My Brush With Insta-Greatness

So because I am a dork and a loser, here I was wasting my Friday night farting around online and I decided to check my name on the Yahoo Search engine, when lo & behold, I had an Instapundit mention way back in 2002! How funny that just today I was whining to Jeff Atrocity about my vain attempts at blog whoring the great one...

BRILL'S CONTENT from beyond the grave. Well, sort of. Reader Eric Vetter writes:

With some embarrassment I admit that I was a subscriber to Brill's Content [back before I figured out that the Blogs did what he pretended to do...] Anyway, I got a copy of Mother Jones today stating that "The balance of your Brill's Content subscription has been transferred to Mother Jones Magazine." Need I say more?
That's quite odd.

Ah the irony of it all...

This hardly counts as an Instalaunch, my friend. More like an Insta-miss ;p

What a bitter little man you are, Mister Atrocity...

What kind of a "reader" are you, anyway, Eric? You didn't even read a post about yourself?

I now recant any allusions I've ever made to the vanity of Eric Vetter.

Gee, at least you actually had an actual Instalanche. I had one back in October, but it may not have been "legitimate," since Ann Althouse was guestblogging for Glenn at the time.

Of course, even then, it had the surprising side effect of forcing me to upgrade my hosting bandwidth. Well, freedom isn't free, so why should an Instalanche be?

I also just found today that you linked to that same post (the Infamous Monsters separated-at-birth parody). Thanks, belatedly.
