Skippy The Bush Kangaroo Blog is celebrating TEN YEARS of blogging this week.
Man, that is a lot of Blogging!
I owe Skippy big time, as do countless other small blogs, because Skippy was the very first Big Name blogger to actually link to me, wayyyy back when I had only been around a comparably short time.
I have never forgotten that thrill and I never will.
Skippy, in partnership with the late Al Weisel, owner of the famous Jon Swift blog, got together and created Blog Amnesty Day in response to the blood letting several years ago when some Big shot left wing blogs decided they didn’t need the little people anymore and purged hundreds of smaller blogs from their Blogrolls.
This Blog has been a proud participant every year since, where we open up our Blogrolls to any blog with less traffic and the whole thing just turns into a blast and you get to meet the neatest people and they get some much needed exposure, all for free.
This is just a couple of reasons why we love Skippy.
In truth, Skippy is one hell of a nice guy too.
Please take a minute of your time and swing by and congratulate the Blogfather of Blogtopia..(Y!SCTP)
For those uninitiated folks out there who may have never seen the now famous (Y!SCTP) and were wondering what the hell it means, all I can say to you rookies is that you should go see Uncle Skippy right now and thank him for all of the wonderful internet traditions he has started over the years and they are many.
Ok, ok, I’ll take pity on you and save you a web search. (Y!SCTP) stands for;
(YES! Skippy Coined The Phrase)
Go read the last three posts over there right now and see for yourself what a prolific and well known hellofaniceguy Skippy really is.
His credits are pretty damn impressive,
His was the first Blog ever named on CNN, the Daily Show has joked about him and he was one of the first winners of the ultra prestigeous Golden Monkeyfister Award, of which this humble Blogger can also add to his very own bragging rights.
Go see Skippy right now and add him to your Blogroll.
Tell him Busted over at Ornery Bastard sent ya!
