National magazine wants your story

Attention Bloggers and Blogreaders:

Have you:

-Ever been fired for blogging about how you hated your job?

-Had a jealous ex blog about how bad you were in bed?

-Been blogstalked by internet weirdoes talking about how their profile pics made them want to touch their blankity-blanks?

If you answered "no", you're not posting often enough. But if you're like me and answered "yes" to any -- or in my case, all -- of these, here's your chance to tell someone other than your mom, facebook stalker, or roommates. A writer for a national magazine who is doing an article about internet privacy issues contacted me today to see if I could help her. After telling her of my harrowing adventures on blogspot (and a few of my best racist jokes), she asked if any of my friends or readers had any similarly interesting blog privacy stories. Because I never really read any of your posts, I told her I didn't know. But she sounded so cute on the phone, I couldn't let her down. So I'm doing this. A plug, of sorts.

Here it is:

If you'd like to share and potentially have your story published, email me or leave a comment with your contact info and I'll get her in touch with you.

Now, I know you don't really read our posts, but just because you're so honest doesn't mean I'm gonna help you out with a cute-sounding chick. That's like giving a bum twenty dollars just because he's holding a sign that says he needs beer money. Also, "Get her in touch with you" sounds a bit toooooooo inclusive. Heh.

Whenever an unnamed "national company/magazine/whatever" claims to want something from me, it makes me suspicious.

Becky Adnot said...

And just for clarification on that third point, these 'internet weirdos' want to touch their 'blankety-blanks' after looking at their OWN profile pics? Man, that IS weird.

Yeah I guess that would explain the lack of feedback I've gotten. For clarification it's Details magazine.

it just sounded like work and, you know, work sucks. Do you mean you haven't seen the video interview I posted with George W Bush, it was a posted on Youtube? I found out who the interviewer was and was pretty unsympathetic, anyway, he found me and came and abused me on my blog, but did so anonymously until I caught him out (which was, like, straight away.) It was the most hillarious experience I've had blogging yet. His comments are on the most recent post, and then on two other further down about him. If conservative alpha male football graduates do your head in, you'll love it.
