RiotACT goes viral – UPDATED

As some of you have noted, Kerces is in Kiama. Which raises the question of why am I here in Canberra?

So unless we get a sharp uptick in paid advertisers on RiotACT in the next week or so (to ease the pain of separation) chances are I won’t be running this show, but rather will be in Kiama pumping petrol (or somesuch) and doing a lot of surfing, snorkelling, sailling and fishing.

“Good Riddance!” a number of you cry.

But for those who think this would be a bad thing, here’s how you can help.

This is a link to our advertising rate card. You can print yourself out a stack of them and every business you go into for the next week give them a copy and point out that advertising here reaches people like you, and you think it would be a worthwhile way to spend their advertising budget. Simple really.

Also for the very keen you could take out an ad for the charity of your choice.

And hey, if it doesn’t work we’ll have some sort of party before I go.

UPDATED: By request here’s the cover blurb to go with the rate card.

ANOTHER UPDATE: We’ve been encouraged by the response and have our first paid ads running now but we really need you guys to dig deep and spread the word.

At least the Pirate chipeped in some $$$. If all the local pollies did think of the revenue :-

About $800 in 2007 (2 x ALP and Libs for the 2 HoR and 2 Senate seats) plus minows.

About $5,000 in the ACT Disassembly election with the ALP, Libs and minows.

Maybe johnboy won’t be off to the coast !!!

After 3 years of us commenting about Kerces JB, you are allowed to cry.

No letting it all out until at least 2009 buddy.

Can we get an interview with the Pirate?

By way of gossip, where was HE on the nite of the fires. Dinner with a priest and the judge?

Does paying for advertising mean they support everything in the Canberra Times? Everything on Channel 9?

No one has to worry any more with Troy William, liberal running for fraser, nothing can go wrong.

Does sponsoring this site mean that the Liberal party supports everything said on the site?

Yeah I bet that “sue us, we’re broke” tagline doesn’t seem so funny anymore!

johnboy johnboy 3:29 pm 07 Mar 07

Well it’s pretty much past tense on the money now.

Still, you never know if you never try.

Can’t be too broke if you’re living off savings. Perhaps you’re one of the rich parasites of the working man’s wealth that some of the sooks who post here whinge about.

johnboy johnboy 3:15 pm 07 Mar 07

I’m not that old! (sadly nor am I as rich)

schmerica_ schmerica_ 3:05 pm 07 Mar 07

I can see how well that turned out for Anna Nicole Smith’s late husband, hehe.

Classy JB. Very, very classy.

Does she have a younger sister?

johnboy johnboy 12:55 pm 07 Mar 07

What was it Groucho Marx said about old men?

schmerica_ schmerica_ 12:46 pm 07 Mar 07

I’ve had to say ‘I wasn’t even born then!’ Sometimes the sleazy old men forget just how old they are sometimes.

Thumper Thumper 12:11 pm 07 Mar 07

I get the ‘I wasnt even born then’ bit.

Ten years difference in my case. It can be quite funny when you say ‘remember when…’

schmerica_ schmerica_ 11:32 am 07 Mar 07

bonfire, it could be worse

‘I wasnt even born then’

bonfire bonfire 11:26 am 07 Mar 07

theres nothing worse than telling a new lady friend about some exciting escapade in your life, and she does quick mental maths and says:

“bonfire, i was 3 when that happened”.

johnboy johnboy 11:13 am 07 Mar 07

I was going to wait until it slipped off the front page tomorrow.

Ari Ari 11:08 am 07 Mar 07

JB, shouldn’t you move this topic back to the top?

Otherwise the push for advertising will slip from many people’s minds.

sheer sheer 10:56 am 07 Mar 07

Although I do hope Kerces’ parents don’t read this site…

sheer sheer 10:55 am 07 Mar 07

C’mon schmerica, that’s never stopped this lot before!
