Mildly ashamed self-promotion

Why has "shameless self-promotion" become such a long-winded mindlessly ironic cliché?  I'm ashamed of my self-promotion, but I'm doing it anyway.  It's like alcoholism, or something.

So I'm not sure what percentage of this blog's readership cares, but I've started a blog all my own.  Its goal is more to be a blog than to impart any sort of information.  Its aesthetic is more fuzzy than shiny.

  1. I too keep a separate blog for things that don't seem to fit here, mainly boring stuff about computers that I just want to dump into the google machine. http://crawlingrobotfortress.blogspot.com/
