    What an unusual blog to link me 🙂 I’m flattered though, thank you muchly. That whole Freshly Pressed thing is such a strange thing to have happened to my little corner of the blogsphere.

    Warm thoughts,

      Just between you and me, Freshly Pressed is where I find a lot of quality blog content!

      I have had a few of my posts go viral, but none have ever turned up there. 🙁

        It may still yet. My blog was not a hugely popular one before that post at all. And it floored me when they picked it. I think it was just because my subject was in relation with a NEDA’s week of awareness.

        I’m not sure how the heck they pick them. Sometimes it seems so off-the-wall.

          Fuzzy logic, perhaps. My blog runs a lot of things that rely on it.

    Thank you so much for your support! 🙂 Cult of Individualism was what propelled me onto Freshly Pressed.

    I nominate Nun Cake. This funny post explains why skinnyuz2b became an art major instead of a nun.
