Blogroll Amnesty Day 2013

The first weekend in February marks the observance of Blogroll Amnesty Day, when we celebrate small blogs by linking some of 'em. This event was co-founded by the late Jon Swift (who explained its origins here), and by skippy. (My most extensive post on the tradition was this one, back in 2008.)

If you participate, make sure to e-mail skippy so he can include you in his B.A.D. roundup(s). Remember, don't get too caught up in the "smaller" blog thing and relative traffic or rankings – the spirit is to link small-ish blogs.

Here's my list for this year, with some familiar suspects:

Herlander-Walking: A feminist refuge in a dystopian landscape.

Rawrahs: Shouting into the abyss.

Mister Tristan: The softer side of ultrarunning, philosophy, politics and other stuff.

Ornery Bastard: Come for the profanity, stay for the political analysis. (Or was it the other way around?)

Mikeb302000: With a focus on gun control, Mike has had plenty of material in the past couple of years.

Poor Impulse Control: Hiro Protagonist endorses this blog.

The Non Sequitur: Your argument is invalid.

World O' Crap: A daily diatribe about current events, bad movies, wingnuts, pop culture, etcetera.

Just Another Blog (From L.A.): M. Bouffant finds some good stuff, as featured in "Two faces, one patriot."

Zen Comix: What is the sound of one cartoon clapping?

As always, it bears mentioning Mike's Blog Roundup at Crooks and Liars, where every day is Blogroll Amnesty Day. (I do several MBR stints a year, rotating with a good crew.)

Good karma and happy blogging!

Oops, can't spell "appreciate." Oh, well, I never claimed to be literate.
