Two weeks into this blogging bit and the Instapundit graced me with that first bar of hits there in August. I don't know what his motive is for doing this to new bloggers, because he has been pretty good about giving a big, fat shove to many a newbie, but it motivated me to the point of distraction. Ack!
And so, we thank the BlogFather for all gifts bright and good. I guess I wanted him to not feel his gracious link was wasted. I know and respect the amount of work he puts into his website, so I really do appreciate all he's done for bloggers and blogging.
This month I have to thank the nice doggies over at the Emperor's place f or quite a few, as well as Denny, Rachel, GuyK, and Don Surber's blogs from whence I link-whored my way--either directly from them, or brazenly in the comments-- into new readers. And I guess my rants are popular. Who knew?
But the regulars know who they are, and deserve a special thanks for hanging out with me through these last 8 months with job changes, weird YouTubes, a blog meet, and politics. Elisson is my venerable GodFather, having provided me with my first linkage, and Erica is my GodMother providing me with funny links of encouragement and praise and my first blog award!
Now that I'm thoroughly addicted, I expect the Jolly Roger will have to attend more Blogaholics Anonymous meetings in order to understand the affliction, and to understand why I haven't folded the laundry in six months.
No, I have no idea what this blog is all about. Too much trouble to think about. Where is it headed? I'll let you know when I know, ye muckle-headed, mop-wielding, deck-swabbing bilge rats!
Now, where's my rum?
