Does this mean I'm actually Internet famous now?

Those who are close to me know one thing, above all else, about me: my name isn't Dick Michael Michaels. And yet, according to this Facebook profile Mr. Michaels (if that is your real name, and it probably isn't) looks almost exactly like me.

Here's the picture he nabbed from me (it is from this blog post about stepping out of your comfort zone).

For some reason Mr. Michaels is impersonating me on Facebook, and harassing people (mostly Yankees Fans.. if Gruber were on Facebook no doubt my social media doppelgänger would be harassing him as well).

Thanks to Jon for sending me a link to this dude's Facebook profile (you have to be logged into Facebook to see it). I've reported him as an impersonator so we'll see how long it takes Facebook to realize that I'm the One True Scott McNulty.

Accept no substitutes.

On Twitter my bio is "I'm almost Internet famous." I think this incident nudged me a little closer to full on Internet fame.


Buy my books, in Kindle format!

Anyone who reads this blog knows two things about me: I love money and I enjoy promoting myself. Amazon has long had a service that made it possible for me to do both of these things at once: the Amazon Associates program. With Amazon Associate links I get a omission (or "kick back") from Amazon based on what you buy after following the link.

That's why I always link to my books using Amazon links, because I hope that people finding my blog will fall in love with it and then immediately buy every book I've written (in five years I've earned almost $84 with this tactic. I'm well on my way to saying goodbye to the day job). However, for the longest time Amazon wasn't allowing people to get these fees with Kindle books (and I love me some Kindles). That has all changed, though, so feel free to order the Kindle versions of these fine books:

I've also added a little Kindle ad to the right hand sidebar on my blog. I'm not expecting many people to actually buy a Kindle via this blog, but I figured why the heck not?
