The Blog Whore

I go all sad and feel all hopeless for full minutes at a time when I look at my blog stats and see the graph is level. Then I get all proactive and go post on a couple of blogs that I know will provide hits. These are blogs that have little or nothing to do with my personal life or my writerly ambitions. They are largely political, a minefield I like to lob large rocks into, but will not enter. But then a huge spike shows up in the graph before my second string even hits the traffic source list. Then, my sales take a leap. Because of what I did perhaps which would be good marketing if I knew what it was that caused the spike. The traffic sources show little of the true picture, nobody subscribing shows up there, but my political pals show up on time and I feel I have chosen the right career. Blog whore. Hopefully that will be considered a secondary career by me, who is the only person who gives a nickel about any of my careers. In the meanwhile, since you deigned to stop by, let me share with you one of my favorite most inspiring things. Creativity inspiring and awe inspiring. Enjoy.

  1. Ha. I feel the same way about my stats. There is an inverse relationship between how much I care if people read me and how many people read. If I go off and live my life, everyone suddenly rushes in, but when I neeeeeed it, nobody's there. What the hell is that?

  2. Dunno. But there it is. I personally believe it is because our particular egos are in a special superclass that creates synergistic energies. I put up a larger, better pic of Major Kearney, he who will be my role model, after my role model is gone.
    Thanks for stopping by.
