Since my life has suddenly turned into all-self-promotion-all-the-time, I'll just put this link herehttp://www.facebook.com/DropDeadQuirky
it's the fan page for my etsy shop and it contains links to the insane amount of press I've gotten this weekend - Huffington Post, BoingBoing, The Village Voice (!!!) to name a few... I don't know if I need to hire a press agent or a workshop full of elves.
(also, in case anyone was wondering, I am super duper uncomfortable with this stuff - I don't like the self-promotion, I don't like tooting my own horn, I don't like networking, I don't like cultivating contacts - but I figure if so many people get famous/notorious for filming their worst behavior/making terrible music videos/sleeping with Tiger Woods or Charlie Sheen, why can't I parlay this into something awesome like a book deal or a plate of free tacos?)
(also, part 2, electric buggaloo - this whole experience has cemented my policy of not reading comments on the internet as I am superduper fragile and CANNOT handle even anonymous commenterscalling my stuff a "waste of time and thread" or "fail" - WORDS HURT, Y'ALL and it's seriously everything I can do to NOT lash out and reply to stuff like that)
