Victory Is Mine, Dooce


So I was on blog vacation, drinking wine in my hotel room with my sister, and I got this email on my new christmas Blackberry from my BBFF McMommy :

"You're number 11 on MomDot's Top 50 Blogs of 2008 list!!!!"

And because I had almost finished the bottle and still am a spazzy ham-hands at the whole touch-screen thing, I could only type back "Wha?" 

Actually, I think I typed "Wgs?" first.

So the whole drive home on the Jersey Turnpike I'm singing the Will.i.am song "It's a New Day" but, you know, substituting images of me instead of Obama in my mental music video.

Get on the MomDot site and start perusing the other (awesome!) winners, starting with #50 and moving up. 

At #43 I stop dead in my tracks and my "might as well eat it now cuz we're so starting a diet on january 1st" donut falls out of my mouth.

#43 Dooce: (alexa: #33,761 technorati: #30) : I know, I’m getting a big roar of outrage for not having her number one, but the fact is, I love her, a million people love her, but a million hate her too. We pat her on her back for being able to do what so many want to do….and even if she is a sell out, we like her style of writing and interesting ways of bringing her posts to life. Trust me..she will never see this and if she did, im quite sure she doesn’t give a shit she isn’t number #1. I don’t sign her checks…federated media does. HA!

Holy crap. As you may know, Dooce has been my rival and nemesis for my entire blogging career. 

Granted, she doesn't know I exist, so the rivalry is not quite as acute on her end.

Nevertheless. She is #43. I am #11. On this list. 

There will be no need for a boob-off at Blogher '09.  My work is done.


Mwuahahahahahahahahahaha.



Ha.



Note to self: Find out what Spiderman did after he killed the Green Goblin.

Congrats! and I dont even know how Dooce is....guess Im not in the loop.

Jen said...

Now all is right with the world! Yeah!!!!

Tiffany said...

Look at you kicking ass. Pretty soon you'll be dating Robert Pattinson. And then I'll have to kill you. But in a totally friendly way of course. LOL

Brittany said...

HOLLA!

You so deserve it, and fuck YES you are better than Dooce. Dooce who? Shit.

Shelley said...

I can't believe you just missed the top 10! Geez, what were they thinking? Congratulations on kicking Dooce's ass! And don't worry, you can't go to hell for putting Jesus in a snuggie. He's probably a lot more comfortable now. However, they must have missed your Lunch with Jesus and Josh Holloway post. That's one of my favorites.

Her boobs? Not lasagna - nuf said...

Life at the White House said...

Congratulations, you are officially a badass! ;-)

And I never read Dooce....I've stopped by a few times, but was never "wowed". I have to go back now to see if I'm missing something.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

hehehehe, you know it was all the swillin'...

Ann said...

Yes!!! It IS possible!!!
Congratulations.
(I'm not surprised. :-> )

Mrs. Newlywed said...

See here is the thing. You are tres cool. I make Mr. Newlywed read your blog, and I say things like "do you think this will be me one day?"

He usually replies no, but it is worth the shot.

congrats.

Oh, yeah PS. Dooce is way lame. I had to see what the hype was about a few months ago. So. not. good.

Allison said...

I know you a billion times better than Dooce when I look over and see my man laughing at his computer. I ask, what's so funny? He says, Happy Meals Sue.

Close enough, right?

texasholly said...

She is probably home crying right now. Now look what you have done.

Scary Mommy said...

Dooce is totally bawling her eyes out right now. I just know it.

Andi said...

Still... maybe put the boobies up there on display, just to rub salt in the wound. I totally would.

Deb said...

Yeah!!!!! I'll drink a mojito in your honor. Now how do I get on that list? :)

michelle said...

Ok, I found you and became addicted all by myself. I had to hear aout this Dooce" and then find her and didn't even bookmark it... you, on othe other hand, ar eon my daily list. Nuff said. You should have been way higher on tht list, baby!

Cathy - wheresmydamnanswer said...

You just rock... It is really that simple!!

Congrats!!

Heather said...

I don't follow Dooce and I rarely even read her. You, however, madame, with your guard poodle and your BG and now the Bumble? I hang on your every made-up word (and all the real ones too). You totally deserve to be number ONE - hey, you could say you're so awesome, they called you number one TWICE! :)

Cheers and congrats!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Your work here is done...

Congrats!!

Lee the MWOB Queen said...

So does this mean YOU are going to be difficult to approach at a BlogHer cocktail party?

You rock, you know it, and we all know it too!

Mrs. S said...

That is AWESOME! Congratulations!!

Rivalry is always healthy! :)

That Crazy Mom said...

Dooce SUCKS. Seriously. I just ranted about her on www.badmommyblogger.com but not by name because I didn't want to give her husband the satisfaction of seeing her name mentioned on yet another blog or sic the Internet police on me for badmouthing her. Plus, she bores me.

You are Top 10 material.

Practically Joe said...

Wow! Great job!
Wait!
Am I the only guy here?
Wa'sup widat?
Seriously ... It's okay I'm here, isn't it?

Swirl Girl said...

Congrats on being 11!

If you were on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the least and 10 being the best....11 is amazing!!

I've never clicked on Dooce , but I hear tell she is kicking herself all the way to 49.

Crayl said...

I read Dooce, but I like you better, Congratulations!

Merrie said...

You're in my top 10, sistah!

The Mom said...

I was all impressed that I was in the 30's and ALSO kicked ass! *high-fivin'* (if that's still cool).

;)

Mama2hre said...

Ha! That's great! Congratulations!

ciara said...

ppl like you better simply cos you aren't a sell out. you're still more approachable and funny as hell. i'm not one of her fans. think i read her blog all of two times, and i think that was two times too many. i guess i could be competition, but i'm afraid of that 'what goes out on the internet, STAYS out on the internet' hence my never talking about anything mind blowing or intelligent haha

Threeboys1mommy said...

Woopty Woot!!! Dooce is a doucher! Congrats Sue, you win... I bet it was that big pair of "sunglasses" that put you over the top.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Well I knew that....she just complains all the time.

You are an awesome read--I can't begin to tell you how many of your posts I have passed on :)

Congrats!

(Don't forget the little people now--little people being me the 5"2 Texan who might make the top 10,000 blogger list ;) )

McMommy said...

It brings a tear to my eye that I was the one who was able to deliver the good news to you....all future glasses of wine tonight dedicated to you, Ms.#11!!!!

Mama H said...

YEAH, you! That's awesome!!! Congrats!

Mel @ A Box of Chocolates said...

You crack me up!! You're in my reader and Dooce isn't so that automatically makes you cooler. Rock on.

Aubrey said...

YAY for you! I was going down the list last night and was so excited to see you on there! And 11th at that.

BTW, Dooce has nothing on you. To be totally honest, I hate her blog. SNORing.

Krystyn said...

Congrats! I don't know who Dooce is either! Oh, well! Better for you!

Barefoot in the Park said...

congrats congrats!

The Nice One said...

ROCK ON. That's awesome!

You know, you're cooler because you leave comments for the little people, like me, still. You don't forget us. You're awesome.

jaime said...

Sweet! I read Dooce once or twice...and that was enough. YOU, I have been back here over and over...nuff said? :)

And you can give a big shout out to BG who helped make this all possible too...heehee

Hope you had a great New Years!

lovemyspy said...

I have been following you for about a month and you rock!!! I have no idea how I found you but thank the Lord I did!

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Congrats to you. I only wish I could make A list. ;-)

Rose said...

I like your blog way more... and apparently other people agree!

Julie said...

Woohoo! You go girl!

Hey, stop by my blog if you have a second today. My friend Vinnie needs advice and you're just the woman to give it to him!

Tenakim said...

all of my bloggy friends are kicking ass and taking names! Way to go!!!

Ashley. Unscripted... said...

Woot!!!

I knew you were awesome from the first time I saw BG. Dooce may have all the money, but you've got BG and that's all that matters, right?

Rachel said...

congrats!!!

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

Congrats, Victorious One. I just did a post that touches on tell-all bloggers, so naturally Dooce came up. In the course of writing it I learned she's on to bigger(?) things -- a book of her blogging memoirs. Imagine.

Elisa said...

I, for one, don't like Dooce's blog, nor her writing style. I think you are much more deserving of a high position on that list. Congratulations!

* TONYA * said...

You go girl. As if we had any doubt you'd be way up there, just don't forget about us will you.

sista #2 said...

Poor Doocebag. Maybe next time she won't be on the list at all.

peace

Debbie said...

I don't get Dooce. I've tried a couple of times ... but I just don't get it.

Anna Lefler said...

Let me just add that it wouldn't hurt sistah to lighten those eyebrows a tad, either. (Igor!)

Just sayin'.

Good on you, H.A.S.! Rock it hard.

XO

jill jill bo bill said...

Dooce is poop at our house. Just sayin'.

Janah @ So Not Mom-a-licious said...

couldn't get into Dooce. so she could not even be on the list and it wouldn't matter to me. but that rocks that YOU are numero 11! rock it girl!

RenegadeMoms said...

Dooce makes me vomit in my mouth. We Pinch her on the regular in our Renegade neck of the woods.

I think I might love you and want to have a blog affair with you.

Erika said...

I googled Dooce's blog sucks and found this...she is not a talented writer and has an extremely annoying personality. Ugh...

gaohui said...

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.

laura linger said...

I hate her. She is everything that is odious in the blogging world: next to no talent, other than that for pimping out family members and self-promotion. I don't get why this person is such a cult of personality. She isn't funny, her husband looks like a total douche, she cannot handle criticism, she's self-serving, and she looks like she stinks of vagina. Too many talented people get overlooked in this world when the Dooces of the planet get all of the kudos, and it's unfair.

And yeah, I said that. She looks like her vagina stinks.
