This is kinda cool

One of the fun things about having a blog is that if you create something amusing or interesting, and have a minimum threshold of readers, your work can get amplified by other sources. A juicy post from an insignificant blog can be read by tens of thousands within a day, if it gets a push from the right people. It hasn't happened to me too often (and never in a very big way), but when it does it's exciting. Even though my blog is still mired in lameness right now, the Most Annoying Canadian competion has gained this sort of momentum. So much so that it's even broken the bounds of the blogosphere, thanks to a link on NealeNews and many widely-visited blogs. I'm going to be interviewed on a Calgary radio talk show this afternoon. Surely a publishing contract and a cross-country speaking tour are only a matter of time.

It'll be at 4:00 Eastern and you can listen to it on the internet by following the link on the top left of their page. But you probably shouldn't. I don't want anyone to hear me choke...

UPDATE: I didn't choke too bad, but possibly I shouldn't have been so wired on coffee. They said my site name wrong at the beginning but I corrected it and enjoyed a measurable (though not spectacular) spike in hits.

UPDATE II: It seems most of the new visitors voted for the Helpful Canadian Tire Guy, because he's shot into a commanding lead in the poll.
