I started something!
Posted by episode81 on December 27, 2010
If I had thought about it a little more, I would have put a watermark on the image to drive even more traffic my way. I didn’t, so the image went viral without any link back to my site. Poo.
Anywho, I digress …
Within hours of popping up on Boing Boing, the image started showing up on a lot of blogs – I found them as they linked back to my site.
I also found the ones that didn’t link back.
Several friends emailed me when the image showed up on Regretsy. Regretsy took it in a whole new direction. After challenging their readers to knit the masks, they were then auctioned off to raise money for a monster-obsessed little boy with leukemia. They got $1700. Not too shabby!
Another friend emailed me about Poorly Dressed. A fashion fail indeed!
I am keeping my eyes peeled for more crazy knitting pics. When I find them, I will be sure to include a watermark!
