Press Kit: How to Write a Great Blurb for Bush Watch.
Coined in 1907 by humorist Gelett Burgess, a "blurb" is "a flamboyant advertisement, an inspired testimonial, fulsome praise."
1. Gush. Example: "Bush Watch deserves to have more readers than the Bible..."
2. Observe the Rule of Three. Example: "It is tart, witty, and fair..."
3. Make Comparisons with Other Leading Brands. Example: "The first Bush site on the web, including George's own..."
4. Know Your Browser. Example: "As acerbic as George Will, as on the money as Molly Ivins..."
5. Try to be Mildly Idiosyncratic. Example: "Anyone who doesn't read Bush Watch is doomed..."
6. Make Apposite Puns. Example: "Don't let Bush Watch out of your sight..."
Voila, Le Blurb!
"Bush Watch deserves to have more readers than the Bible. The first Bush site on the web, including his own, it is tart, witty, and fair. It's as acerbic as George Will, as on the money as Molly Ivins. Anyone who doesn't read it is doomed. Don't let Bush Watch out of your sight."
