Top linkers this week:

  1. Rick’s Rants, the only linker with more than 5 this week – Rick made eight the hard way, in a week where nobody else had more than four. Some people like Tweets and Facebook shares, but I for one care nothing for them. I say, there is nothing on God’s gray earth so exalted as that prince of internet acknowledgements, the link!

Thanks to everyone for their links. Deadline for next week’s FMJRA is Friday, January 11.

    When you link you show you care.

    Regarding your tweets re: Ace of Spades, learning French, and high-beams:

    Technically he’s describing what a college friend of mine would call ‘bliptits’. It’s not truly flashing the high beams if they’re still covered.

    I haven’t been blogging due to health junk, but my 2nd annual awards post is up and TOM are big winners!
    Congratulations, Stacy, Smitty, and Wombat!

    Wombat, what do you mean “The hard way”? I noticed you had mentioned that twice and could not wrap my brain around it.

    You actually have to put all your links together in e-mail and send them in, which takes more effort than just letting WordPress rack them up for you.

    Thank you! Here’s hoping and praying you get better soon!

    Think you got the wrong comment thread, bubba.

    Wombat’s way is the only way to make sure all of your links to TOM are counted. WordPress screwed-up their trackbacking system about a year or two ago and have never debugged it.

    Actually, Finrod’s reacting to my Tweets this morning about Ace’s post, which preceded the long post on the topic by several hours.
