Blog My Book CONTEST! Results

You may remember my announcement at the beginning of January of the Blog My Book CONTEST! Well, the results are in and the winner is...envelope please...

Heaneyland!

Even though I know Francis, that does not disqualify him, nor did it prevent his site from referring quite a large number of hits to this little ol' blog. Francis will soon be the proud owner of an autographed copy of The Engaged Groom. His site is very funny, especially his "Six Things" cartoon. Francis, if you're out there, I can either mail you your copy or you can pick it up at the official, but belated, book release party I'm throwing on Wednesday, February 22 at a bar on the Lower East Side. (More details to follow.)

Honorable mentions:

Daniel Radosh, he who shares my concerns with saying thank you at the end of an interview.

Martin's Musings, who mused on my book a couple of times.

Gothamist actually drove the most traffic to my site, following a post they did about bloggers and books, but since I occasionally write for the blog it was disqualified.

Francis, your acceptance speech can be only thirty seconds.

Is there a point to this blog other than an orgy of self-indulgent yammerings about yourself and your book?

hey - someone just sent me a link to this blog. whomever just wrote the above comment it's totally true. most blogs have a point. this guy just shamelessly writes about his stupid book tour and how he gets quoted.

Y'all must not have bothered to check out the archives...his blog is what made the book in the first place. Excuse the man for having a little pride in his book.

hey reader and nick -- who held the gun to your heads and forced you to type in the url to get to this site? don't like it? move along. you'll find plenty of self-indulgent blogs out there, about 99.99% of them.

"reader," have some guts to use your real email.

I'm proud, nay, humbled to have helped contribute to sustaining the orgy of self-indulgent yammerings. Thank you.
