Good friend and long-time blogging cohort VE just returned from a Caribbean honeymoon cruise where he spent 8 days browning himself aboard a floating funfest while sipping fruity umbrella drinks and feasting on all-you-can-eat everythings 24 hours a day.
Ok, so I hate him. Done.
But I do admire his evil side.
A few weeks before he left he secretly asked 5 of us if we would pose as VE imposters on his blog while he was gone, in a clandestine experiment to see if anyone would notice. We even had to reply to his comments as if we were he... er, VE.
Well, I'm pleased to report that I think we succeeded. As far as I can tell from the responses to his followup post here, we fooled nearly all of his
So hop on over here to see my imposter post. If you close one eye, you won't even be able to tell the difference.
In fact, my ruse was so convincing, that in an email to me the other day VE wrote this:
Well the stats are in and you got an A+ with your 54 comments on your imposter blog post. My gauge of success was two fold. 1. Could you fool them 2. Would you break the 40 comment threshold. The 40 comment threshold is my barometer to success. I hadn’t dipped below 40 comments since early Feb prior to my departing and your 54 was a very strong turnout. As such, you get 10 extra reader points on my blog tally. Congrats!Well then, whatta ya know... sounds like I'm even better at being VE than he!
