Okay. HERE'S the deal.
I know I'm breaking the 4th wall here or whatever, but I got more hits for this blog yesterday than I have gotten in the past 30 days. And possibly more. I don't know, stupid blogtrackerthing won't go back further than that.
I nearly had an aneurysm when I saw the number of hits. Until I realized where they were all coming from--you Derby girls! CHRIST there are a lot of you. It's like I say the word Derby and Windy City Rollers and Hell's Belles and Sargentina and Genniferal and Riley Coyote and Beth Amphetamine and you guys just start clicking all over the place.
And that is awesome. Just awesome. And what I realized is--if I got as many people to vote for my blog as who just LOOKED at it yesterday, I would be kicking some serious Blogger's Choice ass.
So I have concocted a plan. And this one goes out to everyone: Derby girls, non-Derby girls, boys who like spit-fire girls with tattoos...
If you guys click here and vote for my blog (yeah, you have to sign up but it is seriously harmless. I did it so I could vote for 2birds1blog and there is no spam or email blasts involved.) I will do something in return.
If my blog reaches the number 3 spot (which would currently require 37 more votes) I WILL buy roller skates. I WILL go to practice. And I WILL do what I can to become a Derby girl. And of course I will blog about it each step of the way.
The incentive here is really in watching me attempt to learn how to skate.
Question: did I almost fall down when I tried to get out of bed today?
Answer: QUIET, YOU.
Can you imagine the shenanigans?? WELL? CAN YOU???
I'm sorry, I know I'm self-promoting all over everyone's biz and it is probably a huge turn off. I'm just really pumped about the idea of doing well--AND of buying really awesome roller skates if I do.
And since you've all been so nice, I promise a good Bible post next. See? I write things.
