holy shit—looks like I'm semi-web-famous

I was looking at my blog stats today and came across a viewer who found me via a link from the Toledo Free Press (a local paper). I clicked the link to get more info and sodding hell—this is what I found.


Look, look...right there second effing paragraph, they menition ME and the call my blog "a fun place to visit." AHHHHHH!!!!! I'm like a little kid on Christmas I'm so damn excited! I don't know why, but this really thrills me. I've been in little local papers before and was even quoted in The Blade, Toledo's main paper, once many years ago for standing outside like a nutjob at 5 a.m. the morning after Thanksgiving to shop. But this was totally unexpected. I just sort of fell onto it—I wasn't contacted about it at all, which is fine. I'm just glad I saw it. This may be the one time technorati actually was my friend (as opposed to how lame I am because I rank way, way down there).

However you found me Lisa Renee Ward—Thanks, you've made my day.

pretty cool!

If anyone ever wrote about my blog it would be "It's a nice place to visit if you are looking to catch some sort of undiscovered STD."

I'd never get published in something that wasn't NC-17 rated. Apparently I curse too much. Who knew?

Very very cool that you were written about! That would make me smile for days!

Wow. You're certainly on your way now, missy. Get yourself red carpet ready.

That's cool! My blog will never be featured in anything like that, unless the writer is stoned or something.

Holly, I probably should let bloggers know that I've written about them but so far most of them have found it. I spend time searching technorati and other search engines to find blogs from this area. Sometimes people email me too, but I found yours searching and I liked what I saw so it was an easy decision to include you and rr both.

I try to keep visiting and you will be listed on the blogroll of special blogs that have become Blog it Toledo blogs.

For me it's been alot of fun so I'm glad you liked being a part of it.

:-)
