People Actually Read This!

A few days ago I posted Things You Need To Know Before You Buy The Farm and promptly forgot about it.  I’m used to obscurity.  I expected a few people would read my post, nobody would comment, and my dog would pee on my shoe.

Instead, something unusual happened.  I got a bunch of hits.  Bayou Renaissance Man had linked to my sleepy little site.  The Smallest Minority piled on too.  Huzzah!

Then came links from folks I’d never read before and whom I’m happy to hear from; The Travis McGee Reader, Les Jones and The Mellow Jihadi.  (There may be others too.)  My ego is well and truly inflated now!

All this time I thought I was just pissing into the wind.  Thanks to everybody who linked and everyone who reads this shit my carefully worded essays.

Update:  Another link!  This time from the cheerily named End Of Civilization.  Plus a few forums; I’m not sure how to link to a forum but thanks anyway.

    Oh, we’ve been reading for a while, don’t you worry. There are others who share your curmudgeonly tendencies up here too!

    • Half the time I assume I’m on my own and just pissing into the wind. Glad to know there are others who agree with me. BTW: I spend a fair amount of time in Canada and like it up there.

    I might not be known for being cheery, but I know a good blog when I see one. I’m of course hoping there will be lots of stuff about farming and living the real, non-TURD life.

    if you were NOT bad tempered, grumpy, curmudgeonly, cynical, twisted and with a jaundiced, world weary outlook on life I wouldn’t read your blog.

    Hell, you are my kind of people … >};o)

    I found this blog (re: the buying the farm post) at Ernie’s House of Whoop Ass. ehowa.com.
    I have a new blog to follow.

    I forget how I found my way here (I think it was from something I read over at Og’s place) but I liked this one so much I emailed it to my wife, who forwarded it to her business partner, and on it went. You’ll probably be seeing quite a few hits before long. My wife and I have been thinking about buying a bigger piece of land and working to be more self-reliant, so I look forward to hearing about your experiences.

    If you have no objections, I’ll add you to my blogroll as well. Keep up the curmudgeonry*!

    *copyright me, just now 😉

    • Go ahead and link. I’m not always the best about updating my blogroll in a timely manner but I’ll get to it sometime.

      The big thing is working toward self-reliance. It’s a hell of a ride. Good luck!

    I got here through The Smallest Minority, then linked you up at our forum. One of our members said he read ALL of your blog.

    Good stuff, AC.
