Blog War Update

Well, with the help of my friends in the Digg community, I actually pulled ahead for a brief moment in yesterday’s visitor count.  But then the mob of angry housewives caught wind of it and banded together to push Karli’s numbers up over 400, lengthening her huge lead.  With only 2 days left, I’m running out of options.  I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet, but things are looking bleak.

If you want to help, go digg my story, or put a link on your blog or in your Facebook status.  At least I’ll go down swinging.

Can You Hear Me Now?

With my birthday last week, I’m feeling a little more conscious of my age than normal, but this helped. I’m not old yet, because I can still hear this annoying high-pitched sound. Are you old? Try the test and find out. Post a comment if you can hear it, too.

Fourth Rule of Blog War

Never underestimate the collective power of bored, internet-connected housewives, to band together in support of one of their own.

Things are not looking good, here. I could really use some assistance. I’m up against a full-blown mob of people supporting my wife, including members of my own family. I know Karli is cool, that’s why I married her, but come on! We’re family! They’re all out spreading the word through blog posts, comments, Facebook, email, telephone, telegraph, morse code, and who knows how else. They’re even offering prizes for visitors. Prizes!

So, if it’s not too much to ask, help a brother out. Send me some traffic through a blog post or tweet or Facebook status update. I guess it’s OK if Karli wins, but I can’t let her just destroy me! Help.

Third Rule of Blog War

If you go and sabotage your wife’s blog and change the redirect of her vanity URL to point to your blog instead, be prepared to have a very upset wife on your hands.  You may want to consider the fact that if victory means you’ll be sleeping on the couch for a month, you can hardly call that a victory.  A close look at priorities may be in order.

Second Rule of Blog War

If your husband gets you a vanity URL for your birthday and redirects it to your blog, make sure you remember that he still owns that URL and can change the redirect to his own blog at will.  Dirty, I know.
