And so it begins. THE INFLUENCIER is off to a running start. Not quite where we wanted to be at this point, but some action is better than no action. With 8 days to go ’til Empire Avenue officially launches there is much to do. Especially below, in the footer. As you can see, there’s lots of white space down there. Er… Okay, yes, the space I’m referring to is technically black, but that’s not the point. The point is it’s empty right now. Sheesh. You say “PO-TA-TO” I say, “I’d rather have French Fries.” Speaking of french fries, I’m kinda hungry, I wonder what’s in the fridge? Wait, what? Oh, right. Where was I?
With 8 days to go, there are lots of things that THE INFLUENCIER needs to set up, polish, tinker with, and prepare for the big day. For example, there are the twitters that need feeding, the flickrs that need feeding, the column on EmpireBuilding.net that needs wrinting and feeding… Speaking of food, I wonder if that McDonald’s down the street is open right now. I love their french fries. Golden brown… Crispy… Piping hot… Just the right amount of salt… Actually, I always ask for those extra salt packets. You know, the ones with the two tubes you have to break open to get to the salt. I love those things! I always ask for them, but then I never wind up using them. Wait, what? Oh, right. Where was I?
One of the most important things that we need to do here at INFLUENCIER Headquarters is dust off the Limited Edition Collector’s Shares and make plenty of room in THE VAULT. What? You don’t know what Limited Edition Collector’s Shares are? You’ve never heard of THE VAULT? Well my friends, that is something we shall have to remedy. Why don’t you head on over to THE VAULT while I make myself a midnight snack. Yes. I know it’s 3:00 in the morning. That’s not the point. You say “TO-MA-TO” I say “How about a couple of deep fried Twinkies with a raspberry sauce drizzle…”
Hey, before you go, you should probably know that one of the new features planned for this little slice of bloggity goodness is something we’re calling “Ask THE INFLUENCIER.” Gotta question about Empire Avenue? Post it in the comments below, and maybe we’ll do a full-blown post on it. I might not know the answer, but hey, that’s never stopped me before. Until next time , remember…
Influence is an extraordinary tool. What will you do with it?
Now where did I put those Twinkies…
