Lest My Head Get Too Big

I know it's in poor taste to talk about traffic because people get sad or jealous or, if you're like me, confused: what the hell does traffic have to do with a blog anyway, you DINGDONG?  But you'll never have to worry about me being classy, so here we go.

Here's what getting Blog of Note will do to your traffic:



Though, I don't expect it to linger very long. This email came later that day:



Just one last "thanks" to all the newbies. Hope you stick around.  

If not, that's cool, too, I guess. If you're okay with my impending self-doubt, feelings of rejection, and ultimate spiral into depression resting on your shoulders, that is.

Ahem.

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter! *cheecky, dimply smile*

Ok, now I'll shut up about Blog of Note. I'm not classy, but I TRY not to be annoying.  Stay tuned for a post about my huffing, car-crashing neighbors!  Wheeeee!

  1. Holy crapola! Well, I'm staying. So even if that's annoying and it seems like I'm just here because you're cool....well, that IS part of the reason. But it's also pretty hard finding fun, interesting blogs to follow without a little help, so Blogs of Note is good for that.

    AT LEAST you didn't go add stupid Google Ad Words to your site just because you have an increase in traffic (like SOME Blogs of Note do). I'm sure it's a temptation, and if you do, I'll still read your blog, because, hey, I get it. You have to make money and all that. Just continue writing funny, insightful, and witty posts. That's all I ask. :)

  2. That's actually how I found your blog...hitting "next blog" on the top of the screen just wasn't doing it for me. It kept taking me to blogs that were about families with kids and dogs, or to blogs not written in any discernible language. So I'm glad I tried blogs of note. Oh, and congrats to your friends on their win. Can't wait to see the vlog! (You're right, that does sound dirty...also, sorry I rambled on so much. I tend to do that. Haha.)

  3. omg that next blog tab sucks big floppy donkey dick. it kept bringing me to the SAME NINE BLOGS for an entire day. three of which were in other languages. to which i say, what the fuck blogger?

    anyhoo, i think this blog rocks. i found it when you were BONed (blog of note, mais ouis). i was reading older posts, and they're all pretty rad.

    and happy 90210 day. how fucking wrong is it that NO ONE is doing a 90210 marathon?!???????????? VERY WRONG.

  9. Nicole: I actually have a long-standing grudge with Google Ads. I HAD them up for a year, earning a whopping $67, then they told me I was in violation and yanked it. Fascists.

    CoDependent: No need to worry about rambling here. It's my only talent, really.

    steph: Yes, I found an odd blog devoted to a stopwatch once. Which...was...fun...ish.

    carrie: THANK you. I like being called a star. Wanna be besties?

    becca: Listen, I've got to practically pay people to keep 'em around, so "annoying" is pretty much impossible. Welcome!

    DP: Aww, shucks, pirate. You really know how to make a girl blush. *kicks dirt*

    alicia: I will SO write a book. If someone gives me money. I'm into commercialism.

    Josh: Well, thanks for admitting as much. It's the first step, I hear.

  10. I love your blog, and must say when it all boils down the way we arrived here is not as important as much as us being here. I love blogs that make me happy and make my day, actually its a great way to start your day!

  12. so, here's the thing. you're awesome. i'm a little biased though as i am also not classy. that fact that i'm eating Wendy's out of the bag at 10pm while watching Jersey Shore may have something to do with it.

    i'm a newbie and i'll be stickin 'round.

  13. Mickymar: I think you're clearly a spammer, but I cannot bring myself to delete that mini-bear. Well played, sir.

    Agapelife: Thank ye, thank ye!

  19. I laughed so hard when I saw the cats that I think I woke up my hubby. It was 4 a.m. Seem like my kind of lady. No Class. Who says? Have a fun 15 mins. Maybe it'll turn into 60.

  20. well i think that's AWESOME woman. i don't think i've had a total of 7,000 blogs hits for the entire time i've been blogging and it's now just over a year.

  21. Gabriele: I am enjoying it immensely! Tastes like chocolate!

    Ed: Both are true, really. You bastard.

    Nichole: And you are an amazingly awesome commenter.

    Rex: Because maybe I am. Please leave your shades open at night. It's hard to stalk when they're closed.

    Misha: Thanks! Glad you're here.

    sassylassy: Oh, those cats are often the bane of my existence. Whatever that means, really.

    steff: Dude, me either. This is surreal. I suppose once it subsides I'll have to resort to nudity.

  23. ***Cheeky dimple smile*** (love that!)... I have never seen someone so comfortable with themselves and still have a kick-ass personality like yours in writing. Lots of people lose tons of their personality traits when they write because they are much less expressive...well your not one of them.

  28. How did I find your blog...how did I find your blog. I can't remember, I do remember wishing I was your friend and figured the closest thing I could do to that would be to subscribe and follow.

    But, look, you are so famous and wonderful and charismatic and charming that I found you, in a little town of under 10,000 in Wisconsin, I found you.

    That's pretty big, right? I mean, right?
