High Strangeness: It's All About the Links

It's All About the Links

What a great day I had today. I was meeting my friend, Best Man and blogging mentor Axxx for lunch, but when I got to the restaurant I bumped into my old friend Lxxxxx. Lxxxxx and I used to work together for a rather dysfunctional employer, and she was one of those "sane friend in an insane workplace" friends who get you through so much. We hugged and the first thing she said to me was, "I've been reading your blog and laughing my ass off!" Which was pretty much the nicest thing she could have said to me.

Then I lunched with Axxx, and he was nice enough to give me a few suggestions for the blog, one of which was to share links with people to attract new readers. So, in that spirit, I'd like to share a link to Axxx's wonderful photo blog, FlakPhoto. Now he will feel obliged to link to this blog, and I will inherit some of his millions of readers and he will inherit some of my dozens of readers. I like the way this works.

But that's not enough. Lxxxxx's kind words about my blog made me feel bad that I have yet to see her band perform, even though she's been inviting me to their shows for a couple years now. So, going with the theme, here is the link to The Full Watts' myspace page. You should listen to their music and go see them.

Andy also told me that he is always most interested in reading my blog when I've posted a photo, which gave me an idea...

Axxx does not know that I swiped this photo from FlakPhoto.com
