April Promote Three

Each month I post links to three blogs that I think are excellent in some way. Some of them are especially interesting - others are especially educational. This month I am going with a theme of reciprocity. The old you-scratch-my-back-I-scratch-yours routine. According to Google Analytics, the following blogs have sent me a TON of traffic, much of which has been comprised very low-bounce visitors who hang out for longer-than-average times and view multiple pages on my blog. These folks are sending folks my way who apparently really like my blog and are sticking around. Because of the excellent back-scratching these guys have given me, I'd like to spread the link love around.
And what's more, these guys all three have excellent, interesting, educational blog material. So, by all means, go check these guys out!
to Dojo Rat, the best word I can think of to describe this blog is eclectic. From martial arts to politics, nothing is too sacred to discuss and challenge on this blog. Dojo Rat sends me a lot of new visitors (about 1/3 of links from DR are new visitors to Mokuren Dojo) who might otherwise never learn about the Mecca of aikido and judo that is Southwest Mississippi. Thank you for the plugs and for the traffic.
to Bob at Striking Thoughts, a practitioner of TKD, PPCT, and a handful of other exotic-sounding acronyms. Bob doesn't send me very many new visitors, but he does send me a host of return traffic, including folks that spend a good amount of time reading multiple pages at Mokuren Dojo. I'm always flattered to see folks hanging around the dojo for longer-and-longer periods of time studying up. Thanks, Bob. Keep em' coming.
And to my good buddy, Andy at Epic Ramble. I've missed being able to work out with Andy while he's been off on an adventure in Central Florida, but I'm looking forward to having him back at Mokuren Dojo soon on a regular basis. Andy has great, personalized, engaging training logs and notes regarding his aikido and judo studies. EpicRamble sends me a load of traffic too.
So, for those of you out there who are interested in great blogging role models as well as great martial arts info, check out these wonderful participants in the martial arts blogosphere.

  1. You are too kind...
    You also have way better computer skills than I do!

    Thanks, John at Dojo Rat
