Blogosphere Magic: The Metal Cowboy

Posted on February 27, 2007

Metal Cowboy LogoAll bloggers experience it at one time or another and in one form or another and I experienced some blogosphere magic just the other day. I recently read and reviewed Joe Kurmaskie’s first two books: Metal Cowboy and Riding Outside the Lines. The books were really great reads so I had to get the word out. Who would have thought the word would get all the way to the man himself?

Joe came across my posts the other day thanks to another reader of his and he took the time to shoot me a nice e-mail. Of course I couldn’t leave it at just one e-mail because, well, I’m a talker (or a typer in this case) so Joe and I started a dialogue. In that dialogue I mentioned how I really wished he’d start a blog and I offered to help him get one going. After working with Joe’s friend and business partner Gary for a little bit I am happy to report that the Metal Cowboy himself is now blogging.

Not only did I get to e-meet the author of some books I really enjoyed because of the blog post I also got to help get him set up with his own blog. What a great thing this blogosphere can be sometimes. I am sure Joe, Gary and I will stay in touch and continue to build up the site and the blog. Who knows, maybe we’ll even cycle together one of these days.

Until then, I will enjoy reading my Metal Cowboy Mayhem blog updates in Google Reader so I can see what Joe is up to. In fact, right now Joe’s working on some great stuff including a camp for kids called Camp Creative where kids will be able to participate in creative and outdoor activities.

If you want to help Joe build Camp Creative you can buy his books (his publisher gave him a great deal if people buy direct from him in terms of what he gets to keep and put back into the camp) or take a great adventure vacation with a new tour company called Rolling Roads that he and Gary are starting up. Most of the proceeds (in fact, I think all of the after expenses dollars) from both of these endeavors will directly help the camp.

Glad to have you in the blogosphere Joe!
