Blogosphere is all about communities built by people just like you and me … and no, “splogs” are not part of it :). Web 2.0 simply implies more participation and better interaction but strong communities are still based on same basic principal of similar interests. And now we all can benefit from a new trend started by Gary Lee and called Technorati fave train.

I have run into this concept after visiting one of my favorite blogs “the thinking blog” and really liked the idea, which I invite you to participate in – Fave My Blog and I Will Fave Yours! And no – this is not unethical and not cheating but a simple way to build community and provide more exposure to the blogs with real content and not one of the adsense blogs that have been properly optimized for SE.

Participate and Benefit!

To make this worth a while I’m have installed a DoFollow plugin that disable the evil “nofollow” tag on your URL in comments. I believe that all good commentators deserve the benefit of backlink:

***Start Copying Here***

Here are the rules:

1. Write a short introduction paragraph about what how you found the list and include a link to the blog that referred you to the list.

2. COPY the Rules and ENTIRE List below and post it to your blog. To avoid duplicate content and increase the amount of keywords your site can accessible for, go ahead and change the titles of the blog. Just don’t change the links of the blog.

3. Take “My New Faves” and move them into the “The Original Faves” list.

4. Add at least 3 Blogs that you’ve just added to your Technorati Favorites to the “My New Faves” section. Remember to also add the “Fave Me” link next to your new blogs (i.e. http://technorati.com/faves?add=http://www.yourdomain.com)

5. Add Everyone on this list to your Technorati Favorites List by clicking on “Fave the Site.” (Please FAVE EVERYONE on the List prior to posting the list or a Kitten will Die Alone in a Dark Alley Tonight). Those who want good karma will fave you back. If not, you will for sure get the benefits of faves from the bloggers who continue this list after you.
