But maybe we’re thinking of it the wrong way. Have you ever stopped to read the spam those robots worked so hard to prepare for you? Well, I do and I’m glad. Here’s why:
It’s been an awesome 6 months so far, thanks to the IBMP readers. The blog is growing and getting more recognition. One important group whose attention IBMP has captured is known as the Comment Spammers. What is comment spam? If you have a blog you know these guys: they clog up our reader comments with ads disguised (poorly) as compliments. They’re hoping you’ll be so thrilled by the awesome review of your blog that you’ll click on the link they so conveniently supply and then, still drunk on the sweet antifreeze of their complimentary comment, you’ll want to give them your credit card to purchase some crap that you’ll probably never receive.
Most of the time our spam checkers catch them before they go live so readers don’t get to see them, which in some ways is a shame because they’re usually so lame that they’re pretty funny.
But some day, sooner rather than later, I want to sell the IBMP book, and one thing agents and editors love to see is strong critical acclaim for the work. So I now temporarily shed my charming, really sexy and truly genuine modesty in order to let these comment spammers speak on my behalf.
Critics from around the world agree:
I’ve Become My Parents is the Comment Spammers’ smash hit of the century!

“Customers that are scout’s honour agitated here speeds that a viewer can discern their locale, necessary to consider how self-indulgent the servers are.”
Translation: “Wow, IBMP is totally awesome. While I’m usually completely self-indulgent, I’d love to be your server. Scout’s honour.”

(OK, we don’t exactly know what that means but we’re pretty sure it says, “Try the olives, they’re fresh off the trees. Oh, and IBMP is good.”)

“Justin Bieber and Selena tit poped out you can see this @ my web site”
With critical acclaim like that, who wouldn’t want to publish I’ve Become My Parents, purchase the film and TV rights, action figures, line of children’s underwear, bobble heads, snow blowers, Lego series, IBMP Easy Bake Oven, bottle openers, multi-vitamins, doggie sweaters, haemorrhoid cream, electric garage door openers, fireplace sweepers, and Toddler Tantrum Emergency Kits?
OK, I may be getting a bit ahead of myself; I don’t even have the doggie sweaters designed yet.
Fellow bloggers, feel free to provide some examples of critical acclaim for your blogs below. I’m guessing that I’m not the only one the spammers like…
