One Year and it’s time to pimp yourselves

It is amazing how quickly time passes. Today is the One Year Anniversary of The Ranter’s Box here in our funky little blogosphere. Never in a million years did I think that 365 days later I would be blessed with so many wonderful and loyal blog followers.

The virtual friendships that I have developed with people from across the globe are absolutely priceless. And your kind words and always amusing comments bring much joy and happiness to my day. For this I am forever grateful.

In honor of your awesomeness I’d like to follow in the footsteps of the gorgeous Mynx over at Dribble and ask all of you to please do the following:

Scroll down to the comment section below and leave your blog name along with a bit of information about your blog. Feel free to share the names of any other blogs you fancy as well. Links and humor are definitely welcome. Today is all about YOU!

Cheers and let’s get this pimping party started!!!

  1. Congrats on one year!!!!

    Humor, scotch, rants, life lessons, fatherhood, and the Emu death squad...I cover a little bit of everything, and try to use my rapier like wit to stab every pet peeve.


  2. Big congrats! It's been a great year, hopefully you'll get the BONing you deserve.

    I have no problem pimping myself! I'm a selfish prick like that. So come check me out peeps!


    It's basically just me alternating between being a smart ass and a dumb ass.

  3. Congratulations, my sister from another mister! I feel so blessed to have met you in the blogosphere and, God willing, I will be blessed enough to meet your in real life one day. Your awesomeness knows no bounds and I love you to itty bitty pieces!

    I want you to have your moment in the spotlight, so I will save my pimping for another time. xoxo

  4. I'll never miss out on a chance to whore myself.

    Congrats on making it an entire year!

  5. Congrats on your blogoversary.

    I live in Scotland and my blog is just about anything, everything and the ups and downs of life with a disabled child.

    I think laughter is the best medicine and I like to laugh a lot, hence the reason I follow you :)

    This is my blog The Giggle Fest...

  6. Congrats, Empress! Looking forward to many more from you.

    And, since you insist:


    If you can figure out what exactly I'm doing over there, I'd love it if you'd let me know.

  7. happy 1 year to you!!! i expected more of an Oscar speech kinda vibe (and I'd like to thank my best friend in the sandpit when I was 4 who encouraged me to never give up...) BUT i will never pass up an opportunity to put our blog out there! thanks for being my pimp and working for free ;)


    Our blog is for people who like dreaming up fun ways to escape the 9 - 5 / enjoy living like a rockstar on roadie money / like seeing the world / drinking vodka / eating snow / any or all of the above!
    do it, we're awesome and are destined for greatness. or something. x P

  8. Confess to being a newish follower - I saw one of your comments on a fellow blogger's post that was screamingly funny so I had to follow. (The post was on...ahem...jewelry for the privates.) And I haven't been disappointed. Congrats on your blogoversary and, like Mrs. Hyde, will skip the pimping and leave the spotlight for you. :)

  9. Congrats on your one year milestone. Thanks for the invite to your fiesta.

    Hello everyone, folks call me underground dude. Over at my place you'll find critical yet humorous observations about pop culture and the world around me. I also like to share some photography and music from time to time with my followers. Oh yeah, I have a frequent tendency to geek out. Come on over and check it out:


    Now, who's ready to get PWND in a game of beer pong or flippy cup!?!?

  10. Congrats on the anniversary Madam Empress. This calls for a drink (thanks for giving me an excuse brb)

    Okay, I'm ready to toast now with what is supposed to be a strawberry margarita ... but I grabbed the Vanilla Vodka instead of the Tequila Bottle and didn't notice until after I made the drink (and was wondering why I couldn't taste the Tequila duh). Ah well, tastes okay and I couldn't WASTE it, that would be alcohol abuse and just wrong.

    Where was I? Oh yes, a toast. To the Empress! May her rants grace our readers for many years to come. And now on to the blog orgy ... um I mean love, blog love, yeah that's it.

    Hi, I'm Mustang Sally and you can find me at Functional Kaos where, as the name suggests, you might find anything. I like to take photos, read, make music, eat, and take long walks on the beach (oops, this isn't THAT kind of bio) and then write about it. Sometimes I bitch, I'm not always nice and my life has been chaotic so long I wouldn't know how to function normally. C'mon by anytime, love to have you.

  11. Happy pimpaversary Empress!!! I'm having a stiff one for you tonight. Drink I mean. Or do I?

  12. I will gladly whore myself out on your blog.

    I talk about random things I see and hear and what I think about them. Some stuff is about my life, others is pop culture stuff while others is somewhere in the middle.


  13. Congrats and happy bloggyversary!!

    Check out my blog, the Tsaritsa sez, if you like your humor served with a twist of sarcasm and a few shakes of keepin it real.


  14. Congrats on the one year blogoversary!!!!

    My blog is about me moving from the city to the country and learning to work cows. And everything in between! http://omylee.blogspot.com

    My second blog is where I can rant and be snarky and not be censored like I am on my main blog. (if you type in this addy it will take you to me, if you copy/paste it'll take you to some religious site. Weird.) http://omylee2.blogspot.com

  15. Congrats on your 1st year! I am CW Martin at Tilting At Windmills, http://humbleauthorbsp.blogspot.com
    And I sincerely hope not to be accused of panty pilfery at this party, too!
    ((especially since I've never seen any of my ill-gotten gain.)

  16. I love reading your blog. You are funny and witty and a Smart Ass AWESOME.
    One of my favorite blogs was about the Barbie with Bigger Boobs... genius.. Happy one year and I hope to read you for many more.

    I am glad you have followed me and I always look forward to your comments.

    My little blog is "The Chick in the Chair Perspective" a commentary on my life as a disabled woman living in an able bodied world and laughing at it! Its about family, sex and marriage... come check me out!


  17. Congratulations on the anniversary! I bow to your superior list of followers.

    If you'd like, please visit my blog to spread the love around! It's crazy stories about my crazy family with some crazy drawings thrown in for good measure. And no, my kids didn't do the drawings. I don't know why people always ask me that.

    Thanks, and here's to another year! *clink*


  18. Hello my lovelies! Thank you so much for all of your kind words today. It is wonderful to see you all pimp out your blogs and let everyone learn a bit about you. Please be sure to make some new bloggy friends by visiting the blogs of those who have commented. xo

  19. No pimping! Just wanted to say happy anniversary!

  20. Damn, I am so late to the party! I hate me.

    A Lot of Layers explores the many weird layers I have, which have led to stalking my child's school until the police were called to discussing having a gay brother in rural Wyoming all the way to a desire to pose nude for artists in order to lose my poor body image. Sometimes I throw in recipes and Youtube videos of talking dogs. Igotta-lotta-layahs - you'd better come watch...


    Congrats on your bloggaversary. Mine year is in Sept.

  21. Congrats on a year...how time flies, huh? I am coming up on a year at the end of the summer and still can't believe it. I can't believe that you have only been blogging for a year and are such a rockstar at it in such a short amount of time! I bow to you!

    Thank you for the opportunity to pimp myself! Since my computer has been dead for over a week I don't have too much up that is new-except for a rant about how tech people totally screw those like me who depend on their computer like blood through veins and shove their fist up your ass with no lubrication because they know you can't fight it! GRRR!

    I'm Jewels from JewelsTurning30.com. Feel free to stop by and have a look around!


  22. Happy Anniversary!
    I brought along my drinks trolley from here - good thing too seeing as Mustang Sally cant be trusted to remember to bring the Tequila!
    I also brought along all a box filled with the left-over underwear from Mynx's party...feel free to reclaim ...or exchange :)
    Right...time to party!!!

  23. Happy Blogiversary my darling friend and as you have so nicely pimped me out already I shall pour myself a lovely margarita and one for you.
    Can I just warn you that you might want to lock up your undie drawer as in my experience, these blog parties can get a little crazy.
    Gave you a little shout out over at my place too.
