blog 101

When you pull up this page on your computer, whaddaya see?? Well, if you look to the'll see my blog crew. These are my peeps. These are the blogs that I frequent every day.

First, most of them are females. Don't blame me...that's how the blog world is. LOL

Second, all of the ladies are VERY ATTRACTIVE. I'm taken but I can pass on a compliment. Haaaa

Thirdly, all of the bloggers are well versed and tremendous writers. Everybody has a passion and a great ability of self expression

If you've never heard of them...lemme tell you a lil bit about em. Or lemme tell you what I know about em. And I promise not to look at their profiles. LOL

-1-...she is simply that because she is the first to come and none to come behind her (did i get it she doesn't like capital letters. she graduated from michigan state (i'll have maaad jokes come football season) and she has a young daughter. hails from dearborn, mi

BGG aka Brown Girl Gumbo...she has the hottest fashion blog that i've seen. sometimes i go there and i can't comment on the hottest eyeliner in the world but it's a great blog to check out. she's from Brooklyn

CapCity...real down to earth sista. She is a member of the Bloggers Delight crew. She's from DC but lives in NYC. She's an author, too...i think.

Chicas...4 sistas who are all successful lawyers. I can't remember their names but I know TravelDiva. Maaad cool young lady. They do a weekly post called "Joker of the Week". It's a classic. They are all from DC

Dejanae...To say that her blog is all over the place is an understatement. Very creative, tho. She likes to take pics. Great music on her blog, too. She's Haitian and she's from NY

Don...Maaad cool brutha. He's like the Pied Piper of Blogging. Everybody goes to his blog. I didn't know anybody in the blog world. Then, one day he stopped by my blog and dropped me a line.

Rich said...

Man, when I started blogging there were like less than 10 folks in the crew. Now there are soooo many that I can't keep up. However, I think your bolg speaks to me because you are one of the few brothers in my age range. I see a lot of the people you named but you almost need to be hired to blog to keep track on a regular basis.

The Jaded NYer said...

oh yeah, one more thing...

you know my boyfriend, JOHAN SANTANA, of the NEW YORK METS? Yeah, he's pitching against ATL tonight... be there or be square


KELSO'S NUTS said...


I saw your question about how much Bush has made off of his wars and national security state.

Here's a quick and dirty way to figure it out. Take the value of the debt plus the equity of the Carlyle Group today, add to it the value of the debt and equity of the asset-management firms of W.S Farish, Inc., and add to that the value of the debt and equity of Rainwater Associates, Inc.

From that sum, subtract the debt and equity of those three entities as reckoned on August 31, 2000.

Reduce the total by 1/5.

That should give you a ballpark estimate. The number is VERY, VERY BIG by the way.

KELSO'S NUTS said...

JadedNYER: I live and die with the Mutts, too. Guess what city Johan comes from?

Rezidl said...

Good joint....bulldog me.
