Firstly, it's coming up to the 21st of the month which is when I change sponsor. I do have one lined up, but he's not been particularly active on his blog, so I'm not sure it's worth his money me linking to him at the moment; also he's a PPC, so sensibly his timeslot should be the month before the election... Anybody fancy giving me some money for next month? Or anybody I owe money to fancy reducing my debt a bit? Drop me an email (jennieDOTriggATgooglemailDOTcom) or leave a comment to this post if you want to appear at the bottom of my every post for the next month.

Secondly, my sidebar is getting too big, so I am going to take some stuff out of it. The thing is, I don't want to take stuff out that people find useful. I'm going to merge sponsors and quotes into "endorsements" and have a post to link to for the majority of them. I am also thinking of removing page summary, and possibly the tag cloud. What do you guys think about this?

SB might be overthinking this a bit

Look, it's Saturday lunchtime, I've just got up, and I can't think about anything. Why are you asking me all these questions??

Thirdly, if you read blogs but don't write your own, you might want to take a look at this (non-partisan) series of posts on Lib Dem Voice. My lovely fiancé's instalment has just gone up, and I will be writing a little bit for it myself later in the year.

The following people have said informative things about me:

  • Respect - Dan Hodges, Torygraph columnist

  • There are ways of handling a situation diplomatically and then there's unleashing Jennie Rigg at a problem - Alisdair Calder McGregor

  • We liked this blog a lot because of the irreverent tone and variety of content and it's clear this is a serious blogger. -

  • She drinks BEER! She has BOOBIES! She eats Daily Mail readers for BREAKFAST! She's [personal profile] miss_s_b and she's fearawesome. - [ profile] burkesworks

  • I find myself agreeing with Jennie more than almost any other blogger, especially when she says I'm always right. She is in possession of uncommon sense (much rarer than the common kind) and gets annoyed at all the right things. - Andrew Hickey

  • More a non-shrinking Venus Fly Trap than a shrinking violet - The Honourable Lady Mark Valladares.

  • brimming with imagination, irreverence, the right amount of darkness and a tiny little sprinkling of evil in its purest form. - Caron

  • man enough to take on all comers (though not quite man enough to put me on the turn) - Daddy Alex

  • She has taught me more about real ale than any other political blogger ever could. - [ profile] sideshow_meg

  • You do come out with some random stuff, you do. - Ex-Councillor Bob Thompson

The following people have, in the past, given me money to advertise on my blog:

miss_s_b: (Fangirling: Beer!)
So, we are having a Hallowe'en Beer festival at work, and several of the things we are doing (Costume Competition, pumpkin-carving, Quiz, etc.) require FABULOUS PRIZES TO BE WON! Now, while I would like to be able to offer (for example) free passes to next year's FFW (Aw, go on Tony, Peer, PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE??) and signed prints of [ profile] pmoodie's Werewolf and Cthulhu pics, I recognise that maybe people won't be willing to give away such valuable things in these hard economic times (whilst, obviously, still hoping that they will).

I have a couple of duplicate DVDs that I can throw in, and obviously there's always beer, cos it's a pub. Anyone else have any exciting ideas for stuff we can offer?
