P*** My Blog
September 18, 2006
Has anyone else apart from me been offered a great opportunity to increase traffic? Increase readership? Get your thoughts and ideas out there to a wider audience? I’d love to think it’s because of the quality of my writing and content but I’m getting more and more email from “publishers” wanting to distribute my content – for free! And it’s not all spam .. the latest email I got was from Blogburst
At its core, BlogBurst is a news service bringing quality blogs onto highly-trafficked, high-brand mainstream publisher sites like the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle and San Antonio-Express News.
After a flattering introduction I was invited to ask for an invitation to join the network however, on further reading it appears that after its beta phase Blogburst will be selling my content on via a subscription service to its very impressive readership list. Huh? I’m not sure who this might appeal to but I’d rather potter away here in my own little corner of the world where anyone can read what I write for free…I think I’m a long way away from needing an agent just yet and if anyone is going to make money off the back of my toiling it’s not going to be an anonymous syndicator proporting to dress it up as an opportunity I can’t miss.

Careful! MTV apparently owns the phrase “Pimp my …”
Thanks Damien…I wouldn’t want to be accused of republishing someone else’s material and profiting from it now would I 🙂
Nice one. Hits should increase with the new title!
Change it back. MTV can go and shite.
Pimp my pimp would make a good reality show, wouldn’t it?
“And you can see here we’ve given Leroy alloy teeth, a DVD player in the back of his head and a beautiful chrome finish”
Hey twenty – I think that would be great, but only if you were the host…I think a sheepskin three quarter length jacket would suit you
Like some kind of old style football manager?
em yes, Twenty…of course that’s what I was alluding to…do you have the ghetto gold to go with it though?
I’m not really a gold man, I have to say. It’s all a bit tacky.
yes of course…a man of exquisite taste…but what are the accessories du jour for the man about town (or a football pitch) in a three quarter length (bespoke of course) sheepskin coat?
A good question. One would have to wait and see what the coat attracts, I suppose.
