Duncan Embarrassed in Store by Wee Cock

by duncanr

popped round to see a blogging mate on Saturday – well, when I say ‘popped round’ what I actually mean is that I drove 1.1/2 hours (o.k. I know it should have taken longer, but I cut a few corners, ignored some red lights, and broke a speed limit or two but, hey, that’s just between you and me – don’t go dobbin me in to the cops)

his latest blog post is a fictitious (i.e., made up) account of my visit

a while back, nobbly turned the spotlight on the League of Mental Men. If you haven’t visited their blog yet, check it out now – their latest offering is a riveting account of Hitler’s last hours in his bunker – click HERE

How NOT to Increase Site Visits

by duncanr

green-business-graph200bloggers have one thing in common – we want people to read the stuff we put out there

there are various suggested ways to attract and retain readers to one’s blog

however, we at madhatters do not intend to follow the example of other bloggers desperate to drive traffic to their site – – and wish to make it categorically clear that we (currently) have no plans to murder ratty in some cheap ploy to attract readers to our blog

Something to Read – Men and Menstruation

by duncanr

My recommended blog for you to read this weekend is –

Have no fear, marvellous and trusting Listener: I am not going to go all feminist on you, or start flinging tampons around or smearing menstrual blood up the side of public buildings. I am merely going to make some keen observations on the age-old topic that never ceases to amuse and perplex me: the curious relationship between men and the monthlies.


Read the rest of Becky’s post here –

and after your done reading that, read her posts on giving up booze for a month (, and her post on BT’s abysmal customer service (

Something to Read – My Kids have the Best Dad

by duncanr

A few weeks ago, I started a new feature on Madhatters – recommending another blog for folk to explore over the weekend

best-dad-clipartThis week I’m featuring a blog by a woman who, with her husband, has helped bring up 19 children – {and I thought bringing up two was hard work)

In this post, she pays tribute to her husband, Raymond, for the part he has played in being a dad to all these kids –

Be sure to also read the ‘About’ section of her – “Raising 5 Kids With Disabilities And Remaining Sane Blog” – click here – – then take the time to read more of Linda Petersen’s blog !

Tempus Fucken Fugit

Screen shot 2013-05-20 at 20.04.03WordPress sent us this message today

Hard to believe it is 6 years since we started Madhatters

In that time we have put up 8,940 posts (an average of 4 posts per day) and received over 1 million (1,093,094) views – and all without once ever being ‘Freshly Pressed’ (stick that up your arse, WordPress!)

My thanks to my fellow authors on madhatters, both present (Nobbly, Ratty, Uniscikill) and past (Noseycow, and Julie) and all who have supported us by reading and commenting on our nonsense over the years !
