So I joined another social networking group. Actually I joined maybe a week ago, and just now got around to blogging about it. Here I was, trying to work up the energy to drop the networks I have joined, perfectly good networks, all of them, I just don't have the time.
But this one is going to be different, or so they tell me. This network will make me famous and well loved, and I think they mentioned cute and skinny too.
No not really.
What group organizer Laurie did promise was that I would have to do nothing at all, and I was all over it like white on rice.
So today, I removed all my poor neglected blog networks and replaced them with the new button. Here it is right here:
There is any number of things the group has planned to do, for instance we are not going to hop on a plane and fly somewhere expensive and get drunk. We have, however, chosen which shoes we will wear when we don't do any of this. Is this a great group or what?
I am looking forward to visiting all the individual blogs of the people who make up the group and leaving lots of witty comments and maybe enticing them to come back here and comment and then maybe we can all be BFF and swap shoe care tips. In the meantime, I will link to the blogroll that Laurie has painstakingly assembled. I loves me an alphabetical list.
Until we replace all this with an email list,
Well, folks, I don't know if I intended to turn this into a series or not, but last Sunday's post was such an overwhelming success I just have to try it again. I also have a few less pain pills in me this week (no I don't want to talk about it) so maybe I will be alert enough to do a better job this week. I also plan to stay awake long enough to do the obvious thing one should do when writing a post such as this one: Click Through The Links Myself so that maybe people will actually know I am linking to them. Those little details matter.
And so, without any further hype, I bring you the top websites who sent me traffic in the past seven days, as listed in my referrer logs.
Bryan's CMS Report was by far my top referrer this week, and with due cause. Bryan took no chances and plastered my name all over his site. If you hurry you can still see me right there at the top of the featured stories with a link leading to Karen Bauman: All you need is love. I have never felt so famous in my entire life. Just Wow.
ROTUS - ROOTUS?
ROTUS sent me visitors this week in addition to checking me out from his own referral logs. Yeah, I can tell the difference. Thanks for reading my other post, too. ROTUS also has a couple of other blogs, including Clark's Picks. This blog features excellent and rare music video found on the web. Good stuff.
This week's third entry comes to us in sort of a roundabout way. It would appear that I wound up in the referral logs over there, my blog was added to the sites that link here blogroll, people were enticed to click over here putting that blog in my referral logs, and so on and so on. I don't mean to lure folks here under false pretenses, and I don't have a clue about politics, so if you came here seeking my views you best just click the link right above this paragraph and try again somewhere else.
I hear Hillary uses Windows Server. Ewwww.
Tony's Open Diary gets listed here as a result of a rather interesting story. Turns out he set a goal to visit at least 1,000 Entrecard Member sites before the end of February. My blog was #964. Thanks for not giving up, Tony, and thanks to anyone who found my blog name interesting enough to pick out of a very long list!
Tam writes in a very entertaining manner about things that should interest everyone. Things like laundry. I love it when a guy talks laundry. Turns out, Tam has this blog listed right in his sidebar as one of the Blogs of the Month. Such an awesome responsibility, and with the month almost over I feel that I have dropped the ball somehow. Well, life gets in the way sometimes. I hope you come back anyway. I am sure you will win your fight.
A virtual Russian Roulette of topics ranging from helpful blog reviews to cow teats. Really. Check it out.
I read the code examples, it all makes sense, then when I go and look at code it makes sense in a way, too. But will I ever actually write code? Dunno, but this website has helped me understand more of the theory.
In addition to having a link in the sidebar, Tieson has me listed on the credits page under "Web site testing and layout consulting". How cool is that?
