3108 - 3lOg - 31 Aug: Happy Bloggers' Day

A blog is a combination of two words: web and log and is a type or part of a website. Separate them thus and: web-log = we - b - log = we - blog (Wikipedia).
Today, 31st August, is Blog Day. It was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest.
The designated date is August 31, because when written, the numbers 3108 resemble the word, 'Bl0g'. I thought the numbers 3l06 are more appropriate, so shouldn't it be 3l0G, or 31 June every year? Anyway...
Today, bloggers recommend five new ones to their visitors, so that readers discover new, previously unknown blogs. They are listed on the right bar below so if you have blogs to recommend please do so on the Comment page.
I have highlighted four of them but they are very popular ones. "On a day like today, we pass the time away, writing..."

Thanks YG.

Dear Andy,

Thank you for the honour of a mention in your LOVELY blog!
For a better understanding and knowledge of the local music scene of the late 50's and then the 60's,there isn't any better Blog than your blog.
I hope we can have time for a kopi chat about old times, Geylang and oldie music...not necessarily in that order, one day soon.

Again thanks unk Dicko. Your blog excites the mind and stimulates it to seek and probe.

At our age, we gotta keep everything sharp and ready for use. A healthy positive mind keeps a healthy body.

Happy blogging.

Oops. I didn't even know there is such a day called Bloggers Day. No wonder YG was introducing bloggers in his blog.

Just learnt about it too this year. Never too late. You don't need Blog Day Choon See. You are already established. You can run a bloggers' school.
Thanks for visiting.
