Mark Cuban, who recently appropriated the term blog-pimping to refer to what bloggers do when they comment and point to a high profile blog or blog post with the intent of drafting off of the traffic being generated by the higher profile blogger or post. Today, he actually demonstrates how blog pimping is done by pointing to (and trying to inject himself into) one of the strangest and least important pop-culture “feuds” ever conceived.
Note of historic importance: With this post, I am initiating a new practice called blog-pimp blog-pimping.
Related: Not that it matters, but is there some budding William Safiresque etymologist who can fill in me in on the term “blog pimp”? Or “blog-pimping”? While Cuban’s use of the phrase is just a few weeks old and somewhat fuzzy in meaning, at one time didn’t the phrase “blog-pimping” refer to “pimping out” ones blog with lots of bling, ala, say, blog bling zen-master, Fred Wilson?
