2,000 Followers Thank you!!!

2,000 FollowersThankyou!!!

Baa baa black sheep! Oh bollocks, I can’t use that term now can I because it’s got racial connotations, fuck, I’m showing my age, it was used when I was a child guvnor, honest! And how is it racist anyway?? They ask if the sheep has any wool! Sheep have wool, it’s a fact, C’mon it’s not like they asked it if it had any cotton! Now that would be racist! Sigh, nanny state, can’t say anything in case we offend someone!

Let’s try again!

Baa baa white sheep! Hang on just a cotton picking minute! If black sheep is racist then white sheep has to be fucking racist too! Otherwise, it’s discrimination and you are saying that it’s OK to rag on white sheep but not OK to rag on black sheep, that’s just uncool people, uncool!

One more time!

Baa baa rainbow sheep! See, I don’t like rainbow sheep, it seems wrong! You naturally get both white and black sheep so both of those terms should be fine but! You don’t get rainbow sheep naturally! Which means some sort of freaky genetic mutation has been going on and that’s just wrong!

Once more with feeling!

Baa baa Welsh sheep! Now I like this one and it’s true as the Welsh love sheep! Fuck it! No, this is probably the worst as the Welsh ‘love’ sheep in entirely the wrong way, they don’t have lamb for dinner they have lamb for dessert with a salty cream sauce!

Last time, I promise!

Baa baa chav sheep! Now, this is cool, let’s go with this!

Baa baa chav sheep have you any drugs?
Yes officer, yes officer, three bags full,
One for the meth-head,
One for crack whore,
And one for the little cunt who lives in the skip!

Oh, hello! I was just filthing up a classic nursery rhyme (as you do) but less of that!

What I wanted to write today is just a short post thanking you all! Why you ask?!? Well! I shall tell you! You see, I noticed earlier today that my follower count for WordPress followers had reached 2,000!

2,000 motherfuckingFollowers!!!

Now, for many of you out there with a blog that amount will be tiny and small but for me it’s massive! I know stats are irrelevant and that you have ghost followers and dead blogs, etc but the fact that I have managed to get to 2,000 regardless of those things is to me an amazing achievement!

I was told long ago (hi Inge) that I’m not a stereotypical book blogger and perhaps that’s true to some extent but what really is a stereotypical book blogger?! Surely all you need to be a book blogger is a genuine love of books?! Yes, I wrote books not fucks! I’m single so I wouldn’t know of a love of fucks!😂 Hello, ladies!😉

I’m not the most confident person and since I started blogging back in March 2016 I’ve had my issues. Hell, it was only a couple of weeks ago that I was questioning keeping my blog! However on my week away I realised that I like having a blog, it’s my own little place on the Internet where I can ramble on. I know I lack eloquence in my reviews and posts and that I go for a very informal style but it works for me and I finally realised that’s OK and that you should blog in the way that works best for and represents you. Mine is informal, blunt, sarcastic and foul-mouthed probably with a heart of gold too (according to Mother Tattooed Book Geek, I’d just say I’m a cunt).😂

Point is, this community is fucking great, regardless of which country we live in, what genre we read or how we blog we are all book lovers turned bloggers who have found each other due to our shared love of books.

And, I just wanted to say thank you to you all! No sarcasm and no swearing (in this paragraph anyway). I know that me and my blog can be an acquired taste and that I’m not for everyone. But to all those who have followed, liked, commented, shared, viewed and supported my blog since its inception, it always has and always will be appreciated, sincerely, THANK YOU!!!

Here’s a poem:

I lost my dog,

So I started a blog,

I love reading a good book,

I like using the word fuck,

If an awesome blog you do seek,

Come find me, The Tattooed Book Geek,

If you don’t follow me you are a fool,

For all those that do, respect, you’re all super cool!

2,000 motherfuckingFollowers!!! (1)

  1. Wow that’s brilliant! You’re clearly not offending enough people now & I do like your attempts with the nursery rhyme, best make sure I don’t teach that version to mini 😂😂 almost on the lines of the ones I was taught by my uncles as a kid

      1. Something about animals going on to the ark with fags and booze, little miss muffit sitting with a machete …..can’t remember them fully, just snippets of their inappropriate natures 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I have to admit I’ve never seen a real black sheep before. I feel like I should remedy that situation one day. Cheers to 2000 more followers! 🙂

  3. Congrats on 2k followers! I do feel like rainbow sheep should be a thing though. Think how much easier colouring yarn would be! Think of the knit scarves and socks! I’m 100% here for rainbow sheep. Bring it on.

  4. I am mortally offended by the racial connotations in your post – picking on Welsh rainbow sheep! Don’t you think life is fucking hard enough for them already, without bigoted book bloggers commenting on their unfortunate colouring? As a Welsh rainbow sheep supporter, I must therefore unfollow your blog, so your number is back to 1999 – bah! Let it be a lesson in political correctness, sonny! 😂😂😂

      1. Honestly, your blog is epic, never fails to make me laugh, congrats on the 2000! 🎉🎁💜 PS: I hope you reckognised the f-word in my reply as a token of true appreciation of your blog. You know how difficult that was? I could literally hear my catholic grandmother turn over in her grave scrabbling to get her hands on a bar of soap to wash out my mouth. Her ghost will probably haunt me in my sleep tonight 😜

      2. Thank you, glad I make you laugh, that’s what I try to do in my posts, make people smile (along with the sarcasm and swearing).😂

        Ha, yes, I did notice the use of the ‘f’ word, I bet it was liberating to use it as it’s such a wonderful word!😂

  5. This is totally fucking epic Drew! Your blog is bloody amazing and you totally deserve the followers! This post is hilarious as they often are. Love how you nearly always crack me up! Don’t ever change!

  6. Now, you see, I don’t think rainbow sheep are as unnatural as you think. I was at the hairdressers today, and this guy with naturally permed hair came in and was having his hair cut next to me. He was telling us that his mum tried to get a perm when she was pregnant with him, but it failed…but he was BORN with a perm. So my hairdresser began theorizing that if someone dyed their hair rainbow colours while pregnant, the kid MIGHT be born with natural, eternal rainbow hair? Just a theory obviously, but perhaps it would be the same with sheep? You’ve gotta think of all scientific possibilities before you make claims about rainbow sheep being unnatural! 😀
    Indeed, what is a stereotypical blogger!? A blog is as unique as the blogger behind it and no two people are the same 😀
    Super massive congratulations! You’re mean to me, but I think you and your blog are epic! Here’s to the next 2000!

    1. Hairdresser?! Ah, not somewhere I need to go!😂

      OK, chillax, if you prove that rainbow sheep are real then I will apologise to the rainbow sheep population!

      I really don’t know what a stereotypical blogger is, not a clue!

      Ha, you think both me and my blog are epic, not just the blog but me too, I shall remember that next time you’re being mean to me!😂😂😂

  7. OK, hang on.. what have I missed? I mean, what’s all this racist stuff around baa baa black sheep? Totally missing the point 😀
    And IF one was to be really taking the piss, the rainbow sheep could be seen as discriminatory as well…. ^^
    But aaanyway, I remember when a black sheep for me was a myth… and then I came to ireland and now they’re everywhere… there’s at least one black sheep on every field and some even have 2! *gasps* 😀 Sheep are cool but they also freak me out… whenever I go for walks, they always just gang up on me and start bleating like really loud and I’m just there- shit, I’m in a horror movie! 😀

    Importantly though- congrats on the mega milestone! Well deserved and you just keep doing what ya doin’! 😉

    1. Oh definitely rainbow sheep could be discriminatory but I presume it’s rainbow =colourful and happy or somesuch nonsense!😂

      I know! It’s crazy, you get black sheep, lots of them and it’s a term used to describe someone too, my mother says that my grandad was classed as the black sheep in his family due to him moving down to the midlands from nearer north. It’s not racist but because it’s ‘black’ they’ve kicked off and it had to be changed and the phrase is hated on to. Too much nanny state and people taking offence over things.

      Thank you.😀 I know stats aren’t important but I’m always putting my blog and my writing down so getting to a milestone is a nice feeling for me personally as it makes me realise that people do like what I write.

      2. Yes! It’s been going on for a while! I was amusing myself telling a work colleague my altered version of old Mcdonald and baa baa black sheep and got told they don’t use that anymore due to it being racist and derogatory and they use rainbow sheep in the nursery rhyme. I asked a couple of others with kids too and yeah, it’s true and bring that way for a few years now, baa baa rainbow sheep!😂😂😂
