A Blog Is Born

Holy frijoles!

The kind folks at Blogger have singled out my sister blog Who's In Charge Here? as a Blog of Note!

I feel like I, Splotchy is James Mason and WICH is Judy Garland. As I take that final walk into the ocean, I salute the accomplishment of WICH. Now where's me alkyhol?

P.S. Thanks to jin who gave me the 411 on this.

Congratulations. I'm sad that I've never been a blog of note. I'm starting to suspect that all those guys I had sex with, who said they worked for Blogger, were lying.

dguzman said...

WOW, color me IMPRESSED! I guess everyone's figuring out the coolness of the Splotch.

I used to hope for blog of note status; now I'm just glad if I get some comments! I think I blog more for my own amusement than anything else.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Cool. Congrats on that.

Randal Graves said...

splotchy, you are a rock icon. Good job, sir!

dguzman, heh, that's how I look at it. ;-) If people comment, cool. If not, cool. There are about 87 quadrillion blogs clogging the tubes.

you have a judy fan as a lurker

Jess Wundrun said...

It's awfully crowded over there now. Pretty soon you'll be like boing boing or shakesville.

And they're taking it so seriously

Remember us little people please.

jin said...

you linked to my *hush hush* blog!
*jin briefly freaks out*

Maybe I can finally get a doodle out of you for that, huh?!

Timothy Donavan Russell said...

Congrats, man!

Cup said...

Why, you're the Edward R. Murrow of our little blogworld!

Splotchy said...

oops jin! sorry. I changed the link. For my transgression, I can provide a doodle for you in the near future.

jin said...

Thank you!
It's worth it if I finally get a dooooooodle!!!

*jin thinks for a minute*

Paris Hilton at the point when she realizes she's eating a chocolate ex-lax cake.

Fran said...

Well smell you for a week Mr Splotchy!!!

You are clearly in charge here, you blogger of note.

Freida Bee said...

Who's In Charge Here is pure brilliance. I guess Blogger isn't as lame a you've been sayin', huh Splotch?

JK, Blogger. That was Frogger and he thinks that's brilliant too.

jin said...

I would swear your sitemeter said 2 thousand something yesterday AM.
That would mean you got over 5,000 hits just from blogs of note!??!

Splotchy said...

beckeye, the sister of a guy I was in a band with had sex with a guy who claimed to be Dean Ween (he wasn't). Just remember to check their credentials next time.

d, I think single-purposed blogs are far more likely to get singled out. I would seriously doubt I, Splotchy would ever receive such an honor-- it's too messy and all over the place. However, I generally prefer messy kinds of blogs, and you have a pretty damned noteworthy one anyways.

jon, thanks man.

randal g, it's funny, I was excited to tell people, but once I posted this, I didn't really tell many other non-bloggy people. I'd have to explain what a blog is first :).

buzz, thanks. As you can tell from my blog, I'm all about the Judy Garland.

cdp, thanks!

dc, as long as the liza fans stay away, I'm safe.

jess, consider yourself remembered. And I hope you continue to vote!

tim, thanks a lot.

beth, great, but now I need a good sign-off phrase. How about, "Try not to hurt anyone too bad"

franiam, aw shucks.

freida b, was I dissing on Blogger? I honestly don't remember.

jin, I'll try and get to the doodle later today. Yes, my stats are going freaky crazy. About 3,700 yesterday, and we're up to about 1,500 today.

Freida Bee said...

I'm still in the throes of being sick and that was, perhaps, one of my lamest attempts at humor ever!

I love WICH?

Jess Wundrun said...

Say, didn't your wife say that Who's In Charge Here was pathetic or something when you started it?

I hope your the kind of guy who rubs it in.

Splotchy said...

freida b, no, no, whatever. I might very well have dissed Blogger, I just didn't remember the instance is all, and was a little confused by your post. And I still am -- maybe I've been doodlin' too much.

jess, she didn't say the blog itself was pathetic, she said my groveling to get votes was. I'll be sure and tell her that the best things in life come to those who grovel.

Coaster Punchman said...

The night is bitter, dude. But we're happy for you.

lulu said...

Wow, nice comment count. I'm hoping some of your coolness rubs off on me...

Dale said...

That's pretty exciting news! Way to go Splotchy!
