She Works Hard for the Money

Filed Under: Tech/Videos/Video Games

I am not an economic genius; I am a writer.  [I also like to state the obvious and use brackets a lot.]

The obvious having been stated, I do know that the economy sucks ass right now.  Gas prices are at an all-time high, food prices are through the roof and the mei-tai that I want costs like $100.

So, in an effort to help people [specifically bloggers] out, Kristen has started the “Blog the Recession” dealio.

The gist of the idea is to get your freakin’ nose out of your feed readers and actually click over to the blogs that you so dutifully read.  Maybe even click on a couple of internal links and check out more than one page within the blog.  That way, the blogger who you know and love will get increased page views and thus increased ad revenue.

Don’t think of this as padding a blogger’s pocket.

Think of this as a bloggy stimulus package of sorts.


  1. Well you know it’s summer holidays around here, only a very few tiny nano seconds available.

  3. Check out http://www.magicsling.com. This is a friend of mine who makes all kinds of baby carriers and they are more reasonably priced than the one you were looking at.

  5. I’m leaving comments for everyone on Kristen’s list 🙂 It’s the least I can do!

  6. I just joined the Blog the Recession. Such a great idea and fun as well. Another fun perk is finding great new blogs to frequent 🙂

  8. I am on the bandwagon too! I do use a Reader, but use it for info purposes for headlines. I am proud to say I click through to the blogs, and read the entire articles, as well as search archives when available!

    Agree with the above – let’s read what’s being written!

  9. It takes a lot of clicks to pad a pocket. Think of it as dropping a penny in a piggy bank; if enough people drop pennies, the piggy will fill.
