Top 11 Changes In Store For Nihilist In Golf Pants Now That We’re Playing With The Big Boys

Thanks to a link from our good friend, Hugh Hewitt, the traffic of this blog has gone through the roof. Over the last two days we’ve had more visits than Fraters Libertas and Shot in the Dark combined. I would like to say that success hasn’t changed us, but how could it not? We are now playing with the big boys of the Main Stream Blogosphere (MSB) and thus will have to make some changes befitting our new status. Here are the Top 11 planned changes:

11. So many pop-up ads you’ll think you’re at the Drudge Report.
10. When we deign to link a local blogger we will refer to them, not by blog name or moniker, but by their full name. For example:
Doug Williams exams a box of John Roberts documents and finds nothing much of interest.
9. When we link a fellow MSB blog we will refer to them as our “good friend”:
Our good friend Hugh Hewitt exams a box of John Roberts documents and finds nothing much of interest.
8. When we won’t be blogging for a day or two we’ll give you plenty of advance notice so that you can arrange for a grief counselor.
7. We will consider adding some graphics, but we’re not making any promises.
6. The hated and envied trivia team that dominates Keegan’s Thursday Night Trivia will no longer be known as Fraters Libertas, but as Nihilist in Golf Pants.
5. Watch for our news aggregator: Nihilist in Golf Pants News.
4. The price of Sisyphus thongs has just doubled, no tripled.
3. We will start blogging about Nanotechnology once we figure out what that is.
2. It goes without saying that we will now ignore The Kool-Aid Report.
1. Much more Gravitas.

You are so not ready for MSB status. When you link to a local blogger from now on it's supposed to be "Our reader Doug Williams etc., etc."

Aw, geez! Now you're publicly THANKING a mere COMMENTER?!

You need help. You can make this MSB thing work, but only if you're willing to make a serious commitment! I'm offering my services as a trainer, kind of like Mick in Rocky (but not like him in Rocky II).

The funny thing about a 'lanche like the one you received from Hugh is that any traffic that gets dumped on you tends to rapidly melt away. This will be a good test of the "stickyness" of NIGP. Don't be surprised if you're back to begging for a link from KAR within a day or two. If you can maintain your momentum, I'll be happy to hand out your key to the MSB washroom. Although seeing as how Mitch just got out there, you might want to hold off for a while.

An even funnier thing:

A lot of the traffic that came here from whatever big blog that was that linked to NIGP (I've never heard of the guy before), came to KAR. Imagine my shock when I checked the ole site meter on Sat. afternoon and saw triple the normal saturday traffic.
Some people were coming here, and taken aback in horror, linked over to us. Where they were further taken aback in horror.
