Wikipedia Coolness

Lately, I've noticed some folks arriving here by clicking a link on the Wikipedia page for Filofax. It's true! Our humble blog is listed as an external link on that page.

I don't know how long the link has been there, or who put it there, but I'm sure glad to see it there. Anybody can edit Wikipedia pages. I could have put our link there myself a long time ago, but I didn't.

Note to self: Stop missing opportunities like that.

  1. Cool! Definitely an honor.

    I think you were right *not* to add your own links - I've always resisted adding PigPog to any Wikipedia stuff, with the result that we're not mentioned anywhere in it :(

    At least that way, though, we can't be accused of using it for self-promotion.

  2. Hi,

    It was me. I have been enjoying your blog for a while and thought that you should be included on the entry.

    I hoped that you wouldn't mind.

    I'm also a member of the Flikr group and will share some 'fax pictures with you soon.

    Chris

  3. Chris, thanks for much for adding the link for the blog. That was very thoughtful. I look forward to seeing your pics on Flickr!

    Michael, I guess you have a point about using Wikipedia for self-promotion. I guess self-promotion really isn't what an encyclopedia is all about, although Wikipedia certainly seems like a free-for-all at times.
