Club for LDS (non-Group) Blogs

Dave Underhill over at Mormon Inquiry has a fun idea: A Mormon Blog Club. He notes:

What are the benefits and duties of club membership? Simple. A club member must visit each of the other club sites once a day (weekends optional) and leave a comment (as simple as “Nice post. Love the lawyer joke.”). That’s it. Think about it: if there are 8 club members, that’s 35 comments per week on your solo blog. Oh, and members must post a blogroll of fellow club sites. Zero cost. Quit anytime.

Hmm, that sounds fun! (Note: If interested, sign up in his comments section, not here). (Too bad I’m ineligible; T & S won’t work, and my old solo blog has been shelved for a newer small group blog). Dave plans on future expansion as necessary, to potentially accomodate themes like “Mormon Law” or “Mormons and Science.” (Hey, as long as he’s not planning on starting a “Club for Baby Seal Blogs” . . .).

    I guess one of the lessons here is, don’t put strikeout font in your post title…

    Clark, actually the wording was a solo blog “preferably with comments.”

    What was that about clubbing baby seal blogs?

    I got a blog. I don’t talk church much, but I’ve already linked a couple of you guys, I think. Don’t know that I’ll be able to comment every day on every blog, though. Or that people would be able to do that for me. I don’t even always post every day.
