Well… i`m not telling you why (let`s say there`s this friend of mine that wants to promote his weblog) but somehow i`ve managed to stumble upon Vincent McBurney`s 10 Unique ways to Promote Your Blog on ITtoolbox.
The guy`s so funny, i nearly laughed myself to death! So here they are, now go promote your blog ppl!
1. Do a live blogging YouTube nude streak onto the Superbowl arena.
2. Pretend you are a fake Walmart blog.
3. Do a series of trades to turn your house into one blue paper clip.
4. Hijack a combine harvester and cut an outline of your URL address into a corn field so it shows up on Google Earth.
5. Print off a blog post onto a very large piece of paper, hire a group of women over the age of 100 to stand in the crowd at Good Morning America holding up the sign.
6. Announce an attempt to swim around the world non-stop with your blog URL painted on your back. A shark cage is optional as a shark attack will get you a top listing on Digg.
7. Blog about bloggers who blog about bloggers who are blogging about the blogosphere. Be quick while it’s still untapped niche.
8. Create a fictitious blogger and make him/her your nemesis. Constantly attack each other is an escalating cycle of criticism and hatred that ultimately turns to violence. Kill off your nemesis blogger in a live blogging ultimate kick boxing event in a mystery Asian country.
9. Stow away on the space shuttle mission to service the Hubble Space Telescope. After the work on the Hubble is completed sneak out in a space suit and paint your URL in reverse onto the lens of the telescope. Make sure you use really small letters.
10. Buy a white mattress. Cut it in half. Cut holes in the sides for your arms and the bottom for your legs and leave one whole in the top for your head. Remove enough of the stuffing so you fit inside it. Print off your blog homepage onto two very large pieces of paper. Staple it to both sides of the mattress. Put the mattress on and stand on the busiest street in your home city. Leave in enough stuffing so it doesn’t hurt when teenagers start beating you.
And just to show you what a good guy i am, and how much i care about my readers, i`ll feed you with another 5 way, all of them unique (like the rest of them):
11. Go hack Google, now you can put you blog on the first page of every search result page. Imagine that!
12. Fetch a gas canister and a lighter (for God sake, make it a Zippo!) and go to the Major House in you city, now threat you`ll put yourself unless every citizen visits your blog (does anyone smells something burning?).
13. Instead of candies, give small tickets with your blog address written on it to children on Halloween night. Don`t just stand stuck in your house door, visit your neighbors too. I guarantee you`ll have a huge success.
14. Compose a song about how good your blog is, then go sing it out loud in some train/metro stations. I bet you`ll even earn some extra cash you can invest in the classic AdWords.
15. Send me a valid check… let`s say somewhere between 1000-5000$. I`ll do the rest.😀
