All Your Rice Are Belong To…Me

When I checked up on my blog this morning, I noticed a pingback from Nice4Rice and was pleasantly surprised that Nick Ramsay, a.k.a Spud Oregon, had reviewed my blog! I had been reading his blog, which reviews other blogs and pits them in a battle royale for small blue bowls of rice, since Michael Kwan told me that he had been reviewed almost a month ago. I think it’s a fantastic idea since it promotes blogs in the community and it’s also a good move on Oregon’s part since it is almost a sure thing that reviewed bloggers will give him a link back.


Oregon says he throughly enjoyed reading the.[ED]ition but unfortunately, his wife was not amused that he spent all day doing so. He was particularly interested in my post on Youtube and Myspace as well as the comparison between Top Gear and Fifth Gear. Spud is British so I’d expect that he is familiar with Clarkson and company even though he is currently teaching English in Japan.


Nice4Rice features a sort of voting system where readers “give rice” to the reviewed blog. At this moment, I currently only have two big blue bowls courtesy of Kelly Cho and fruityoaty.com so please sir, could I have some more rice? Voting gets your blog a free backlink from Nice4Rice, which is a nice way to encourage reader participation. Tell you what…if you vote for my blog on Nice4Rice, I’ll give you a free backlink here too probably in a Speed Link Sunday as long as you come here and leave a comment to let me know about it.

That title is hilarious! “Damn you Ed Lau!” I have a friend named Ed as well and we say the same thing with his name. Rice 4 U!

Wow! I wasn’t expecting that, Ed! If you could see the big grin on my face right now! Really, it’s very kind of you to write this post. I would’ve been thrilled with a backlink, but to get a full-blown, color article is just awesome! You truly are being nice for rice. Now, come on everyone, hop over to Ed’s review and vote for him!

All Your ___ Are Belong to Us… Haha, I never get tired of variations of that joke. At my last job (software tester), my co-worker’s e-mail signature was “All Your Bugs Are Belong to Dev”.

Nice4Rice is certainly a great concept for marketing your blog.

Spud: You were nice enough to review my blog so the least I can do is return the favor. :)

fruityoaty: I get tired of the joke sometimes but I don’t think there’s a more appropriate use than this title.

Danny, Jason, Matt, kenny: Thanks for the support guys! Everyone can expect a backlink this Sunday regardless of whether or not your blog is featured on Speed Link Sunday.

My site was won of the earlier sites to get reviewed and that was when, both my site, and Spud’s were relatively new so I didn’t get much rice :sad:

Ed, as I write this you’re 2nd in the All-Time Rice Earners rankings! Ahead of John Chow even!

Somehow I don’t think anyone will catch Culture Shiok! He’s such a rice whore! :)
