The date of August 31 was chosen because 3108 (31st day of the 8th month) can be read as “blog”. The concept of the holiday is quite simple. On this day, bloggers are encouraged to recommend five blogs they consider interesting. A recommendation should contain a short description and a link to the recommended blog.
It is suggested that bloggers recommend blogs that are different from their own attitude, point of view and/or culture, because Blog Day is all about diversity! It is also important to notify the bloggers you've recommended and congratulate them on the holiday.
Sadly, Blog Day has not gained considerable popularity in the blogosphere. However, if you want to recommend a blog, you don't have to wait until August 31. For example, Twitter users can tweet the names of users they'd live others to follow on Friday, tagging their tweeds with #FF and #followfriday.Remind me with Google Calendar
