BELLEVUE, Wash., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Many of us have had dreams; sometimes these dreams feel so real we have a hard time distinguishing them from reality.  For one Adam Broetje, President of cMedia Productions, a Seattle-based Internet Marketing Firm, his nightmare is just beginning...

Pacific Software Publishing (PSP) recently upgraded a web-based blogging platform called, which they have limited to only 1,000 users on the version. They hired cMedia initially to help with the Search Engine Optimization of the platform and then asked cMedia to help in growing the number of bloggers on the system as well.

As motivation to work as quickly as possible, Adam is going to give up dating until cMedia can find 1,000 users for

"I told them that the money was motivation enough. Unfortunately I continued to joke that if I needed to work quicker, I wouldn't date until we filled the 1,000 users. When I made the joke I expected them to laugh along with me; instead they just smiled and started taking notes."

It was what his co-workers like to call "death via dedication." cMedia's Strategy Manager, Chris Goddard, says, "Adam has a habit of driving forward like a blind mountain goat with little regard for unforeseen personal consequences."  It appears Chris is spot on.

cMedia has now set up a website,, to let people follow the progress of a 28-year-old single male who can't date.

PSP President Mayumi Nakamura said, "Who knows, it might just be crazy enough to work, but I do know one thing, we're all going to have a good laugh at Adam's expense."  

Ken Uchikura, founder of PSP, is offering a $1000 reward to anyone who catches Adam out on a date and sends in a picture before he reaches his goal of 1000 bloguru users.
