Hands Across the Blogiverse

One of the neatest things about the internet is the way you can find people all over the world who share your interests, your concerns and even your sense of humor.

For those of us in Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood (MI-08), it was cool to find that there is Another Mike Rogers (AL-03)... and in return, Mooncat over at Left In Alabama gave us a shout out:
There's a Mike Rogers underrepresenting folks in Michigan, too. Keep tabs on him at Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.
This was part of a post on Blogroll Amnesty Day ("Look Up! Link Down!"). Jon Swift has this take on the power of today:
Ironically, Blogroll Amnesty Day had a net positive effect for the blogosphere as a whole. I discovered a number of great blogs and made new friends and I am sure that is true for others as well. And so instead of remembering February 3 as a day that will live in infamy, let's turn this day into a celebration of the power of smaller blogs. Let's recognize that building an inclusive community of diverse voices is what the blogosphere should be about, not creating a new elite to replace the old mainstream media elite.
Do your part -- visit a new blog, share the links, share the love.
