Claire is involved with BlogDay which is on August 31st. Claire suggests:
On the 31st do a post linking to 5 new blogs with a little introduction to each one. Then leave a comment on those 5 blogs letting the authors know that you have recommended them.
I was thinking though that the Linux Geeks have their Linux install fests, I wonder could there be a Blog Migration Day? I’ve encouraged a few bloggers to get blog hosting packages with hosting companies before but I was wondering would people be interested in a day devoted to moving blogs over from blogger or blogspot to their own domain names and maybe using wordpress to blog? Buy the packages and then get training on one day. Maybe Tom could provide the training?
Now if there was only some hosting company that had some special offer of giving free training as well a doing the actual move over to the new platform as part of a blog hosting package. Naturally to make it worthwhile there’d have to be a min of 20 people signing up for an offer like that so it’d be up to the bloggers themselves to drum up business.
