I have a secret little fetish that I’ve never told anyone about before (okay, I have several, but I’m only going to tell you one of them):

I’m a fan of mouseover text.

There. I said it.

    I (until this post) had very few views on mouseover text… if any! I now agree to not only improve my use of mouseover text – but to embrace it the way you have! the only real issue is that unless people know to look for it (which I now do – thank you) – it’s easily overlooked. I read you recent post about the content marketing lie and didn’t notice it at all. I re-read after reading this post and it made it a more entertaining post. I’ll be sure to hone my hovering instincts for future posts.

    An editorial Easter egg hunt. Nice.
