For You To DO: The Kilroy Initiative

November 16, 2005 at 8:00 am (Daily Dookie, Other Bloggers)

Since we all know we're nearing the Silly Season, the one where dipshits abound, asshats go out of their way to make their presence known, and some fat dude in a red hat asks "What do you want me to do to you for Xmas, little girl?" I've noticed something amiss here in Bloggyland.

I've found that while my Site Meter is logging the same number or more in daily hits, my comments have slowed to a trickle. Granted that my blogging slowed to a trickle too, but this is a lot easier to stay involved with if there's feedback. Other bloggers are seeing it too–seeing fewer comments, more lurking, and less appreciation for the sharing and caring and bitching and whining.

I have found the solution, but it takes a blog-munity to make it work:

Here's the deal:

As you wander from blog to blog, make an effort to let the person who wrote what you're reading know their thoughts have been read. Maybe you just can't think of anything witty, prosaic, smartassed or otherwise noteworthy to say. Before you leave the blog, whether you leave a comment or not, add/write the words "Kilroy Was Here." If you don't want Aunt Emma to know you read that post about how you picked your ass, then your nose, as a child, then leave it anonymously, but do leave it.

I don't want your money. I don't want your link (although if you're inspired, take the graphic above and link it to the trackback on this post). I don't want your undying, everlasting lust (unless you're Honey, Kevin Smith, Steve Bacic, or some select male cast members of "Firefly") much. All I want you to do is type three words before you move on from each blog you visit.

Kilroy Was Here.

Give it a shot–it's free, easy, and it'll be funny as hell seeing where it turns up.
Addendum: I stuck this post to the top for a day. Look under it to check out the next post.
