It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything. I know… and I’m sorry. I’ve had a lot going on, but mostly I haven’t felt all that funny, and when I HAVE felt funny, I’ve funneled it into other projects I have in the works. That’s not a teaser. Okay technically I suppose hinting at “other projects” sounds a bit like a teaser, but it’s not meant to be. Just… never mind. Forget I said that. The point is, I’m here now with another helpful blog to teach you all something important to learn.
If you’ve missed the first two parts to this blog, nothing that follows will make any sense to you. Okay, truth be told, even if you HAVE been following along, this blog is pretty much doomed to make very little sense, anyway. After all, we’re talking about an epic battle to the finish between breakfast cereal mascots. There’s only so much sense it can possibly make. If you need to catch up on the conversation, though, you can check out part one HERE and part two HERE. The basis of all this is a hilarious conversation which took place between myself and Kevin from A Ramblin’ Dad’s Blog.
The conversation about breakfast cereals was a long, intense debate. Determining who would win, for example, in a fight between Sonny, the guy who goes Coo-Coo for Cocoa Puffs, and the Trix Rabbit, is a daunting task. It was however, a task that needed doing. For humanity.
A lot of you follow me on the Twitters. I love that. To all my awesome followers, thank you for being the imaginary friends I talk to through the computer box thingy. You complete me (and temporarily silence the voices). Sometimes, though, I can be a twitter fuckup. Sometimes, people follow me and I fail to notice it and follow them back. If that ever happens, just fire me an @ and say hi. I love conversing via Tweeter. In fact, some of the funniest things I’ve ever said on the Twitternets has come in one of those @ conversations with other people.
Pay Attention to Search Terms
Not everyone comes to your blog because they *subscribed to it, or because they saw your comments on another blog, or because they check your blog on a daily basis, hoping to see a new blog (what? People totally do that!). No, often people find your blog by typing something weird into Google and clicking randomly on the results. So, by keeping track of the search terms that led people to your blog, you can have an idea what people are expecting when they find your blog. On the other hand, you may also see a darker side of humanity that you aren’t completely prepared for.
Enjoy the Spam
This is a fairly short blog, but also a fun one. This is merely a reminder to all of you out there to take the time to enjoy some of the spam comments you get on your blog. No, really! I know if you have a kickass spam filter like Akismet doing its job, then you will never be forced to really even SEE the spam comments your blog gets. But, seriously, spam can be such fun. I even read my spam emails from time to time for the same reason. There’s something about them that always gives me a chuckle.
Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy
Ahhh yes. My blog just keeps getting all kinds of classy. Before I get into this blog, though, I should explain my absence. I had my finals in my classes over the weekend, followed by fairly horrible couple of days. Long story short, I am now an ice cream man who can’t sell ice cream. My cart died. I lost hundreds of dollars in product. *Sigh* I’m not overly upset, just extremely disappointed. Moving on…
So, this blog is all about pimping out your blog for increased traffic. Most people are better at doing this than I am. Okay, if I’m being honest, mine is one of the most poorly pimped blogs I know. I also really don’t try, which is why I have been a little amused by the times when I accidentally succeeded. So, through these successes, I’ve actually learned a thing or two.
