Sort of a Pun « Puns »

Over at this Arguing With Signposts post about devolving in the NZBear Ecosystem, I left the following comment:

It's an ecosystem, man. Zero-sum game. Even if you get more links/hits, if someone else is accumulating them quicker, you move down. For someone to go up, someone else has gotta go down. It's sad, but it's the way this blog-eat-blog world works.

Yeah. And today I'm a large mammal again. :-)

I wouldn't even notice if I weren't on the edge. There's a whole swath of marsupials who stay where they are.

A good problem to have, I guess.

...and I've been moving up lately, myself. (Even negative press is good press, I guess)

Off-topic: I bought a new house! Update your blogroll:

Ha, just the other day I found my blog site ("BIRD") at "Large Mammal" measure and was feeling all cavalier and wrote about how I didn't write for popularity, notice, all that pretensive stuff and then the site plummeted to "Flappy Bird" lowland status and I was just wondering if anyone else ever had that experience. The rise, the fall, the fall...

Sure. I've been a Large Mammal before...before I stopped blogging for 4 months and then came back with a new host. Some of the people who used to link me never found me...

then the site plummeted to "Flappy Bird"

Well, since your blog is called "BIRD" isn't that kind of ... y'know ... right?

Maybe I should rename my blog "Higher Being."

Is it true that marsupials are from Mars?

Mmmm, not sure. But if so then polyps are probably from Uranus...
