Dear Bloggy People,


Hello and welcome. The Big Blog Collection is a bit like a big blog library. Or a big blog index. Or a big blog roll. At least it will be if you add your blog links to it and tell all your followers / bloggy friends about it to help it grow.

You can add your blog to two of the blog categories, e.g. if you’re a photographer (not me) and an artist (not me) and you write a fake non-fictional, funny (?) blog about being mental (me! me!) and you include poetry, recipes, a bit of religion and a bit about your family or whatever else you do in your blog, you have to decide which two categories take precedence over the others (I had a long debate with myself over where to add mine). So –  


1  pick two categories (if you’re British you can add your link to the British page AND two others)

2  think about what you want to say about your blog

3  add your link in a comment in the categories you’ve chosen

don’t forget to FOLLOW THIS BLOG before you leave. I’m nice but I’m not THAT nice.

5  if you want to, take a button from the bottom of the page and put it on your blog with a link back here


I hope The Big Blog Collection becomes big enough to fit the title I’ve given it – I want it to become an easy way for everyone to find new blogs to read and follow – just click on the categories and hey presto, there’s a list of relevant blogs in the topics that interest you, blogs you might not come across otherwise.

If you have a suggestion for a blog category I haven’t covered, feel free to put it in a comment on the Suggestions page and I’ll have a little think about it.

Thank you. 🙂

  1. Going to add this to my sidebar.. So I’m stealing, I mean borrowing a button.

  2. Dotty, I messed up. 😦 For my blog’s second category, I would like to choose Thoughts/Reflections. I didn’t see that as a choice earlier, so I put it in Journal/Diary. Could you delete the listing on Journal/Diary? Then I’ll put the link in Thoughts/Reflections. Thanks.

  3. Dear Dotty,

    A Brilliant idea!



  4. Great idea Dotty. I was a bit shy at first but saw a few of my WP buddies listed so added mine :), and found a few new blogs to follow also 🙂

  5. Dear Dotty,
    I think I should get a gold star.
    Or at least a Cumberland.
    And Diet Coke.
    I’m a miserable suck up, I know.
    I can’t help it.
    Love, Lis

  6. Well, SHITE.
    I copied the WRONG linky thing.
    here it is.
    I’m not only a suck-up. I’m a stupid one at that.

    • Dear Lisa,

      I clicked the first link and it says ‘You are not allowed to edit this item.’ 🙂

      Thank you for doing the post. You can have SIXTEEN Cumberland sausage sandwiches. And a bottle of Diet Coke. 🙂

      Love Dotty xxx

  7. Hi … For some reason my comments are not being seen when I tried to comment in the categories to link my blog. Am I doing something wrong? Help. 😀

  8. Yay, thanks for the opportunity to link 🙂 I think this is a brilliant idea, I may steal it if that’s okay?

  9. Hey, not heard from you for a while, Dotty. Everything OK?

  10. Very, very innovative Dotty! 🙂

  11. Nice reading about you.

    Thanks. I invite you to visit my blog Ajaytao2010@wordpress.com. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may definitely find something of your interest.

  12. Hi Dotty! Thank you for setting this up! It is helpful to everyone, but especially those of us who are new to blogging and how it all works. I’m looking forward to adding my blog http://inspireon2013.wordpress.com to your lists and taking a look at who else is here. Wonderful, thank you!

  13. Great idea, looking forward to read new interesting blogs! I managed to add the button to mine, following the “How to” instructions. Thank you!

  14. Looks good! I’ve been posting on my blog for a while, but need to learn how to get all the goodies up and running. I’m on Twitter & my blog and FB page are in need of some readers and their comments. Peace of Mind & Love, Nana

  15. artbetweentheworlds.com
    My blog about art, the creative process and collaborative work. Plus musings on things related to art or who knows what else at some point.

    See you there,

  16. Hi Dotty,

    My blog is called the Half-Eaten Mind. It is primarily a news and features blog, with the slogan “News and views of a partially digested brain”.
    I’m British, so can fit in that blog category. I also would like to be included in the “General” and “Topical/Political” categories too.

    Here is my blog’s URL: http://halfeatenmind.wordpress.com/

    Thanks so much for reading, and I’ll be sure to help myself to a free badge



  17. Hi Dotty,
    I came across your Big Blog button on a blog I visited.
    Thanks for the effective way to bring bloggers together from various interests. I look forward to reading other blogs here!

    I just noticed my blog URL does not appear linked in your blog followers.
    I did not notice a place to edit; would you be able to update my blog URL link to this?

    http://styleintegrity.com/ .

    Thanks for the ongoing efforts.



  18. Fabulous idea to unite bloggers across the blogosphere. I’m in!

  19. How do you add a button?

  20. You’ve got an interesting idea with this blog.. another category could cover: design/craft or designs/crafts/handmade.. etc.. The choice is yours:) Cheers from Ireland, Swav @PaintingsbySwav
