Stanton Martin once read that one of the best ways to generate traffic to your blog is to comment on other blogs. To which he said “Screw that!”
In a comment. On another blog. In order to generate traffic to his blog.
Stanton and I met up at Sal and Mookie’s New York Pizza and Ice Cream Joint, a local favorite. We discussed his site, Star Wars, and impressions. Just normal stuff.
When I read Stanton Martin Dot Com, I get jealous that I’m not as good as he is at blogging. His wit is unstoppable.His charm is undeniable. His teeth are indescribable. But his facial hair doesn’t stand a chance.
In all seriousness, it’s good to have a friend like Stanton, who I can say stupid blog related things to and actually get feedback from. When we’ve hit a writing wall, we know that we can always count on the other to make sarcastic comments until the motivation comes back.
The more I think about it, the more I question how helpful we actually are.
On Wednesdays, Stanton releases a new Life Tip, so you can become a better person. On Fridays, he posts a list of 7 Things, so you….can read them, I guess.
On a side note, the video mentioned Reluctant Runners, a site for people who love running, just not while doing it. It is run by two very humorous guys that we don’t know but wish we did named Tyler Stanton and Tripp Crosby.
I don’t, under any circumstances, enjoy running. Ever. When somebody starts a site for people who get unnecessarily angry at themselves during pickup basketball games, I’ll be all up on that.
Did you enjoy this? Want to be a part of a lunch interview? Leave some feedback!

Tripp and Tyler do video shorts before morning services at my hometown church. Glad you know about these guys.
Know about them? Shoot, Tyler Stanton is the reason my Kindle broke!
Okay, this comment probably needs context. But instead, I’m just going to give you a link to an Amazon review I wrote:
Never been so aware of how I chew food. I’m sorry everyone.
