Blog Spots

It's been quite a while since I last did a Blog Spot post, but here we go...

First up, the exciting news that About Town is back in action, with trs blogging about all sorts of things.

Red 'Fec, who tipped me off about the above, have added a number of new bloggers, including a boy. This should be interesting...

A makeover is in progress at stanselen (which is making me think about doing one too) and Aucklander at Large has finally given into progress and shifted to the New Blogger. I'd also love to go along and see Jeremy present his Masters thesis, but sadly I live a wee bit too far away. Can I suggest a national tour?

Internationally, April 28th is going to be Take Back the Blog Blogswarm Day. A few key quotes from the host page, linked in the previous sentence:

...this page will host the April 28, 2007 Take Back the Blog! Blogswarm in
support of the rights of women to participate fully in all aspects of our
society, including specifically online in the world of blogging but indeed
everywhere and at all times, day and night, without fear of harassment,
intimidation, sexual harassment, online stalking and slander, predation or violence of any sort.
The goal is both to provide a convenient compilation of (undoubtedly excellent)
content for readers' benefit and to make a show of strength and of organization
within the blogosphere from bloggers with different perspectives towards common
I'm going to give it a go, as long as I remember. I always forget these kinds of things unfortunately. But being on the other side of the date line should give me a head start in theory!
If you are a new blogger, or have something new to share about your blog, please feel free to add a link in comments.

As close to ready as it's ever going to get - I'd be interested to know what you think.

Thanks for adding your comment Craig, I wasn't sure if you wanted to be plugged yet or not so I left you out of the blog spot post but I hoped you'd comment!

No problem Bruce, now I just have to remember to finish the draft I've written and put it up on the right day ;-)
