Shame =

You must first see this post:
Due to the number of friends I think I have, my links list can get a little lengthy. So I have instituted a few different categories to break things up and keep those who want to browse my friends blogs lives a little easier. So I made the "Blog pals who don't post often enough to be linked further up on this page!" section. I was hoping that this would nudge some of my friends who don't post often to post a little more. Apparently it has worked a bit, with the above blog and my friend Adam's blog getting more frequent postings.
For future reference my rule for this section is if a blog has 2 or less posts in a month it would drop into that section. If they post 5 or more then I would move them back up. If the posting hangs in the 3-4 range then the blog stays where it is at.

All in the name of shame, so I'm not sure if it's because the shame of being at the bottom of your blog in a section reserved for those who are participant-less or if I was just thrilled to have even been mentioned and this in return is a "woo-hoo" moment, regardless either, or, doesn't matter. Truth: Thanks to Google Reader I keep pretty current on the adventures of Johnny Metropolis, and the last blog about the "Less than Jake" concert was one of my favorites, just an FYI and I haven't got Soni to read it yet. So there you have it, a comment for the cause of moving up that blogger ladder. :)
P.S. Maybe we don't post cause there isn't much clever comments spilling out of my brain but, I couldn't help but get a good chuckle out the "Less than Jake" blog, not cause you split your head open but, cause the imagery was great and with my imagination I could see the whole thing in action :) Oh and another one of my favs, the spelling blog, I should make one about proper grammar and the fact that I never read through half the stuff I type and Soni always asks me if I read what I have wrote before I send it cause it doesn't make sense, including my less than perfect texts. Please I barely had time to write what I wrote much less go back a read it, ha!

Man, John. You are so easy to manipulate.

If I complain a lot and then dedicate a post to you will you post a picture of me under my name on your side bar?

It would do wonders for my self esteem.

With the amount of comments you get on your blog, you probably have 5 times as many readers. So if I had a blog I would definately be trying to get it in the best space possible.

Amber said...

My only beef with your links is the "Top current blog posts" section. Cameron has some pretty good blogs but not all the time, not that I have any to compete with him. I do feel that he needs to experience what it is like to be in just the normal sections when his posts are below par. Just a suggestion if you are taking them.

The Pachuilo Family said...

Thanks John for recognizing the work that went into that post even though some people are calling it "easy manipulation". I am now committed to 6 posts a month.

Laura Lee said...

That was pretty great pachuilo family.

John, If you're going to stay true to your system you might have to move your brother down much further on the list -- it looks like his last post was in June. Unless family gets special treatment...which, I understand. But if that's the case, I think you should break things up even more and give family their own category.

I don't know what Amber and this Pachulio character are talking about. I think Cameron is hilarious. Your blog is cool, too, but that Cameron guy takes the cake.

I know that you'll assume this is Cameron since it's an anonymous comment, but it's not. I promise. I just think Cameron's blog should always be at the top of your links cause he's so extremely funny (and pretty cute, too).

That's all I have to say. By the way, this isn't Cameron's wife, Betty, either. In fact, I'm a guy.

Bye.

Hey everyone! this week I taught John what a narcissist is - him. As I am sure you could guess he was thrilled when he found out, silly narcissist... Clearly his friends are just as narcissistic as he is, like Cameron and the Pachuilo's.

The Pachuilo Family said...

Well Teen Wolf, Andrew Morrison claims that a reasonable amount of healthy narcissism allows the individual's perception of his needs to be balanced in relation to others. So I guess John, Cameron and I are just balanced individuals...

Cameron's Corner said...

Hell's Yeah. Anyone else have anything to say?

KATEMARIE said...

I am narcissistic too. (at least all of my exes would agree).

But seriously, I AM narcissistic. David Letterman's acknowledgment doesn't help my ego.

Narcissism is a Scorpio trait.

The Pachuilo Family said...

All I know is it feels good to be at the top of the "ands". Thanks John!!!

The problem is that we are not all as interesting as you are. Therefore some of us who "don't post often enough" have nothing better but to bore people with our everyday lives...I'm glad for the nudge though. I'll try and step it up for you, so I can be higher on the page.

RyanandHailee said...

Is that my sister posting on your blog?!?!?!? She can't even update her own blog, let alone comment on someone elses. I think she's just trying to make it to the top like us cool folks! I must say that she has a better excuse than April though(being 8 months pregnant and all). Speaking of April... Where is she these days??? Nice post John... BUT you still haven't answered my question from the last post! According to my calculation this will make it Ryan 3... John 1...

Hey anonymous, did you say you were a guy or gay. It sounds like you have a bit of a man crush on Cameron. Unfortunalty he is 51% straight, or else you might have had a shot.

Anonymous said...

Hey Guys and Vearl, this is anonymous again. I've changed my mide about Cameron, now that I know he's 51% straight. I always thought he was 25% straight because everything he writes sounds so gay.

Cameron's Corner said...

Hey everyone. I just want to remind you guys that this is JOHN's blog... not mine. My latent homosexuality isn't a secret to anyone who knows me so let's all try to stay focused on the fact that this is JOHN's blog.

If you must discuss homo's, let's direct the comments toward John. I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

Shanna said...

Jpn, I will be the first to admit that I totally deserve to be on the bottom list! What can I say for myself? Nothing...hence the lack of blog posts...or my life is just to amazing and exciting that I don't have one spare minute to post about it. I only have time catch up on the lives of my friends.

P.S. I LOVE that you read my friend Vanessa's blog! Did you find her through my blog? I'd like to take credit for that, she is one bodacious babe!

Beau said...

Hmmm... I don't see protocol for newcomers. How does one get their name on the blog pals list? I don't even know where to start.

Bri said...

Wow, I'm honored to be a link up in here. Is it weird that I feel more pressure now?

You better put up a new post or you'll have to put youself on the "don't post often enough" list.
