Eeek! California!

Some of you bloggers are so judgmental of California, it's kinda funny. Others are so warm and welcoming, thank you.

I'm going to post some California links mostly for the bloggers I've found here in California. For those of you who might just be too leery of us weirdos, go away, heh,heh,heh

There are others I've run into in CA, but they have chosen not to visit my blog regularly for whatever reason and are not on my watched list. Maybe you other CA bloggers have found other bloggers not on my list, if so, please feel free to add to the list.

I am a generally lazy, unambitious person, but I do have good coordinating skills. If there is general interest in a CA meet-and-greet, give me a high sign.

Likewise from any CA-tolerant bloggers from out-of-state or out-of-country. I could rise to the occasion to organize such a heated affair.

Otherwise, I'm just providing links I'm aware of so that CA bloggers know who is out there...

Update: I have run into a bug that I've reported to A.F.F. before. The bug does not allow me to use the insert function and currently is not allowing me to insert photos of PANTHEIST and DEEEPPENETRAYR.

The bug is also not allowing me to add another CA blogger in Newport Beach__phantom__

I'll see if I can get this sorted out and try another edit later.

We are weird, aren't we?? You'd think we were a bunch of potheads.

In Santa Barbara are Bipolybabe and Gerson, although he has been silent for a month and will be relocating soon....

I've noticed that a lot of the "random" traffic I get is guys who show up once and never come back, all from Orange County.....all of them younger (duh...). Well, it's not like they're my target audience....

Who's weird?

Did you know that you can click on "local" at the top of the blogs page and get the stats for your county or your state?

Hi... I'm in San Francisco... and I have only been blogging for a few days... but I am beginning to sense an East Coast, West Coast thing... And a whole underground world of bloggers and blogger communities... Is this just my imagination!?!? If its not my imagination then i think it is ironic that a site intended to voice your thoughts and opinions would conform to traditional bickering and bantering... I am fascinated and curious?!? Any ideas???

As a Vermonter, I actually like coming to California...It's so refreshing to see diversity actually work...and, it doesn't work in Vermont at all....You folks have the most interesting culture in the country, or at least in my opinion you do....but, I still like living in the woods where I get go hug a tree daily. *grin*

Poeple sure do love to bag on Californians. I used to live in Seattle & Portland, OR. It's a favorite passtime in those places. Now I work in the oilfields in the Rockies and the Texans get it here. Ever seen a Texan drive in snow? Pay no attention, that stuff is all just silly.

Yes I am a real Nor-Cal girl. Born and raised.
Actually my home home base is about a 7 hour drive from you Honni, either here or there. I have family in Humboldt. I was actually in Prague in July thos year for the first time since 1997, Damn! That place has changed.
The sexiest word in human language is the czech word for the number four.
This past month 2 generations of my family picked up and left California because they couldn't afford to make grandma's house bigger. Goodbye Greyhound rock, hello Oregon Country Fair.
All my life the oregonians were complaining about us moving up.
It's finally true.

Thanks silkditty

I have wanted to visit your blog for some time now. Honestly, I don’t know why people look down their nose at us Californians, but interestingly I have been amazed how California is the most populous state in the Union and how few of us Californians are into blogging on this site. That’s rather disheartening. By the way, my friend
is also a Californian. As far as the bug in the system is concerned it may have to do to the number of underlines on either site of my handle which are four separate underline characters like this ____Phantom____. With four on each side otherwise it won’t work.

Thanks for thinking of me and thank you for this post. I enjoy knowing who the local bloggers are.

Never mind about what I said about the bug Silkditty

I guess there is a bug in the system. Solar’s photo icon didn’t come out, but it should have had.

My apologize.
