Today is Blogday, celebrating an effort to push some folks in the long tail of the blog a little bit up the curve.

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.

Okay, but since we are celebrating, let’s sing!

Happy Blog Day to You!
Happy Blog Day to You!
Happy Blog Day dear blogosphere!
Happy Blog Day to You!

Do I now owe any royalties to the copyright holder? Apparently not!.

For my puny piece, I combed through my recently comments/trackbacks (yes, ones that have sifted through the spam protection) for these 5, before they posted comments, unknown blogs to me:

  1. Sum Musing Orla from Toronto is doing “Sum politics. Sum fun. Sum research. Sum more fun. Sum rants. Sum silliness. Sum seriousness. Sum statistics. Sum ‘aha’s. Sum thoughts.”
  2. Help Us Get To BETT“Just a bunch of teachers trying to change the world”– some Moodlers are aiming high to get to the British Educational Training and Technology (BETT) Show which apparently is one of the biggest educational technology conventions in the universe. Like good Moodlers, they are collaborative, open, and like knocking at the doors of the establishment.
  3. Rejon: The Jon Phillips Portal. Jon is “an open source developer, programmer, artist, designer, writer, educator, lecturer, and curator with 12+ years of experience creating communities and working in and around computing culture. He currently is working on teaching, freelance programming, consulting, and writing jobs to pay the bills prior to entering a PhD program in the near future.” Check out his stuff as the utilities bill is pending ;-)
  4. Speechi Story a blog in both French and English “everything you wanted to know- and more- about Speechi”– Speechi apparently is a software that does the Powerpoint to Flash dance.
  5. Cognitive Dissonance has a clever title referring to an academic term I need to look up. I’m having trouble trying to locate the links that has the two line “about statement”, but looks people writing who are members of or interested in AECT (Association for Educational Communications and Technology)

That’s my five, how about yours?

PS- Irony, for what its worth. The Blogday site is a wiki ;-)

    Actually, CogDiss is just my place for ranting about a variety of educational issues, many of which relate to the AECT —

    It started when I got kicked off the listserv for fomenting discussion.

    Thanks for the plug! :D
