Just So You Know « Blogging »

Today is the 10th of July. If you look over at the little Sitemeter thingy, you'll realize that I've been blogging for 21 months know without a single link from Mr. Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit. I predate Baldilocks, LaShawn Barber, Wonkette, Bill in INDC, Blackfive (I think), and many others who also easily eclipse in me in hittage and Ecosystem standing in far less time blogging...but I'm not bitter. Not even a little bit. At all. And don't let anyone tell you differently. [grin]

I have been linked mulitple times by Dean Esmay, however. And I'm devastatingly handsome. sorta average-looking...on a good day.

And my dental hygiene practices are exemplary. Did I mention that?

Oral hygiene? That's great, but...sugarpie, what exactly is it you're asking us to do to you, again?

Heck ... I refuse to even GO to Instapundit ... heh... I've resisted the assimilation ...

I only want Glenn for his hits.

Oral hygiene, huh?

Good grief! Please insert an "i" in there....

[Fixed! --ed.]

Okay, Nathan, I know it's not nice to correct people's spelling, but you really need to fix the second-last word in your post here. As is, it makes it look as if you're so hot people spontaneously take their clothes off around you, which I doubt is what you were saying.

On the other hand, if it is what you were saying, please let me know the next time you're planning to walk past a firehouse or construction site....

Proofreading? We don't need no stinkin' proofreading!

Speaking of links from the heavy hitters, I notice today that I owe you some thanks for pointing one my way.

And one of my favorites, too!

I doubt if I'll get any stickiness from it, but I'm still darned happy to get the link!

Craig, you deserved that link simply because you scooped everyone with that interview and brought some pride to Montana. But I also thought it was relevant to her discussion that Ms. Rossmiller herself seemed unconcerned about her name being public.

Some self-absorbed musing on blog linkage

In my pre-blogging days (oh, a couple of months ago), I was riding high in the blog-reader world. I was quoted by name by Reynolds and now and then listed as a contributor to Taranto; Taranto even mentioned my name in the body of a post. I carried on brief two-way e-mail conversations with Sullivan and Taranto. Life was good.

And then I started my own blog. And then there was nothing. A deafening silence. (OK, one insta-link, but it was in an update to a previous post so nobody saw it. And I only got that by prostrating myself before Mr Reynolds.) Not a single other link that I know of.

And so the vicious cycle sets in. Nobody knows about the blog, so nobody links to it. Since nobody links to it, nobody knows about it.

And since I've added essentially nothing to this conversation, I won't even shamelessly link to my blog in the body of this comment (he says patting himself on the back for the uncharacteristic show of restraint).

Well, no would probably read this post, anyway, since it's way down the page. But I'll still link you, anyway.
