Blog Whoring Finds
I get alot of people writing me and asking for a link to their site. Whats funny is how some of these people ask. "Couldn't help but notice the heavy traffic on your site. could you link to me?" End of email. No, 'hi, how are ya?' No conversation or niceties, just link me. My answer? Well, you won't find their links here, if thats what you mean. lol
Generally though, I don't like people asking me for a link. I think thats kind of tacky, with the exception of a few good blogger friends who I'll exempt from the rule. If I like you, if I read your site and enjoy myself, then you'll get a link without having to ask for one.
Now, don't get me wrong here. There are plenty of blogs that I read that are not in my sidebar. I'll blame laziness and memory loss for that. There are blogs that I've been meaning to link to for months that I've yet to add. I loathe opening up my blog template, having all that garbled html staring back at me. I can only take so much before my eyes begin to cross and I get sick of typing code. All in good time though, I promise.
Also, if you have a blog exclusively dedicated to extramarital affairs, cheating on your spouse, planning to cheat on your spouse, or cheating with somebody else's spouse, chances are that I won't link to you. I have, I believe, one exception to that in my links, and he has such a way with words that though I hate what he does and says, I can't be mad at him.
I'm a married woman who loves my husband dearly, and it would be the end of me if he ever had the cliche' 'cheating blog'. I choose not to further fuel those people's blogs. That said, one of my blog whoring finds has questionable content, but more on that in a bit.
New Blogs to read:
Straightfoward Thoughts : You all remember Greg from his smartass comments back and forth with Bob. lol Sweet guy with adorable kids and a great sense of humor. Hes a keeper.
Sweltering Celt : This girl and I have exchanged a few emails here lately, only to find that our similarities are downright spooky! lol You may also recognize her as a reviewer on Freddy & Eddy. Lots of good female point of view perspective, which always makes for a good read.
Eyerocker : Hilarious! This site is endlessly funny. You will not leave his site without a smile on your face. Hes also a very sweet guy, though its tough to tell through his blog. ;)
Wicked Passion : Another new blog, this one focusing around a twenty something girl "exploring life to the fullest". Her writing reminds me of one of my closest girlfriends, and therefore, makes me feel like I'm sitting down and catching up on all the gossip. Love it.
Used Car Sales : So not a new blog. lol I've been meaning to add this for ages. Robert has a no shit attitude and very frankly tells you how it is. I sense a bit of a softie deep beneath the crusty exterior though, whether he likes to admit it or not. lol He also seems to be the only one who followed my link over to the other Robert's knee slappin, kitty blog. Whats wrong with you people? lol
Classifed Blog : This is the blog I'm on the fence about linking to. Whats interesting, is that this guy has another blog, a live journal that appears to be the Dr Jekyl counterpart and 'Classifed Blog' appears to be his Mr Hyde. On his live journal, he is so happy and positive its nearly obnoxious-I mean that in the nicest way. On his blog, hes a bit dark, not to mention having an affair with his friend's wife. What?! Very odd, and completely unexpected if you read both journals, but unfortunatly, they are to be kept separate. Not sure you could appreciate the irony without the comparison....
I've had all the html I can take for the day. Enjoy.
