I have tried for months – MONTHS – to get my publicly pronounced idol, PZ Myers, to, if nothing else, notice that I exist!
I’ve mentioned him in countless blog entries, spammed his blog with my links (OK, so one per post isn’t quite spamming, but it should be enough), defended him in my own awesome ways (not that he needs it, he can certainly handle himself), and show him a tremendous amount of respect regularly.
He’s like in the Ivy League of bloggers, along with fellow scientist Phil Plait, and you’ve got to do something uber cool kick ass as hell to get him to notice you exist. For instance, an associate of mine, one Splendid Elles got his attention with an article on her local museum that creationists had invaded. I, on the other hand, am trying to get a date with the creation museum!
But I’m not about to write up something gigantic with custom pictures for a measly little twenty hits a day. I’m also not going to pay to get in that hack job of a “museum” for nothing. I’m happy with being able to slam the creationists, but that’s not enough for you, Myers, is it?
I’m at the end of my ideas. If I don’t get some attention soon from the number one blogger I know, I’m going to assplode! Or worse! I may even end up visiting the creation museum and doing some gigantic write up on every factual error while at the same time remaining family friendly enough to be able to market to everyone and not just the extreme atheist crowd who don’t mind cursing to hell and back.
Actually, I do plan on making it family friendly to show my family, but yeah.
To sum this up: read the title. Thanks.
Update: My begging paid off. Thanks for the notice, PZ! I feel special now. kthx.
Update 2: I changed the time zone so the comments got a bit screwed up. Sorry. If you comment, look for it near the top instead of at the bottom. Time zone is EDT, so yeah.
