Ya know how some physical products brag about the product’s origin (usually in the form of a sticker on the box) with a picture of an American flag and words something like – Proudly Made in the USA.
What if USA bloggers did something similar by displaying a badge on their site, maybe in the sidebar or footer, exclaiming with pride that they dwell and blog from within the United States of America?
As a red-blooded American, through and through, I’m very proud of my status as a citizen of the United States of America. I’ll be the first to display my ‘Blogging in the USA’ banner in the footer of my blog to exhibit my pride.
Want to join the movement and unite with other USA bloggers? Simply display your own ‘Blogging in the USA’ banner somewhere on your site. You can make your own banner or grab one of the ready-made banners that I’ve prepared in various sizes and with various text colors.

The only thing that I ask in return is that you link any of these images that you use to bloggingintheusa.com – which currently just redirects to this page. If this thing takes off and becomes really popular, I might build a standalone site just for the movement.
Let me know about it!
I would love to see how you’ve added the ‘Blogging in the USA’ badge to your blog! Feel free to fill out the form below to let me know. Who knows… if I like your blog I just might feature it in an upcoming post on the Dumb Passive Income blog!
Blogging in the USA
What About Non-USA Bloggers?
Sorry – this is not a worldwide mission of blogging pride. We who have been in America for a number of decades (like myself) have come to understand that the ‘Made in America’ sentiment means something. When displayed with physical products, it stands for quality workmanship and superior materials.
For some of us Americans, we’ll gladly pay a higher price to purchase something that is ‘Made in America’ – partly with the expectation that the product will be better and will last longer. But also with pride, knowing that we are supporting our fellow Americans.
I’m not even sure how this will translate into the world of blogging. I just know that I wanted to display my sense of pride as an American. If you are a blogger in the USA, perhaps you would like to do the same.
If you are a blogger from another country – perhaps you could start your own pride movement. In fact, I encourage it! This isn’t about bringing others down – it’s just about displaying pride for our own home country. I think it would be really cool to see flags displayed on blogs from the respective country of each individual blogger!
