Use Me and Abuse Me – Roxy Blog Hopping Edition

I hope you had a fabulous Easter. Roxy did!

Blog hopping Roxy 1

It’s party time and I’m inviting all of you to Use Me and Abuse Me! 

Bring ONE link to a story you’d like to share with my friends. Paste it in my comment section below. Then the fun begins! Click on a few links and “mingle” with the guests. Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back!

“Follow” a couple and you may “pick up” a few new subscribers.

If you leave a link, make sure to click on a few. You wouldn’t go to a party and fill a bag with appetizers and leave, so don’t leave a link and run. If you leave more than ONE link, you’ll end up in my spam filter. That is always so embarrassing for both of us.

Relax. Stay a while. Help yourself to the buffet. The bar is always open. The barista is making coffee drinks. DJ Kelly Smash is in the house, so don’t forget to DANCE!

I am so fortunate and grateful to have met some hideous (awesome) friends through blogging. Brickhouse Chick and Kathryn McCullough tweeted my Open Letter link to @Freshly_Pressed and the editors FP’d it! Woohoo! I am still happy dancing.  Make sure to click on their links and check out their blogs! Brickhouse Chick always has something funny to share and Kathryn will give you a glimpse into her life in Ecuador. They are living (and virtual), proof that the blogging community here at WordPress is the very best. Thanks again girls! *muah*

If you ever read a Freshly Pressed worthy post, be sure to Tweet the editors at @Freshly_Pressed. It works!

Now click on some links and DANCE!

Hey everybody! It’s another Use Me and Abuse Me Day.

NYE2014

Is this your first UMAMD? You are welcome to leave ONE LINK or URL from one of your blog posts, photos, video, anything really, in my comment section. (Paste two and you’ll end up in my spam filter. It’s always so embarrassing for me and my guest.)

That’s when the party starts. Say hello to others who stop by. Check out the new faces in my comment section. Click on a few links and tell them, “Susie sent me!” They should click back to your place. Now you know the drill! These parties always last for days and easily a full week, so you can keep stopping back.

NYE2014 1

DJ KSmash is in the house and spinning. Help yourself to the bar. If you prefer, the barista will make any coffee drink you can imagine. I’ve flown in delicacies from the finest restaurants in New York City.

I hope you have fun meeting my friends!

Now click on the video and dance with me!

Yep. Another Use Me and Abuse Me Day starts tomorrow, Jan. 2nd, at 6:30 in the morning and will roll through the weekend! Bring ONE link to your favorite blog post from 2013. Leave your url in my comment section and then click on a couple. They will click back to your place! Tell them Susie sent you. This is all about YOU making a connection.

Maybe you’ll hit it off and they’ll subscribe to your blog!

2013 taught me that community is everything. Bloggers are real people who care. I have made some of the most wonderful friends through this blogging thing. My wish for 2014 is you meet some of my friends too!

Happy New Year! See you tomorrow. Bring your dancing shoes…

Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Haunted Halloween Edition

Haunted Halloween UMAAD

Welcome to another Use Me and Abuse Me Day. This is a very special virtual party. I’m dressed in my Morticia Addams costume. Cousin It and Thing will be helping out. 

Bring ONE link from a blog post (the spookier the better or anything else your trembling heart desires), and leave it in the comment section. Then the party will begin! Click on a few links and say “bla, bla, I want to suck your blood, I mean, “Susie sent me.” They should shriek click back to your place. Dracula is expecting you.

The candles are lit, Lurch is playing the organ, Igor is answering the door, and the witches brew is packing an extra punch. Help yourself to the finger food. I know. They look like real fingers…

Pasting two links in my comment section will send you to my crypt spam filter. I hate when I have to stop dancing to pull screaming guests from the abyss. It’s so embarrassing.

The more links you click on, the more people you’ll meet. Some may fall under your spell and subscribe to your blog.

Like last time, this wild party will become a rager. Keep checking back through the weekend to see who haunts stops by!

Have fun and don’t forget to dance! Click HERE, then stand up and shake your bones…

Spread the word on Twitter and Facebook! More walking dead people will show up at your place!

It’s the Horseman’s Heads Up!

horseman's head

I awake to darkness. A draft creeps up my camisole and I shiver. I peek into the garden tinged in silver by the illuminating moon. Drawn by unseen forces, I step outside. The leaves shudder in the trees as the wind whispers. Listen and you’ll hear it call your name. It continues in a groan, “ANOTHER USE ME AND ABUSE ME DAY IS COMING…” That was much louder than I anticipated. The breeze must have picked up.

At dawn on Thursday, October 24th, the living dead will rise again. I mean, come by and celebrate Halloween one week early! Bring ONE of your spooky posts or anything else your quivering heart desires and post it in my comment section. Grab a glass of potion, have an eye of newt, and the party will begin. Chat up the other guests. Maybe they’ll be cast under your spell and will subscribe to your blog.

 

Muahahahaha!

See you then, if you dare…………………………………

CLICK HERE FOR THE SECRET PASSAGEWAY TO THE PARTY!!!

Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Parisian Rave Edition

Rockin out in Paris

Rockin’ out Parisian Style!

DJ Wild Rider in the House

It’s time once again to Use Me and Abuse Me, so lets get this party started! Yeah baby! The idea is to come and mingle with the guests, introduce yourself and pick up some new followers.

The trick with building a community is finding the people behind the gravatars. They’re there. I know. I’ve met several in person! When building any relationship, communication is key to success. In blogging, we communicate through our posts and comments. I have made a lot of real friendships here on the Wild Ride and so can you!

So come by with ONE link to a blog post and paste it in the comment section. Two will put you in my spam filter and I hate when I have to stop dancing to fish guests out of my filter. It’s so embarrassing… Continue reading

Alice_par_John_Tenniel_02.svg

Has this month been especially wild or what? With Saint Patrick’s Day, the spring equinox, a week-long break for many, March Madness Basketball, and Easter could we pack in another event?

Of course we can! It’s another Use Me and Abuse Me Day here at the Wild Ride. Welcome to all the new partiers!

Do you feel like the March Hare in Alice in Wonderland, as crazy as they come or the White Rabbit? “I’m Late! I’m Late for a very important date!” Hold on there. Put your watch back in your pocket. You’re right on time. Here’s your chance to sit back, relax and party down!

March-hare

Apparently, the Victorians believed running around with straw in your hair meant you were a lunatic, deranged or as Mad as Hatter. Wait that’s from the same story!
