All my life I’ve tried to create revelry and camaraderie by putting together contests where people could participate and compete in. I’ve seen others do this and have amazing success at it. But I… well… queue the violin:
I’m a blogger. By definition, that means I’m an attention whore. Search engines are to bloggers and web masters what tabloids are to Paris Hilton: the only way to ever really be seen, since outside of this most haven’t really done anything to garner attention.
