I would never even have a blogpage except that my technologically astute and Mandarin speaking niece Emms/aka Maggie Ronan created one for me. So what would I know about pingbacks?
Turns out they are notices you get when another blogpage has linked to yours.
Another reason, besides stupidity, that I didn’t know what pingbacks are is that I had never gotten one until the other day.
So what other blogpage do you think I heard back from? The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, wishing I would say something nice about them? Sister Elizabeth Johnson, thanking me for my praise of her book?
Not on your life. My first pingback was from Chicken-ark.com, a blog about raising chickens, building chicken coops, etc. (Turns out a chicken ark is a certain kind coop. Who knew?)
In the interest of expanding the number of my followers, I am seriously considering renaming my blog “An American Catholic on the Margins of Chickenland.” Be sure to check back and see what I decide.
