Word of Mouth

I know there are at least a few of you out there who regularly read The Tech Curmudgeon, whether for the breathtakingly original humor or just out of sheer boredom. Either way, it’s important to know that you too can help to expand and improve this blog.

That’s right! You can make a difference! You can tell your friends about The Tech Curmudgeon (, and help increase our readership. And that will benefit you in several important ways.

What’s in it for you?

  1. Studies show that it’s a lot easier to create high-quality humor … humor that appeals to a discriminating audience and is over the heads of most people … when you’re not worried about where your next meal is coming from. With so many restaurants and take-out places in my town, this is a constant concern. But increasing the The Tech Curmudgeon’s readership can offset this. Once I become one of those years-in-the-making, overnight-sensation bloggers, dinner and banquet invitations will start rolling in, and I can quit worrying and concentrate on eating. Oh, and that high-quality humor thing.
  2. You can be part of the elite group, the avant garde who discovered The Tech Curmudgeon before it became massively popular. Of course, you’ll only be able to make that claim if it does become massively popular. So really, by popularizing this The Tech Curmudgeon, you’re adding to your own bragging rights. Plus, if you buy some of our unique and tasteful Tech Curmudgeon t-shirts and other schwag, I promise to change the design eventually1, so yours will become a rare, hard-to-find collectible, highly prized on eBay by people with too much free time.
  3. Remember that The Tech Curmudgeon fights a never-ending battle against truth, justice, and … I mean FOR truth, justice, etc. Or at least truth. So that’s pretty cool. By supporting this cause, you’re helping to ensure that more annoying commercials get lampooned, that poorly thought out technology products get ridiculed, and that each of us, no matter how humble, can speak truth to power supplies.
So remember: Tell everyone you know about The Tech Curmudgeon! It’s the smart thing to do!

Well, it’s not a bad thing.
