Shameless Self-Promotion Part II (OR false modesty part I)

Image hosting by PhotobucketAs we've already established, I would never, ever use this blog for selfish purposes, such as to get votes for blogging awards, and certainly would NEVER EVER EVER use it to meet men, such the one who tried to score a date by referring to this a bimbo blog. (For those of you who missed the episode, I believe the exact description of my "bimbo blog" was: a trite, incredibly mundane though seemingly clever sex-in-the-city-wanna-be series of posts.)

But I might, on the other hand, use it to help promote a starving unknown struggling young jewelry designer make her break into the Swedish handicrafts market. You might check out this link if you want to see some of the other things she does besides blogging.

I like your blog. I think you're clearly a good writer and an educated woman. However, I think you delude yourself into thinking you are not shamelessly self-promoting yourself via your blog. What is a blog, if not putting one's self in the spotlight, whether for the sake of vanity, the need for an audience, to support one's self-concept-- there are as many reasons as there are people. And, if someone chooses to monetize his blog, what is wrong with that? If others are willing to pay, then an even exchange is being made. The same with your own efforts. You blog; you hope you get dates. You're sounding a bit snippy today, so I think that you are being affected by the powerful transits that have come into play for the month. Hold on to your hat. It will be a roller coaster of emotions. Meow. /

Hey Curiosa, nice jewelry.

(Insult or compliment? Either should work out in my favor :-)
