I think I'm supposed to have a picture taken of me getting out of a car without any underwear on, or maybe be in a movie with one of the people from Survivor, but my ad on kijiji has gone CA-RAZY.
If you type "snowblower" into facebook, over 25,000 people have linked to my ad. Let me put that into perspective: if everyone in my hometown had linked to my ad, they'd have to recruit another 20,000 from neighbouring communities to finish off.
And as of 9:44 PM, I've got 129,462 views on the ad. To put that into perspective, that's more people than were reported for the metropolitan area that I live in (2006).
I've done an interview on CBC Radio (with another one possibly tomorrow for TV), an interview with www.yousuckatkijiji.com (which was an unexpected delight), a short interview with the local paper (that may or may not see print), and am lined up to do another radio spot in the morning and two TV spots in the afternoon.
I feel like I should use this newfound power and fame to do something worthy. But instead I'm just going to continue to try to get people to buy my snowblower.
I got an email from Kijiji earlier to let me know they were going to deactivate my ad, I'm guessing because there was no way I would still have it with 60K hits. Just happened to find the email in the massive pile I have building up. (EDIT: Forgot to write that I clicked the link and saved the ad - thanks HappyCho)
I may share a few of the emails I've gotten later - almost all of them give me warm fuzzies except for that one jerk (you know who you are, but you aren't reading this because you're a jerk and I know it), and I've got a few nibbles but no bites yet.
Sooooo anyway, just keeping ya'll who happen to be reading this posted.
