Blogiversary

…with a bevy of babe-age.
Now why didn’t I think of that?

Christina sez: Congratulations! Here’s to three more.

Be sure to head on over to Bob’s place and thank him for the mammaries.

… who’s blog turns five years young today. I always enjoy reading her ‘forceful’ yet thoughtful prose and analogies.

Is it some strange coincidence that today is also Einstein’s birthday and Pi Day? That’s some kind of cosmic trifecta there, methinks.

Be sure to head over to her place and wish the Jedi Princess a happy blogiversary and many more to come.

And save me some Pi, please.

A belated happy day to a couple of good friends in the blogosphere.

Be sure to wish a happy blog anniversary to:

The Current (1yr)

and

Reaganite Republican (2yr)

Tell ’em a rusty robot sent ya.

Be sure to drop by and wish a hearty Happy Happy to my good friend Steve of Motor City Times, who is celebrating his second blog anniversary!

To commemorate this auspicious occasion, we here at the Robotic Institute for the Advancement of All Things Bodacious have searched high and low for the proper gift and it comes to mind that a little Rule 5 might be in order.

Happy Blog Day my friend.

Also, don’t forget to check out ToM’s Sunday Rule 5 Roundup.

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot…

Happy Blog Day you drun-ken auto-ma-ton…

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot.

Thank you, thank you. You shouldn’t have. Really.

“Speech! Speech!”

Well, if you insist.

There once was a somewhat shy *cough* never outspoken *hack* designer/drummer *blech* who could no longer withhold his views from the world, or at least the few people outside his circle of friends who might listen to those opinions. He felt compelled to begin an online journal to hopefully spare some of his close friends from the verbal outrage at what was happening in America. Once started on that journal, it soon became a journey, to where no-one knows, but for now has been a source of developing friendships and personal edification that he will never forget or regret.

I, being he, have met some fine patriotic people online in the blogging community and have come in contact through their writings with many more whom I probably will never have the opportunity to meet. That is no fault of any one, it’s just an observance that the number of conservative bloggers is growing. This is a good thing. I love it.

Unlike Stacy McCain, of The Other McCain, I have no aspirations of taking over the entire blogosphere, though I certainly don’t hold it against him that he wishes to do so. More power to you Stacy. I simply want to add my voice to the many who are crying out that our government has been transformed from its original purpose and was/is being further transformed in an exponentially quicker pace into the monster our Founders warned us against. That fight still remains. To what end is a matter on which I pray daily. Can I get an Amen?

I’m happy you have all accepted my quirky, jerky, rambling attempts at humor and hopefully motivational or educational essays and rants. You really know how to make an abby-normal guy feel welcome. As Carol of No Sheeples Here likes to say, I’m proud to be standing guard over liberty with all of you.

Thinking on how to commemorate the first anniversary of my online life, I thought I might trace back and find a few highlights to share with you. A sort of naked baby pictures type of thing, except without the baby, or the naked.

OK, some will be babes, and some will be nearly naked.

Looking at the stat counter at the old site, I see the most popular post was a video found at iOwnTheWorld that is still the funniest takeoff of Babes in Toyland I’ve ever seen. iOwnTheWorld also gave the Robot a huge present on Christmas Day by linking their entire graphic to the Robot. I know they didn’t have to do that and was nearly glued to the site meter Christmas Day watching the hits come in. What a freaking nerd I am. 🙂

Thank You, iOwnTheWorld.

Speaking of babes, coming in a close second was a post titled Christina Hendricks vs Adriana Lima vs Megan Fox, which, now that I’ve linked it again here, all you babe watchers will hit it some more and possibly bump it past the other post. Sex does sell. I’ve learned this fact from Stacy McCain’s post on How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog in Less Than a Year. Yes, folks, Rule 5 is alive and well at Mind-Numbed Robot, and is sitting on the porch, drinking a beer, watching the babes go by thankyouverymuch.

The third most popular post from the other site was a quickie from an email which happened to include some more hotness. It was picked up by The Dailey Gator and Bob Belvedere and was entitled License For Your House Included in Cap and Tax!

If I had to pick, the one post from the old site that gave me the most satisfaction was Reclaiming the American Spirit which was picked up and quoted from again by Bob, along with dozens of other bloggers who were shouting against the tyranny taking place in the form of Health Care Reform. I remember the pride I felt being included in the company of those proud patriots, knowing in my heart the love of freedom we all feel and the anger and desperation we all had at that very moment. I know we still do, but this is a happy day, right? RIGHT!?

The fourth most popular post from the old site was a few nice ladies holding flags. What could be so menacing? I felt like it was linked by damn near the entire blogiverse, including The Troglopundit, Obi’s Sister, The Daley Gator, The Other McCain, Fishersville Mike and American Power.

Almost everywhere that is, except Instapundit, as Lance noted in one of the more backhandedly selfish comments I’ve seen at the Robot:

Could somebody get this guy an Instalance, please? I could use the instaseconds.

Ha! That Troglopundit. What a card. Always hitching a ride on someone else’s train. But who am I to judge? It seems to be working for him. Maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity to buy my favorite unfrozen caveman a beer.

Dot Com…

The Robot moved to the new digs on April 26 this year. Four months ago. The old site had 9,400 unique visits according to Sitemeter at the time. I have no idea if that’s good, bad or what in the big scheme of things. Since the move the traffic has tripled and I have no doubt that it’s due to the help from my friends at The Resistance: Steve, Matt, Mike, Doug, Chris and the ever campaigning Russ. Not to mention my fellow Gulf Coast neighbors Jeffrey and Red. Thank you guys for the links and encouragement.

The top four posts on the new site so far are:

  1. Daisy Fuentes Pictures Day– for obvious reasons.
  2. Rule 5 Saturday – Julia Stiles – see above.
  3. Someone Said This Was Funny– someone on Stumbleupon loves this pic. Someone else on Stumbleupon hates this pic. I tell you what, Bub, I hate it too, but not because its defaming your favorite President.
  4. Dennis Prager Q & A At University of Denver– a great lesson. The great lesson? Certainly one of them.

My personal favorite posts from the past four months were the Robo-Love Experiments #1, #2 & #3. Of the 3 I like the third the best. They were a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time, even if, as Belvedere says, I need help with my naming conventions.

I’m over a thousand words now in what was going to be a quick “thank you for your support” post, and I’m sure I missed a bunch of folks who need a good thanking, including the frequent commenters like  Bunni, Opie and Georges.

If I missed you, please feel free to cajole your spouse, significant other or some bum on the street to give you a solid thanking for me, right smack on the backside, where you’ll remember it.

Thanks again for visiting the Robot. It’s been a memorable first year. I’m proud to be among you who will stand up and say No More!

Tomorrow it’s back to the trenches for me. In the mean time, show some Robo-Love and BUY A FREAKIN’ T-SHIRT!

Or, as Stacy and Smitty like to say, HIT THE TIP JAR!

Cheers! ~ ‘Bot

UPDATE:

Thanks to Chris Muir for the mighty DayByDay mention. You Rawk!


UPDATE II:

I’ve added Chris’s strip featuring the ‘bot and while I’m here I wanted to mention a few other bloggers who have helped your humble host maintain his sanity while we watch with horror and still struggle against the Dem-olition of our country.

Oh, and look what Bob gave me, gee, just what I always wanted. Kari Byron portraying Freddie Kruger.

Thanks Bob. I’ll cherish her as long as I live, which may not be long. This is like owning a toy that can’t be toyed with. Something tells me your female offspring are to be feared, my friend.

That contraption on her hand says she’ll do the popping of these balloons, don’t you know.

The symbolism here is too deep for my circuitry. I feel a few transistors going into overload.

Must. Stop. Staring. At. Kari.

OK, enough update. My boss is coming. Shhhh. Kari, watch out with those pointy things already! Shh!
