Yes, but when I do it it's ironic.

The internet is full of dorks. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of democracy, and I love the ease with which every common nobody can stake their place on the internets, but please! Some of the muppets you come across.

People with no talent, using their blogs as a personal rant platform, posting dorky photos of themselves, the results of every dimwit quiz they come across, Friday randoms, cat blogging. Everything and anything to get out of actually doing the work to create something. What a load of rubbish!

But of course in this sparse wasteland you come across some real gems. People with integrity, talent, who take the time to write something insightful and meaningful, and don't resort to the quick fix blog fillers that so many plaster their webspace with.

I am not one of these people. I pretty much fit the first description and saying that I'd like to introduce the latest gimmick I've been taken in by.

Map your visitors! Yes, I'm desperately hoping that at least some of you are nerdy enough to go along with this, but please add yourselves to my frappr map, the Mutant Cat Minions.

Yeah, I know, it's a stretch but just Mutant Cat was taken so I had to call it something. It's quite simple, just click on the link, either above or on the sidebar, show me where in the world you're at, upload a photo of yourself or your dog or whatever and give a shoutout, something like "Yowza, how you all doing there?", or anything you like.

Of course if you're too cool to do that I'll understand.

I changed my mind. Freaked, fannied around a bit, but finally frapped.

The frappr link didn't go anywhere, so I started a Mutant Cat Minions group of my own. (I hope you don't mind...) One of your flickr posts made for the perfect group avatar. (Again, I hope you don't mind...) If any of this is not OK with you let me know and I'll change it.

I just read the last couple of months of your're funny, thoughtful, and at times brutally honest. Thanks for the insight into your world.

That's ok Haydnseek. But the link doesn't work because I changed the name to "Mutant Cat & Friends" which changed the link as well. The working link is on the sidebar.
