FlogYoBlog Friday - The Anticlimax Edition

Happy Friday, peoples!

They say first impressions are important. So we put on a nice dress and tart ourselves up a bit when meeting someone new. The blogging equivalent of that is making up a story about FYBF gallivanting around the place and photoshopping your friend's logos in the hopes that you'd all say "OMG Glowless, you are so talented and witty, of course I will follow FYBF to your place while it's on holidays!" 

The problem with first impressions though is that they can be pretty unrealistic. That perfect image will soon fade and the real you is left sitting there in a jeans and a tshirt, with no makeup on, hoping that people will not vomit at the site of you. The blogging equivalent of that is the massive anticlimax of this post after last week.

But I'm hoping you'll forgive me and hop right back on the Blog Flogging train if I give you free stuff - I've even bundled them all together for you over in the sidebar under 'Current Giveaways'.

I have gone a bit giveaway-crazy lately, mainly thanks to it being less than one month til the Aussie Bloggers Conference! I promise, when it's all been and gone (and I'm back in Perth, crying that I miss everyone) that I'll revert back to my usual sarcastic, non-generous self.

Enough blabber, let's Flog!

The Rules
(As stolen from Lori, thus making Baby Jesus cry... sorry)
  1. Follow Where's My Glow? 
  2. Bow down at the alter of Mummy Time; Blog-goddess, all round groovy gal and creator of FYBF
  3. Grab the FYBF button and post it on your sidebar or in the post you're linking up
  4. Link in your favourite/best post from the week
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the comment love)
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well)
  7. A new and fresh link list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week
  8. Because I live in Dullsville Perth the list will open around 7am AWST - I'm not getting up at 5am and the last time I scheduled a post it didn't work
  9. Ripping off my stuff- including these rules- makes baby Jesus cry. if you are doing your own blog hop, please write your own rules. You know who you are

Meet Glowless at the Aussie Bloggers Conference thanks to


  1. Thanks for hosting x

  2. We love you all the way from WA ...I'm coming to visit later this year.

  3. Nope nope - it just won't work for me. I'm doing something to stuff it up! I'll try again :)

  4. Soooo jealous that you are going to the conference...Remember ages ago, I asked you to take on the role of representing all of us WA bloggers while you are over there? Well, this would still be fab but I have decided it would be best if you hide me in your carry on baggage? Please?

    Seriously, good on you for hosting FYBF - took me ages to figure out that I was trying to link up to last week's flog.... ! Will be looking forward to reading all about your adventures at ABC

  8. mwahaha at the Baby Jesus comment,.

  9. WHOOOO is ripping off your shuff - umahh!

  10. I'm not sure, I took that line from Lori's blog too and crossed it out because I AM stealing from her. But referenced stealing is just another way of saying "i love you" isn't it?

  11. Haha Gill - I'm taking one giant suitcase to fit my stuff, Tricky's stuff and my mum's stuff (she's gonna be my nanny for the weekend) so there isnt' much room left - but let's try see if you can fit in my enormous handbag OK? :)

  12. Yay, I got it to work. Thanks for hosting.

    Go the jeans and tshirts!

  13. Thanks for hosting!! Oh and congrats on your woot woot win

  15. Aw, don't you worry, you are still a fabulous flog your blogger hostess!

  16. Did your survey last night. It was interesting to see the results: 1/3 of your readers are related to you and you make them read your blog?

  17. Only 3 people have done the survey - one was Aunty Penny!! Hahaha :)

  18. Ooh let me know, would love to have a meet up x
