The life of a Blogger

Roughly once a week I sit at my computer trying to decide what to write about. I strive to bring content actual people want to read through humor, political ranting, and attempts at pseudo-original thoughts and insights. Still I average between 3 and 10 visitors a day, depending on how many sex sites and search engines have listed me in the complete pervert section.

I currently list on every search engine but you either have to search for my name directly, the title of this page, or really perverted porn to find me. I try to make my readers laugh, cry, think, or at least show some sign of life after having read my work. I have tried posting "Read Me" posts on the various other sites I frequent but in the end my primary readership has stayed the same since the beginning. I don't know how professional bloggers can survive on donations and advertising from their readership. I can't even get more than a few people to look at my page for more than a second, much less stay and actively give me feedback (or validation if you really care to psychoanalyze it.) I could ask everyone who reads this to tell at least one non-reading friend about me but that would be like Amway blogging. Oh well, such is the life of the attention whore...I mean blogger.

Amway Blogging would be very, very bad. I don't recommend it. I have tried to link your blog on other sites I frequent...but my interests cover such a wide range that most people (on other sites) just don't see the connection (to your blog) enough to want to check it out. Sorry.

I've re-vamped both of my blogspot blogs...I was beginning to get boring and losing topics before I ever began writing. Now I'm more focused and have better things to write about (for the most part). Don't forget to keep reading...there's gonna be new things all the time.
