Blog Rolling With My Homies

One of my all time favorite bloggers, Dad Gone Mad, opened his blog up for new or otherwise obscure bloggers like myself to be able to add their blog link in the comment section of one of his posts in the hopes of generating traffic for their own blog. This was a great idea and a pretty good opportunity for those of us who have, oh say three readers! Since he did this I've actually had a few lookie loos and some have even left a comment here and there. In the blogging realm getting comments can be equated to finding Willie Wonka's last Golden Ticket. I'm not even kidding.

Anyway, because I'm dodging posting something else that I've been working on, and I had a couple of hours to kill last night, I went through and pasted each link from everyone who left their blog link as their signature. Each of the links below goes to an actual blog so you don't have to worry about a hairy naked ass or some massive FFF boobs popping up on your screen if you click on any one of the links. Be warned though the list is LONG!

If you have some spare time click around and give someones creative outlet a chance you may find someone you can relate to or that you just dig their writing style. Consider it a summer project and if you find one that you like bookmark it, leave them a comment, let them know you're there and make sure you tell me about it. I'm always up for a good laugh or touching story. I hear the chick who writes the fifth one down is wicked cool! Or was it just wicked? Whatever!

Here they are listed in the exact order in which they left a comment so there was no preference given to anyone.

I've got this list saved as a Word document so if it would be easier for you to navigate something like that shoot me an email (randomdailyramblings(at)yahoo(dot)com) and I'll send it to you. I just open my document up and click on a link and it opens up automatically from my desktop. I can always tell where I left off because the link color changes.

Happy reading and don't forget to pass on the ones you think are awesome!

Oh my god.

That must have taken forever.

No wonder you've been so silent :}

furtheradventuresofme.blogspot.com (kittenpie)

and

foradifferentkindofgirl.blogspot.com

and

mommywantsvodka.com (aunt becky)

are all on my blogroll (as are a bunch of others but I'm not going to go through the whole list :} )

Wow.

Heather said...

Awesome, DeeDee! I have most of them saved in my favorites in a seperate folder and have been trying to look at them all. I have actually found a few that have become daily reads. At one point I attempted to keep a link of DGM readers. Oh, it's actually still up on my blog, but I am probably going to remove it. It was a way too large project and no one else seemed to care much. 'Cept you. =D

DeeDee said...

hey guys! I just wanted to put this out there so it wouldn't be forgotten. Seriously, who was going to wade through all the blah blah blah of his comments to click on every link? This gives everybody a fair shot, at least I think so. Besides you guys came from DGM and I've loving that I found you there!!

Heather said...

Well, technically I found you on his forum, which is where I also found Kris. But I found Madwoman through comments on this blog. I am going to try really hard to check all these links, and tomorrow I am going to write a post linking to this post as well. I just wonder if DGM is aware of what he's started....LOL

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Dude. That was some serious work. You deserve some kudos for taking all that time.

BTW, I found you because somebody clicked through. I think I may have to be back now that I know the level of dedication you have to blogging!

Pam said...

Thanks - I was hoping that someone would wade through his comments for the blogs! Someone actually came to my blog (pamusc93.com) from here.

Swanny said...

I wish I had that kind of patience. :)

Thanks for taking the time to post that list. I just discovered your blog because I saw that someone had followed the link you posted. I'll be back for sure!

Momo Fali said...

You are a total rock star for doing this! I hope you get a zillion comments! Nice people deserve the golden ticket.

Cobwebs said...

Thanks so much for posting that list! Like some of the other commenters, I wasn't quite up to the task of wading through the whole DGM thread to find everybody's blog. It's nice that somebody took the time to do so. :)

theneatos said...

OMG! I am so famous ... I am on your list!

Gah ... I really need to get off my keister and make an actual post now. Thanks for the kick in the pants.

Sarah said...

thanks for the shout out!

BretCB said...

Good lord, that's a lot of links! It looks a lot more intimidating in this format than in the comments. Thanks for the mention, inadvertent as it may have been.

billandjill.com said...

Wow, the list in much longer than I thought it was from scrolling around in his comments on Big Big Stars.

Kudos for the time and effort this must have entailed.

And thanks for the link! That's me, about three feet down!

Bill, not Jill

DeeDee said...

woo hoo commenters!! thanks guys for stopping in. I was more than happy to create this list. I can't wait to visit each and every one. i'm hoping to make a lot of new blog buddies!!

Heather said...

DeeDee, I challenge you to go down that list and make a comment on each and every single blog on it!

DeeDee said...

Heather you evil little hussy you...you're on!! Can I expect to see your name among each of them as well??!!

Dani said...

Wow! What a woman. Thanks for the time you put into this. I found you as a result :)

Heather said...

Awww dammit DeeDee! Yes, I'll do it too.

Lala said...

wow, that was a lot of work! Thanks for the linky love. I'll have to check them out, slowly but thoroughly of course.

Penny said...

Hi. I found your blog because someone found my blog from your blog. (or something like that). Thanks for the link.

ZooKeeper said...

Thanks for doing this. I'm on the list and have had two new vistors from the list. I had no idea it was because of you and DGM, backpacking dad told me that I should thank you as that is how he found me. So, Thanks again!

Kristi said...

Wow. What a project.

Thanks for the list!

Liz said...

this is a great idea.

here i am: http://hilaritiesensue.com (hilarities ensue)

now i know how i'll spend my friday night!

Ali said...

wow! this is AMAZING!

Liz said...

Yay! This will certainly make those long afternoons at work much more bearable! :)

SciFi Dad said...

I must say, that is an impressive feat. It must have taken some time.

Thanks for stopping by.

M, Ms. R, Mom, Auntie M, Marey said...

Oh mysterious site meter tells me I had one Lookie Lou jump from your blog to mine...so I had to come over and check out your site again.....mind if I copy your link list?

Misssy M said...

Hello Ms Ramblings,

It always intrigues me when I get a comment from a new reader, A certain backpacking dad came over to say hello and be a bit of laugh in the comments box, and clicking on a link, looks like he came from your site.

So your genius plan is working!

DGM idea was great and already I've had a few visitors who've hung around on my blog The Misssy M Missives (written live from your actual Scotland).

I think it is incumbent on all of us on the list to publish the list, so I'm off to post it on my blog in the hope that some of my (lovely and witty readers) get passed on.

I'm sure all of your parent readers could add to my blog collection of things your kids have said to embarrass you in my post "Charm Offensive" written this week. Pass those stories on!

DeeDee said...

Wow look at all these comments. I never would have thought this would have generated this much buzz but it's great!!

I've had a couple people ask to post my list and that is fine with me because if you'll notice my blog is like the fourth one down.

I anticipated it and didn't want to be left out of my own game!! Just so you know I was on DGM's comment list in that position so I didn't cheat and put myself there on purpose!!

Happy blog hopping guys!!

Gerbil said...

Gravy. That takes organization to a level that makes me hang my head in shame.... clicking through DGM's comments to check all the blogs was EXACTLY what I'd been doing.

LiteralDan said...

Hey, this was a nice idea-- thanks for your hard work!

I also didn't realize there were quite so many blogs listed in the comments of that post-- this must have taken a long time to compile. Thanks again!

Backpacking Dad said...

Done.

I've finished the list, and blogged it.

Time to catch up, Dee Dee :}

Jody said...

This is awesome!

Thanks for doing it.

Danielle said...

Came over from Backpacking Dad!

Awesome list! I love finding new funny people!!!

Thanks!

Jeremy (Discovering Dad) said...

Very impressive list! Bloggers are awesome!

Miss Grace said...

Hi! Thanks for putting a list together. It looks like you've got a nice little space here.

madre adoptiva said...

Holy crap that's a lot of blogs! Thanks for stopping by mine!

Heidi said...

Thanks for putting this together! I'll have to (slowly) go through the list. :)

kittenpie said...

Wow. I went over there to look, and can't figure out where he put the blogroll, so good for you for spreading the luuuurve. And also - thanks for popping by and leaving a comment at Life of 'Pie! I was actually about the same spread from my sister, and it is really like being two onlies in many ways, or like being her third parent for a long time.

Heather said...

I've gotten through probably 2/3 of the list. I am giving in for the day and will probably finish up tomorrow. I've already added a few more to my "dailies" and I am impressed with all the fabulous stuff I've seen so far. Puts my sorry ass blog to shame!

Karen said...

Thanks for leaving a comment on mine!

Erin said...

WOW, who would have known this all started from DGM, I clicked a lot of links from that posting, but nothing like what you've displayed here. It must have taken FOREVER. What a great challenge, I for one LOVE blogs! Thanks for giving me organized ammunition!

chicken said...

Hey Thanks!
This is awesome! And...I appreciate your comment...I also can appreciate the fact that you ignore the cat hair and the spilled milk...uhm...the only difference at my house is that it is dog hair and kool aid!
I've added you to my favorites...I need to update my blogroll...

Xbox4NappyRash said...

thats some SERIOUS blog rolling...

well done.

Becky said...

Hey - there's me! I'm on your list - COOL!

Thanks for including me, and for your visit to my silly little blog.

Hope you stop by again.

Mumma Boo said...

DeeDee - you are awesome! Thank you! I've had a couple of hits from your list already and I'm taking up the challenge you gave to Heather. Looks like Backpacking Dad has beaten us all to the finish line - overachiever! :) Anyway, just wanted to say thanks again for spreading the love.

Kelly said...

holy crap! I started scrolling thinking I could comment on these and the fucker just kept going and going. I'll have to send the kids to camp to get through it, but bravo for your hard work!

MP said...

I was wondering how I got a couple new visitors, great idea although it would be nice to say..Hey you were on the DGM list..and encourage everyone to do the same. I think that the majority of people I read are people that left snarky comments on DGM's blog..Best way to find people in my opionion. I'll book mark you and come back for the list!

Brian said...

holy crapolie. summer project indeed! i'll try to get to them in between cruizing the internetz for those triple-f's.

gracias.

warcrygirl said...

Thanks for the love!

Aunt Becky said...

You're the most amazing person, well, EVER.

Thanks for including me on your list. I've been going through some shit and I plan to get through it, but right now I'm just hanging.

Dto3 said...

Very cool indeed!
Oh, and about the Vegas photos - you know the saying. . . "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas!" No cameras allowed in this trip.

So who am I? said...

How did you manage to find a few hours to kill? That's what I want to know! Big pat on the back for putting this together. I will definitely be trolling through the list.

Heather said...

Holy Mother of God, DeeDee, I finally finished them all. I'll be going back to lots of them though. Just what I need, more stuff to suck up my time on the internet! =P

Xbox4NappyRash said...

Did I mention how faaaabulous that Xbox4NappyRash dude is?

No, really, he's rather lovely.

I love him anyway.

Northern_Girl said...

Holy crap - what a list! I don't want to know how long that took so I'm not reading any more about it. Nope. Not gonna.

Thanks for doing this, however. Lots of good linky love in there.

DadGoneMad said...

"The list... is life."

DeeDee said...

I'm literally peeing my pants right now...ok, maybe not literally, but did you see who was here!!?? DGM himself! Thanks man. You're the one who made it all possible.

I feel like I'm giving an acceptance speech or something!

Keep on clicking away everybody. There are tons of amazing blogs out there and we all have a common thread - we appreciate the snarky humor of Dad Gone Mad!!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

So THIS is the list where I'm getting so many new hits from! This is an awesome blogroll!! Thanks for including me!

Deborah said...

Thanks for doing this. We all deserve to be famous!

JCK said...

Hey, DeeDee, this was a really cool idea! Thanks so much for popping over to my blog. I like to swear and leave messes in lieu of my kids having fun, too.

Sarah said...

Thank you so much for doing this!!Oh and who did your layout? It is gorgeous and I need a change.

Sam said...

Hi, I am somewhat late commenting on this, but oh-my-god what a heck of a list!! I am just now beginning to peck my way through and am enjoying finding new blogs!

I am glad that you did this and that I found this in time because I have added my name to a blogging comments challenge (NaComLeavMo!) and this will help!!

Anonymous said...

I love your blog. So much useful information. Thank you.
