Hello, my name is Toby, and I'm addicted to egosurfing.
One of the strange things about having written a book is that I find myself checking amazon.com reviews and rank, as well as googling both my name and the book's name to see what comes up. To be completely honest, I probably do one of these things each day.
Some, I know about -- C at A Picture of Me is someone I know in real life and I read her blog, so this post
wasn't a shock. But as the blogosphere goes, it lead to this reader
And I know some of the poker bloggers have kindly pimped my book -- though I don't know how many actually read it. :)
Lately though, I've found that people on livejournal and blogger are reading it:
- dagchristine: My favorite new book is:The Badass Girl'
- Now if I wanted to get AJJ involved with poker...
- "Toby Bocham"
I'm not sure how long I'll keep this up, but I still get as much of a kick out of finding these as I do when I see my book in the store.
Meanwhile -- I've reached a few milestones -- 10,000+ people have come by this blog, and it's been over 6 months since I quit smoking. I'm still chewing the gum, which isn't great, but I'm still not smoking, which is, if I do say so myself. And I just did!
Anyway, my point is -- thanks for reading it, talking about it, thank you for being a friend....and if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew, you would see, the drunkest girl there would be me, and the card attached would say "Thank you for being a friend and putting me in a cab."
