Your five minutes of fame going on a hold

Well, thanks for all the great entries, there have been about 300 comments from you guys visiting this blog in the last 24 hrs. I unfortunately could only post a view, as this blog is just a small hobby. The response to the ’Your five minutes of fame’ idea and the stuff you wanted to have promoted is brilliant, though, and I might publish the one or other comment later. Please don’t enter any more thoughts, I won’t find the time to go through them all and post them.

As the traffic is still flowing, currently about 5000 unique visitors per day, I will come up with some new stunt soon.

Your five minutes of fame [6]: Suddenly fourty

I've earned my blogging stripes as a social/political commentator over the last 10 years and have decided to do something different. So I started a new blog:

I plan to apply the same kind of vulcan logic I applied to socio-political commentary to, well, a more diverse range of more personal and interesting things.

Your five minutes of fame [5]: Fiction Writing


Interesting experiment. I'm a fiction writer and occasional essayist living in the U.S.--I'm not selling anything. I have links to a few published stories on my web site, links to other literary-themed sites, and a more-or-less literary-themed blog at

If anyone wants to pass some time by reading short stories, please visit.
I look forward to reading about the results of your social experiment. Thank you.

Your five minutes of fame [4]: Finding Mr. Right

Dear Tobias- am certainly mesmerized by your offer. I would love to promote myself in two ways.I am an attractive 50 something looking to find the ultimate product...Mr. Right. If you can not support the finding of love what can you support? I am also I fiber artist that works making silk bowls and also collages using techniques and materials I learned about in Japan. I am just starting to write my blog to support everyone in the arts and get them to think a little about the world and the universe.

Your five minutes of fame [3]: Save my company

Hey Tobias! Let's see if this gets your attention. I own what was on its way to becoming a thriving business before I had a a deal go terribly wrong costing me everything and leaving me to start again. I have investors who are considering coming on board, but I had another, more creative idea as well. You seem to be someone who can appreciate one's creativity. I wrote a book titled; Save My Company, Buy This Book; A Business Guide to raise money and took some unique approaches to drive sales. Check out my story, if you don't mind, at:
and my blog, which really needs some traffic, at

I hope you don't mind lending a hand, or some traffic!

This is what the Birmingham post writes about a man who want to save his business by pre-selling a book about
how to save companies…

Your five minutes of fame [2]: Free the children

Hi ! i also found this blog by clicking the next blog button (can anyone really resist). I read your five minutes of fame idea, and thought, hey, what do i have to lose? Right now i'm just a 17 year old student, who just made my first blog yesterday. To provide some inspiration and some words to relate to, everyday, documenting my 2010 with pictures, quotes, and many rants:

There is one cause i have recenetly become almost obsessed about. I do love to share the little money i have( and you should to !) to cancer wards, make-a-wish foundation, sick kids, UNICEF. However, I have recently started to become more educated and involved in Child Labour. Amazing how more than 80% of my wardrobe was probably made by a child, who probably had no choice in it to begin with.

get involved ! Ask if the clothes you're about to purchase may be made in sweatshops. We can change that, because these children, and any other sweat shop workers deserve a future too.

Your five minutes of fame [1]: The hunger site

Hi! I just happened to find this (via next blog as you described) and couldn't resist the possibility of being the first one to leave my mark. I'm currently still a student, so generally I don't promote much, other than a positive attitude towards life (hopefully). But once my education is finished, I hope to go into the world and promote volunteering and other social work in an attempt to make the world a more beautiful place. As part of this, I am a follower of the hunger site and rainforest site...

The site is supported by various sponsors, which means that those who are interested only have to click the button and money from the sponsors will go to those in need.
I think this is a valuable investment of three seconds every day :) Thanks! xxxLisaK

Your five minutes of fame

Hei everyone!

As for some reason I get thousands of visitors to my blog every day via the ’next blog’ button since three days I gave a thought what to do with the traffic. Being an adman myself, placing random ads on the site is not an option (; As you guys visited here from 139 countries the last three days, targeted self promotion doesn’t make much sense either. So I decided to promote random people and their projects, thoughts or organizations. Naturally it must be something interesting to get posted here.

This is how the experiment goes:
You write some short description of yourself, your [non-profit] organization, your project or your thoughts. Then you comment your content to this post. If it is good stuff I will make an own blog post out of it, and link to the sites you mentioned. Or in other words, I give away this blog to your cause for a post, if you convince me. If you want me to add a picture to your post, add a link to the picture in the end of your comment, so that I can grab it.

Send me your stuff, I am curious to see what you want to have promoted!

ps/ If you are selling electronics from China or fake Viagra, it might be very unlikely to get a post… That’s why this action is moderated.

What’s up?

Something intersting happening on this blog… more than 12.000 unique visitors in 3 days, a significant increase. What brought you here, what’s up?
