How to attract viewers

I guess it comes down to writing interesting things! But what the hell interests people? I don’t know. I thought provocative, weird posts would attract people. But, not really. I found if I go to popular blogs and leave lots of comments, my views go WAY up for a day or two, but then they drop off to nothing again. I guess they don’t stick around because they don’t find my wacky, weird posts interesting enough to come back. OTOH, on one of the blogs I follow, he just posts a story of his everyday life. And he has followers that are OBSESSED with his blog? Why? I don’t know. He’s probably almost as weird as me! šŸ™‚

I suppose the difference is that he writes about current, everyday life events in addition to his weird thoughts. Maybe I should do that. But then what would I talk about? Well, I went to work today and managed to figure out how our Order Entry system (named “C2”) loads data from the database for an order. I also solved a bunch of problems for users and came up with a design for how C2 is going to handle dates. Exciting isn’t it? Ok.

Then I stopped at King Soopers and picked up some Sirloin Burgers as a reward for my roomate’s 16-year-old son who mowed the lawn and cleaned up the kitchen in return for the $100.00 I’m going to loan him to pay for his girlfriend’s skateboard that he accidentally broke (he’s going to have to do a lot more, that was just proof that he could do it! šŸ™‚

I came home and most of the work was done, so I cooked the hamburgers and some mashed potatoes. When he came home, I had him finish the dishes and then he ate my hamburgers. We had a pretty good talk about ….. oh crap! I can’t remember what we talked about. I think it was ghosts and psychic powers. Or maybe that was Willow. Or maybe both.

*sigh* I guess I just don’t get in to talking about my everyday life! šŸ™‚

But maybe that’s what people are interested in. ESPECIALLY your feelings!

Hmmmm. That’s probably it. The key. But I’m not sure I want to do that.

But then maybe the REAL question is: Why the F*** would a 50-year-old man give a damn about whether or not people find his blog popular?! Why would he compare his blog to a 16-year-old’s blog?! Well, maybe YOU need to get over the idea that there’s such a huge difference between a 50-year-old and a 16-year-old. Especially when you’re talking about a man who’s never had children. Believe it or not, there isn’t really that much difference between a single 50-year-old man and a 16-year-old! šŸ˜€


P.S. Don’t you think that little girl on my header is incredibly cute?! She has such bright, shining eyes and such a happy smile! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ I wish ALL children had cause to smile like that! šŸ™‚ Does it make your heart melt and your soul smile, like mine?
