I've been visiting the blog of another failed California lawyer. I came across a link to it somewhere, a post in which she was asking for money to avoid being kicked out of her apartment. The first thing I noticed was that there were about thirty five comments on the post already. Many were from regular readers who talked about pushing the Pay Pal button this instant.
Wow, I thought, this ordinary looking blog has real legs. The writer sounded like a nice enough woman, but a little weepy.
There was a site mapping button, so I pressed it. The blog gets over eight hundred visitors a day!!!! What magic was at work here?
Today I did some back reading. There are regular postings of cat pictures and borrowed poetry, but there are also regular bits about matters of current political or social interest. Those later must be the money shots, mustn't they? In my experience, no one likes poetry posts. Could it be the cat pictures? Unlikely, but there's an awful lot of unmarried divorcees out there with cats. Eight hundred a day, what a puzzlement. The content of the topical articles seemed pretty uninspired. (I'm probably just jealous of the eight hundred hits a day.)
Whatever, I couldn't face making a real reportorial effort regarding substantive issues on an almost daily basis. So I guess I'll content myself with you faithful double-dozen and consider myself lucky.
What about them temples!!! Who loves you!!!
