Weekend Fluff

First things first:

Congratulations Graduates!

It's been a long hard road but you've finally done it! Kudos to you all!


nyway, as I contemplate the many good comments from yesterday's post, I thought I'd complete this survey that I snagged from iluvpajun via Taku. I didn't answer all of the questions as some things should remain private. I am not as open as Taku, but not as private as a new subscriber onebear, she of the nice collarbone.

Anyway, I do this survey since I have a few new subscribers. And I would like to thank those who have bookmarked me on RBJ: In-Young Park and onebear. Of course, I recognize them at my own risk. The last time I thanked RBJ people, 6 readers unsubscribed in a matter of days. Hahahah. I'm not sure if there is a correlation, but it happened the time before, as well. Not as many people, but enough to notice that some unsubscribed. Oh well. To each his own.

Oh yeah, some people asked previously what RBJ is and what benefits there are to being on it. Well, the Rice Bowl Journal is a site where Asians from around the world can register their blogsite. There, bloggers are categorized by heritage, but you can easily find people by location of current residence or blog community (xanga, blogspot, lj). Once you are registered you can participate freely in the RBJ Forum and my current favorite place, the Tagboard. It's made for short messages and we banter a bit on random topics. They also have a Top 100 based on the number of bookmarks: RBJers can bookmark a favorite blog, bookmarks are tallied and sites are then listed in order--I'm currently number 5/6. As for the benefits, there none that are immediately tangible. But through RBJ, I have met many bloggers I probably would not have met on Xanga alone, and for that I am grateful. I think SleepingCutie once said that she began going to RBJ at my recommendation and ended up hooking up with "the boy"... I'm a matchmaker of sorts! Well, unless they break up...So if you're of Asian heritage and interested, go there and tell 'em Onigiriman sent ya'.
