Jeff Pulver started up another game of "blog tag" yesterday in advance of Blog Day 2007, happening August 31. It's always a good opportunity to mix it up a little, and encourage people to check out some blogs you might not otherwise read. The rules are simple:
1. List five Blogs that you find interesting and if you can tell, include the city/country where they are from.
2. Identify five Bloggers to tag to join in this game with you. I recommend emailing the bloggers you tag to give them a heads up of you tagging them.
3. Use the tag: BlogDay2007 in your blog post.
4. (Optionally): Contact the owners of the blogs you shared as your "blogs to take a look at."
I'm going to highlight a few Canadians, especially since so many of my blogger friends are from outside of Canada. So without further ado, here are five interesting Canadian blogs that are a little off the beaten track for readers:
- Billions with Zero Knowledge, the blog of Montreal Canada entrepreneur Austin Hill.
- Venture Law Lines, the Toronto Canada blog of lawyer, and former VC, Suzie Dingwall-Williams.
- My Own Pirate Radio, the
St. CatharinesToronto blogger, smart-guy, and ex-Microsoftie Osh Momoh.
- The Chicken Test, the often whacky musings and videos of Toronto's Bryce Johnson.
- Wood S Lot. Perth Ontario native Mark Woods daily collections of (frequently mildly subversive) literature, poetry, essays and photographs.
And now I'm tagging the following people and asking them to join in: Craig Fitzpatrick, Jim Courtney / Phil Wolff and the rest of the gang at the Skype Journal, Andy Abramson, Matthew Saunders, and Rob Hyndman. Phil and Andy aren't Canadians… but since Phil is associated with Jim, who is, we'll give him the nod… and Andy… well, anybody who has had the strong association with hockey that Andy has had for many years can be considered an honorary Canadian.
