IT’S OFFICIAL: I AM THE BIGGEST BLOGEEK.
Some of the regular readers may have wondered about the recent influx of comments on my blog. Unfortunately it’s not due to particularly stellar posts or any grand accomplishments by me. I did just what the title says- I hijacked a blog. Actually, as of this morning, two blogs.
I noticed that the “Recently Updated” list on the Blogger Dashboard hasn’t been updated at all for the last few weeks so I checked out some of the sites. One of the blogs no longer had an owner and I wondered if I could snap it up. Two minutes later, “My Blog” was mine. I added a little redirect to “People are Idiots” and voila! The people cometh.
But what I really wanted was the blog titled “Lesbian Therapy.” Sure, I knew it wouldn’t help with my Christmas card argument but I also knew that a title like that would draw in the masses and thrust my reader numbers to the heights of such esteemed works as Time, Newsweek and Big Boobies Weekly. I checked back today and, as luck would have it, “Lesbian Therapy” was available! (Yeah, THAT’S the sort of insignificant “luck” that I have). Besides gaining more readers, I get the amusement of imagining hordes of guys plowing through a bunch of posts, all the while wondering, “Come on! When does she talk about showering in the women’s locker room?”
So why do I need more readers? I don’t. My old group of loyal readers are great but most seemed to be on the same wavelength as me and I wanted a little more dissention. I won’t feel like I’ve truly made it as a blogger until I get my first official death threat. If anybody’s a little peeved at my blog-hogging, I assure you that no matter how bad you think my blog is, it’s still much better than the ones that filled those slots before. Plus, if my usual luck stays true to form, Blogger will finally fix the problem tomorrow and this place will be a ghost town once again.
In the meantime, thanks for coming, have a look around and don’t be afraid to admit how you found my blog.
