Shameless Self-Promotion

by Nathan Hamm on 10/20/2004 · 3 comments

First off, for those who don’t read my other site, check this out. It’s hilarious.

Now, a bit of a confession. When I find these kinds of things outside of my normal rounds of reading, I hold them kind of close to my chest until I decide where to try to dish them out in comments sections or trackbacks.

Well, I doled it out to Bill because it seemed right up his alley and fit with the post. And also, this man wrote the book on guerilla self-promotion. Now, I didn’t follow his artful technique to a “t,” but shouldn’t I get a cookie? After all, a name without a link is just a name. (Incidentally, I have a bad habit of screwing up the link to the site in my comments only on INDC — it’s a freakin’ curse or something).

Either way, I reiterate, this might be the funniest thing I’ve seen all campaign season. If it’s good enough for the QOAE, it’s good enough for all of you.

Hmmm. Actually, you didn’t follow my comment spam technique very well – should have linked to your post, which I would have followed to the ha-ha link. Then I would have given a hat tip back to the post.

My bad for not recognizing you as a blogger and hotlinking your name, though.

I know, I know. I have something that keeps me from following rules correctly, no matter how well written they are.

Honestly, not a big deal at all. The pupil still has much to learn.

Oh, and to make matters worse, I am torn between promoting this site, the one I’ve invested more time into, or the other one. So, I sometimes will specifically avoid the comment spamming with links to that site to get credit coming to this one. I’m weird that way.
