Bloggy Stuff


Milwaukee’s Layton Park Blogger has this week’s Carnival of the Badger. Make sure you check it out. Next week the Carnival is hosted by Ask Me Later. To submit a post for next week, pick one of the three ways to do it:

Also, I’m slow in publicizing this, but is hosting a Blog Summit, Saturday, March 18 from 1 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha. Registration is free, but they ask you let them know ahead of time you’re coming. They’re announcing a “Blog of the Year.” I just want everyone to know, if I am selected, I do have a speech prepared:

Thank you all for coming. First, I’d like to thank the little bloggers I’ve stepped on along the way. Without many of you my blog would not be where it is today, which is to say, the best.

I couldn’t have ripped off your ideas, stolen your bandwidth by linking to your pictures, and then mocked you relentlessly.

I’d like to thank State Representative Scott Newcomer for persevering in his homelessness. He’s an inspiration to, well, maybe not quite all of us, but he is the inspiration for many punch lines to come…

And finally, I’d like to thank my family, whose names I forget at the moment, for allowing me the time and space to blog. Without that sense of isolation and loneliness, I might never have turned to blogging, and have instead chosen a more productive hobby.

So, to my fellow bloggers, thank you for this honor. I’d like to share this trophy with each and everyone of you, or at least the first person who buys it from my wife’s Ebay store, Wiggy’s Warehouse.

I know there was some controversy about this blog summit: Old School vs. New School vs. Corporate Media vs. West Coast vs. East Coast. I would just like to say that blogging for the sake of “Art” is for poor people. Show me the money. So if somebody wants to make me an in-house corporate blogger for big, big, big bucks, we’ll talk*.

*However, if you’re calling from Journal Communications, I’ll pass on the stock options, thanks. I want cash.
