I was walking through the back room and Jan had the television on as background noise while she was doing something for school. "CSI Miami" was on, and for some reason, I sat down for a minute to watch it. David Caruso was doing a scene, and I dislike him with a vengeance, but I watched anyway.
Later I was doing something in the garage when I thought "David Caruso is a dick". So I went upstairs and wrote a post on my other blog with that title. It only took about 5 minutes, and my other blog is where I just throw quick thoughts out, because I don't like Twitter.
So, last night, I was wrapping things up before I turned in and thought I would check my sitemeter on both blogs, because I think it's cool to see who has tripped across them and how they got there. My eyes kind of bugged out when I looked at the number of hits I received on the "David Caruso Is A Dick" post. I had more hits on that one post than I get on both blogs in a month! Now ... no one commented, which I thought was strange, but they were definitely looking at it.
I sat there and wondered "why"? There were only two answers. One; either a lot of people loathe David Caruso as much as I do, or Two; people gravitate to something with "Is A Dick" in the title. I googled "David Caruso" and got some things titled "David Caruso is a douchebag", "David Caruso Sucks" and "Fuck David Caruso"; but I'm not so sure that was the draw. I think it was "**** Is A Dick" that caused the sitemeter overload.
If this is true, then it stands to reason that one could increase traffic on his or her blog by simply adding "Is A Dick" to any post title. Let's try that with my post yesterday: "Suddenly This Summer Is A Dick!" Yes, that has a nice ring to it.
Better yet, I can take one of my orphaned blogs and just re-title it "Is A Dick", and put any crap that I want to in there, and no one will care.
