Why?

Because I'm a blogger organizer, it's like herding cats! I've created Kansas City Blogger blog so that others in the area can find us. Not so much as a blog but place where there is a list of local bloggers. I will add them as I find them. If you want to get on , or off the list email me. I can't find them all, I can't read them all.

I like it!

Nice job!

I think you have everyone!

Kristine said...

Very awesome, Miss Moneypenny. :)

"The D" said...

Why was I not informed of such shenanigans?

More importantly why didn't I think of this?

(punching self in face)

Spyder said...

Thanks y'all!

Tony said...

Awesome!!! Where do we go to get a link? I already linked this puppy up on my blog.

Spyder said...

Tony- I'll link you. And don't forget you asked me. I didn't ask you. I think you can be witty & entertaining without being an ass. Prove me wrong & I'm pulling your link! No more of the white elitist shit. I don't find it humorous. I'm not asking you to remove your girlie photos & quit being a sexist perv.

Tony said...

Small detail Spyder . . . Are we talking about just in reference to this blog and this particular cadre of bloggers or all of my blog content.

Just wondering. Also, I wanted to thank you twice for linking me!!! You're very nice.

One last thing . . . As an amateur journo, I'd like to know the official plan for the blog? The mission statement if you will. Not a rush, and I'm more than willing to wait and see. I remember the old KC Bloggers had guest posts and was a bit of a group blog until the moderator started deleting posts that were deemed offensive. Still, it was a good start.

I think you have a good start here and I'm having a great time checking out some of those links that I wasn't even aware of . . .

So, what I've gathered is that Nightmare is making the banner. You've done an awesome job in compiling links . . . And now we wait to check out the content. I'm excited to see the "army of Davids" organizing and I just wonder if it'll be a community project, under on single strong leader (like Spyder) or comprised of a council of leaders.

Just wondering and just wanted to note that this is a good idea once again.

Spyder said...

Tony- Excuse my ignorance. I grew up in Canada & english is my second language. What does "army of Davids" mean?

Nightmare is to be working on a logo. Maybe like the Greg Beck sticker he did many of us have on our vehicles.

LOL! You thanked me twice & I had you linked twice. So I've already removed you once...

Official plan/mission statement is to have a list of as many local bloggers as possible. The community project is people telling me about blogs they have found, and their own for me to link in the list. Beyond that I haven't decided. No guest spots, no debates....

Donna said...

Good job. I linked to it on my blog. Thanks for including me... I'm not IN KC, but I'm only 30 miles away!

Donna said...

Here's a good KC blog. And she gives sex toy parties.

Average Jane said...

Nice job!

Chimpo said...

Can you fix my link to just be chimpotle.com?

Faith said...

Happy day. This is a good idea.

D, save some face for the rest of us! I haven't seen you in too long, and I might need a face t punch by the time I get to again!

I'm sure this is another place that meet-up notifications will be posted as well, right Spyder? So maybe you can count on that kind of content, Tony. Not that it makes a difference to you, except for giving you the opportunity to mock us elitist white bloggers for getting together in person now and again.

Amanda said...

Thanks for the link, Spyder. Great idea!

DLC said...

Nobody ever invites me to join blogger communities...snif.

Dan Regan said...

And by that I mean, please add me to your list. If I was being too subtle.

Keith Sader said...

Wait, is this the place for elitist, racist assholes? If not, do you know where I can find them?

sarcasm-off

Xavier Onassis said...

With all of the blogs popping up like Morels, I think you've created a monster for yourself, Spyder.

What's the old saying...be careful what you wish for?

Spyder said...

XO- Thanks!

Kristine- I miss you!

the D- I didn't tell anyone so don't get your knickers in a twist. Why you didn't think of this? I'm older & smarter! LOL

Tony - You're welcome. I talked enough with you already.

Donna - Hell I'm not in KC either but we are close so I'm counting us. "sex toy parties" Donna! I'm shocked! LOL!

Smed- tonight!

dlc- You're going to make me stay up late again tonight!

May- Will do!

Dan regan- You are very welcome to join the party. Tonight!

Moxie - I have it in spades (moxie that is, just ask the hubby!)

James- Aaaaaa Ok? I hope "mein freund" means my friend. You start calling me names & I may have you put you on notice like Tony. At least he won't feel like I'm picking on him only. LOL

Keith- nooo this is the place for liberals ( shhhhh don't tell Faith)


I can see that I will be busy tonight & many more nights. I will be stopping by your blogs & checking out your local links.

Shane said...

Now, what we need to do is find a web developer who can use that fancy RSS thing to feed the site.

Spyder said...

Shane- aaaaa what? Someone will have to help me with that.

Spyder said...

Woowooo! I rawck! I think I got the RSS feed on there now. I'm becoming more geeky as the days go by.

Shicho said...

cool breeze, spyder...

Well Hell Michelle said...

I tried to read http://blogthatmommy.blogspot.com/, but it locked up both computers I tried it on :(

Spyder said...

Michelle- Do I have her listed?

Ariel said...

Spyder, great idea and about time someone made a list. Thanks! Up until now, exploring local blogs was kind of hit or miss.

Spyder said...

Shicho & Ariel- Thanks!

Michelle- I got her added.

Blue Blog said...

Nice idea. Can we be linked on your blog?

Warning: It could make every Republican in Missouri hate you though. It's all Blue Girls fault though.

Spyder said...

Pensive- That would be great. Watch here or my personal blog for when & where.

Blue- You're on now!

Lisa said...

I live just south of Kansas City. This is a wonderful idea and I too, am wondering why I didnt think of it.

Sara K. said...

Unfortunately my time in Kansas City has come to an end. You can remove Chapters of Sara K. from your KC blog roll. Thanks!
