With A Little Less Than Three Days Left…

The Blatant Self Promotion Tour has taken an ugly left turn onto The Information Superhighway into respectability. It would seem that almost overnight, I’ve become part of the Twitter Elite in Redondo Beach, CA. Of course, listening to others might have you believe that I’m the only one that tweets Redondo, and if you’ve ever had your Redondo tweeted, you know just how pleasurable that can be. I hope you find this amusing. I know I do 🙂

The Blatant Self Promotion Tour Continues!

This is pretty amazing. I’ve gotten to the point where now I feel it’s important to win a Shorty Award. I’ve got #11 noms in the #humor category, and haven’t broken into the top #25 yet. I believe I need to be in the top 3 to move on, therefore, No need to be humble at this point. So, my thinking again is, I post this, Twitter Tweets, people come here and read, and hopefully laugh. Doesn’t matter with or @, simply that you find my musings humorous. And coincidentally, my #muse just tweeted. Who knows, this whole social media thing might catch on after all….

Blatant Self Promotion

In an effort to increase my non existent traffic, I’ve decided that the quickest way to do that, is to get nominated for a Shorty Award, in the Humor category. How to do this?

<insert evil maniacal laugh here>

It turns out, that in order to win a humor award, you have to be funny. Or, hilarious. Or, quite possibly, outrageously hugetastic. And in this case, you have to do it in 140 characters or less. See my column on Twitter posted over at IDEA MASTERS if it’s up. If not, you must wait, as I don’t know how far ahead I’m over there, and I don’t have time to look.

Well, I do, but that’s another post at a different blog. In any case, my humorous attempt to solicit votes may fall on deaf ears, however, the circular nature of social media is that this link  will allow you to vote for me, if you so desire. Or even if you don’t, you will anyway. I think 🙂 What’s going to happen now you ask? Well, posting here, will tweet Twitter. And then those of you that follow me, will hopefully come here, and click the vote link, and I’ll be notified via tweet. Then I’ll tweet a thank you to those that made it here.

And maybe a few more people will listen to The Random Rant. And Laugh 🙂 Because you can’t listen to a ‘blog entry, you have to read it.

I’m Amped Now….

Yes, this is what we know to be identity thievery in the 21st Century. I found this in my archives from around ten years ago, maybe even before Yahoo ceased its print publication. That’s right. It’s an old conversation from Yahoo Messenger. Remember when that was a stand alone app?

That’s my story. Hope you enjoyed it. Soon to be a major motion picture.™
