4/5: The Weblog Review's rating

I have a bit of a masochistic streak. How else can I explain my submission of this blog to several review sites? After the ego-bruising evaluation I got from So Many Blogs, So Little Time a few months ago, I underwent a bit of nail-biting and lip-chewing before I clicked on a link in an email I got in my inbox a few days ago, notifying me that my blog had been reviewed. I had submitted my site to The Weblog Review a few months back if I'm not mistaken, and I'd forgotten about it.

But a few seconds after I finally clicked on the link in the email, my lip-chewing stopped and I found myself smiling in appreciation. It was a favorable evaluation. You can read it here.They actually explore further back than just a blog's first page before they write their assessment. Their reviews make sense, are well written (gramatically and more), and easy to read. Thank you to reviewer Wendy and to The Weblog Review. May you and your kind shine and prosper.

And thank you to many of my blogger pals out there. I go green with envy at the stuff you guys come up with and how you express them. Thanks for sharing parts of yourselves: educating, entertaining and inspiring others.

Anyone up for a beer? I'm treating. Licks and gropes are up for grabs too. :-D

I enjoyed reading the review and they did a nice job...Then I clicked submit to get The Couch reviewed and found i needed to register...OK, I did that...then I find out that there are no spots open for free reviews, so I have to pay $5...but that does not guarantee a review for a while...now for another $2 I get reviewed in 2 days... That is when I closed the window...sheesh

I didn't pay anything, Bond. If you want to "fast-track" your review, then I guess you pay for it. I didn't; I just submitted my site. Took a while for the review to come out, that's why the whole thing slipped my mind. I have no complaints, though. They did a very fair review -- went through the site, not just the latest posts.

I've never seen a decent review site. Now that I know this one charges money, I will forever be ignorant.

I just came for the beer and the licks and the gropes...

Lizza said...

They don't make you pay! You don't have to if you don't want to.

Cheers. And licks and gropes, Scotty.

Photo Cache said...

did anybody mention beer? i'm in. hey lizza, your tops on my list.

Lizza said...

Beer, beer, beer, Photo!

And thanks. :-)

Kiyotoe said...

Last time I followed your lead I got a pleasant review from those catty chicks at some review site. Maybe I shouldn't push my luck.

Did someone say licks and gropes?
DEFINITELY count me in...

Jello shots!!! =)

Game!!! =)

Mr R Rabbit said...

I'll take a couple of gropes, maybe a lick.

Congratulations on your review.

Christy said...

Yay, it's always great when you know people like what you write. Congrats!

ian said...

I'm standing in line right behind The Dragon for licks and gropes. Yeah, sloppy seconds, but a fellow could do worse than to follow him. :D

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I wish that she had mentioned your sense of humour Lizza. You are a lovely mixture of the straight and funny man ....... well obviously not a man, what with the perkiness and all and the way you are THROWING yourself at Penfold ........ although I suppose you could be a bloke ... it's a very confusing world for us old uns...... although, as you know, I'm an honorary lesbian.

Terra Shield said...

It was a nice review... Congratulations :)

Lizza said...

Kiyotoe: No one can say anything bad about your blog. You're too cool.

HB: Our poor livers!

Mr Rabbit: No, no, you guys got it all wrong. I'm the one who's doing the groping and the licking.

Christy: Yay indeed. Thanks!

Ian: I'd stand after him too, except in this case.

DaddyP: I do not throw myself after Penfold! I just bat my eyelashes prettily at him. I'm glad Paula made you an honorary lesbian; adds another dimension to your already crazy (but in a good way) persona.

Terra: Thanks. It was nice indeed.

Bond said...

Lizza: As of yesterday there are no more spots available for free reviews...I guess you have to keep checking back until they have a spot open, or you pay...

Suzee Wong said...

It is apparent Wendy took the time to really get to KNOW your blog - that is evident from her review. Very nice, Lizza! Congrats!

P.S. Been traveling like crazy. Still need to find time to catch up on the life of Lizza.

~*SilverNeurotic*~ said...

Congrats on the review.

If you get a chance, stop by my blog...need some input on a project I'm undertaking.

Matt-Man said...

The reviewers dont know it, but your blog is so good that I always read it in the nude. Cheers Lizza!!

Burton said...

Up for a beer? Am I Irish? (answer to that is yes... and German, and English, and other ale loving nationalities!)

Hey Lizza, no surprise that your blog had good reviews. I've always been a fan.

Sorry for the "long time, no comment" on my end. Just wrapped another show and finally able to breathe and catch up with old pals.

Hope all is well on your side of the planet. It's Fall here and the leaves are turning. The air is crisp. Just right for a cold beer. ;) Later.

Lizza said...

Bond: I don't remember whether there were any free slots when I submitted. Hmmm...

Deb: So glad you're back, though it might be temporary. I'm happy for you, dear.

Suzee: You're like a whirlwind. So good to see you here again.

Silverneurotic: Thanks, and will do!

Matt: That is such a cool way to read blogs. I should try that when I go over to yours.

Burton: So glad to see one of my favorite writers again. Sounds like a lovely season; I'll head off to your site for an update.

H said...

Lizza darling! So this is a rather nicely balanced review. I like this wendy woman. in fact, after reading her review, I decided to forgive her for getting your name wrong.

YAY!

I don't drink bear, but I'll have a voddy.
HUGS!
