November Referrer Madness

I’ve been doing this monthly list of The Top 20 Sites From Which Nice People Came To Look At The Monkey In The Window™ for almost a year. But who the heck are these people? Why do they link to me? Are we all of one hive mind? Do we all worship the same geek gods? Is there some secret handshake that’s only known to the Bloguminati involved here?

Actually, International Law has banned those listed here from ever getting together in one place. That much dork matter in one spot could kill us all.

To find out who’s who, I thought I’d get you to play a little game (and rip off pixeldiva). Rather than just spewing out links, I’ll give you three facts from each site’s “About Me” section… only one of them will be a lie. It’s up to you to spot the falsehood.

  1. Bill says:

    Hey! I’m a geek, not a dork! Though I must admit that those first two links are to truly dorky posts. But the third one was geeky, damnit!

  2. Busy Mom says:

    I’m “movin’ on up”…

  3. Scott says:

    Hmm. I need to regain the lead overall. That Kane lad needs to be brought low!

  4. Les says:

    Dammit, I slipped down a few notches. Then again, I think my readership is down overall as I haven’t really ranted about anything significant in awhile. That’s what I get for trying to include more personal entries instead of foaming at the mouth diatribes on politics or religion. Maybe I’m just losing my touch.

    The sad part about your three “facts” on Natalie is that after reading her blog for awhile it’d be easy to believe all of them.

  5. MJ says:

    Wait just a minute here – All three of those are true about me! Smoove. Heh.

  6. mel says:

    this was #$@%in’ fun!

  7. Speaker says:

    GEEZ! I click on my blogrll link to Solly Green here like a millino times a day and i STILL don’t get on teh fscking list! what’s a geek to do!?

  8. Lisa says:

    Woo! I’m back on the list! 🙂

  9. Linkmeister says:

    Damn. I had to go re-read my bio to see which one was false.

  10. Brian Peace says:

    All right, you’re going to H-E-Double Hockey Sticks for that one.

  11. Les says:

    Speaker, if you’re desperate I suggest dropping a kickback into the snail mail system addressed to Sol and see if that doesn’t get you a mention. Where patronage fails, money usually succeeds. Ask anyone in Congress.

  12. Buzz says:

    Way cool, Sol! You are truly a piece of work. It’s just a shame that I am going to have to destroy you. Hehe.

  13. robyn says:

    Man, those Sooners really suck this year! They’ll be lucky to go to the Toilet Bowl!
