Starting sometime last night, my blog started getting a lot of hits. By “a lot,” I mean more than three times its normal hits in a day. I also started noticing that a lot of the traffic was coming from Facebook and Twitter. So doing a bit of research, I discovered that Christopher Yuan, co-author or “Out of a Far Country,” tweeted a link to the first post I wrote reviewing that book and posted the same link to his Facebook page.
Honest review of ?#OutofaFarCountry? from a gay man who’s a self-proclaimed witch! – http://yuan2.us/29
I’ll be a bit honest, I’m a but curious and concerned why he felt it was necessary or appropriate to bring up the fact that I’m a witch, but I’m still thankful that he promoted my review (and I hope many of his readers read all the posts on the topic, not just the first and “flattering” post he linked to). After all, as one of his own commenters on Facebook said, “any press is good press.”
So to Christopher, I say thank you. To those of you who found my blog through Christopher, I say welcome. I hope you find what I wrote informative and thought-provoking, even if you don’t agree with me. And I hope you’ll stick around to read some of the other stuff I’ve written.
I plan on doing one last follow-up post on Christopher’s and his mother’s book, which I hope to have up later today. It’s something that caught my eye in one of the final chapters, and I want to talk about it.
