People are just so clever. When a great idea comes to the surface and implemented it is just bound to grow. When the growth affects and benefits everyone involved its just frosting on the cake. I feel very fortunate to be part of something that is of great value. The value that I find in this is not just the links and SEO that will be gained by this swap, but also the notoriety that I participated in something that will become a yearly thing. The value of the WEB 2.0 is just that, sharing and adding. Nothing that I put on my blog is "mine" once I hit the submit button - it is out there for anyone to use - not to plagiarize but to work off of. Maybe there is something that someone said that I agree with or better - disagree with. Blogging is not about who does it best, there are many blogs that are out there that have some great articles. There are professional writers that just blow me away with their use of words and thoughts. But when you enter into the world of blogging and the world of WEB 2.0 its not about ME, its not about YOU - its about what we say. We may not all agree on certain subjects, and that is cool. But, when we can share the ideas and grow with them - we get GREAT bloggers as well as the "three sides to every story".
So, speaking for all of us involved - we invite you to share in this awesome event that will be taking place this Tuesday, December 19, 2006 - is the Yankee Blog Swap. We also extend our invites to comment on everyones blog and take part in this event
The following are the list of the players who will be switching blogs for the day -
