The only time in my life I've ever been relieved to find that I had low comment numbers on a blog post was yesterday. So shame on you if you didn't read it, because you'll probably have no idea what I was talking about. OHHHbut I'll explain. I wouldn't leave you hanging that bad.
Over the weekend I received an email to do some advertising on my blog (for money! Oh for the love of money.) My friends were over as I was checking me email. And we may or may not have been carousing. Anydrinkfest I eagerly (oh so eagerly!) replied to my email just to have my gmail go apesnap on me. So I googled this person's name who sent me the email and clicked on the link that brought me no where. All I could find was his facebook, linkdin, myspace. But then, oh then, I saw something about a virus. So I looked at it and behold! I found it, I caught him! This "man" was not a man, he was a virus (from which I'll with hold his name. Because I leaked it like whoa this weekend.) A virus that gives you all sorts of popups! I virus that is a nuisance, though not that bad.
I panicked and like any other good blogger I blogged about it immediately (after the headache subsided the next day). I titled the post 'I'll be damned, ________.' And damned was I when I received an email from him this morning. Damned was I when I rechecked my references. Damned was I when I realized you should never drink and read emails. Or research spam and viruses. Damned was I when I realized I lost my visions of laying in a bed of cash that I'd earned through blogging (without using Adsense!). Damnit.
But in all seriousness, I do owe this guy a sincere apology. It is totally not my style to slam someone's name, especially all over the www. But I really did think that his name was the name of a virus, so I didn't have any hesitation. I was sure satellites were watching in my windows all day, until I got his email. I felt like such a predator. Sorry, ______.
Now who wants their business in my sidebar???
