Shameless self-promotion

Sometimes, what you do with a blog is all about trying to get other people to read your blog, because when the visitor stats drop, you start to feel alone. And, knowing that you are being read is a good reminder to write. Add to that the hope that you will be read, and possibly get interacted with, for good or for ill, and so you write better.

So, today I'm writing a post to help me get listed on a bloglisting site so that more people will read my blog, because more people will go to the site, then link on through to my blog. This will generate revenue for the weblisting, and readers for me! I like readers...

The person running the website is Tony Kummer. He's also the brains behind some other blog sites, all of which are linked at his new website, www.mychristianblogs.com. So, naturally, I want to be listed on his site. To get there, I have to write a post about that site.

Now, keep in mind, not everything you'll find at www.mychristianblogs.com is going to be deep South Conservative Southern Baptist in its nature. That's part of the reason to be involved in this case. If you'll read through the veritable cornucopeia of blogs listed, you'll see sides of issues that you never knew existed, and fascinating rebukes and retorts will abound.

So, as a blog aggregator, this looks like a great place to find some very good Christian blogs out there. Once you find some you like, you can also check their blogrolls, but keep in mind, many of us are very hesitant to add someone to our blogroll. First we've got to know you want to be linked, then we want to make sure we're not linking to somebody who wrote 2 good posts and then went wack-o! So, a blog aggregator is a good bookmark site, to see what new things are out there.
