So Bolton Deventer, the spoof online marketer, has entered the upcoming local blog awards. The rather odd-looking Deventer, who runs the blog “Webtrafficmaker” is a fictional character, a clever and funny parody of an internet marketer from Ermelo, apparently created as a “major social experiment“. An entire persona was created, which included profiles on Facebook and Mybloglog, which sparked speculation across the blogosphere at the time.
Now, Bolton’s latest post claims that should he win an SA blog award, Bolton/The Creator-behind-Bolton will pitch up to claim it, ultimately revealing his true identity. But for now his identity is still shrouded in mystery… but I have my theories as to whom it may be.
(Thanks to Rob Stokes from Quirk, who alerted me to the post… and, then, accused me of being Bolton. Not guilty!)
