Advanced Techniques in Blogging

There is no justice in the universe, and perhaps even less in the blogosphere. One of my duties during the Conservative Political Action Conference was to act as chaperone/tour guide to a former intern attending her first CPAC. An associate editor for a lifestyle magazine, she found herself being asked repeatedly, “Do you have a blog?”

So a week ago, she decided to start one, after soliciting advice from her “Illustrious Mentor” on installing SiteMeter, etc. And today, she got her first Instalanche — blogger slang for being linked by Professor Glenn Reynolds a/k/a “Instapundit.”

As I explained to her, it took Jammie Wearing Fool six months of blogging before he got his first ‘Lanche. Some guys blog for years and never get a ‘Lanche. Maybe I should get a new business card printed: “Illustrious Mentor.”
