The traditional media has a thing about blogs. They seem to pick a couple and stick to them religiously. In the US, they would be constantly referring to InstaPundit. Over here, they are hung up on Slugger O’Toole.
Obviously, this is a good thing, for Slugger is an excellent choice. Hence it being on the blogroll for ages.
But I digress.
The reason for this post is a strange pattern of visitors. To be more blunt, a significant number of visitors comming via this.
See, I hadn’t opened the rest of that article, because at the end of the day, I don’t much care for Anita Rodderick or her blogroll. So I was surprised to find me listed there.
Not forgetting Ed Hillan (from Randalstown!)
- Why with the ‘Randalstown!‘? We got electricity months ago, and the fellytone men say that everything is working fine now, so why are you surprised that we have the interwebnet?
- Cheers for not forgetting me
A little extra (which I’d have put in Slugger’s comments, if TypeKey wasn’t blocking me from logging in): I’ve been accused of being a nasty right-winger.
Ex-squeeze me? a) not nasty, and b) never voted for any ‘-wing’ in my life. Just ‘cos I want lower taxes and more personal freedom doesn’t make me a right-winger. Not in the UK sense, anyway. Maybe in the US sense. But still, less of the meaning it as a bad thing. Looking at you here, ganching…
Hey, I never used the word nasty!
True. But the implication was there in other comments.
You can tell from the comments on Slugger’s page that none of them know you that well….
Enough of your snash! I didn’t in any way imply that being a right winger was nasty – misguided maybe but not nasty.
Well, I’ll be honest. I don’t know what the smeg “snash” means, so I’ll let that comment slide.
Snash means cheek. What does smeg mean? Is it something that gathers up in an uncircumcised penis?
Well, thats one of the meanings. It’s better known as the generic swear word from Red Dwarf.
