Urban blog advertising

Blog posts on a lamp post

I was walking home tonight when I came across a very different form of lamppost advertising. Someone had posted two of their latest blog posts at a busy street corner in San Francisco. The top post introduces weblogs and the topics they cover, encouraging people to read more weblogs for the latest news about their community and the topics they care about. The bottom post talks about comments by radio host Rush Limbaugh against homosexuals.

Someone came by and added their own Xanga blog URL to the post about Limbaugh, possibly as a way to supplement the existing 88 comments on the site.

Spotted at the southwest corner of 8th Street and Market Street in San Francisco. A pretty clever way to get more readers.
