Blogroll Amnesty Day: chain, chain, chain of fools edition

Posted under: American history, European history, Gender, GLBTQ, Intersectionality, race, women's history

Internationally known A-list blogger William K. Wolfrum (who also blogs at Shakesville) has tagged humble Historiann for Blogroll Amnesty Day.  This means that I have to send $100 to the name at the top of the list, then add my name to the bottom and then send 5 copies to other blogs, and then wait for the money to roll on in.  Payday is just around the corner, darlings!

So herewith are five blogs with which I’d like to share the cash love:

cowgirlwagonFirst up is Roxie’s World, when you’re in the mood for shockingly articulate cross-species blogging (with a side of Emily D.–yeah, you know me–thrown in for free.  How very public, for a dog!)  Then there’s Notorious, Ph.D., one of the few Americans who got good news about her job last week.  (Hint:  she gets to keep her job, and yet not do it next semester. . .wait for it. . .  while still getting paid!  Unbeflickinbelieveable.)  Next stop is Center of Gravitas, where GayProf can satisfy all of your needs for vintage Wonder Woman comics, gear, and what have you.  Next up is a new blog and blogger on WOC and GLBTQ issues who seems like an old friend already:  Prof. Susurro at Like a Whisper.  Don’t miss her recent review of Still Black:  A portrait of black transmenAnd finally there is Romantoes, for those of you who can’t say no to fries with that sandwich (You’re probably the alternately disturbed men and/or anxious women who google “hot 40 year old moms” several times each day and for some reason reach this blog.  What’s up with that?  Anyway, go check them out.)

Don’t thank me–just send the Benjamins straight to Historiann, c/o American Express, Potterville, Colorado.  I’ll swing by the P.O. on my next ride into town.  Toodeloo, friends, and I’ll see you tomorrow (or the next time I get a bee in my 10-gallon hat, which probably won’t be too long after that first cuppa joe in the morning.)

    Aw, shucks, Historiann, thanks! But, wait, does your tag imply you consider us a SMALL blog? I mean, ’cause, you know, there are no small blogs, only small bloggers, and I’m pretty darn big. Or, since you somehow managed to detect our fondness for the Belle of Amherst, we’ll pass along this little nugget on the relativity of size:

    And then — the size of this “small” life —
    The Sages — call it small —
    Swelled — like Horizons — in my vest —
    And I sneered — softly — “small”!

    Damn, that woman could un-cork an analogy, couldn’t she?

    Anyway, thanks for the shout-out. Eagerly awaiting Historiann’s list of “25 Random Things.” ;-)

    My blog is big. It’s the internet that got small.

    Speaking only for myself, Historiann, I’m delighted to be listed as the very last link in your “chain of fools”! And amused, since our blog is so (mostly) resolutely non-academic.

    But I’m afraid we may have to break the chain–I’m not sure I know of any blogs smaller than ours!

    Yeah, sorry about the implication that this award is bestowed on the smaller by the greater. I didn’t go look up your technorati scores–I just wanted to share the luuuv, like any other blog award chain!

    I like being small. If I wanted to be big, I’d still be someone else. No harm done. (Ps I’m not even on technorati anymore. And I like it.)

    Aaauw… Thanks! Now, if I want to play along, this means no tagbacks, right? ‘Cause you should still know that you’re at the top of my list.

    Doesn’t this constitute a pyramid scheme? lol

    Love these links historiann.

    Speaking as someone who really shouldn’t even be bothering to speak to you I’d like to say thanks. And your check bounced.
