So this week has been pretty crazy and it's only Wednesday.
On Monday I put a few new items in my shop and sent a short message on Twitter. Those new items would be Frail Whale No. 1, Frail Whale - Standard Edition, and Frail Whale No. 2.
Those of you familiar with Twitter, will understand my reference to the microblog's "Fail Whale" who pops up periodically when the service is struggling to handle the volume of messages.
To my utter delight the blog AdRants wrote a blurb about Frail Whale and then Universal Hub added Frail Whale to a post about a Boston Globe article about 'Twitterati'.
Even AWESOMER, Mark Hoppus (hottie singer) of Blink182 wrote about Frail Whale on his blog! (Psyched the band is rehearsing again!)
All of this drove a ridiculous number of visitors to the blog and to my Etsy Shop. So welcome the Frail Whales (Currently undergoing cosmetic surgery, new and improved available soon!) and all the fine folks now joining @modamags in Twitterland!
And thanks to the mysterious workings of the Internets!
