I’m writing this to encourage others to make the effort to amplify their influence like I do. Ever since I began contributing online, I’d made a conscious decision to establish free accounts at media websites from which original articles were sourced so I could cut and paste some of my more carefully constructed comments to many different sites. By doing this, I feel I can increase my own tiny influence just a little bit more.
I would encourage everyone to consider doing the same. It takes just a couple of minutes to sign up on most media websites, and most media sites allow use of existing google, facebook, twitter and other pre-existing social networking accounts for this purpose. If you choose to use social networking accounts, I strongly recommend you set up dummy accounts just for astroturfing since using them for media signup purposes forces you to let those websites into your accounts in intrusive ways. So whatever you do, don’t use any of your real accounts for astroturfing.
Also, set up at least one throwaway email account for this purpose, and be aware that you’ll actually have to use it at least for the purpose of receiving activation-response emails from any sites you choose to directly register on.
Note that keeping track of all the login ids and passwords can be a nightmare, so it’s essential to use a browser addon like RoboForm to keep track of all of this login information. You can download, install, and use Roboform for free, but using RoboForm for remembering more than 10 accounts requires you to fork out $29.00 or so to fully activate it.
The reason I specifically recommend RoboForm is that, as far as I can tell, there’s no really good free alternative for login id management, and RoboForm is truly an outstanding addon for your browsers, as it automates the collection, saving, and use of login and form-filling information. Its database is in human-readable text, and Roboform shares this database across all of your browsers.
At any rate, it’s loads of fun to construct well-reasoned posts and then plaster them all over the net. BTW, I rarely bother to duplicate my posts on conservative media sites, but choose to post them on the mainstream media sites where I expect they might have more impact, both by showing the liberal media people feel about their neo-Marxist nonsense, and by amplifying other opinion posts from other conservatives.
As an example, McClatchy just ran a neo-Marxist article this past Sunday with the headline “Is higher joblessness rate the ‘new normal’?”, and I posted the following comment on at least 20 different newspaper sites of theirs:
1. Only as long as Democrats are in charge.
2. Only as long as illegal immigration remains unlimited.
3. Only as long as Obamacare remains in existence.
4. Only as long as the EPA kills coal-fired electricity generation.
5. Only as long as annual trillion dollar deficits are the norm.
6. Only as long as Marxists are in charge of the economy.
7. Only as long as the U.S. remains a socialist welfare state like France.
8. Only as long as the dollar continues to shrink in value.
9. Only as long as we export our manufacturing jobs.
10.Only as long as Obama is President.
So, now go out there and amplify your influence like I do!
