Allow me to toot my own horn for a second.
I am loved.
At least in Canada and the Russian Federation. And Slovakia. And certain parts of the United States. And by one lone person in Latvia.
One of my nuggets of genius over at the hockey place, concerning really bad hockey jerseys, was recently the subject of much talk. I was featured in the 11th Carnival of the NHL, hosted by the brilliant Jes Gölbez. I was also linked in some sort of online edition of the Toronto Star. Since then, my pageload numbers have skyrocketed. I typically average about 35 pageloads a day over there, but the last four days have been 118, 85, 285(!!) and 101. The Carnival, to which I submitted the article, helped a lot. I never could have imagined the explosion I got the next day when the Star found me and referenced my blog.
Unfortunately, I haven't been offered any MOWs or any book deals or any multi-million dollar product endorsement deals, but I'll take the attention while I can get it.
Now if there was only a way to get the newspapers to start talking about THIS blog, I'd be really happy.
