Candy Minx Does Guy Kawasaki

These are pictures of postcards I have made to start a blog frenzy. I'm mailing them out. Dropping them at coffee shops, galleries, hair salons...why? I'm going to be a blog pimp.

Guy Kawasaki wants to be in the top ten linked blog at technorati. So do I. So I am taking him on. It took me about an hour to figure out how to embed a technorati site meter. I am a techno peasant but I still want to be a playah. Who is Guy Kawasaki you ask...he is market business guru, famous for being an Apple evangelist. I too am an apple fangal. No big whoop. I'm just feeling macho.

Kawasaki has over 3,000 sites linking him. He is ranked #44. I am ranked 1,192,043( 0 links, 0 sites) in Technoratis rating system at this posting. I made all kinds of mail-outs and miniture pieces of art work to mail and pass out to people in Vancouver, Chicago, New York, Toronto...I wonder if anyone will stumble to this blog and link me to their blog...? I figure I need 4,000 folks to link me to their blogs.

Mr. Kawasaki posted a poem (I can't link it or it will help him!) that was written to keep business executives humble. The theme, everyone is replaceable. His purpose for posting this "humple pie poem" was for bloggers so their heads should remember not to get swollen. Bloggers shouldn't be conceited, they can be replaced. Kawasaki gets over 7,000 hits some days, and so far only two people posted a comment that we found that poem distasteful. You can read both the poem and the responses if you are inclined. I like his spunk...one he wants us all to remember that our blogs are nothing and two his ratings move him, inspire him. He desires to be number one. I just want to play too. All in good fun. Can a bimbo who can barely figure out how to load technocrati to her template get more links than Superblogger-business guru? I realize the futility of this challenge...what do you think?

Why should you link me to your blog? I've only had a blog for a couple months, I've only owned a computer for a few months. I don't even have much to say but I want some sport. If one were to take Kawasaki's self help business manuals to heart they might even say "that girl has spunk". My blog doesn't have a snappy theme or marketing strategy just the idea of the poet, misfit, artist, alienated, lost, flaneur, the hunter-gatherer, nature, okay...er ah-silliness...no I am not out to make a zillion dollars, business blogs have that covered...and I have Kawasaki linked to me...after that corporate themed poem...I just want to shout it out...

People are not replaceable...

Bring it on!

I have no doubt you will be the most linked to blog soon enough....and when you're at the top, don't forget those of us still languishing in the small circle of friends category (apologies to Phil Ochs).

ha ha I think I'm funny. That is always scary when I have a glass of champagne and think I'm funny. Hey babe, can you re-link me...because I don't think formerly linked gets recorded till I signed on to technorati. And yes, I will always love Yooouuuu....

Um I am linked to a few porn sites, but hey, I'm gonna take it. I just feel bad for their traffic if they come here thinking they are getting naughty bits and I am rambling about Plato, astronomy, farming and world peace. Hello! Come on that's hot.

Candy,

I don't want to be number 1. I just want to be in the top 10.

Guy

Hi Guy wow really terrific of you to drop by. We have something in common, we both want to be in the top 10...there should be room for both of us? NO?

I am working on a surprise tactic right now!

I know this is a friend playing a trick on me, like as if Guy really has time to stop in for a chat...

...but a girl can dream...and paint:)
