SALON PUBLICITY

For a second straight week, the very-low traffic sports blog I run with Steven Taylor, Dallas Cowboys Football, garnered a link in Salon’s King Kaufman’s Sports Daily. Apparently, my publishing his interview question was slightly embarrasing, since journalists aren’t used to seeing the information-gathering part in print:

One funny thing that happened in the reporting of the blog column is that several of the bloggers whose opinions I solicited via e-mail reproduced my note to them in their blog. It was strange to happen upon my own question out in public like that. It felt a little like suddenly realizing I was walking down the street in my underwear. You’re not supposed to see that information-gathering part, where I’m going around asking dorky questions. I mean, it’s OK. It was actually a, for me, rare intelligent question, I think. It was just sort of startling and embarrrassing.

D’oh. Honestly, that aspect of things never occured to me.
