Overdue thanks to some people

Posted By Sunny On 5th December, 2005 @ 12:04 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

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 [1] BSSC, a top British blogger who is always worth a read. [2] Nosemonkey, another political heavyweight of the British blogosphere needs to be bigged up, as do the constantly debating peeps at [3] The Sharpener, and [4] PD Berger, who (despite being in NY) does his best to stay on top of British news.

2) Thanks also to [5] Neha Viswanathan, who regularly plugs us on [6] Global Voices and [7] DesiPundit (the 800-pound gorilla of South Asia).

3) Other fellow Britons who have excellent blogs and deserve mentions: [8] Scribbles, [9] Wardytron, [10] Siddhartha, [11] Sonia, [12] Natalie Bennett, [13] Mr Jarndyce, [14] Laban Tall and the lovable [15] Mad Munky.

4) Not forgetting [16] Brett Lock, who has gone a bit AWOL of late, [17] j0nz - who I sometimes don’t agree with but is still amusing, and [18] BertramOnline.

5) Outside the British isles, [19] Sakshi Juneja deserves a big hello and so does [20] Arzan and [21] 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 [22] zones2and3.com (and for his comments on here), to the hardcore liberals at [23] Apollo project, and to [24] Dr Feelgood Steve

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!

“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.

why thank you for the lovely mention ..

#7 Comment By Sunny On 5th December, 2005 @ 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.

*cough cough*
Spelling mistake! :D

#12 Comment By Rohin On 5th December, 2005 @ 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 Comment By Sunny On 5th December, 2005 @ 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 Comment By Neha Viswanathan On 6th December, 2005 @ 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!

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 Comment By Sunny On 6th December, 2005 @ 1:30 pm

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

#17 Comment By Scribbles On 6th December, 2005 @ 10:30 pm

It’s hard to prrof read your own work.

(spot the deliberate mistake)!
