Use Me and Abuse Me Day – March Wild Hare with Much Madness Edition


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!


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!


Mad Hatter Susie Lindau

Yep. I’m as Mad as a Hatter. Just ask the bear!

Bring a link from a post on your blog and paste it in the comment section along with a short plug or hook. You’ll get the best results by bringing a specific link from one of your posts rather than your blog url. That really keeps this party rockin’ and keeps readers knockin’ on your door.

Then the fun begins! Chat up new friends! Go over to their place. Check out their digs. Then they should click back over to yours. Tell them, “Susie sent me!”

This is a reciprocal party. Those that click back, get the most new followers!

My followers are the best in the blogosphere. There will be a lot of new faces for you to check out! Be ready to mingle. The bar is open, the barista is brewing her first batch of cappuccinos and everything on the buffet is fresh. Help yourself and plan to come back. These parties always become ragers and rip through the weekend.

All I ask is to consider following my blog. I love all of my readers and through UMAMD, you can meet each other! How cool is that?

So have fun and remember if you leave a link, click on a few. You may come alone, but you’ll leave with new friends!

Spread the word. The more, the madder, I mean, the merrier!

  1. Susie, can’t fit much more excitement in this month? How about a birthday before Easter, a birthday after Easter, family in town for both of them plus Easter, the dishwasher goes out, so does my alternator. Oh and we sell our house so we are in mad (Hatter) kinda rush to find one to move to. It’s crazy! But its fun too. Here’s a way to have a Happy Monday…
    PS love the hat!


    1. Thanks!
      Sounds like you are living a Wild Life! Whew! Doesn’t everything always happen/break down at once? It seems like the world reacts to our energy or something…
      Fun post to bring to the party!
      Have fun clicking on links! Tell the guests, “Susie sent me.”


  2. I go away and you are partying. I come back and you are partying. What in the world must Roxie think of her “wild” hare parent. 🙂 Always fun to go down the rabbit hole with you. 🙂


  3. I ordered my usual protein supplement the other day and there was an ad for various healing teas. There is a ‘cough-off tea’ that has a lady saying “I had been coughing for 3 years and visited 5 doctors. One day I found the Cough-Off tea and it stopped my coughing the first day I tried. Amazing!” :)Hey, Im not mad if you don’t read through Thanks for the invite Susie. Wild!


    1. I visited your blog, you blogosaurus. Great poetry. Is there a punch line to the coughing ad, or did it really cure that lady? Did it choke her to death, which is how it delivered as promised?


        1. Cough off tea. I’ll remember that!
          Very fun blog! Welcome to the blogosphere! Have fun clicking on the guest’s links and say hello! They should click back to your place. Tell them, “Susie sent me.” 🙂


  4. What up Susie! I’m late to the party, but that’s when it starts getting interesting. Love the Mad Hatter pic … you look awesome and as always your parties rock. Got some funny peeps out here. 🙂

    Here’s my addition to the party. I posted it a while back … all about that one gray hair that I wear like a badge of honor and how Tim McGraw is responsible for it. Hope you get a laugh. 🙂


    1. Hey Guat! You are so brave!! Love this post.
      You are never too late to party at one of my Use Me and Abuse Me Days. They should be called Use Me and Abuse Me Week! Readers will pop in all weekend.

  5. Late to the party as always. I even had this marked on my blogging calendar! Looks like a fab time, and hopefully I can get in on the action on time for the next go around!!


    1. It’s not too late!!!!!!!!!!! The cool thing about the party is whenever you click on a link and tell them “Susie sent me,” they should click back! It will roll through the weekend. There are people partying here right now!
      Bring a link and start clicking! There are a lot of new Wild Riders to meet! They will love you!


  6. Yanno…the hat is Willie Wonka meets Dr. Seuss and Jimi Hendrix. Which has me asking…where can I get one? I wanna wear it everywhere. And holy crap, I forgot about this! But umm, I’ll be back with a link after I read up on some of your many and varied posse. I’ll leave you with this, for now. Only because you asked for it, with that hat….man!


    1. Well it’s about time we get this party started!!!! Rockin’ out to Foghat right now! Ooooh. Slow ride, Take it easy!!!!
      The hat is from Ireland, but if I ever see another, I’ll let you know!
      How could you forget???? So glad you came. Now get back here on the double and leave one of your fabulous links!!!


    1. I love your writing style and your memoir is my favorite! This is a great example of your work Cayman!
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! It wouldn’t be the same without you…


    1. Love the message of your post! Thanks for sharing.
      Have fun clicking on links and saying hello. Everyone brought their best stories. I’ve read all of them!
      Have fun!


    1. Hi Prudence!
      Thanks for coming by! I can’t comment since I don’t have an active Google account. I tried. If you could add “name/url” that will allow WordPress and other blog users to comment on your site. Don’t bother with “WordPress.” It doesn’t work…
      Thanks for bringing your links! You have been a busy girl. Congratulations!


    1. It’s never too late! Everyone here will respond to your comment on their post. If you tell them, “Susie sent me.” they should click back to your place! Partiers will be stopping by all weekend!
      The bar is open and the DJ just started a new set!
      Loved that post! You have a way with metaphors and description that is for sure!


    1. You are so sweet! Thank you so much! I’ve tweaked my site a lot through the years that’s for sure.
      Love your stories! They speak of such different times. My mom has told what it was like in the depression in Milwaukee. Talk about doing without!
      Have fun clicking on links and introducing yourself. 🙂 Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back! Everyone brought their best stuff! I think I have read all of them.
      Have fun!


  7. Hi Susie! Love the hat! Isn’t Ireland the best? Our family went there together several years ago and the kids still talk about it. I don’t think there’s anything more greener than the Emerald Isle. Wow, look at all the blog love girl. Lots of great posts. I have to admit it took me awhile to get to the comment section as I jumped over to other sites.

    Of course, I don’t have a book published yet, so I would like to promote my blog. This week Marcy Kennedy wrote a fantastic post about how to get the most out of an editor. How do we know when we need an editor? And what can we expect? Here’s the link:

    Have a great weekend! 🙂


    1. This is such a great interview! I had no idea the prep a writer could do to save money.
      Thanks for bringing this to the party Karen! I am so glad that you came. 🙂
      Ireland is the best!

    1. Thanks so much! I have so many great followers, so this party is my way to get them together and meet up!
      This is so funny! I can see why you brought it. And you have a Colorado connection. How great is that?
      Have fun clicking on links and saying hello! Most of the guest will click back to your place. Have fun!
