dooce almighty

42K comments on a single blog post begs attention. In the world where I work, it demands attention. So, the extraawesome Dooce broke through to my last week. Adfeed is a library of interesting advertising news stories/observations that I’ve bookmarked as I’ve wandered the world-wide-interweb. Dooce’s comment overload was definitely interesting.

My wife has been a Dooce fan for a year now. Her connection with Dooce and her writing style was pretty immediate. Dooce makes Sarabeth laugh, and if you know SB, then you know that her laughter is whole-hearted and infectious, so even though I hadn’t ever read her work, I’ve enjoyed Dooce a ton.

The reason so many folks were interested in commenting and commenting again.. and again… and again… on this one blog post: a Wii and Wii Fit give away. The kind folks at Nintendo recognized the persuasive influence earned by Dooce, so they found a way to work with her, and produce a huge benefit for them both. Dooce gave away five sets of this entertainment glory, and to be eligible all one had to do was leave a comment… or 20. There was no comment limit, just a time limit of roughly 48 hours. At that time Dooce’s mom picked 5 numbers between 1 and 42,232, producing 5 very happy, wii fit owning, Dooce fans.

Interesting, don’t you think? Newsworthy? I thought so, too. It also made me want to give away something, just for fun, via Logically, my thoughts went to lawn care. Alas, there is only so much dehydration a person can pack into a weekend. So, looking for a more climate controlled option (to be read, “sitting on the couch in my air conditioned den”) I’ve decided to give away a blog.

My give away will work like this: Leave a comment here on this post beteen the time of its publication and Sunday 6 p.m. cental time and you will be eligible to win a WordPress blog produced by me. So that we can stay legal, there will be no financial value placed with give-away, just one dude helping out another dude with a blog, perhaps your own domain name and some coaching/customization, that’s all I’m sayin’. Sweet Sarabeth will draw a number out of a hat, and we’ll post the winner here on Sunday evening.

Oh, and just for kicks, all comments need to contain a movie quote to be eligible for the drawing.

I’m out of words now…

  1. I could quote The Big Lebowski until the cows come home but, OK, here’s one for you…..”Why, oh why, didn’t I take the blue pill?”
