Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Meteor/Asteriod Crashing Valentine’s Day Edition

meteor 4

Happy Valentine’s Day! The party is in the house. The tunes are cranked and the doorbell is ringing. It’s time for another Use Me and Abuse Me Day! 

It is time to spread the LOVE! Who knows what tomorrow will bring with super winter storms and asteroid/meteors raining down from the sky. Here’s your chance to mingle and make some new friends!

I have some new blogger friends who are dying to meet you! Just bring a link to one of your posts and leave it in the comment section along with a short hook to entice them. Then start mingling/clicking on the guest’s links! Say, “Hello! Susie sent me.” Hang out at their place for a while. Check out their digs. Subscribe to a few of your new friends. Maybe they will subscribe to your blog!

The more links you click, the better the results!

Only post ONE link from your blog or you’ll end up in my spam filter. The spammers have been slipping past the bouncer lately. Stinkers!

It is better to bring a link to a specific post than just your blog URL. It’s the difference between being welcomed at the door and opening it up to find no one home, so you have to peek into their bedrooms while shouting, “Hello???”

Remember that the party always becomes a RAGER, so if you want to stop back in the next day or two, there will be more bloggers to check out!

The food is catered from the finest restaurants in Boulder. The barista is already concocting cappuccinos and the bar is open.

To get you into the Valentine spirit, you gotta stop by and say hello to Lola! Leaping for Love, Lust, and Lola for Valentine’s Day 

Thanks to all of you for your blog love. I hope you stop by again before the next day of abuse!

Please consider following my blog. It’s always a Wild Ride!

Tweet me!  @susielindau

Spread the word. The more the merrier.

It’s time to mingle!

  1. Honestly, I’ll let you know that @JennyHansenCA is having a Pimp and Promote Day, too. So now that I’ve done the yenta thing, I’ll let you talk amongst yourselves. She’s at MORE COWBELL.

    As for me, I’m just promoting today. Love to you and Jenny!


  2. Well, well, well. Isn’t this fortuitous? My new book hit the digital market today and here is our lovely Susie offering us another “Use me and abuse me day.”

    Oh yes, I almost forgot. There are two books all wrapped up in on make-believe digital cover (sorry it couln’t be hardbound but that’s the way these digital folks roll).


    • Hey! I am so glad that you made it to the party! Help yourself to the beverages and buffet and click on a few links!
      Loved this post and am glad that you brought it. It is pretty eye opening!


  3. This party is HOPPING! Happy Valentine’s Day my lovely friend! I’ve brought four different kinds of brownies and some way too rich chocolate cheesecake. I’m a bit wired on sugar right now!

    I would love it if some new peeps got to know a writer friend of mine ~ Amber West. We took a spin on the TARDIS a while back and had a blast. You can read all about here:

    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go mingle and make some new friends. Love you!


    • This is a great story Colin! It has everything too..
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! Have fun clicking on some links and chatting up the guests. There are quite a few new faces today!


      • HA! I figured you might get laugh from this post. The letter often cracks me up and sometimes I can’t believe I wrote it … but anything for chocolate right? And you’re right there were a couple of newbies at your party that I had never seen before, so I stopped by and mingled :) Good party.


      • So glad you enjoyed it, Susie – and many thanks for so many awesome fellow blogger introductions! Wow, it’s going to take a few days to get through all these links, lol. You hold awesome parties! xoxox


  4. Mind if I join this party and mingle with all the SEXY ladies here? Cupid is in the house! You foxy ladies can use me and abuse all you want!

    Happy Valentine’s Day Susie! Again, thanks for hosting this wonderful shindig. So many great bloggers here to read. I penned a special post just for V-Day.



  5. Hi Susie!! Thanks so much for inviting me, this is my first blog link party! One Awkward Link Party??

    And hello to everyone else. I’m so looking forward to spending a whole afternoon goofing around on the internet and finding new blogs. My favorite kinda day. I’m sharing a post that I think gives a prettty good idea what you might find over at my blog.

    Thanks for stopping by (er, thanks in advance? I dare you to stop by!) I am socially awkward, even on the internet! Happy Valentine’s Day to all! xo


    • Love this and all of your awkward posts! I am so glad that you stopped by! I do these parties once a month and they always attract new bloggers which is great! Everyone is looking for new posts to read!
      Click away my friend!


    • I love I mean LIKE your event! And I know what you mean about how many never come back!
      Thanks for coming to the party. I hope you enjoy clicking on a few links and introducing yourself!


  6. What a great party you throw, Susie Jacuzzi. Thank you. And that picture of you — you’re like the mad one, mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, one who never yawns or says a commonplace thing, but burns, burns, burns like a fabulous yellow roman candle exploding across the stars.

    But don’t use me. Don’t use, confuse, or abuse me.


    • Oh my god Ray that is so fantastic.1 am going to copy your comment! Hahaha!
      I promise not to use, confuse, or abuse you! Just have fun and click on some links, I mean, mingle with the guests and tell them Susie sent you! Help yourself to the bar and the buffet. It’s the best in the blogosphere!
      I am so glad that you stopped by!

      Loved your post! It is such a great insight into Valentine’s Day. :)


  7. Hello once again Susie (and fellow users!), I said I’d call by, and I have! The last time I took part in one of your ‘dos’ Susie, I left a link to a post where the comments had been switched off. I’ve still not worked out how to turn them back on again, so this time I’ve gone for a more recent post. As we are facing impending doom from falling rocks once again, we don’t really need any more woe, but I’ve had a woeful experience this week due to my fabulous ability of not knowing how to use WordPress properly, although I’ve been blogging for a few hundred years now, and this post describes it. Sort of. I’ll be back at the weekend to visit some of your other participants, due to time restrictions, but thanks for hosting another of these events Susie. Oh, nearly forgot the link! – I hope this is it! :shock:


  8. Damn, Susie! You are a crack up. I love that picture of you on the asteroid. It’s priceless! I’ve just been so out of it lately, I’ve got nothing. How sad is that? I should be promoting my anthology that came out today and I don’t even have a post for that. Huge fail. :( Can we bottle some of your energy and organization?


    • Hi Debra! Great to see you! How do I not know about your Anthology???? Just post the link to the purchase site. Congratulations!
      You know how this works, click on a few and they’ll click back..


  9. Hi Susie

    Yes, this whole asteroids winging passed is definitely getting me worried. They don’t even seem to know they’re coming until the last minute. That’s not a lot of good if we’re going to send Bruce Willis up to sort it out.

    For pimping I’ll put my valentines post up,

    As for promoting, I’ll vote for Madame Weebles at, who has, apart from anything else, an awesome collection of weebles!

    Have a great valentines evening!



    • I really loved this post Nigel! It gave me shivers! This is truly a case of life is stranger than fiction!
      This is a pimp yourself party that I host once a month so my friends can get to know one another. I hope you enjoy clicking on a few links. Tell them, “Susie sent me!” and they should click back! It is a great way to pick up a few new subscribers and to find some new bloggers to read.
      The party is still RAGING so come back anytime!


    • I love this story and its message. We should all remember this when facing adversity!
      Thanks for coming to party with us Denise! It is still rockin’ and will through the weekend. A lot of hard core partiers are still arriving!


    • It is never to late here on the Wild Ride! Click on a few and tell them, “Susie sent me!” I am glad to meet another Boulderite even though you don’t live here anymore. :)
      Have fun!


    • I know! I’ve been following it! Apparently scientists don’t bother tracking the smaller meteors even though they have the ability to take out an entire large city. The reason I wrote my Heads up! post was because there was no news about the one that is still flying by at 2:20 Eastern time today! Now they are talking…


    • I knew about the big one that passed by today at 2:20 Eastern, but the one that crashed in Russia was a huge surprise! I knew something was up this morning when my Tuesday “Heads Up!” post started to go viral! The reason I wrote it was there was hardly any news about it. Now there is!


  10. I am a straight-up whore this time Susie. I am off to a show in San Francisco but I am taking your invitation and using you and abusing the hell out of your amazing blog to post my page for my iPhone workshop. I am teaching iPhone photography workshops that will make blogger images POP! My next one is in San Francisco and we will be doing them in Denver, Houston, Dallas, Austin, and NYC in the coming months. Launching an iPhone photo trip to Italy in October. Here are all the details
    I promise to be back to make new friends on Monday and see all the wonderful connections Susie’s Wild Ride is known for!
    Cheers and much love Susie!


  11. Wow, this was one awesome party Susie! Are there any stragglers left hanging out around here? Sorry I’m late. I’ve been knee deep in with personal issues the last coupld of days.

    Just in case someone needs a little writerly pick-me-up, I’ll leave the URL to my post this week, “To Write or Not To Write.” You cannot go wrong with advice from James Scott Bell. :)

    Thanks Susie! Stay safe. That was a close call today.


    • I am so glad that you came by! I hope you enjoy meeting my friends. Just click on a couple of links and say hello! They would love to see you too!
      Loved your post. It is so important to figure out those optimal conditions for writing! Thanks for bringing it to the party!


    • Thank you for coming Piper! The way that it works is you click on a couple of links and they will click back! Lot’s of mingling and hooking up going on at this one… It is still rollin’!
      Loved this post. Super hilarious and true about men! Hahaha!
      Have fun and help yourself to the buffet and the barista has been a magician with the drinks!
      Have fun!


    • Love this Paul! The poem has some haunting qualities that are wonderful!
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! I hope you have fun clicking on a few links. Tell them “Susie sent me,” and they should click back!
      Have fun!


      • Thank you Susie. When I have time, I will be sure to check out the other party people’s websites, and I will make sure that they know you sent me! Oh, by the way. That meteorite in Russia, was a separate thing to the one which was passing by close to the Earth. Maybe, they thought it was too small to warn about, until the pieces landed!
        : ) Lots Of Love OXOXOXOXOXO


          • Didn’t they say that the impact created enough energy, as a nuclear warhead too. I wonder how that will affect the town’s people for a radiation point of view! Have fun my friend. Always great to hear from you Sweetie. Glad we reconnected again! : ) Big Hugs Paul OXOXOXOXO
