Finally, local bloggers can stop being outblogged by the sensationalist mystery blogger who blogged his way into our hearts and onto their blog shit lists. Where else could I have worked a variant of blog into that sentence? A moment of blog silence, anyone?
Hello everyone, my name is Kate and I figured it was time to let everyone in on a big secret. "Nemesisboy" and the website (including all written and visual content) was a project for my Interpreting Media class at Volunteer State University. I set out to show my professor the power of the internet to entertain, inform, misinform, persuade, and so on. Needless to say, I got an A! I started out using the local music scene to reach out and write about (and enrage at times), and the idea of using a persona that seemed nearly illiterate and downright stupid was part of the study. It provided a buffer for the reasons behind some of the posts. I moved on to local news because I realized the importance and power of local media (including local papers) to the blog readers. All of the data that was collected is quite staggering (links, referrers, hit counts, search results, IP traces)! It also showed my professor the power of the internet and the power to persuade and falsly inform even Nashville's most "intelligent" web surfers. So......thanks for enjoying my project. I appreciate the hit counts! If you have any questions or further interest (or if you'd like a copy of my A+ paper via email) send an email to the contact address on the website. Thanks again!
