No, seriously, I think it's time for a thorough restructuring of the blogroll here at CC HQ and, along those lines, I offer up the following CC reader challenge: To recommend those Canadian bloggers who are currently flying under the radar but who, in your remarkably inappropriate and unhumble opinions, deserve a wider readership.
The rules for this are simple and will be, I'm fairly confident, misinterpreted in every conceivable way:
- Recommendations cannot be made for blogs that are well-established and have a decent readership already. Those leeches can go find their own audience.
- Recommended blogs must produce on a regular basis -- someone who posts only occasionally is not eligible.
- You cannot vote for yourself.
- Just in case you missed that the first time, you cannot vote for yourself. What part of "cannot" is causing you such grief?
- Judicious use of profanity should be considered a good thing, but only if tastefully done.
- Recommendations for new blogs are particularly encouraged. However, let it be made abundantly clear that the 649th re-incarnation of the blog of Weiner Prattles shall not be considered "new." In fact, it shall not even be considered a "blog."
- Recommendations should be made by leaving as a comment the name of the blog, wrapped inside a hyperlink to that blog. If you don't know how to do that, figure it out.
If you violate this rule, forcing people to cut and paste, I will have "Nexus of Douchebaggery" blogger Patrick Ross trace your IP address, learn where you live and publish a Google Earth photo of the roof of your house. And you do not want it to come to that.
Take it away. The lines are now open, and operators are standing by to abuse you.
