Yep. Apparently, someone out there thinks that I am interesting enough to be interviewed. Normally, I not the type to toot my own horn, but you know what it feels kind of good. Guess who interviewed me and where they are from? Pakistan. Yep. Pakistan. How did this happen? Well I posted something about the whole Jeremiah Wright controversy, and a Ghazala Khan from the Pakistani Spectator wrote this comment:
Hello Dear and Respected,

Here is an excerpt:
I’m wondering what some of your memorable experiences are with blogging?
I wrote an article on a new artist by the name of Wale out of Washington DC and how he is reshaping the music industry. I was so impressed on how he was marketing his music without a major record label. I decided to write a post on how the music industry can learn from an unsigned artist. Then with in a few days, I received a quite a bit of comments including a comment from Wale’s manager. His manager posted my blog on his MySpace page. Now Wale has a major label deal with Interscope and his record is being produced by Mark Ronson who is Grammy winning producer who also produced Amy Winehouse’s album.
I just want to thank the Pakistani Spectator for doing a real cool thing reaching out to different bloggers from all over the world. Check out the other interviews here.
