The Non-Boxing Boxing Round Up

Hey guys hope you had a good Christmas, and got some stuff you wanted. I'm still here so I'm guessing somebody didn't. Today is my the birthday of two of my nieces, I wasn't sure how old they are, and I'm still not, but I'm 80% sure that they are now 15 and 10. I could be wrong. Anyway, here's your round up for last week. Complete with gratuitous amounts of plugging, and general whoring.

On Tuesday I talked about how I'm actually kinda confident in my writing, in response to Anne questioning my confidence. While I might not have much confidence outside of writing, or much confidence to try and sell my writing (say through freelance journalism or some other system where you get paid to write) writing has become something I've become kind of confident in.

On Wednesday I paid tribute to a Twitter (Poor__Leno, that's two underscores folks) and Blogger (sauceattack.blogspot.com) friend of mine. He was without a computer but was still tweeting. I felt that A) people needed to see his writing, and B) he needed a break, and I wanted to do something nice for him. I mention his blog as well as his Twitter because after this post, and the comments made, he has indeed updated. He finds it a pain to update through his iPhone though or whatever i device he has.

On Thursday I celebrated the fact that I had finally written another chapter in my book. Although it was not as long as previously thought, and again I can only apologise for my moment of retardation. I also asked for a spot of advice on writing, and got some good answers. Yay.

Friday I plugged/advertised/whatever you want to call it the book "The Missing Link" by the boys of A Beer For The Shower. I am going to do so again here. Seriously, it's a great book, and it's cheap. Check it out. Hell its now EVEN CHEAPER than it was when I bought it(Amazon says it's free O_O That's no way to make money fellas.). I now wish I had waited, but eh. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006NUAQNC is the link for Americanos and http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Missing-Link-ebook/dp/B006NUAQNC/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_t_1 for me fellow British chums. Again, advertised as free. What the actual fuck? Anyway, hopefully they are actually giving it away and I'm not about to rob them of a lot of money.  MOVING ON.

Saturday I had another plug. Which will also be another plug again. This time for a good cause. Jessie, most of you who've read me a while may know that name, for she is my bestest of the bestest best friends evar, has started her own blog. The Constantinople Express. Some of you were very lovely and have followed her, but Saturday is a slow day for readers, so I'm appealing yet again. Please follow this fine young lady. If not for her, then for me, your lord and master.

Sunday (Which was Christmas of course) I just shared a bit of what happened with me at Christmas. Sadly no one did throw a punch (that I know of) so according to my tweet that it's not Christmas until someone throws a punch, I technically had no Christmas.

Anyway, now I think about it, it is still technically the holidays, so viewership may still be low. I'll have to find some other way to plug Jessie's blog at a later date.

I smell a guest post. Or maybe it's just the air freshener.

  2. LOL thank you for plugging my blog again :P *feels honoured* I think perhaps I just should break in to peoples houses, put a gun to their head and tell em to read it.... Or write a post about Justin Bieber, Glee and X-Factor... Yeah pretty sure the tags would get me some epic reader numbers :P

  3. @Jessie you get one more plug tomorrow and some more mentions this week, but I think tomorrow is the last time I'll actually give the link. Don't really want to piss everyone off, plus by then everyone who would see it would have seen it. I hadn't considered writing the most generic post possible in order to gain fans. For that though you would also need to use Twitter, and bombard your tweet about your post with hashtags about Bieber Glee and X-Factor. I can't believe I got someone who likes JB following me because I made a Bieber joke they didn't understand.

  5. Great round up, Mark.

    I got all super serious on my blog today, then I remembered absolutely nobody will read it because we're still technically on a holiday. Whoops.

    And I found a new blog to read! Absolutely delightful when that happens.

    Enjoy your day.

  7. Yeah views will probably still be quite low but I doubt people will get pissed off with you if you mention the link again. They'll either click it or ignore it lol

  8. @Charlotte I did indeed, thank you very much.

    @B Thanks. Some people are still reading and writing despite the holidays.

    @Astra Ta ^^

    @Hazel lol well I have one more mention tomorrow but I plan for that to be it for a while. Views have been a bit lower but I don't think it's totally related to the holiday period -_-

  9. I dunno, you could just add a little blurb about her blog at the end of a post every now and then. Or say something about her latest, something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Henry I'll more than likely be adopting that approach. If she makes a post I think people will want to read, I will be all over mentioning it, but people have complained about me over-mentioning things before. Still, my blog I can do what the hell I want.

  11. Was a nice week. I had lots of fun.

  12. Again, thanks for the plug! Also, a lot of searching has helped us out, and now if you search for the Missing Link, we're the second result (last I checked). Also, the day after Christmas is apparently a free sale, which is great for numbers as long as those numbers don't include dollar signs. But hey, we aren't in this for the money.

  13. @My 2 Pesos I'm glad :)

    @ABFTS Ahhh If I had known that I would have gone mental getting other books too. I'm glad that you guys have moved up the list, here's hoping there's continued success. It's also good you aren't in it for the money :)

  18. I got nothing for Christmas. Unless you count stuff from Steam.

  19. @Marco Walter Thanks. I'm proud of me too.

    @Interwebs Fails No one says no to free stuff.

    @R.gers I think that counts.
