Things I Do When I’m Not Spreading Outright Lies And False Information

Things I Do When I’m Not Spreading Outright Lies And False Information

  1. Linkbait people for fun and profit.
  2. Stand in between you and a passage and demand that you give me an answer to a riddle, and if you don’t get it right, then you can’t pass by.
  3. Tease my upcoming ebook project.
  4. Live under a bridge until I get my self-respect back.
  5. Steppers!
  6. Build stuff for the giant cats who share my under-bridge home.
  7. Try to decide if I should tell you the title of the ebook project.
  8. Try to figure out how to set up an affiliate program.
  9. Figure out who I should invite to my marshmallow roast.
  10. Decide that I will tell you this much: number 9 is a hint to what the ebook project is going to be.

    Dammit, so you’re the one stopping me passing? I mean, I’m pretty crap at riddles, but this is getting ridiculous.

    Good luck with the e-book project, I can’t wait. Well, I can, but I don’t want to.

    Now I will have that song stuck in my head all day. Damn you Anna… and Dora!
    I was a little late to that party, but truly you can’t be accused of spreading outright lies and false information if no one is willing to give you the truth.
    That’s just my opinion.

    I don’t think it can be linkbait if you don’t actually link. I mean, you didn’t link to us, did you?

    They sell these really HUGE marshmallows (I think they’re called campfire marshmallows) that are like the size of four or five regular marshamallows.

    Well, even under-bridge giant cats need an empire to rule.

    Well, how can you have a marshmallow roast if you don’t bring marshmallows?

    I can’t wait for the eBook.

    I thought for sure you’d be starting a website offering to pay your writers in day old doughnuts and lint because that’s totally acceptable. 🙂

    Or coffee and cupcakes, since that’s all they seem to desire anyway.

    Hopefully it’s not changing your status update to raise “awareness” for something. Because I hate that! My list is up:


    I’m hoping I’ve returned to blogging for more than a week, but one can never make promises.

  16. Dear Linkbaiting Troll,

    Keep up the good work. I think I see some puppies that need a good kicking around my house. Send them a virtual kick from California. And have a nice day. Feeling kind of Grinchy today….Made a list, “Ten Things I Hate About Christmas.”

    Later. I won’t actually kick the puppies, but I might……make a roast beef sandwich…filling the kitchen with succulent aromas….and eat it veryyyy, verryyyyy, slowly, ignoring the miserable dogs milling around my feet.

    I’ve heard good things about E-Junkie’s cart & affiliate setup: http://www.e-junkie.com/ Not that I’ve done anything like that before, just that a number of people who are pretty sharp seem to use it.

    Best of luck! May many goats come your way! May your cauldron be full!

    Oh wait, I think that cauldron thing what you say to witches. Sorry.

    Can I get married in your backyard and will you give me one of your lace tablecloths to wear, and maybe I could pick a few flowers from your garden too? Oh, and you do such nice work on here, I bet you could design AWESOME invitations. Will be waiting by the phone for the invite to our weekend filled with marshmallows, Diet Coke, massages. I already have my thrift shop wardrobe with tons of kicky stuff!!! It will be such fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can revel in how speshul we are and broadcast it to the entire network of boring old poor women that live in gross places like, oh, I don’t know…FLYOVER country.

    Calling paying $1 per post “not paying” is not that much of an outright lie. It sounds accurate to me, since I don’t consider $1 real money for a blog post, but more likely a sneaky way to avoid saying “We don’t pay.” My question is: do they write a $1 cheque each time or send an $8 cheque for the month if you write two posts per week?
