Spiders On Drugs

When I first started blogging, expectations were low, they were so feckin' low that there were none. Just like there were no followers.  Those were my wild west days, I did what I wanted, when I wanted.  If I found something funny on Youtube at 2:00 a.m. I'd slam it up here hit publish then go to bed with a smile on my face.

So in that spirit, I'd like to present "Spiders on Drugs"



That was feckin' funny now wasn't it?

Eventually I followed people. First came those wacky bastards at A Beer For The Shower and after that came Angry. I homed in on the big Irishman like a migrating pigeon looking for home and have been pecking away at him ever since (he's out of town today and won't read this haha).

Since then I've had the privilege of meeting some terrific people like MatthewDezPatBerserculesD4Ray and "L" .  This is the core group of people that I really write for because we've followed each other consistently for months now and I feel as if I've come to know them as people.  I really hope none of you become the crack spiders bitch because that would just be sad.

And now, I'm off to the Land of Nod.

  1. I think we all find a core group of followers we become really attached to. I know I still miss some of the ones that were there in the beginning for me and have now moved on to other things.

    1. No sour grapes here. This blog is a place to have fun and celebrate being alive. They're spiders, get over it, pull the stick out of your arse and have a laugh.

  5. Okay I laughed pretty damn hard at that video. I have a core group of people I write for too but most of them don't blog anymore. Am I that old?

  7. I agree so much with the core group of followers Anne. I'm pretty much the same and that was my motivation behind making that special bloggers list thingy. I love the video too haha, spiders on drugs is amazing looking! I kind of reached my peak for blog viewers in October as I started off just looking to make a bit of spare money of AdSense and would go to all kinds of efforts to try to generate readers and hence revenue.

    Now I barely make a penny of AdSense yet I'm much happier because now I have my core group of readers I don't want anything like that any more. Still might have been cool to have had no obligations to post when having zero followers though.

    1. The only reason I have Adsense is because with it, Lord Google needs me more that I need him. As long as he can put his ads on my page he won't mess with me. Better to keep the enemy close at hand I always say.

      It's you guys that matter to me. I'm not looking for a big following because I'd never get to know people that way. And that's the best part of blogging for me now.

  8. It seems the blogging world is very incestuous. Meaning we find a circle of blogs with like-minded interests, I follow this person who follows that person who follows that person who follows me. I'm glad I got a chance to find your blog...and is it okay if I already started out as a cracked out spider?

    1. In this case incest is best. People come and go from blogger, but if we keep that main circle intact we can all ride out the lean times together. In this crowd being a cracked out spider is an advantage!!

  9. Yeah I had no idea it would turn into what it has when I started but having a circle one enjoys going around to is great. And the crack spider will never get me, the cat will chow down on the drug infested thing before it has a chance..haha

  10. That's a great little video. I hadn't seen that before. It's so true about having a circle of followers and blogs to follow.

    1. You gamers do a good job of supporting one another and I know a lot of you guys get together in real life as well. I bet that part is really fun.

  11. My head is spinning! (Like the webs hehehe) I am completely and utterly repulsed by watching spiders, my one and only irrational fear (aaahhhh!), I am laughing from the humor of the video (so true) and I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy inside by being called terrific and being a part of your "core" because I feel the same about you. You're one awesome lady!!

    1. I'm so glad I met you on here L. You've done me a world of good! You've given me the courage to post honest, true things about myself that I never would have done before.

  12. I wasn't expecting that from that video! That was great!

    And its funny how you mention your circle of bloggers. I have a post very much related to this all written up and will post tomorrow.

    1. I know it starts out all serious and then comes the marijuana spider building a hammock and the crack spider popping a cap on the other spider and it's hysterical.

      I'm looking forward to your post tomorrow then.

  13. Aw I'm touched. And I know the feeling. Posts start getting better when there's a consistent group. I started.. really terrible actually. I'm not very proud of my first months.

    1. You guys had to put up with my early posts and put up with me as I learned to get my "blogging legs" under me. I'll never know how you guys did it, but I sure appreciate it. I learned by watching you guys be professional about it as well.

    1. I'm sneaking this one under the radar without him knowing about it!! It's a dangerous thing to say nice things to an Irishman, it gives them the upper hand and I can't have that. He really is a teddy bear though, but don't tell him I said that!!

  16. It's great spotting people when they first start blogging and how their style changes over time... it's just a shame so many fall by the wayside.

    1. I know it is. These people stuck me out when I was clueless and I love them for it. A lot of blogs start and then stop abruptly and sometimes you never know why. I don't know if you've noticed, but I have you on my blogroll!! You've got a great thing going over there at your place.

  17. it is a shame that we lose that freedom though to feel we can post up whatever catches us...ha...it took me a bit to catch on as well...

  19. OOoh...I hate spiders when they're sober. A high spider? That just made me itch! lol. Oh gosh that was creepy!

  20. To be honest, my expectations for my blog is still low. I guess that's why I haven't done much editing the template or buying my own domain yet.

  21. Loved that clip, I actually thought it was real ......at first, you got me there!!!! LMAO!!!!!

    1. It got me at first too Ray. But when that spider made a hammock I knew this was a joke. I'm drawing Angry's knight right now and then I'm drawing you. You both will be on horseback. I hope you don't fall off!!

  22. Wouldn't want a spider bite from a spider that's on drugs.

    1. I got bit by a plain old spider last summer and my whole hand swelled up and I got sick. A spider on pot would have made me mellow.

  24. Wait, if they allow spiders to take drugs, then why can't I share a beer with the meerkats at my local zoo? It doesn't "spoil it for kids", like the keeper who threw me out claimed.

    1. I'd love to see drunken meerkats. I got one of my dogs drunk a long time ago, he just spun in circles then fell down. It was grand!

  25. Hope you got rest. Off to watch the video.

  26. That video is hilarious! I'm so glad I met you, Anne! :)

  27. I'm so flattered that you write for us, and you show us drugged up spiders. I mean this sincerely. Because this is so much better than being 'tagged' or posting up 'cute kitty pictures.' Now cats on drugs...

  28. Anne, your blog was one of the first I followed so you have passed it on big time. I don't know if it was the blonde hair - blue eyes, the Irish factor, or drunkeness and debauchery that attracted me to your site but I'm glad I dropped in.

  29. As the cannibal said when he looked in the toilet a few hours after eating a clown, "That's some funny shit."

  30. Nothing like a humorous spider video. Thanks, sweetums.

  32. I like that this video started out with just enough seriousness to make the absurd premise of giving a spider LSD seem credible.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hahaha! I thought that video was a serious documentary at first, so I was quite surprised by the development afterwards.

    Regarding blog core members; Most of my team have stopped blogging ages ago but I still have some who stayed like Bersercules.

    Btw, I gave you an custom-made award. Just visit my blog for more details.

  34. lol! I was reading your write up as I watched the video and the crack spiders bitch line happened at the same time!

    I feel the same way! Theres like a core group of bloggers and then the rest! But for me its different bloggers! And each of them slightly different groups too! Bloggings funny that way!

    (check out Lord Phrozens blog from yesterday! Its quite amusing! We're both mentioned!)

  35. ps check out the "house hippo" video!

  36. I actually LOLed at this video. That is pretty funny!! That's awesome that you made such great friends through blogging. I think it's great how something so simple is connecting people throughout the world! Plus, after reading so many posts from one person, it is almost like you know them :)
