Vancouver bloggers, beware! Open warfare has broken out in the Vancouver blogosphere. Well, it was bound to happen. My (admittedly self-serving) Vancouver blogger SEO experiment did indeed put my blog up on the first page of Google searches for that search term.
But when the rest of the local geek squad (and I write that as a Level 4 Geek) found out about my dastardly shenanigans, it was open season on Currents and Jonathon Narvey’s search ranking. The Vancouver Blogger challenge was born, thanks to Vancouver communications guru and media maven Michael Klassen. 2008 Tech Woman to Watch Miss604 has also entered the running and she seems fairly intent on grinding Currents’ search ranking into plasma. As for Duane Blogwalker, may the Force be with you.
It is with a teary eye and a humble heart that I announce that I will not be taking part in the Vancouver Blogger Challenge.
It was never my intent to provoke such a terribly obscure bloodletting. I’ve had my moment of glory. I would certainly invite my readers to link to this blog, Currents, if and when a post on this blog seems to warrant a friendly nod or an honest rebuke… But in the words of modern philosopher Jerry Seinfeld, I CHOOSE NOT TO RUN!
To all those who wish to compete in the Vancouver Blogger challenge, I wish you the very best. In my books, you’re all winners.
