100 Followers And Another Award

This past Thursday I received another award on here. It was my fourth award in one week (I guess the word is getting out about me) and I was very happy to get this award. The award seems to fit me pretty well and it comes with no rules (not that I am against rules, but I am a rebel so to speak). The award is the “Your Blog Is Bloody Brilliant” award and I got it from The Empress over at the Ranters Box. You should go check out her blog as she is funny and she writes really well. So thank you Empress, I really appreciate the award.


On Friday I also reached another milestone in addition to getting 4 blog awards in one week, and that is I surpassed 100 followers (well 110 at the time of writing this post). I never thought I would get to the 100 follower level. No really I honestly never thought I would get to this level. Having 100 followers is like starting a business and it taking off really well. And this mark is really an accomplishment for me since I only have 60 posts and that is like almost 2 followers per post. So thank you to all of you who have stuck around with me, and have read the little stories that I like to tell as well as my nasty perverted jokes. Don’t worry, I won’t sell out now that I have reached 100 followers and change my content or my jokes and stories. I plan to continue writing about all of the things that have got me to this level. So stick around because there will be a lot more of my style of humor, common sense, and stories of my life.

So since I got a following now, here is a little bit about me. I like to write but more importantly, I love to talk and tell stories. My sense of humor would be best suited for standup comedy, but since I don’t have my own show I will have to continue to write. I did not always like to write because I suck at grammar and the English language in general. English was the one class all through school and college that I sucked at. But I have found that over time I seem to be getting better (well at least in my small little mind at least) with writing and trying to get what is in my head to come out of hiding and jump into Microsoft Word.

Well you the lovely follower did not come here for me to babble on about myself, you came here for the picture I am about to post. You see if you didn’t already know, I promised a while back that for each 50 followers I get on here that I will post a picture of myself for you guys to see. So without any further delay, here is the picture of myself that I promised you the lovely reader back from my college days when I was a stripper.


When I get to 150 followers I will post a picture of myself from back when I used to be an internet model. Have a great day everyone. I hope this picture of me makes you have a great Monday.

  5. @ Simone, thank you. Glad I could get someone salivating this early in the morning.

    @ Birdshit, you need more followers. I will have to pimp you out. And thank you.

    @ Brans, I will have to do some blog love and blog pimping to help get your numbers up.

    @ Simpledude, thank you. That software is a "secret" and these women don't see or know the difference. Damn if only I was that skinny.

  7. @ Bruce, thank you. I would not have gotten here without some blog love and pimping. And you certainly helped with that so thank you.

    @ Paxford, no it is not bad to have an Elmer Fudd moment. And thank you.

  8. Dude, watching you take off is like watching your kid grow into a successful member of society and then getting a higher college degree than you, so you want to smack your fucking kid in the nuts, WAIT, no it's not really like that( sort of) I mean the fact that I followed you when you were but a wee blogging babe and then you blew my out of the water despite the FACT I LOVE WRITING and always have makes me so stappy for you. ( new word- stabby happy). I appreciate the pic of you, it was a real pallet cleanser after the last blog of all Mario Lopez pics. I thought I would need a cold shower to get over that, but then I came here and viola, you fixed everything ! But in all seriousness Dude, you have been busting your ass, putting out great articles an it IS noticed. I am super proud of you, you make me smile 5 days a week and don't use my AA batteries, this makes you solid gold in my book baby. HATS, uh er, PANTS OFF to the Bloody Brilliant Blogger Oil Field Trash.

  12. Well you are bloody brilliant, except for the outfit choice. Not sure I'm looking forward to your internet modeling pics.

    ReplyDelete
  13. @ Peachy, thank you for all of the nice kind words. I remember when you and Miley were 2 of my first 5 followers. You have been since the very beginning and I appreciate that. And I am glad you liked the picture.

    @ Heather, I am glad you enjoyed the picture. And thank you.

    @ Manager, thank you.

    @ Becca, thank you very much. Glad you like it. And thank you.

    @ Copyboy, well I did not have much choice in the outfit due to the nature of my job at the time.

  16. Wicked sexy ears there! Boink Boink

    Congrats on the followers and the awards!!

    Wouldn't have ever guessed you sucked at English. So glad you decided to overcome your suckiness and pluck out your thoughts here.

  17. Dude, WHEN did I tell you to start blogging? And you were all "Nobody will read" and I thumped your forehead and said "You dumbass, if you write it, they will come". Yet, you delayed.

    You left your humor, wit, sarcasm and stories OUT of the blogosphere for over 6 months while I PLEADED with you to blog...
    I was all "Don't make me roll your window up!" and yet, you delayed.

    My baby is all grown up with his 110+ followers, about to surpass my numbers. *sniff*
    I'm such a proud mama
    Hold on. I need a kleenex. I've got the vapors, darling...

    What did I say? "People will love you"... and here you are, all skyrocketing into fame in the blog world with a bagillion awards just in the last few weeks.
    I think you should do a vlog. Tell a story via video. Really. Seriously. Because as funny as your blog is with the written word, you are far funnier in person.

    I'm just so damn proud of you, NF. So damn proud.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Haha, congratulations on the 100+ followers. I'm sure if you keep posting pics like that you're bound to keep picking up more and more.

  19. @ Daffy, thank you. I am glad that you liked my picture. And thank you, I am also glad that you enjoy my writings.

    @ TS, I hope people enjoy me for my content and not my body. I hate it when that happens.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @ Miley,

    Yes you are correct, I should have listened to you. But you know how it is when you think about something that might be a good idea and are apprehensive about it. I was that way with my blog.

    Sorry for the 6 month delay.

    And thank you for being all proud and non-Jewish vaklempt.

    And thank you for being proud of me.

  21. @ Miley, thank you again for nudging me, because if you wouldn't have nudged me into writing all of my bullshit, I wouldn't have done it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. You are welcome. I really am non-Jewish farklempt about it all... and I really am proud of you :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm glad you are doing it... REALLY glad. I think there's about 100+ people who are glad as well. You have a gift of storytelling and you have a lot to offer this world in many ways.

    Now, if I could only get you to post about our trip to Orlando... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. PS - you should learn to listen to a woman the first time. I know it's completely against your character, what with your giant cock and mass amounts of testosterone.

    Don't start getting all penisy about blogging, though. You're not getting paid for it. Yet.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ Miley,

    Thank you. Thank you. And thank you.

    The Capital One bowl trip is on the list for a future "Worldly Wednesday" post.

    And if I learned to listen to a woman, I would have my balls fully cut off even more than what the doctor did when I got snipped.

    And I can paid to do this? Wait I am getting paid right now to post this. lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. bwaahahhaa, blogging from work=getting paid. Even better, you're getting paid by the French bastards, so it's like EXTRA win ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ Miley, that is very true.

    But people can actually get paid to blog?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Y.E.S.
    Read the Bloggess and click the stuff at the top of her page.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ Miley, I have read some of her stuff from time to time. I guess I will have to go back and re-read it to see what you are talking about.

    But I am no where near her status as a blogger. And I seriously ever doubt that I will be that good any time soon or ever.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congratulations on hitting 111 followers!! And thank you for posting that oh-so-sexy stripper photo of yourself ; )

    Keep up the great work. I love reading about all your adventures in life.

  31. Congratualtions on both the award and followers!
    Now put some damn clothes on...

  32. If that is a real picture of you and not something you pulled off of 'Google Images,' I am so in love with you! Not only are you cute, but come on, the underwear...in public places! With my narcissism and your inhibitions we could rule the universe!

    ReplyDelete
  33. ...grrr...I meant uninhitions (not even sure if that's a word, so don't check!)
    But what I was saying was...ahem...let me try that again...with my narcissism and your uninhibitions, we could rule the universe! Mwuhahahahah! ...thought I'd add that last part in for effect.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @ Empress, thank you for pimping me out. I got here through your help. Glad you liked the picture.

    @ Pat, thank you and will do.

    @ Sandra, the head is really me, the body isn't (photo shop is some good shit) lol. I wish I had that body though as I am fat bastard now. Although when I was in high school I was that skinny.

    And I knew what you meant so it is all good. And you are right we could probably rule the world.

  35. Congrats on the followers, I bet you made alot of tips at your old job too

  36. Google Adsense. You're doing it anyway, might as well make a few bucks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. @ Issac, thank you. And the only tips I got were from blind little old ladies.

    @ Sharaf, thank you.

    @ Jen, I had heard that adsense does not really pay all that much. Like a few pennies a month?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Some people earn a lot...some don't. It's free to sign up so I'm trying it out.

    ReplyDelete
  39. @ Jen, let me know how it works out for you. I have always been curious about it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is far better than my Canadian flag photo! hahaha. Love it.

    Congrats on the followers...I'm still holding strong in the 80's and not moving much...but what can a girl do? I've posted naked pictures and everything...and still no budging...hmmm...I may start to get a complex soon!

  49. Don't send Peachy your followers. I don't like her "kitten". It has food on the counter where I want my food to be.

    ReplyDelete
  50. @ BTN, thank you.

    @ Peachy, put what on me? Dollar bills?

    @ Miley, of course she has cats on the counter, she lives in the south and has a transmission in the bath tub.

  57. Playboy is going to be available in ipad.:)
    Reminds me of 1 incident where one of my collegue shared his experience where in his prev job, his gift from Playboy enterprises for fixing their issue was free subscription of Playboy magazine to his office :)
    No wonder why people want to stay away from Playboy group , they think all the ladies in their workplace as "gals next door" and all professionals - subscribers of Playboy magazine
