My Thanks to....


I want to thank a few folks for making my first six months in the blogging world easier.

Thanks to Vivian Paige, for helping me out with newbie blog questions, sharing her wisdom, and giving me honest feedback on the Senate race in VA.

I have appreciated the kind words and moral support from the Virginia Beach Dems. I have enjoyed the progressive views from this corner of the HR blog scene. You have managed to ruffle some feathers this year.

F.T. Rea at Slantblog gave me some insightful comments when I appeared to be the lone VA blogger covering Israel's invasion of Lebanon. I really enjoy SlantBlog's coverage of Richmond and Virginia life and his original art work is an added bonus.

Recently Terry Carter at The Liberal Progressive gave me much needed assistance to get my blog back on the lefty blogs blog roll. Terry strikes me as one of those wise old souls....I find it hard to believe he's "only 21." I was still playing a "jock" during that time frame....I love D.C. btw, and I have made this my D.C. must read blog.

Alice Marshall of GoTV has been a source of inspiration for me. Alice's analysis, thoughts and opinions are "must reads" in my book. I definitely appreciate how she acknowledges quality blogs emerging in VA. This helps me stay on top of things.

To all of you who have visited, linked, and especially those who attempt an honest dialogue (no matter what your beliefs and position) I thank you and appreciate the encounters....I will try to be as courteous as possible even with the passionate topics...but being a "mosquito" I can't make an ironclad guarantee. But I'm not a disease carrying "mosquito" so my bite is not deadly....I'll save those "disease periods" for the few who truly deserve a deadly bite. For those of you who are just spin, try to spread mindless propaganda, and "play word games" I will continue to "call you out" whenever you post nonsense comments.

Happy Holidays.....Buzz...Buzz...

Congrats! I'm SOOOO glad to have you in Hampton Roads. It can get kinda lonely here on the progressive/liberal side sometimes. I really appreciate you keeping us in touch with the progressives in HR, as I do tend to get bogged down in all things strictly Democratic. Thanks for all the great videos from the young lady whose name I can't remember. Also, your create a link doesn't work??
(VBDems is 9 months old, BTW.)

I was hoping that by putting the link in the post that would do the same thing.

I hate to plead the ignorance once again of a newbie...but that is the case hrre...

Is there an online tutorial with all this basic blogging info in it??

I used to be able to easily link to you, but I think since you switched to the new blogger I suddenly can't. I never switched. I'm still operating on the old blogger. I'm afraid to!

Congrats on six months, Mosquito! Glad you're writing. We can always use another voice in Hampton Roads.

As for the Create A Link - it never worked for me, even with the old blogger. I just send a trackback when I link to your posts.

(BTW - I really don't like the Blogger Beta - it wants to log me in with the wrong blogger ID)

Keep up the good work. We don't agree on much, but you've got a great blog.

Mosquito said...

Thanks hr....BTW...this is the United States of America...the beauty of our country is we don't have to agree on "anything." I bet we agree on more things than we think...time will tell


LOL...Vivian you and Eileen are the "techie girls" I don't even know the first term much less what a "trackback" is...

....M.

Alice Marshall said...

Thank you for your kind words.

Mosquito said...

You are welcome Alice....

Isn't it wonderful to have a world filled with wonderful people? That's how kind words come about after all...

Buzz....M

Terry said...

Thanks for the kind words. I enjoy reading your blog as well!

As far as the links go, if you click on "links to this post" the URL in your address bar will take you straight to the post you're trying to link, but you have to remove the "#links" from the URL, so that it simply ends in .html

Try that, it should fix the problem of the broken links... :)

Thanks Terry...

I'll start doing this.

Has anyone written anything good on the "mechanics" and how to blog for newbies...hmmm...maybe I ought check and see if they have one of those dummy guides for this tuff...
