I have my first celebrity reader! Oh, how I hesitate to use the word “celebrity” but hey, he’s certainly more popular than I am, or will probably ever be.
Imagine my surprise when I logged into the admin panel and saw that I had a comment pending approval from Spandy Andy, in response to my So You Think You Can Dance, Saint John? post. I assume that Spandy Andy has Google Alerts set up to notify him of the mention of his unique name. Or perhaps it was the fact that I linked to his website in the original post. Either way, it didn’t take him long to be notified of my post mentioning him.
His comment was certainly understandable, so I approved it with a chuckle. I’m sure that he’s been called worse. I certainly have. But I’ll give Spandy Andy credit… not knowing the man behind the character at all… he’s managed to get himself noticed, and has people talking. The mere fact that there’s someone on the east coast writing about this is proof enough that his appearance on So You Think You Can Dance was a success. It might not have gotten the desired reaction from this blogger, but it still got a noticed.
And at the end of the day, isn’t that all any of us want?
