Wooo Hooo! Diogenes Middle Finger Turns 4


This weekend marks the start of the fifth year of Diogenes' Middle Finger/Middle Finger News Service. I can once again say it's been our best year yet. Keeping a blog up and running and interesting isn't an easy thing to do while running a business, traveling and maintaining a social life. But there are people, who, along the way have played a large part in helping it's success. And as stated in an earlier post, I would like to gratefully acknowledge their part.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank Big Fur Hat@iOwnThe World and Doug Ross@Doug Ross Journal, who early on recognized the faux genius of DMF.  Big Fur gave this girl her first exposure at the big boy's table known to us all as iOwnTheWorld, along with a piece of advise I wisely took to heart, and Doug Ross for awarding me my first year for efforts as a 'stumbling in the dark' new blogger, which sent me on my way with much encouragement. 

And I must Gratefully Thank Cardigan, and all the gang at iOwnTheWorld for the generous and frequent linkage and comments at the best site anywhere on the interwebs. 

I would truly be remiss if I didn't acknowledge a Very Special Friend, Comrade and Collaborator, Middle Finger News Ace Correspondent, the incomparable Earl of Taint

Earl's unique wit, artistic skills and timely incite into current affairs have brought an extra element of humor to this site I had not conceived. Our on-the-fly, 3 part MFNS report 'The Obama Girls Do Africa' remains second only to 'This is your Life: Barack Obama'  as the most viewed post ever at DMF, with at last glance over 64,000 hits. 

Earl, you ARE the BEST!

To all who come by for the serious stuff, the snark and satire or just to lurk, and to those brave enough to regularly leave comments, namely Odie, MadJack, Grunt, Eugene, Tiger Rag and Broadside Betty, as well as my newly acquired readers at Michelle's Mirror (ya'll don't be shy now, I don't bite) and my fan in the Vatican who comes by to check out the Good Monday Morning post, I Thank You all Very Much for your visits. You all make this endeavorer well worth the time and effort.

Cake and Ice cream for everybody!


 




and from Earl

  1. Boo-Yah! Happy Anniversary, Kid! You have the freshest pirate voice and the sharpest wit in the conservative yakosphere, and that's a rough crowd to compete with. ;) We will give you a proper toast tonight, but for now, here's to another year of plausible employability, brave handling of all the IRS audits and stayin' outta Gitmo! :D

    1. Whoa. A bottle of that Bowmore 57 sold for 160 grand about 18 months ago... http://www.bowmore.com/news/bowmore-1957-bottle-no1-sells/

      She's worth it.

  10. Jan I wish you a Most Happy Birthday! Although I didn't post at first I have followed you religiously since the beginning. Your artwork and writings are top notch and beyond First Class. And besides that it is very easy to follow a beautiful conservative girl any where. :-) I wish you all the best.

  12. Congratulations! Four years is impressive! Some days blogging is like beating your head against a brick wall and other days, it's like being a brick wall and being beaten! We like having you around, so stick it out for at least another four...teen!

    1. Thank You ,Proof. I know what you mean about the brick wall.
      I said from the start I was going to give my readers something other than what they already read on 10 other site they visited before coming here. And sometime it doesn't come, and sometime flows forth like a fountain.

  13. Congrats, darlin. And speaking of flowing like a fountain...I still have that bottle of Scotch. ;)

  14. Happy Anniversary and Congratulations! This site IS interesting and different. It's always entertaining and never fails to elicit a smile or a belly laugh. It's your perspective, Lady Sarcastica, that makes otherwise unwelcome news humorous and palatable. Please keep it up and thank you for sharing your wit!
    (Now I just wanna figger out how my computer id gets routed thru the Vatican!) See, that's another thing you do so very well - bring a bright and happy perspective to that most dismal of working days. Charm, mystery and eyerolls. You do it all so well!:)
