Pyramid of Blogs

Someone mentioned “voip blog” on irc and we were joking about what that meant, like maybe cold calling people to blog at them. I made some crack about getting all sorts of stereotypical blogger types (geeks, subculture victims, etc.) and telling them they’re doing VOIP blogging but actually having them do coldcall telemarketing. What to sell? Well, blogging itself! I thought we could have them sell “blogging kits” that included all kinds of useless crap and promised big profits from a home-based business. Ho ho ho. I even wrote celeb testimonial copy:

Hi. I’m Cory Doctorow. Many of you know me from my blog posts such as “Disney Dolls Again” and “Creative Commons Dog Toys”. Many of you have asked me: how can I be a Top Blogger? Well, the people at Blog Professionals Kit in a Box have a great answer.

Of course I’m way the hell behind:

  1. So that dream I had the other night about all of us being forced to blog for a living in a corporate cubicle setting was merely a psychic premonition, then. Excellent.
    Gotta go prep my Livejournal TPS report now. PROFIT PULLING MACHINE!


  2. Which reminds me. I keep hearing discussions with my company execs where they discuss how we are going to add “blogs” to our site. And I keep asking what exactly does that mean, blogging on our site? And the answer I get? “Well we can’t really say yet, but we are working on a deal with a company.”
    Huh? We are buying blogging? WTF?!?!?!
    I still cannot get a straight answer.
