Yesterday I lamented about the old posts that get forgotten in the blogosphere. Today I have a solution.
We need to collectively stop and take a look back.
That’s why I am proposing a Blog Inaction Day.
That’s right. A day of inaction. A day where all bloggers don’t publish anything. A day where we bloggers honour the past by doing nothing except reading old entries. We can dip into the vaults of our favourite blogs or explore blogs we’ve never been to before.
We can keep a record of what jewels from the past we were able to find. We should all find at least five articles from the past that interested us in some way. We can then go and post the links up on our blog. No commentary is needed.
All we need to write is, “Look what I found in the sandbox!”
Then we will let the discussion begin. We will have created a dialogue with the past. We will honour our history and still move forward.
What’d ya say. Are you with me?
