I don't have a blog roll list, primarily for two reasons.
One, I have too many posts that are hot like fire to waste time linking to others.
Two, I don't know how to do it. I still pace the room and murmur to myself if I want to embed a link outside of the blogger interface. blog roll is likely scheduled sometime this winter.
So if you like your blogs arrogant, please suck on reason #1. If you like humility, feel free to nibble on reason #2.
In the meantime, blog roll notwithstanding, I have definitely seen a boost in the traffic here recently. So I want to take a moment to toss some salad for those who have embraced TAN and spread the gospel.
So after this love connection, The Assimilated Negro will be back in two and two...
Gawker – How "Gawk At This" avoided the front page is beyond me, but I still feel their ripple effect, even if they're swimming in a different pond.
Blogebrity – who is rumored to be considering creating a D-list just so I can go on it
TMFTML – who said Gawk At This had apocalyptic implications ... or something like that.
Anil Dash – who's a veteran of this blog game, but still let me threaten him with a gat in his own comment section
Hugh/Gaping Void - who may be the only person who complimented me without some qualification or caveat. And in return I criticize him on my next post. How TAN of me. But he's talking global microbrand now, which is gold, so he doesn't care.
Rach-a-el, Orange, Gia – who have made it seem like girls (and even the occasional woman) actually like me.
Jack – because she lives in the hood and is therefore avant garde.
Deadpsin – for helping me get some sports peeps in here.
Straight Bangin – for helping me get some negro peeps in here. Even though I don’t think they comment...
Mark Rayner – who’s been linking my Negroese for a few weeks straight in his Carnival of Satire.
Everyone who inexplicably made "Beans and Milk" my most commented on post thus far.
Krucoff - for making the Battle of the TAN Jam happen, even though we didn't get much voter turnout.
Patches, Cuddles, and God for making my 100 things list so gosh darn interesting
This is What We Do Now – “I have a blog” is one of the funniest things I've read recently.
PT Anderson – who is apparently more interesting and search-worthy than anything having to do with the word “negro.”
Ok, that's all I can muster for now. Must let mouth heal. Anyone I forgot, please take a long look in the mirror and think about how much this really means.
If you still want to complain, let me know so I can blog about it.
