I thought I’d write this post as note to the readers out there. Specifically, YOU! Yes, you! I know you’re reading. I’m practically anal about the stats right now, even though I shouldn’t be because they really aren’t much in the way of stats anyway.
Today was a pretty boring day, filled with watching movies, watching my dogs sleep, and watching my crops grow on Facebook. I actually had a thought about a post earlier, but unfortunately, I didn’t write it down. I should know better by now, really. But, I’m still making the rookie mistake.
And I know I want more traffic to my blog, in a way… but also I’d like to have a little bit of privacy. Tough choice, right? I know what you’re saying: You can’t have it both ways! True. But I think I can keep some information out of my posts so at least I have the false sense of security about privacy. I’m sure every detail of myself is out somewhere because I’ve never lived under a rock. Trying to get more traffic is easy, according to numerous blogs and sites about driving traffice to your own site. The main idea is to visit other sites and post comments on their sites.
Yes, I used to do that when I had more free time. I used to religiously seek out blogs and read them and comment and keep up. A lot of them were fun. One in particular was a blog by a woman who loved Sex and the City and she blogged about situations that the SATC characters would face. For the life of me, however, I cannot find the link to it. I do recall that she did refer to herself as Fat Carrie and I loved reading her posts. If anyone knows where this blog is, please post the link? Please?
I seemed to visit blogs where the bloggers were women. I don’t know if it was a surge of girl power or just something to pass the time. I seemed to be turned off by male bloggers, for some reason. Maybe they were the particular blogs I ran into or just the particular posts. But female bloggers seemed to relate to me better. And besides, since I had moved away from my hometown, it was harder to keep up with friends on a personal level… and so keeping up on blogs made it a little easier and less lonely. Plus, it was always nice to know that my life wasn’t the only one that was screwed up.
So, now I’m scouring the web again, looking for more interesting blogs to read (and post comments on). I found a Buffy, the Vampire Slayer blog to read, which is pretty good… but I’m still looking for more. I guess I want to surround myself with lots of blogs so I wouldn’t feel so alone or bored.
If any of you have any interesting blogs to share, please do so! I’d love to check out new things! Thanks, everyone!
