Bolton Deventer 'reveal' to spice up local blog awards?

bolton deventerSo 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!)

  2. Let us not forget about how he also accuses me of being Bolton… I might even go to CPT for the event just to see who this person is.

    Would make for a really interesting competition – something along the lines of “The Fugitive”.

    Bolton is a liar and a fraud.

    This is just yet another opportunity for him to take his charade to a new level.

    Get people to vote his blog as the most controversial, gain the satisfaction of manipulating us further, and then renege on his promise, and show us all his arse (again).

    If Bolton was going to reveal himself, he would have done it already.

    If he dares to show himself, I suggest everyone beat the crap out of him, prize or no prize.

    It is necessary.

    Forget free and fair elections here, here is some voter intimidation:

    anyone who votes for Bolton shall get the crap beaten out of them too.

    There’s no international monitors here, it’s just you and me, and my big stick.
