So, I think it’s about time for another self-promotion thread. What say you?
If you maintain a blog or other site that you want to tell us about, now’s the time! Feel free to post a comment telling us about yourself and your site: who you are, what you write about, and why we should be interested. Atheist-themed sites are of course preferred, though all comers are welcome.
If you’ve participated in past self-promotion threads, you’re welcome to do so again. However, this time I’m going to change the rules a little bit: since I like to see creativity and good writing, I’m asking that you link not to your site in general, but a specific, recent post of yours that you’re particularly proud of, that best demonstrates your talents, or that sums up what your blog is all about. As always, the most interesting entrants may wind up on my blogroll, so put your best foot forward!
Also, while we’re on the topic, I’m putting out a call for help to readers. This past week, a bunch of my favorite bloggers squared off in a fundraising challenge for Camp Quest, the summer camp for kids from humanist and nontheist families. On one side was the evil overlord himself, P.Z. Myers; on the other, a tag-team of Greta Christina, Hemant Mehta, Jen McCreight and J.T. Eberhard of the Secular Student Alliance, competing to see who could be the first to raise $5,000.
Well, PZ won the first round much too easily. But atheists, as we all know, fight dirty. That’s why the anti-PZ team has raised the stakes, not just to a fixed amount but to whoever can raise the most by June 1… and they’ve recruited some new bloggers to join their side, including yours truly.
Since it was already four against one and the side with four is now adding even more people, some of you might wonder: isn’t this cheating? And my answer to that is: Yes. Yes, it is. It is brazen, shameless cheating. Fortunately, since I’m an atheist, I’m not bound by petty notions of right and wrong – not when there’s something more important at stake, like blog bragging rights!
Frankly, I’ll be surprised if we win this one. PZ and his legions of tentacled minions make for a formidable adversary. But I don’t intend to go down without a fight. Let’s show that godless cephalopod-lover that he can’t push the rest of us around! I’m not saying that I’ll look more favorably on your self-promotion comment if you also make a donation to the challenge… but maybe I am saying that.
