Logged on to find this little bit of interesting caught in the spam-filter:
I love your blog. It has been inspiring to read!
I have my own – I have set myself the challenge of getting as dance fit as I was when I was with the [name of a company], in a year. I am going to document my progress for entertainment in a new blog – [blog address with link]
I would be really grateful – if you like it – if you could add it to your list of websites in ‘Everyone Dance’?
ta muchly, and happy dancing.

(P.S. I’m writing this here[as a comment] as your email doesn’t work!)
Ok, so I’m totally flattered, I mean, someone out there wants to be on my blogroll bad enough to take the rather bold step of flat-out-asking.
And you know the Adult Beginner loves her some boldness.
And I love the premise of this new blog,
But I was also like, Girl please! You gotsta earn that mess! And then I was like, ok, how exactly does one earn a place on your blogroll, Ms. Thang?
And then I was like, well….
It’s just gotta have that certain somethin’ ok?!
I don’t know, sheesh, it’s not like I’m an arbiter of Good Bloginess or something, just like having these links around so I can go visit these blogs easily without, like, googling the title and searching.
And I’ve gotten a little gun-shy about putting a brand new blog on the roll. I mean, it makes the Adult Beginner sad to have a link to a great blog that I really love but hasn’t been updated in forever (Banana Feet, I’m looking at you).
So, just waiting to see how things develop, and in the meantime, will defo be checking out the Bold New Blog, and wishing it the best.
PS, as far as I can tell, the email works fine?
PPS, Another way to get traffic from other blogs is just by commenting, with your name as a link. Just judging from my stats, it look like bloggers who comment here get a fair amount of clicks thru? If you’re into that kinda thing?
