As a blogger, people may know you, but how good does anyone ever really know anyone? One way to get to know someone better is for them to talk about charities they support. What if bloggers were to go down a path of thinking about some of the people they only know of in the blogosphere and for a moment considered the human aspects of blogging and for a moment forgot about talking about business, technology or whatever their blog theme is. What if the game of Blog-Tag going around the blogosphere in which bloggers are sharing five things about themselves that relatively few people know, and then tagging five other bloggers to be "it" morphed into bloggers sharing the five charities they believe are most worthy of contribution?
Let's see if this idea will work. I will start by tagging Stefan Tilkov
, Scott Mark
, David Heinemeier Hansson
and one blogger whom I don't know (even virtually) but will tag via trackback in hopes that they will consider charity a higher priority over etiquette or other secondary concerns. Either way, this is a great way to learn not only what folks feel is important but what they feel is more
