I've been wondering for a long time how I was going to give 24,266,880 people in the United Kingdom aged over 18 the chance to discover this blog for themselves. A chance to luxuriate in its insight and intelligence. To read about what I've been up to, and perhaps say 'good morning' to me, and both of you, in the comments section.
Today I was delighted to discover that the popular website Facebook offers just such a service, see...
This is great, obviously. But to do it I'll need some advertising (there's no such thing as a free lunch). Now luckily Facebook offer just such a service, plus I'm one of the world's best advertising people. So I've put together an ad.
It's a pretty simple ad, a bit like those VW ones from ages ago, but I think it will bring millions of people to this blog pretty easily. That's my plan. Millions. Then I'm going to tell those millions of people about what I've been up to.
Anyway, to do this Facebook want to charge me $500 (that's United States dollars). I don't have this since I paid the builder thousands of pounds to destroy my house. So I'm turning to you lot, and the lot connected to you lot. We just need 500 people to donate $1 (US dollar), or 1 person to donate $500 (US dollars). That shouldn't take too long. To help ease the giving Graeme Douglas suggested I set up a Chipin page, which I've done.
All that remains is for you lot to give money. For me to finesse my advert, and to prepare for the arrival of millions of people.
God bless you all.
(UPDATE: if this goes well then I'm going to do a Superbowl telly ad next year.)
