Seems there was at least one blog that was linking to me only to have me, cruelly and heartlessly, fail to link in return. This has been remedied.
It’s foofery. You should know how this works by now. If you don’t, here are the destructions:
– If you link to me and I haven’t linked back and you’re not an online-prescription/pr0n-spam site, whap me over the head in the comments or something and it shall be fixed.
Um, that’s it really. Here, have the requisite cute baby animal picture, since those are 99% of my damn traffic.
A little while back I wrote about Flattr, and if you visit the site itself rather than just consuming my RSS feed (for which I still love you dearly and would pay you if I had the means, lovely lovely people) you’ll see the green and orange Flattr button on the right sidebar. (Over thar! —>)
I apparently now have the ultimate cosmic power of inviting other people, currently 3, so if you’re interested please let me know.
In the interests of full disclosure I believe I’ve Flattr’d out a little under 2 euros and received *ahem* not quite half a euro back in the last however long it’s been. Thanks Ark, I know it was you! But filthy lucre aside, I still like the basic principle of Flattr and am quite happy to be able to support it; that it doesn’t support me in the style to which I would like to become accustomed isn’t a requirement or, really, much of a surprise. I’m not big into self-promotion, especially not of a blog that’s really not much more than my stream-of-consciousness MMO ramblings.
See how good I am at sales pitches?
Anyway, if you’d like to get involved and haven’t managed to wangle a Flattr beta invite (I did, so it can’t be that difficult), post below. By the magic of the intarweb commenting tubes I’ll have your email anyway.
Oh and PS — I’ve been so lax about posting in the last few weeks that I’m going to try to post every. single. day!! in July. Except weekends. And holidays. And Alpha Centauran religious observation days. Ah come on, none of you read blogs on the weekends anyway.

It’s been a while.
To those who were actually visiting the site yesterday while I was madly fiddling with themes and widgets, my apologies.
Anyway, I finally picked a new theme (about time after almost 2 years) and added a couple of pages — the EQ2 Crafting page so that those who need to can find guide without having to do a search, and the Blogroll page because… well, because. I may remove that one.
I also finally got round to updating the sidebar Blogroll, even if it does still have more than 100 links in it. I removed a bunch of defunct blogs and, in a sudden fit of bitchiness, I also removed a bunch of blogs that can’t be arsed to reciprocate links. Some of them are people I know and count as friends (or at least acquaintances), which irks me, though I suspect in most cases it’s oversight and not having a round tuit.
Either way, if you’re not on the blogroll and would like to be, let me know. But if you’re just going to suck down my linkage and never reciprocate, I have a big What-EVER for you. Seriously. A little two-way courtesy isn’t that hard even in this day and age.
Now you kids get off my damn lawn!
I haven’t done this in a while, so: if you’ve linked to me and I haven’t linked to you, it’s because I’m a snotty bitch and too good for you. However, if you comment and let me know, I’ll turn loose my less-eviller twin and add you to my (long, but discerning) blogroll.
One of these days I may even go through said roll to weed out the blogs that are truly defunct — though I do hear that WAR(hammer Online) blogging is undergoing something of a renaissance these days. You go, WAR bloggers!

It’s the usual: if you’ve got a link to me on your site, you’re a star. If I’m not reciprocating, it’s not because I’m a spiky byotch but most likely because I didn’t notice. Let me know in the comments here and it shall be remedied.
If you’re on my blogroll and I’m not on yours, chances are you’ll be purged after a few months unless you’re really really interesting or funny or famous or something. Why yes, in this case I am being a spiky byotch and there’s no excuse! Obliviousness only works for me!
Seriously though, one of these days I’ll find a way to make that ridiculously long blogroll a little easier to navigate. Damned if I’ve figured out how in 6 months of thinking about it though — at least, I haven’t come up with a method that requires a lot more maintenance from me than I’m willing to put in.
