The #odbloglove Proposition
No, I'm not talking about the new Odblo Gloves from Glacier Glove...
I received blog love back in the day from a fellow blogger, so I only feel it's right to return the favor now, especially since Troutrageous! has gained a somewhat
delusional dedicated following.
While blog-on-blog promotion is great, I noticed on Twitter yesterday that the blog love hashtag (or #bloglove) is a very underutilized term within tweets. Do a search, I dare ya - you'll get a few results, but nothing along the lines of #FF, #RT, or even #fishchat. I started using it for a few posts yesterday and the response from the bloggers that originally wrote those posts was great. Yeah, they were overwhelmed by the power of the blog love.
So what I'd like to propose...the next time you're on Twitter and want to re-tweet a blog post from someone...go ahead and add the "outdoor blog love" hashtag (#odbloglove) to the end of the tweet. Unfortunately, the much shorter #ODBL is already taken by foreigners.
For those of you slow on the uptake I'm tossing an od to the front of bloglove to make this unique to our outdoor demographic. Hunting, fishing, camping, it's all good...
See, any lazy bobo can just hit the RT button and send a tweet along; this actually takes a little initiative, and will make finding good blogger-recommended outdoor content even easier.
Or don't...and suck worse than you do already.
