Baxter Bark Twice

Do as I say, never as I do

I will literally do anything to be liked

Couple of things: I made it so that BBT is now MUCH more mobile-device friendly. If you are reading this from your mobile device, you know what I’m talking about because it is now a simple format instead of the narrow margin of text that was pretty much impossible to read. I hope this helps. You are welcome.

Also, in efforts to make Baxter Bark Twice a worldwide phenomenon, I am going to award one lucky Facebook fan $20 to iTunes. Who wouldn’t want $20 to iTunes?! According to the web information company Alexa, BBT is ranked as the 9,623,940th viewed site on all of the interweb, reaching .00001 percent of global internet users. I don’t really know what to make of that, but I feel as though I could do better. Ergo, here’s what you do:

1. LIKE me on Facebook.

By Friday at noon, I will choose someone at random and email them the code to their $20 iTunes gift card. Said winner can choose to remain anonymous or we can come up with some kind of moniker to announce their win – whatevs, I don’t really care, but I want more fans on Facebook, so I’ve resorted to actually paying you to be my friend. People respond well to bribes incentives, and I have no shame. Sorry I’m not sorry. If you’re already a fan not to worry – you can still win, but feel free to help generate some buzz.

Just think of what you could do with $20 to iTunes…make a brand new mix CD for that special someone; catch up on old episodes of Rescue Me; re-gift it to someone you’re too lazy/cheap to buy something for… The options are endless!

Thanks in advance.

Feliz cumpleaños! Joyeux anniversaire! Buon compleanno! สุขสันต์วันเกิด! سالگرہ مبارک! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (credit: Google Translate)

On this day in 2010, I posted my very first blog entry. I wrote it, published it, sent an email to a few people, left my office for lunch, and had massive anxiety the moment I was out the door. How far I’ve come!!!

Some neat facts:

Most viewed entry: Racks come in all shapes and sizes (this, unfortunately, is due to the J Simps reference I have in quotes and picks up an embarrassing number of Goog searches. I hope she doesn’t kill me in my sleep.)

Most commented entry: BBT Exclusive: Survey of the Sexes (one of these days….we’ll do #2)

Most popular feedback (male): ENOUGH KATE MIDDLETON – but she is pretty hot (I’m a girl and I like royalty)

Most popular feedback (female): I want a shout out!! (can’t force these things…your time will come)

BBT is nothing without her readers – many thanks to those who faithfully visit, and especially those who make suggestions – even if they’re dumb, I appreciate the effort.

I didn’t really know what to do to celebrate, so I made a collage of myself. I feel pretty retarded about it, but I’ve got a lot going on today so it is what it is.

Thank you for joining me.
