He warned that I should treat him with more respect because well known people read his blog, like David Sibley among others. Ooooooooooo. I wonder if that blog is still going, it was kind of a one trick pony. I'll let you see if you can figure out who it was.
Boy, that was a tangent--didn't expect to go down that road! Anyway, I and the Bird needs hosts and if you haven't done it before, it's a fun way to learn about different blogs and get traffic to your site. Here are the dates for the next few months:
