More Non A-List Gems

Although it looks like SXSW has brought the blogosphere to a screeching halt, I still want to infect a few more people with The Indie Virus while I’ve got some idle time. After one day of the experiment, exactly zero links are showing up on Technorati. Of course, if you’ve followed Technorati for any amount of time, then you know my last sentence carries about as much weight as a girl who is two weeks pregnant.

Anyhoo, a couple of girlie bloggers are gonna get The Indie Virus today – Kristin and Renee [link removed]. To what do they owe the honor? Both of them change components of their designs more than anyone else I’ve come across. Kristin’s got a new header every time I turn around, and Renee swaps themes like Superman in a phone booth.

So now, Kristin becomes the second recipient of The Indie Virus, and Renee, who’s also a Kentucky-based blogger, gets in on the action, too! Think of this as something you can spread without being called slutty…Yeeeeehaw!

I give this thing two weeks before it’s a 300 lb. gorilla. Oh, and although Technorati hasn’t picked up on it yet, Irish Wonder was the first to bust out a trackback to the original entry explaining the virus, so he gets major e-props for that.

Very cool. It will be 1000x cooler when people I don’t know begin to pass the virus between one another.

Take the Next Step!

Most people don’t notice my headers. I think the majority of people who read my blog do it via RSS :)

Thanks for the link

I didn’t think anyone really paid attention… I just never do anything I’m happy with… Becca’s theme is making me happy till I come up with something better than what I’ve been doing.

I know a few to pass it around to :P

Oh, and by the way.. is that an Italian Greyhound you’re holding there?


Chris P. March 12, 2006

Nooo, he’s a Jack Russell Terrier…with Fox Terrier lineage, I think.

Awww Deuce.

Is Renee a babe?


Chris P. March 12, 2006

Hey Chris, thanks for the link. Heck when I blogged about it I was the only one on technorati using that tag, LOL! It also helps spreading the virus if we all actually use Technorati tags – in my Wordpress, I use a plugin called SimpleTags, don’t know if there’s anything similar for MovableType and other platforms. Those Technorati tags can actually be inserted manually though that’s more pain in the arse for sure.

P.S. – talking of TB ping – must be something on your side as that’s exactly the URL I used when first posting – and I just did it again and I don’t think it worked this time either.

Hmm, guess I’ll have to check into that. Thanks for the tip on the WP plugin, btw – nearly all of my other sites are on WP at this time, so that will definitely come in handy.
