I'll be darned...

As it turns out, the Blogger Team at Google maintains a blog called Blogs of Note. I know this, because my humble tome made the list for October 1st. Since I find it somewhat doubtful that my blog is, by any stretch of the imagination, noteworthy, I'm reasonably certain that there has been some mistake. In all likelihood, some Google employee is on probation as a result of this oversight.

The upside, for me, is that my readership has doubled! That's right, I now have two readers! Who'd a thunk?

This does, of course, create some performance anxiety, as I clearly have some high standards to live up to. I will do my best to live up to expectations.

That's awesome, BR!

I for one love reading about your adventures, and not just because your buddy packs with an OTTB.

Congrats!

I was involved with horses last summer and I loved them! That;s why I liked your blog! Keep on blogging!

It's always a surprise, especially when you toil away without spending a lot of effort on trying to push the numbers. But quality will out, as someone might have said!

Bag Blog said...

What is even crazier is that my sitemeter shows several people coming to my blog from your blog - people from other countries!

Kate said...

Congratulations. Your blog is great fun. I show Quarter Horses and write a little about them (among other things) on my blog. Enjoy the honor!

Oh, so that's where my new russian follower came from!
You're blog is great. People love buckskins, although , sometimes I get people looking for the "other" kind of buckskins at my blog!(not colored horses, if ya know what I mean);-o

Gotta laugh about it!!

I like your writting and your blog. Well done for making it to Blogs of Note. Blessings to you and your family, always.

Andy said...

Dave, let's just be honest here. Your blog sucks. You know it...we all know it.

Nyuk!

Hey man, congrats! That's some serious good news...I'm iz proud for ya'! You really do have a special style...you just don't post enough, but some monors like me post too much. Once again, I am honored and humiliated to be one of the few, the proud, yada yada yada...

Andy said...

Way to go BR! You deserve every bit of it. It's a little boost to everyone in your blogroll, too, so thanks for that!

Wickzki said...

Congrats on the blogger of the day status. :)

I found your journal through it. Very nice one. You deserve it! :)

Kate said...

Congratulations - I think you deserve it!

Prathm Wanaaray said...

yes!!
congrats man...your adeventures are worth giving it a read!!!

Buck said...

Oh yeah... what all above me say! So very, very cool to make "the list," eh?

Andy said...

Buck, don't humor him. He might start posting more, and then we'll really be screwed, because he'll become a blog junkie, just interested in indoor thangs, instead of the rugged cowboy type that only occasionally shares just how good his life is compared to the rest of us.

Just sayin'...

Rainbow said...

give yourself some credit xx :)

Buckskins Rule said...

Thanks everyone!

Andy, don't worry, I'll keep the cowboy thing up just so I can remind you how much more exciting my life is than yours!

Just kidding, of course! I don't consider my life to be any better, or more important than any other persons. We all have our different interests and perspectives. I think these blogs are what bring us together and allow us to share our lives and thoughts we people we might otherwise never know.

Andy said...

BR: AMEN! It's an odd world in which we live. So disconnected, yet so connected with kindred hearts/spirits/whatever due to technology, etc.

I guess it's like anything else...it's what you make of it.

Man, I'm proud of The Globber. They finally got something right...

D. Leigh said...

Congratulations! I, for one, have found your blog to be awesome! Thank you for spending the time to allow us to get to know you .....
