It’s Blog Pimping Time …and not just mine!
This week The Ranter’s Box crossed the 200 reader mark and I couldn’t possibly be any more chuffed about achieving that amazing milestone. And because I have been fortunate enough to have a few of my lovelies pimp out my snarky-ass blog, I feel that a huge batch of gratitude goes out to Mynx, Mrs. Hyde, Rabbit, A Southern Man and Simple Dude.
Thank you also to all of you dear readers who not only take the time to read the silly stuff that spews forth from my keyboard but also amuse me with your incredibly kind and entertaining comments. A word pervy, bitchy, ranting Empress couldn’t ask for better readers.
I also appreciate the ever encouraging proclamations that The Ranter’s Box will be named a Blog of Note by the blog gods over at Blogger. But since those gods are an incredibly fickle bunch, I’m not going to hold my breath on that wish coming true anytime soon. Perhaps it is now time to start taking matters into my own clever little hands.
The Eleventh Annual Weblog Awards, otherwise known as The 2011 Bloggies, is now accepting nominations for those blogs that you deem worthy of recognition. Nominations are being accepted until January 16, 2011. You can click on this link to nominate yourself and all your favorite fellow bloggers here. There are numerous categories and I would be forever grateful if you were to honor me with a nomination. (Take that you Blog of Note gods for having forsaken and deprived me of recognition!)
And while we are on the topic of blog pimping, I want to give a shout-out to some of the fantabulous and effingtastic blogs that never fail to bring laughter and joy into my day:
Bruce at stupid stuff i see and hear is without a doubt the King of Word Pervs! If you like your blog posts chock full of curse words and clever commentary, then Bruce is your man. And legend has it that his blog is banned in the UAE. Go Bruce!
Oilfield Trash over at Make Daddy a Sammich will amuse you with crazy stories about his life. Murphy’s Law plays a big part of the equation and you can’t help but cheer Oilfield on from the sidelines. Gotta love this guy!
Mrs. Hyde at A Bitch Called Mom is the blogosphere’s best kept secret. There is a very good reason why I awarded her with a ‘Your Blog is Bloody Brilliant’ award. Mrs. Hyde is full of witty sarcasm, tells hilarious stories and she is the kind of person you’d want to sit down with for a cup of coffee or a ginormous pitcher of cocktails. Two thumbs up all the way!
Dan over at From the head of The Danaconda is in a category all his own. The ladies love him and the guys admire him. He draws you in with his incredibly entertaining adventures and theories on life. Mix in heaping does of intelligent humor, sex talk and unbelievable reader comments and you are guaranteed to smile. I’m proud to call him my pervy friend!
If you aren’t already familiar, rush on over and check out these blogs. You will be so glad you did and no doubt find yourself laughing in no time.
Happy Weekend my lovelies!
