Fleeting Fame

I’m not going to lie: I like being the center of attention. I probably seem very quiet and demure within my office/cubicle/work setting, but I’m actually a very large ham. And a flirt. And quite loud and boisterous when the mood (or topic) strikes me.

It seems that I may now be at the tipping point of my internet popularity. The blogging equivalent of moving from the “C” list of actors up to the “B” list. I’m not going to be a Markos Moulitsas or a Jeff Jarvis tomorrow, but I’m getting there.

Two main factors effecting my relative relevance today: I’m mentioned in the ever-informative Church of the Customer podcast, and I’m quoted (more like paraphrased) in a ClickZ article on customer engagement.

I’m not willing to turn this blog into a fully-functioning mouthpiece/bully pulpit for online marketing just yet, though. I still love blogging about Muppets (see domain name), my wife, my daughter (Rae Rae) and anything else that moves me. I’m not one to confine my writing within a particular topic.

And I’m also no Matt Haughey. The guy runs three great blogs (PVRBlog, MetaFilter and A Whole Lotta Nothing) – you should check them out if you haven’t already. Now, I don’t claim to have as much free time or passion, but I’m keeping this blog, my linkblog and a very tenuous authorship on the Atlanta Metroblog and it’s a lot of work. Wasn’t blogging supposed to be fun?

In any event, I want to thank all the folks who link to me. I don’t have any idea why you come here, but I’ll keep up the shoddy work.

Maybe it’s the Haiku Generator, or my Homestar Runner theme for Sony Ericsson T610/T616 phones. Or maybe it’s all the trackbacks I leave on more popular blogs. Or, quite possibly, it’s sheer volume and Google. Perhaps I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve written enough posts and been spidered for so long that people have given up finding anything better.

Whatever the case, I’m going to enjoy my fleeting fame. Until I’m ready to delineate all my separate passions and annoyances onto their own separate channels, you’re stuck with one crowded yet multifaceted blog.

I am Mostly Muppet.
