So I don't know if all y'all know this, but I'm kind of a big deal.
My other blog, Putting Weird Things in Coffee, continues to soar in popularity, bringing me the sweet thrill of hollow attention.
Today it's featured on The Seattle Times' coffee blog (of course the Seattle Times would have a whole blog devoted to coffee). Also, it seems that Spanish people love it; I don't understand half of the incoming links. Like this site, which is apparently very popular somewhere, and even comes with its own PWTIC illustration:
Reactions from my Spanish fans:
I've also done a few interviews with reporters. And one with a shock jock. 96.5 The Buzz in Kansas City had me on the Church of Lazlo show. This was my first live radio (or any media) interview ever, so I really didn't know what the hell I was doing. I sound mumbly and boring, and I accidentally lied at one point, but while the interview took a few weird turns, I think I managed to not let them make me come across like a complete freak. Find it here if you really wanna put yourself through that.
I am also happy to report my first financial benefit from the blog too. I threw up a Paypal donation link instead of putting Adsense on there (which I kinda regret now), and one very kind person took the "every cent helps" plea literally. I'm one cent richer, motherfuckers.
By the way, yes, it has gone to my head. And yes I am a complete sellout. If you're not famous, a blabbering sycophant, and/or a member of my entourage, we are no longer friends.
(In case it's not clear, I am being sarcastic. All this attention feels very strange to me, especially given how gross and stupid the whole idea of Putting Weird Things in Coffee is. I figured that it might catch on with some stranger internet folk, but the more mainstream attention is messed up. What is wrong with people? But hey, I'm just gonna enjoy this and and all the other ch-ch-changes going on right now.)
