Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website, PlantingDandelions.com


If you build it, they will come

This was in my mailbox last night:

Hi, This message is intended for those over the age of 21. I just found your Motley Crue blog entry and I think you may be of some help to me. I'm reaching out to you on behalf of M80 & Bacardi Live regarding Bacardi Live Global Gathering 2006 featuring Tommy Lee, Papa Roach, Tiesto and more. Since you blogged about Motley Crue, I thought that you might be interested in posting the press release or related information on the event? You seem like a reputable influencer, so I think you'd be a big help to us.

Of all the hopes and ambitions I have secretly nestled in my bosom concerning what professional and personal opportunities this blog might usher into my life, this, I have to say, was not on my radar. In case you missed it, my "Motley Crue blog entry" was the one where I likened schlepping kids and their gear to being a roadie for Motley Crue.

Upon deeper reflection, though, I guess I can see the forces of destiny at work. Back in grade nine I used to wear little square metal badges of Vince Neil and Crue on the collar of my black Members Only jacket. (Speaking of which, where is Vince in the afore-mentioned line-up? I don't know if I can lend my endorsement if Vince is not on board). I guess even back then, I was a "reputable influencer."

Well, I had a reputation, anyhow.

The email goes on to hint that there might be free drinks in store in return for throwing my considerable weight around the blogosphere. Unfortunately, to whom much is given, much is also expected, and I cannot abuse the public trust in such a blatant example of payola. At least not one that doesn't involve cash.

But rock on, dudes, rock on.

Don't you love it when the PR folks do a Technorati keyword search but then just skim your entry for relevance!

I saw your post on BlogHer and came by to say "hi."
