My Master Plan for Total World Domination

I just finished up another block of tests on Friday and decided to celebrate by taking some time this week to promote the blog a little.

My master plan -- though shameless and totally void of social graces – has been to email a few other medical bloggers (most of whom don’t know me from Adam) to beg, plead, grovel (take your pick) for a link back to this site in hopes that I might lure a few of their readers into my web of deceit and corruption.

This has proven to be more time consuming than I first anticipated, however, I believe it is turning out to be a worthwhile effort…
  • Several unsuspecting fools kind souls have actually taken pity on my plight and added my link to their sidebar

  • A few even took the time to offer words of encouragement and advice on both blogging and medical school (Much appreciated.)

  • Many of you assured me that Mom would eventually come around

  • And, as expected, the more perceptive among you totally ignored me (sob)

To those of you who have honored me with a link on your blogroll, thank you so much. It is greatly appreciated and I will be forever in your debt. Any moment now, I expect the floodgates to open and my readership of 1 to skyrocket to the lofty heights of 4 or – dare I speak it aloud -- maybe even 5? (Be still my heart.)

I’m not through cultivating my own blogroll and will probably send out a few more emails as I come across interesting blogs. If I’ve somehow overlooked your blog, feel free to drop me an email at aneumed (at) yahoo (dot) com and I will gladly add you to the mix.

(Update: Neumed has just been informed that his 1 daily visitor is actually a spambot and not a human being. Sources close to the fledgling blogger indicate that he may be attempting to overdose on mass quantities of Little Debbie snack cakes. We will continue to monitor this situation and we’ll bring you the latest updates as they become available.)

I am NOT a spambot. I am a cyborg made by Bolivia bent on the destruction of all Egyptians.

DON'T call me a spambot any more or you will bear the consequences.

Neumed said...

A thousand apologies ankh be gone 2000. To us humans, you highly advanced mechanized lifeforms all look like delicious sandwich meat.

Now, who ate all the Nutter Butters?

Actually, it was only dumb luck that got me to see your message. It somehow got diverted to my spam filter. I rarely look in there, but for some reason, I did today, four hours after you sent the message...

I take that as an omen, so I will add you to my blogroll, and come back and see what's going on...

I like the mix of humor with an occassional dose of reality...

Hi John, Thank you for the link and the comment. I live on dumb luck.

Nurse K said...

Quick new blogger advice---Send links about SPECIFIC posts to bloggers who might be interested. Don't just spam everyone with "link my blog." Yawn. Best case scenario, send a link to one person. Not everyone wants to link the same thing.

Neumed said...

That's a good idea, Nurse K. Thanks.

Sooooo, your compliment was just a shameless ruse to woo, and ingratiate yourself onto my blogroll? You won me over as soon as I saw your photo and your about write up. I hope you don't mind, but I did put you on my sidebar. :) Thank you too, for the kind words.

Neumed said...

Neumed is incorrigible. :o)

Chrysalis Angel said...

We'll get along famously then. ha,ha.

Life sometimes interferes with prompt responses to blogs, but I'm adding you to my blogroll today. Hope you'll consider adding my site to your list. Thank you. All good wishes for great fun and enlightenment with your blog adventures.

Onehealthpro said...

Sorry. I've made numerous attempts to post your link and it isn't working. Any suggestions?

Neumed said...

Hi OneHealthPro, Thanks for trying to add me to your sidebar. I'm not familiar with Typepad, but I assume it has a form similar to Blogger. With Blogger, the only thing you have to watch is that when you copy and paste the URL, you don't enter http:// twice.

If you give me more details of what exactly is happening, I may be able to see the problem.

The typing monkeys over at The Dragonfly Initiative have added you to the sidebar links, so the readership of 5 may see it.

Neumed said...

Thanks Dragonfly, I wish I had typing monkeys.

frylime said...

that chick who has a crush on you is totally hot. my advice, get yourself a fine looking nurse about third or fourth year who wants kids and marry her. she will remain amazed at your doctoring skills etc... if you marry another doctor then you will never impress her.

Neumed said...

frylime: Thanks for the link. Hang in there, this year is almost over.

911doc: It's doubtful that anyone will ever be amazed at Neumed's doctoring skills, but he never fails to impress the ladies (if you know what I mean).

>>>>first year RN very impressed....and I linked to you...love the blog

Neumed said...

Hi Kim, Thanks for adding me to your sidebar. I've added you, as well. You've got a great blog. Everybody needs to check it out.
