Updating the Blogroll and a Thank You


I've got a hundred few blogs favorited that I need to add to my blogroll. Also? If you'd like to have yours added leave a comment or if you're shy, drop me an email through my profile over there on the right! I've let this go unattended for way too long.

I'd also like to say hello to all of the people who stopped by here since Friday via Woulda Coulda Shoulda. The lovely Mir linked my site in her Friday entry and when I checked my stat count before I'd had my morning coffee, I was shocked to find the amount of heavy traffic that had been through here. So I was all, "um WTH? WHO is talking about me?" so I checked the referral list and it revealed page after page of the following:


And after that stellar bit of detective work, I was all, "it's probably that". I know, right? The CIA should seriously consider hiring me. Anyway, I was highly honored. You see, Mir's blog was the first "Mommy Blog" (to borrow the condescending air quotes used by Hoda Kotb on The Today Show) that I'd ever read. And it was through comments left on her blog from her readers that I found other awesome blogs that I still visit today. Another and? Leaving comments there brought new readers to me! Her blog also is what inspired me to be more personal and less generic in my writing. So, thank you, Mir! I don't think you know just how much Monkey finding my name hilarious really means to me! Hint: a lot.

Editor's Note: I know that Blogger was having an allergic reaction to comments yesterday. Hopefully by now its had its medicine and is operating at an acceptable level of functionality.

I'm glad it wasn't just me--Blogger had me convinced my computer had a virus.

I love it when you use air quotes.

Karen said...

Don't even get me going on Blogger yesterday. I have suspicions that it was Google across the board.

jess said...

I agree, "Tootsie Farkelpants" pretty much IS the funniest name ever. I only wish I'd thought of it first! ;)

Texasholly said...

Yes, most likely you will receive this comment by email three times if what is happening to me happens to you. That really raises the bar of how good a comment has to be if you are going to read it three times. I am a little freaked out. Stage fright.

I am thankful to be on your blogroll.

I am now going to click through to Mir so she can be astonished at the power of Tootsie Farklepants' readers.

He wanted me to tell you that he thinks Boobie Frickenlips was "just plain silly." You're welcome.

Of course you have heavy traffic my dear, your blog rocks AND you're HAWT!

You're just so damn much fun and you give such great advice!! (though causing my pocketbook some fits,'s okay!!)
I'm gonna look gorgeous in a few weeks!!!

"Tootsie Farklepants" is the greatest name ever. And I bet you are on most folk's blogrolls (like mine) under that name, not "Vintage Thirty." And I am thrilled that you included me on your blogroll.

Love your wit! (And hate Kathie Lee.)

I'm one of those that "came over" via Mir. I love it here. I'm not leaving.

JCK said...

I'm glad you said something about the comments. I thought it was my end, too.

Happiest of Mother's Days to you tomorrow, Tootsie - my sister! :)

{sue} said...

Your name AND your writing are very funny! I'm glad I clicked over from WCS. And I am dying laughing at the phrase "Tootsie Farklepants Superhighway" from the WCS comments!

Nora said...

You are famous! Happy Mother's Day!

RubiaLala said...

I'm really glad Mir linked over to you because I love your blog. I feel like I've been missing out this entire time!

Happy Mom's Day, Tootsie F. What would any of us do without other "Mommy Bloggers" to commiserate, laugh and sympathize with?!

Woman with Kids said...

I'm with Warrior Knitter... I came over from Woulda Coulda and I've moved in. It's very comfy here.

Hey Tootsie! I haven't read your blog before, but I have seen your comments on Mir's blog and The Mom Bomb. I look forward to adding yours to my reading list.

PS. I've used the name generator too. I became..... Snickle Dippensniffer. =D

stephanie said...

When you first visited my blog, I was totally excited. And even now that my husband has a total blog crush on you, I still like you. I think that's cool.

Thanks for having me on your blogroll. It is an honor I do not take lightly.

I feel a little thrill to be on that blogroll, dearest. And, looky you for getting major traffic.

Laski said...

Honored to be on--so don't bump me off, MMMKay!!!

OK, so I just have to say that Hoda Kotb made me hate air quotes. And, whatever, she's on the 12th hour of Today--who watches that anyway???

Rebecca said...

I saw the link on Mir's blog, but didn't click because "I don't have time to read another blog." Then, I saw your comment on Sue's blog (My Party of Six) and since I have SO much self discipline (heh) I clicked it... and,yea now I guess I have time to read another blog. :) Great stuff!

I'd love to be added, if you're interested. I have to do this too (update I mean) -- I have all sorts of new-and-wonderfuls in my reader that haven't made it onto my visible blogroll yet. At least on my list of priorities, this is above cleaning the oven, so it should happen pretty soon. :)

I want to be on your blog roll, I mean, if you'll have my shenanigans and antics. And when my website gets its face lift and lipo (any day now...), I'll put you on my blog roll!

I'd love to be added to your blogroll if you're so inclined -- you're going on mine NOW! :)

If it ain't too late, I'd be honored if you added me to your blogroll, I certainly plan to add you to mine.

Literarily Yours,

Your Pal Pinki said...

I'm a new blogger and I've found your writing inspiring and fun! Could you add me to your blogroll? Like my friend Margaret at Nanny Goats in Panties, I'd be super honored!

Read You Soon,

I came here through Classy Chaos, which I found through Rura and Miss, which I found through... well, actually, I'm not sure. Either way, I love your whole blog and I always check out the sites you mention!

Also, sorry for commenting backwards - I'm working my way back through your archives, rather than starting at the beginning because I'm weird like that.
