I just published an article on Thanksgiving proclamations issued my presidents of the Philippines from 1935-1984. The article runs over 6,000 words and required a good amount of research, reading, and editing. On the same day that this study went live, a short article that I wrote in August about the bad color scheme on an unsolicited direct mail spam book about “cleanliness” surged, becoming our third most-read article of the last 72 hours. I suppose that I am glad that I wrote about the book before throwing it away, but I am not sure how this makes me feel.
(Note: To the author of said spam book, Tom Cantor: I am available as a design consultant.)
