Getting Known

Mar 20, 2009

Seventeen copies sold, of which eleven at trade price to free circulating libraries beyond the seas... Getting known.
from Krapp’s Last Tape, by Samuel Beckett

We had the nicest note from the nicest young woman the other day. She said that while visiting our site, she saw that we linked to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). (We don’t, really, although we did have occasion to mention them, with a link, back at No Rest for the Weary on October 14 last year.)

The young woman had a web site of her own, and asked whether we might link to each other. She had already posted our address on her site, where we were flattered to see she linked to only three others, all of them having to do with the theme of her own site: the causes, treatment, and cure of acne. Having a good friend who suffers from this affliction, as well as having been revisited by the scourge ourself of late, it felt like serendipity to us. We replied with our hearty consent to her linking to our site.

At first, we had some reservations, particularly as her site’s name seemed to be misspelled. On a sudden inspiration, we checked out the same name spelled correctly and sure enough there it was, leading us to believe she had sacrificed orthographic for aural fidelity.

We bloggers are a hapless lot. And what had moved us to give her the best plug we could when we first read her email was the fact that, after ten months of more or less daily blogging, this was the first unsolicited acknowledgment of our existence to emanate from someone we didn’t already know.

So if you are an acne sufferer, or you know someone who is, or if you only just wished you knew someone who was, check out Acne Assasin today. You’ll be glad you did.
