Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Dance Bomber Edition

Colorado received several inches of rain in the first days of July. Fire restrictions were lifted and it’s greening up!

Hello to all of you Wild Riders out there! It’s another Use Me and Abuse Me Day! Here is your chance to join the virtual party, meet new writers and learn some dance moves.

Choose a link from your blog and paste it in my comment section. Go ahead and sell it whether it’s a post, a video or a book. That’s when the party starts.  Click on a few links and tell them Susie sent you and they should click back. Feel free to have a conversation right here on my blog too. Virtual champagne toasts will ensue and friendships will be made. I hope you will subscribe to some new blogs and get a few new subscribers too!

All I ask is that you consider subscribing to my blog.

Just remember your manners. No one goes to a party and fills a doggy bag and leaves. Make sure you check out a few new bloggers by clicking on their links and saying hello!

The party wouldn’t be complete without some dancing. Roxy and I had fun making this video for you! It’s pretty short and includes an instructional video on how to become a Dance Bomber. I got the idea the night after our hike in Breckenridge. We were passing by a wedding reception…..Well, you’ll see.

So get ready to mingle, chat up your new friends, and hey, maybe you will get lucky and go home with some new subscribers!

Be sure to get off your chair at some point ….. and DANCE!

  1. First of all, Dance Bombing is awesome! You must continue this theme all over the state. Juliet and I will join you 🙂

    My post today has not a single comment and it was really the beginning the Mike series of fiction that is continuing in Italy 🙂

    A bit long but it has some catchy riffs for prose bombing!

    I am going to dive hard into your audience today as soon as I get back from lunch 🙂

    1. So glad you came Michael. How is it going out in .org land? We miss you here at .com… 🙂
      I just made up “dance bombing” this weekend when Danny and I were walking by that party last weekend! I had to stop and dance! I think Roxy was glad to miss out…
      I stopped by one of your posts today right after I got the email alert. I think there is a delay in alert time.
      Ha. I just got the alert about your new post and 2:03!
      Grab a glass of champagne and have fun Michael!

      1. Susie,
        My posts are now alerted each day between 9 and 11 CO time so if I write a post after 11am it is not delivered till the next day. I am working on this with WP (who have become my best friends and worst enemies) I have honestly not been around much in org or com land lately and am hopefully getting back in the groove just like you and Danny at an uninvited party 🙂 OK, I need to meet some of your peeps here today. Cheers Susie!

  2. I’m stuck on an airplane right now. It’s been an hour. So I can’t easily provide a direct link, but I’d love it if people would check out either today’s post about a trip back to my old summer camp as an adult. Or if they don’t like that one,

    I also wanted to ask people to scroll back and write a quick note to my son who is away for a month at the same summer camp that I went to! I’ll print them out and bring them on Visitor’s Day this Sunday! My blog is Teachers & Twits. Folks can find me at http://rasjacobson.com

    Thanks!

    I like your parties Susie, you meet people you would never otherwise see…. so good job!

    Today, I would like to share something serious. Due to the recession, there are thousands of bankers who haven’t gotten a bonus. Many of them are depressed, and have been forced to eat at KFC like the rest of us. I’m starting a charity fund for these poor helpless bankers.

  4. Thanks for the invitation, Susie. I usually avoid parties, but this one looked like fun.

    I inadvertently sent this link yesterday, but here it is again. This was the first post in which I began to demonstrate what an idiot I am. People seemed to like it and, realizing how endless the supply of material would be, I’ve mostly stuck to that theme ever since.

  6. Hi Susie. Who does your camera work??
    I know this is against the rules, but I did two posts on two different blogs this week, both of earth-shattering significance I’m sure, and can’t decide between them. Will you pick? Shall it be: Tidy Person Meet a New Kind of Dirty: Bicycle Cleaning 101? Or Cups and Balls: the Right Reverend LIBOR?
    NOW — which of the above delicious posts shall I pick first? Thanks for the party, and glad to know you’re safely dampened.

    By the way, I brought some virtual sugar-free brownies, in case any other diabetics attend the party. Also BTW, I’m jealous of your mountain photo. Must be nice to have stuff like that in your back yard.

  9. First of all Susie, as I shared with my facebook friends yesterday, you really know how to throw a party! I love, love, love cyber champagne as you know from Diane Capri’s launch of Don’t Know Jack! And I love to boogie! Did you see me dancing off to the side. I tried to get on camera, but you kept on bumping me out of the picture. What’s up with that? LOL! 🙂

    Anyway, I want to post this blog first because it is for a great cause. And that is “Fifteen writers from The Mystery Writers of America and The Romance Writers of America have got together to include their book for Jeff’s ‘Sell Books for Steve Day’ which is happening next Monday, July 16th. http://handcuffedtotheocean.com/ ” Please join us everyone! Steve has cancer!

  10. I’m not sure how I even made it home after Susie’s last party. I thought the margarita’s were vegan but somebody spiked the punch and I ended up going home with my own wife. Which actually wasn’t so bad since she was drunk, too. And Susie’s a doll for not bringing it up and embarassing me. So here’s my home address: http://photocitations.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/foom.

      1. Thanks but I’m currently on the wagon. At least while attending one of your parties. They tend to get a bit too wild and I’d rather not embarass myself again.

    There you will find the meanderings of an octogenarian, who is too full of life for his own good. He calls himself a ‘gog’ (Grumpy ol’ git), but I find him endearing.
    He also thinks he’s funny and a timeless hit with the ladies, due to his deathless charm and wit. His modesty becomes him!
