Greetings, Winnipeg Free Press readers! My name is James Howard, and I run a halfway decent blog with an interesting name.
No doubt many of you arrived here after reading Bartley Kives' column for today; I only found out about it at work this morning when my mother phoned, read me the first sentence, then asked "Slurpees and Murder... that is you, right?"
It's good to be recognized.
Go me! I'm in the broadsheet! Well, I mean, I'm not in the paper -- it doesn't mention my name or anything, so my bragging options are kind of limited -- but my blog was alluded to in passing, and that was certainly a pleasant surprise.
I'm even mentioned in the same breath as some particularly outstanding luminaries of the field; granted, that breath is spent explaining that I'm boring and puerile when compared to them, but hey. I'm not mad at that, that's a reasonable assessment. These are trained professionals I'm being contrasted against here, legitimate journalists and politicians, so they know what they're doing and they're very good at it. And after all, there only were four sites mentioned by name; I'm pretty accustomed to getting fourth place, so I figure I'll take it.
I got complimented plenty, right? Clever title aside, my blog was described as... sobering, and... 'encapsulates the notion' no wait I think he's talking about the title again there... unconscionable?
Whatever! It's got an awesome name, that's the important thing. Thanks for the mention, Bartley Kives!
