I blog this much is true.

April 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’ve only been blogging for a few months now, but in this short period of time, I’ve quickly realized:

1) Blogging is addictive. If you start looking at your stats (i.e., page views, click-throughs, Internet searches) you will drive yourself crazy trying to build a readerbase. Oh, and you’ll probably end up visiting your own Web page about 20 times every day just to see your view count — if only they included your own visits.

2) The masses live for celebrity culture. Including the name of any relevant celebrity in your tags or your blog will assuredly cause your page views to sky rocket. Case in point: I wrote about L.A. Fashion Week sometime back and briefly mentioned Lauren Conrad’s collection — or lack there of — for the next week it was my number one post.

3) Stick to stereotypes and animals. Blogging about stereotypes (Stuff White People Like) and animals (I Can Has Cheezburger) will get you a book deal — unfortunately said book is bound to end up on a table in the Urban Outfitter’s discount basement or in the clearance bin of an overstock store.

Blargh.

    I agree with 積.It’s much better if we can make aniaml cruelty to become a “taboo”, much like bullying or even murder. Raising the penalty is a resort to reflect that this is unacceptable rather than as a deterrant – as we discussed earlier those who do it do not feel they have the danger of being caught….Connie
