    Overdue thanks to some people


    by Sunny on 5th December, 2005 at 12:04 am    

    No blog and news roundup this weekend I’m afraid due to lack of time, but it is about time we said thank you to a few blogs and commentators for plugging and generally bigging us up since we launched three months ago.

    1) I’ll start with a quick thanks to Garry Smith, aka Curious Hamster, at BSSC, a top British blogger who is always worth a read. Nosemonkey, another political heavyweight of the British blogosphere needs to be bigged up, as do the constantly debating peeps at The Sharpener, and PD Berger, who (despite being in NY) does his best to stay on top of British news.

    2) Thanks also to Neha Viswanathan, who regularly plugs us on Global Voices and DesiPundit (the 800-pound gorilla of South Asia).

    3) Other fellow Britons who have excellent blogs and deserve mentions: Scribbles, Wardytron, Siddhartha, Sonia, Natalie Bennett, Mr Jarndyce, Laban Tall and the lovable Mad Munky.

    4) Not forgetting Brett Lock, who has gone a bit AWOL of late, j0nz - who I sometimes don’t agree with but is still amusing, and BertramOnline.

    5) Outside the British isles, Sakshi Juneja deserves a big hello and so does Arzan and Rickshaw Diaries.

    I think that covers it all for now. If I haven’t said hello then its either because you have already been plugged, are already linked, I forgot, or you don’t deserve it! Hah!

    Update: I knew I’d forget some people :(
    Thanks also due to El Cid on zones2and3.com (and for his comments on here), to the hardcore liberals at Apollo project, and to Dr Feelgood Steve

      Woo hoo!

      Thanks Sunny. Keep up the great work. And let me know if you come across any killer WP plugins…

      Balle Balle…Shaava Shaava !!!!

      The Apollo Project has also plugged your site. OK I know we don´t deserve a plug back, but I thought I’d mention it!

    5. Nosemonkey — on 5th December, 2005 at 9:40 am  

      “Political heavyweight”? Moi? If only I had the salary to go with it…

      Good work with this place though, old boy - you wouldn’t be getting the links if you weren’t doing something readable and worthwhile. The internet’s a meritocracy - especially if you get your baps out.

    6. sonia — on 5th December, 2005 at 1:41 pm  

      why thank you for the lovely mention ..

    7. Sunny — on 5th December, 2005 at 1:56 pm  

      pleasure was all mine, everyone.

      EiNY - I have one actually. If you’re looking for a theme that you can customise heavily without having to spend ages on CSS, then check out the bionicjive theme.

    8. sonia — on 5th December, 2005 at 2:10 pm  

      ah very useful to know that..

    9. El Cid — on 5th December, 2005 at 5:35 pm  

      hey, muchos thank yous

    10. Siddharth — on 5th December, 2005 at 6:04 pm  

      Thanks PP. I’ve been down with the flu last few days. feeling run down, but was cheered up by this namecheck. Keep up the good work, yer rarseclarts!

    11. Neha Viswanathan — on 5th December, 2005 at 6:55 pm  

      *cough cough*
      Spelling mistake! :D

    12. Rohin — on 5th December, 2005 at 6:59 pm  

      Some excellent blogs linked up there.

      Thanks to Patrix as well as Neha VISWANATHAN as I think he’s linked to us even more on DesiPundit. But of course Neha has linked to us on GVO (and she’s a Londoner, so infinitely cooler). I’m sure those sites bring us lots of traffic, they’re houwge.

    13. Sunny — on 5th December, 2005 at 9:58 pm  

      Whoops, sorry Neha, all sorted now. Yeah I mustn’t forget PAtrix who has himself, with that boundless enthusiasm, made Desipundit into a real powerhouse in the Indian blogosphere.

    14. Neha Viswanathan — on 6th December, 2005 at 8:09 am  

      Thankoo - Thankooo! Yeah - Pat is the in-hourse Gorilla Master! He controls our thumbs! (Muahahaha)

      And Rohin - See you at GV-05!

    15. Scribbles — on 6th December, 2005 at 11:36 am  

      A big thank you dear Sunny,
      You’re a big fluffy bunny,
      That you got my name wrong I don’t care,
      ‘Cause this blog’s a breath of fresh air.

    16. Sunny — on 6th December, 2005 at 1:30 pm  

      Doh!
      I don’t know why I keep making spelling mistakes :(

    17. Scribbles — on 6th December, 2005 at 10:30 pm  

      It’s hard to prrof read your own work.

      (spot the deliberate mistake)!
