Maggsbunny

Blogging Bunny-style

Bunny Rulz, okay?

I’m having such a good time playing around on my blog! I decided to get off my lazy-bones ass (figuritively speaking, of course, my ass is still nailed to the computer-chair) and jazz up my site. Get a handle on them thar widgets, etc.

I admired my SIL Melany‘s ClustrMap that she has on her blog, that shows whereabouts in the world her visitors hail from. I decided to get my own, and it was surprisingly user-friendly. And so I got my first widget. (If I’d known it was that easy, I would have done it long ago).

But it wasn’t enough. I got a bit of gold fever (or should I say widget fever) and got a nifty little one that shows the national flag of your various visitors. How cool. I have readers from Canada, the Philippines, Italy, Australia and the US. Who’d have thought. And that’s only since I put it up yesterday.

So yes, I’m having a grand old time.

I like having a look at my stats on wordpress every now and then. When I went on there this morning, I looked through the list of referrers (People clicked links from these pages to get to your blog). One of them was the following: blogged.com/blogs/maggsbunny.html  I duly followed the link, and landed on the website of Blogged. From what I can gather, it is a sort of directory of blogs, some of which have been rated by the editors. And there was Maggsbunny. Not only that, but with a rating of 7.9. (very good) My word. And an invitation to put the badge on my site. And because I now know how to put widgets on, I immediately did just that.

Blogging just got a whole lot funner.

Stop laughing at me, all you ‘old blogging hands’. It used to be enough for me just to write my (sometimes mixed-up) thoughts out and send them hurtling into cyberspace. But this is cool, taking it to the next level.

You know what? I am the only maggsbunny on the net. I know, I googled myself.

And that was no accident.

I was getting so tired of trying to find a unique user-name whenever I registered  somewhere online.

I’d type in Maggie. This user-name already exists, pick another one.

So I tried Maggs and Margaret (the name on my birth certificate) but to no avail. There are hundreds of us out there. Thousands.

Then a person ends up having to put a meaningless number behind your name, which you inevitably forget when you want to log in a-bloody-gain.

So eventually, I came up with maggsbunny, my nom de plume on the internet. I thought it had a nice ring to it, kinda like bugsbunny.

My mom thought it sounded like a porn star. (I think that was a leap from Playboy Bunny.)

I don’t care though, I like it.

Maybe I’ll make this my new avitar…

Playboy Bunny Posters

Hah!

Actually, while I was doing a search for the Playboy logo, I came upon a very cute site that offered  very cute glittery playboy widgets and, well, I couldn’t resist. So that is what the pink, glittery maggsbunny is doing on my side-bar.

I wonder how long this phase is going to last?  lol.
