Obscurity: is it the New Fame? Discuss.


You know who you are. There I was, watching all those athletes going for gold on the TV. Like Barack Obama, I said to myself: yes I can. I can do it. I was inspired.

But there’s always one person who spoils things for everyone else.

Trying to blend the ying of obscurity with the yang of worldwide fame isn’t easy. Especially when fame, as I have said before, means nothing to me. I was going for the clean sheet. The zero-tolerance approach to subscribers. If I could make a blog which nobody subscribed to, that would really be an achievement.
In fact, until a few days ago, I didn’t even know what a blog subscriber was.
But now those dreams are shattered.

Well, In for a penny, in for a pound. That’s what my old Grandad never used to say. So, I’m giving up the mad chase for obscurity and resigning myself to international acclaim and worldwide recognition. And the first step: get as many new blog subscribers as possible. So, all you existential vacationers out ther: please subscribe to my blog. No, I don’t know how to do it. Click on something. Add something to … er… some list or other. Whatever.

I’ll check again in a month or two. I expect great things. Do not disappoint me.
