To my blogmies.

on January 5, 2008 in Ze Bloggy Goodness with 25 comments by

One of my favorite blogs to read [of people I don’t know] is The Secret Life of Kat. And she had a really smart and kind idea today. So, if it is okay with her, I will steal that smart and kind idea.

Now I know how you are, you don’t love required participation, so this isn’t that.

BUT, if you read my blog and have your own blog and I don’t have you linked in “My Blogmies”, please let me know so I can add your link to our list. Now, many of you are either a) already linked or b) blog stalkers like Molly, so no worries.

You may be saying to yourself, “Hey, I don’t even know if I WANT to be one of Annie’s blogmies.”

If that is a worry, let me clear it up for you. A blogmie is nothing more than a blog homie. And who doesn’t need more homies? Am I right or am I right?

And, as my blogmie:
1) I will not ask you for money.
2) I will not ask you to defend me against anyone else’s homies.
3) I will read your blog.
4) I will possibly discuss your blog using statements like, “Yeah, the other day my friend said…” instead of confessing that I read it on your blog.

So if you’d like to be linked over here on the right, just let me know. Join in the fun! The more the merrier!

    My deepest apologies, Sean. I don’t know how something so obvious slipped my mind. Get Zoe to show me her ring, I deserve it.

    B, you quit blogging. It was hard on me as well, but I have to be true to my peeps and only lead them to safe pasture.

    she axed me too, B. her own flesh and blood. and my verification was a string of consonants. no logical explanation here.

    except maybe that i never blog anymore.

    I’m honored to be one of your “blogmies.” Glad you thought the idea was worth stealing.

    Yeah – I’m pretty much not on the list either. It’s becoming painfully clear who your favorites are…

    The rest of us are anti-blogmies. We’re going to rise up against the blogmies.

    Sleep with your lights on.

    Wow, I’m quite surprised at how much quick influence my emotional blackmail post had.

    It must’ve been my street-tough lingo.

    Thanks for adding me, Jive Crackah.

We can discuss this later. this has nothing to do with your blog question…….im kinda a private blogger…which is opposite of blogging i guess…but i really just created it to allow my family to see pics of bennett….BUT im not trying to be anti-social..its just that……oh i digress

    I want to be a part of your ‘list’ even though I barely ever get to even talk to you!!! (I still love your blog), but maybe most importantly I want to know HOW you make that list on the side?!?!?

    nice strategy to get your mystery readers to reveal themselves. I wish I’d thought of it earlier…

    So, hook a sister up!
    The nail salon is so needed right now, but I’m saving for a gym membership. I think we had that conversation in the salon last time. Ha! Peace out…

    pgodkj ..whatcha make of that?

    Whew… I think we got everybody.

    And if anyone wants off the list, that’s fair too. I won’t be mad.

    This is totally optional, if you WANT to. No pressure. I just didn’t want anyone feeling left out.

    Thanks to all the folks who I hadn’t added yet that let me know.

    Confession, Annie, I read your blog pretty much every week day. I check my email, read the news, then read your blog. Yep, I was a bit of a stalker. Not anymore…

    I read it a lot. You are in my bloglines … I just don’t comment that much. With two kids and one on the way … I don’t have much time to comment anymore.

    Would be honored to be included in your “blogmies”. You’re a great writer and I enjoy your blog and articles. Almost introduced myself to you last night at Face Down, but couldn’t get away. It feels wrong somehow to know so much about people you haven’t even met yet!

    Shwit, terribly sorry. Just added you and Kelly. More of the internet world deserves to see those cute baby girls!!

    Kelli! I’m so glad to read your blog! You’ve stayed in the shadows too long. Please tell Brian hi and send my love to your family. I miss y’all.

    Heather, thank you! No worries- I’ll keep writing and you keep raising those cute little sprouts.

    Mari, please do introduce yourself sometime- that would be great. Thank you for your kind words. FaceDown was great last night, wasn’t it?

    Not gonna lie…blog stalker confession. You’re one of 9. I’m only fessin’ up to this one because you put the pressure on. You’re the 1 of 9 that usually makes me laugh out loud at least once a day! And I feel the May-retta connection (my Motherland) a mere 6 hours away. Keep writing…you have an audience!

    Thanks girls! Adding you both now. But seriously- I wasn’t trying to put pressure on! You’re making me sweat just thinking about it!! I only wanted to add people who WANTED to be added- it was supposed to be nice, not threatening. AUGH! 🙂

    2 of my favorite Athens people also bloggers. Well done. Send hugs to your husbands for me.
