Me-Me's Neighborhood No. 2

Last week you were introduced to my new feature called, Me-Me's Neighborhood. Think of it as a neighborhood party. You know most everyone, but there are still a few neighbors you haven't had the pleasure of meeting just yet. Who knows, you might be surprised by a common interest you share plus it's always nice to make new friends. All I ask is that you welcome them to the neighborhood by visiting and leaving a little note to let them know you stopped by.

Ohhhhh, who are the people in your neighborhood?

Remember when you first started blogging and how excited you were when the first couple of people sent you a friend request via BlogCatalog? Then their faces appeared on your followers widget? As a newbie, you are elated that someone out there actually likes what you are doing, you feel validated. For me, these are the people I remember vividly.

Well, today's featured neighbor has been stalking me from the very beginning. I'd like to introduce you all to RedRaider (aka Don) over at Beyond Left Field. Not only has Don been there since I entered the blogosphere, but he was also the first to ever review my blog in his feature, a pimp post for discerning taste, The Sunday Suck-Up Times. After reading his glowing review of The Screaming Me-Me, I was thrilled. I knew then I had arrived!

Beyond Left Field is a southern man's daily rant. Don's sardonic humor and writing style truly draw the reader in. Believe you me, he holds nothing back. It's raw, it's engaging and downright funny. Being from the south myself, visiting with Don each day is like a big dose of down home. I totally relate and I'm sure you will too.

When you visit Beyond Left Field today you'll notice his motto, "I only do that which I do best which is why I do very little." Don't you believe it. Don also wears the hat of administrator over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com and has been my knight in shining armor a couple of times when I've gotten into technical trouble. Ah, I found his soft spot, the southern gentleman emerges when there's a damsel in distress.

I'm know many of you already follow Don, but for those of you who have never visited, please click on over and give him a great big howdy!

  1. I know what you mean about being pleased when a new comment or follower appears on your blog. I'm a newbie and I really appreciate it when someone stops by and takes time to read what I've written and tell me what they think.

  3. I wholeheartedly agree with Kate. I'm not really a newbie, per se, as I've been doing it (blogging) off and on for a couple years now. I've visited Don's website before and found it to be a cool and fun site. Quite humorous, too. I just wish I had more time to go online and do more blog visiting. I'm determined to do more of that despite the time it takes caring and running errands for a father with dementia, spending any kind of time with the wife and working out to lower my horrific blood sugar count. Anyway, back to your topic- I will revisit Don's site again ASAP.

  5. Don's gotten me out of a few kinks as well. Does that make him kinky? Or me? Or both of us? And you too?

  16. Don is a great blogger but don't let him fool you, he is a big softy, even though he scares me sometimes. I often read his stuff and all I can think is:

    He did not just say that!

    he did and he does.

  19. I like Don's site and it makes it better is that he actually scares me, he looks like a tough blogger. We need more of them. Great site and thanks for HumorBloggers
