mind expanding nonsense

Link Farms

Recently in the news, was a story about how Department Store retailer J C Penney employed people to create Link Farms in order to raise their page ranking on Google. A link farm is any group of web sites that all hyperlink to every other site in the group. Although some link farms can be created by hand, most are created through automated programs and services. Hey business is business, and that gave me an idea…watch-out!

I’m an avid organic gardener. I grow all my own leaf lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, green beans garlic, snow peas, chard, parsley, basil and special medicine. And being an avid blogger, who is growing on some people, the thought of a link farm to increase my readership was intriguing.

I can’t to a ‘farm’ like the Big Guys do, but maybe a “link garden” would be right for me. But that would tie up too much of my time, not to mention the fights I’d get into with The Wife over computer time. I get three hours in the morning, from 5 am till around 8 when she gets up, (that’s sharing in her opinion). She plays spider solitaire about 5 hours a day, when not gossiping with friends via email. She feels that’s fair, because all I’m doing is spewing forth filthy bathroom humor, embarrassing her in front of the whole world with my blog antics. She thinks it’s time we consider buying another computer. That could be costly, but, solve a lot of problems. You know what? And it’s a great idea.  I think I know what I’ll get her for her birthday…..a deck of  cards.

Got side-tracked there. In reality, I can’t even do a link garden. But, I could do a link potted plant [no jokes about pot plants please]. And getting to the point, not to mention tying in link farming;  I have a new blog!!! It’s just a seedling, but being a good gardener, I’ve been watering it, fertilizing it with plenty of steer manure and boner meal (yep here’s plenty of double entendres in there. If one entendre is good, doubling it is even better.) It’s not your garden variety blog, but a raised bed of nonsense verse, limericks, song lyrics (with special treatment) and generally bad poetry. And…it’s illustrated.

So check it out at your own risk. You don’t have to be over 18 years old to enter, but having the Mind of a 12 year old would help. Most of my inspiration has come from bathroom walls, but only those found in 5 Star Hotels. It’s called The Blithering Idiot and that was my attempt a linking.   Enjoy 🙂

Take me serious?

You must be delirious.

Take me delirious?

You’re much too serious.

  1. I’m all for a bit of linking Hansi, but only with the fairer sex.

    Ashton-under-Lyne, UK

    • Bill…We might call that “Hooking up” over here in the States. But same difference; if ya want a fair bit of sex, you’re gonna have to link/hook up the old ball and chain.

  2. I thought John was kidding but no, Hallucinating Hansi is also the Blithering Idiot. And you do it all in the early morning before your wife wakes up. Impressive and creative as well. Don’t be dependent on others to boost your site, build your own link farm with your own blogs. Lead on Hansi.

    • Ralph…It’s all your fault!! Bet ya hear that one from the wife all the time. But it is your fault. You once replied to me that doing bad poetry was OK. Taking that as an encouragement, that’s exactly what I did. Not only is it bad, but fairly raunchy as well; but all in the spirit of good fun. Hope ya check it out when the wife’s no around 🙂

  3. great news – http://www.tbaoo.com – i think that self promotion and – http://www.tbaoo.com – link farming is a great idea. i -http://www.tbaoo.com – look forward to checking out another – http://www.tbaoo.com – blithering idiot !!

  4. Ok…so link farms are way over my head, but your blithering idiot side might amuse me to no end! =) I’ll be visiting shortly. (BTW – are the drawings yours? Just curious..haven’t followed you for long, so please don’t beat me…I have a headache. *snicker*)

    However, being of the fairer sex AND married, might I offer up a suggestion on the birthday idea? Don’t. You might just be surprised how many orifices you end up with that have a card speared into it! =) Instead, go for the vacuum cleaner…I’m sure you’ll have a better shot with that! =) *wink*

    • Jewell…the drawings are mine; either pencil or pen n ink. And actually today, the 23rd, was my birthday. Spent the whole day just sitting around the house in my birthday suit. I’ll take your advice regarding the Wife’s birthday.

      • Well I like your drawings and I would almost say that I am jealous =) almost! =)

        Awww (((((((( Hansi ))))))))))) Happy birthday hon! =) Hope you had a relaxing day, and I’m guessing that because you are still posting at night that you didn’t have a bail hearing from scaring one of the neighbors through the windows? =)

  5. Don’t forget the fertilizer…

    Cheers to another year of farming and linking.

  6. I’m thinking of starting my own link farm as well Hans, I already have the blog name registered; ‘BloggingForPleasureAndProfit.com’.

    I’m not sure the farm will work with just two though. I expect that the only traffic to the Blithering Idiot is coming from here?

    Commenting on loads of blogs is like link farming, but without you owning the blogs and having to nurture them with posts etcetera.

    Not sure about anything in Leamington Spa, England

    • John….Go for it! I’m a big fan of ‘growing your own’, and that goes for link farming as well. When you decide to unleash you new Blog, feel free to leave plenty of self-serving comments from that blog, here. Regarding The Blithering Idiot [and speaking of self-serving comments], surprisingly I’m getting views from folks with poetry blogs. Boy, are some of them surprised when they read that shit 🙂

    The great 20th Century poet, George F. Staat, whose contributions to the world of letters can be found even with Popular Science magazine, once wrote about graffiti artists. As your blogs are your walls, I think Mr. Staat’s remark on public journalism is most fitting.

    Fools have names,
    and fools have faces.
    They leave them scrawled
    in public places.

    Toar and I wish you good luck on your new venture.

    • Thanks for the encouragement Geezerpuss. I sure hope your big foolish butt stops by The Blithering Idiot, and leaves a few droppings on the lawn of my new blog.
