Abusing My Blog for Personal Gain

There’s a cite called Living Social that offers discounts to various DC-area businesses. Today’s coupon is a 50% off deal at the gastropub Againn — you pay $25 and get to eat $50 worth of food. Even better, after you buy your coupon they give you a custom link and if you get three people to follow the link and buy a coupon of their own, then the original buyer gets his for free. So I already bought one, and then tweeted out my link: free dinner! But I really like Againn, and I have more blog readers than Twitter followers so I bought a second coupon and am now abusing my blog for personal gain by encouraging you, the blog-reading public to click here and buy a coupon.

How good is Againn? Star of blogs and cable news Ezra Klein says “I really like it.” Even the New York Times wrote about how good it is.

Update:

Woo! It worked. Thanks guys!
