This blog started as a germ of an idea during a pre-party meet-up in MOA. As folks were not very comfortable being addressed as influential bloggers, somebody coined the term influenza bloggers instead. Like most germs, the idea went into gestation for a little bit, and though we tried to douse it with alcohol at Lyle’s place, it seemed like the germ simply mutated and became resistant to spirits, fermented spirits that is.
This afternoon, after I woke up I was thinking of greeting the boys via twitter, but I found it too much of a hassle typing in those @’s so I suggested to one of the guys that why don’t we just create a channel – #influenzabloggers and be done with all those @s. He seemed to like the idea so the #influenzabloggers channel came into existence.
I also thought that since we’re at it, why don’t we create a free blog for it as well. 20 minutes later, this blog came into being. 3 hours later, I’m writing this second post and there are already a couple of comments in the first post.
It seems to me that when you have a part of your tagline that rhymes with corn, people will come. That ghost in Kevin Costner’s film Field of Dreams was right after all– ‘Build a porn site, and they will come.’ Teehehehe.
Somebody stop me.
Note: This post has gone haywire. Almost no relation at all to the post title. But, that’s just the way I roll. 🙂
