No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

A spike in traffic to Frieddogleg (for our purposes, “spike” is defined as two or more visitors on the same day), all of it coming from here, caught my attention earlier today and prompted me to do a little additional sleuthing. It wasn’t hard to find the link.

BDR has been a good friend of this blog almost from the beginning; a similar link to one of my earliest posts produced a similar increase in traffic that helped launch Frieddogleg into the blogosphere* back in ’09, scant weeks before we lost Jon Swift forever. I couldn’t be more delighted that he has done so once again, wittingly or not, to help kick-start my renewed commitment to blogging (or bleggalizing, as BDR would probably say).

Those already familiar with BLCKDGRD need no introduction; those who aren’t need only know that BLCKDGRD is a quirky blog featuring a wide range of topics, including sports, music, avant-garde poetry, literature, scathing political commentary, and enough links to interesting articles on equally interesting blogs to keep you interested until you run out of time.       

Go there. Introduce yourself. Get acquainted. If you have a blog of your own, exchange links. If you’re a victim―rather than a beneficiary―of 21st-century economics, it’s not like you’ve got anything better to do.
