Send Me Your Linkies, Ladies!*

I'm going to be celebrating a little something in my next post. It's nothing major, but it is something kinda special. I can't tell you what it is...yet. But I will give you some hints:

1) Many of you have already celebrated this.

2) No, I'm not pregnant.

3) It has something to do with (what else?)...blogging.

4) But no, for the love of God, it has nothing to do with BlogHer. (I AM going to BlogHer, but I will not be posting about it prior to going because, well, haven't you heard enough about that dang conference already?)

So, if you haven’t guessed it, I will reveal all soon. You just can't wait to find out, can you? (Hey, stop yawning!)

Now, here's where you come in. In order for me to properly celebrate this special milestone, I need something from you. If you don’t give it to me, it won’t be much of a celebration. (No pressure.)

What I would like is from you is this:

Please provide me a link to your all-time favorite post. If you have two favorite posts, by all means, send me two links. The only rule is that it has to be a post that YOU wrote.

Got it? Not a post that your favorite blogger wrote. Something that YOU wrote and that you love and that you want other people to read again. And that’s all I need.

You can email me the link or post the link in the comments here. This is not the time to be shy and modest. I want to hear from you, and I want your links baby!

No linkies, no celebration.

*And Moobs, if you’re reading this, please send me your linkies too. Since you’re the only dude who reads my blog, you can send me three linkies if you want.

*****
P.S. I’m sorry if I haven’t stopped by to comment on your blog yet. Damn blogger is acting up again and I could barely even get a post up. I will be by soon though. Promise! Oh, and please go visit my renter, Mama? Mama, Come Here! You can get to her site by clicking on her thumbnail above my blogrolls.

Here's mine. Not exactly a fun read, but my most raw. And very cathartic to write:

Oh, the suspense! I am so bad at suspense!

I'm also not too bright, so I can't even guess ....

But here's a link to my favorite me-post. I think.

and

And for the record, THIS WAS HARD!

Blogger Andrea said...

Don't know if the link worked and it looks like it got a little cut off. Here they are again, properly linked this time.

Trump

and

In the Pink

And THIS WAS HARD! Did I say that already? Oh. Well, THIS WAS HARD!

Congratulations on whatever it is (blog anniversary would be my guess...or did you win some kind of award???)!

I agree with everyone else. This IS tough.

Probably one of my favorites because it was one of the most difficult ones to actually put into words.

Blogger lildb said...

Mike and Jennster beat me to the 100th post thought.

well? is that it??

I know, I know. we have to wait. although, I may die in the interim. which would suck. so you should tell us now, so that if I die, I'll go peacefully, b/c to not know may cause me to writhe in eternal angst. wouldn't you feel bad?

heh. that started out trying to be funny and went nowhere. ehhh.

1:53 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

Damn. You guys are hard to trick. I gave you too many hints, huh? Not that I'm saying it's gonna be my 100th post or anything, I'm just saying that you guys are smart that's all.

Oh and Lildb, Jennster, Mike...I don't see any linkies. Don't make me hunt you down on your blogs and leave trollish anonymous comments! Cuz I will do what I have to do to get the linkies. Even resort to blogger threats. Not that I'd really go through with it, but I got you scared for a second there, huh? No? OK, going now...bye.

Tough to pick out a favorite blog but one that still tugs at my heartstrings is the one I dedicated unto my daughter's 2nd birthday!

So I'm new to blogging (and new to commenting on blogs too, especially this one!) however I wanted to get me some publicity! hehe. This isn't my favourite as such, cos it's not that great, but it's my most recent, and I do think they are improving (plus i love the title). Congrats on 100 posts, it'll be a while before I get there!
