As you well know, MrZoot publishes all my entries for me during the day, thanks to our new fancy firewall here at work. Well today? I get this email:
My internet is down! this is from cell. Can u post a little on my blog? whenever u can. This sux! Have a great day! Pam
And I’m all “Yeah! Sure! Zoot to the rescue!” But then I’m all “Shit. I can’t see her blog, much less the blogger page for me to login at.” So, I call up (if by “call” you mean “email”) MrZoot and remind him that Pam is the person who recommended him a shoe place that would analyze his run and recommend a shoe for him. A shoe place and an experience he enjoyed thoroughly and bragged about to his family. Of course, it also allowed him to have this fun conversation:
“How did you hear about our store, Sir?”
“My wife’s blogfriend in Canada, of course. She told me about this store less than 2 miles from my front door. How do you usually get customers?”
So HE logged into blogger as ME, and published an entry as me, for her, on her blog, explaining her absence to her readers.
Not only is it all incredibly complicated? But its also very cool of him. So, lets take a moment and praise MrZoot- who not only keeps me active in the blogging world, but he keeps my blogfriends from having blog crisiseseseses (how the hell do you spell that?) as well.
And while we’re discussing absentee blogging? I’ve been guestblogging for Mike this week too. Go say “Hi.”
