Crazy on a Stick Right Side Up!

As I was getting ready for the Calgary Children's Book Fair and Conference tomorrow at Hillhusrt Sunnyside community hall from 10-4 pm, I came across a post on the blog of one of my followers.
I've been playing around with the phrase blog followers - as it's a little too 'don't cry for me argentina' I thought I'd come up with another word, well two words exactly: Blogowers or Followogs. What do you think? What should we call blog followers the blogosphere over?
Australian writer/archaeologist Jade, over at Jade Hears Voices did a review of Dead Frog on the Porch (and I didn't even have to bribe her with vegemite). Jade's blog is hilarious as she talks about her characters, her writing, and her journey toward publication - and her dogs, who doesn't love pets? Oh, yeah, she also reviews middle grade and young adult books. She freely admits to being crazy (that's the first step toward recover Jade) and to celebrate craziness in all its myriad of forms Jade launch a second blog: the Craziness Appreciation Society I'm a blogower of that blog because if anyone knows me, they know that crazy people are strangely drawn to me ... but that's a whole other blog post.
Since Jade is the co-founder of the Craziness Appreciation Society she really appreciated the line in my book that is the title of this blog post: "You're crazy on a stick right side up." That's what protag Cyd says to one of the evil characters in Dead Frog on the Porch. You can read Jade's review of the book here Extra Special Review Dead Frog on the Porch by Jan Markley. Jade has some interesting (alright, I'll say it, crazy) criteria for how she reviews books. They involve things like whether or not she loved it enough to lick the page (too much information) and how well she loved walking in the valley of the commas and the freaky things writers do with semi colons (writers are crazy for punctuation).
Check out her review and her blogs!

Blollowers. It rhymes so nicely with wallowers...

PS: the random word verification for this message was smseses. That's either an overdone pluralification of SMS or what happens when you get yourself in a pickle with too much texting. Either way, I think it should become a word.

Blollowers is good. How about Blogheads? It alludes slightly to Metalheads, which describes my hair most of the time, even when it's not the 80s.

Might bring my twins to Hillhurst today, Jan.

Plus, my blog is live! http://ironicmom.com/

PS. My word verification was bychoebi, which could be a cousin of wasabi.

Mmmm. Like wasabi, but with a nastier, PMSish sort of tang...

My word today is bustie, which was appropriate back when I was nursing my twins, but not so much these days....

(Can you tell I'm procrastinating? I'm blaming it on the sleepover party of 14-year-olds watching "UP" at extreme volume. Sorry Jan, I'll stop using your blog as a forum for work-avoidance now.)
