Kick Your Blogroll Up the Arse

Note to me: Revisit on October 9th. Ish.

Feck's sake, enough with the memes already.

Well, just this once...

Misssy has had this brilliant, totally original idea, not in any way like BlogDay, which I knew was coming up but then forgot to do anything about, sigh. Seems I can't avoid it this time.

The Rules of Kick Your Blogroll Up the Arse

(Hint: This is the cut out bit for you to post)

What you do is you go to four of your favourite blogs and pick a blog from their blogroll that you’ve never visited or commented on. You then add them to your blogroll or feed, read them for at least a month (by which time there should be no turning back) and give them a chance to invade your life.

Then you duplicate the main part of this post with a note on whose blog you got it from. Stick the four new blogs you are going to read up , tell us briefly why you chose them and whose blogroll they came from. And if you want, coerce others mercilessly into joining in. Then start reading.

I have chosen these:

From I Am Bossy's blogroll, Miss Britt because she leaves witty comments. And she has a radio show with Avitable. I would have cheated and just said Avitable, but I've been dipping my toe in there for over a year.

From Jenny The Bloggess, Ruth Dynamite. Just for the name.

From Daphne Wayne-Bough, Joilet Jake's Weekly. I think I could probly keep up with a weekly blog.

And finally, from Anna's Little Red Boat, Katy Newton at Everything Is Electic. Again. I admit I did read her original blog. Exactly once. Then she deleted it. Wonder if it was something I said? FSM, I hope not!

Like Misssy, I am passing the meme onto ALL readers of this blog, all commenters, everyone in my current blogroll and even those pesky lurkers in the skirting boards. But I officially want to pass it onto everyone whose blog is linked in this post.

Oh and if you do decide to take on the challenge, let me know so that I can toddle on over and have a peek.

Toot toot!

Electric. Electic isn't even a word. Stoopid fingers.

But it's only one letter from a really interesting word.... Go figure

Jenny, the Bloggess said...

Ruth Dynamite is awesome.

And now I'm going to go find someone on your blogroll and discover their site.

Good work, dude.

Misssy M said...

Nice job. Now, be careful out there, Mr F!

Giggle! said...

YAY!!! I'm doing this too!

(I was the chosen one from your blog Mr Farty! *flutters eyelashes*)

I've just postponed it for a day coz I just witnessed a baby come out of Trubs twat! :-) heeehee!

Mr Farty said...

S - Eclectic is a wonderful word. It means blogroll, right?

Jenny - *blushes*

Misssy - Ooer.

Giggle - I have got to read about that!

Miss Britt said...

Ooh - that sounds like a great way to do it!

Mr Farty said...

Miss Britt - Don't thank me, thank Misssy. And Bossy.
