Maybe it’s time for a new perspective on blogging. I mean, why not? The one I’m using now isn’t working for shit.
Staring at the dancing flames in the pellet stove while sipping my morning coffee I had a “brain-fart.” Nothing new. Afterall, this is a morning activity that ranks right up there with that other morning activity for birthing brain-farts.
As is often the case, I was pondering the problem of poor blog performance. Perhaps because I am pissed off about the few people visiting my blog while other blogs produce platoons of visitors.
Notice my excessive use of words with the p-sound in that paragraph? No, it’s not that I’m losing it… well, maybe a little. It’s because a repetitive sound is just what you get before having a blowout on the freeway. And a blowout is the explanation I was seeking for the one blog visitor I get.
I believe my one visitor is just an innocent traveler on the information superhighway who had a blowout. Their computer jerked, forcing them to the side of the highway, coming to a stop at my blog site. Giving silent thanks for a safe stop they summoned help and were on their way.
Now I know what I need to do to increase visitors to my blog. I need to scatter a handful of virtual nails across the information superhighway, in front of my blog, and enjoy the results.
Then, once they stop at my site, I offer them something to read while waiting for roadside service to arrive.
OK. The plan has a few glitches. So what? It might work.
Now, where do I find some virtual nails?
