Will someone please direct me to the nearest rock so I may hide under it?
Okay. Here’s what happened. I read an article about how to get traffic to your blog. What I did, accidentally, today is not how to get blog traffic.
Back to the article. It advised to go to other sites and suggested StumbleUpon as a means to check out other sites and blogs to comment on and build a relationship with. As part of signing up, it asks you to invite friends. I did not want to invite every last person in my address book.
Unfortunately, it thought I did.
I clicked something wrong.
It sent out an invitation to EVERYONE.
That includes friends (fine), family (sorry), customer service addresses (oh well), and any editor or agent I have ever emailed a query. OHHHHH NOOOOO.
Where was that rock again?
Too late now. Can’t undo it. So…now what? Email all those potential career making or breaking persons and apologize? Or cross my fingers and hope their spam will kick it out. Or that they’ll simply delete it, or not make the connection. That doesn’t seem exactly the best, mature, professional tactic, though does it?
So this is what crow tastes like. I’d always wondered….
