|The Daily Drool|
I might be showing some of the symptoms. While size queens focus on length and girth, blogwhores obsess about other statistics. hmm... I've been blogging for 4 months, 3 days and, I've had 15,698 page views and 8413 site visits. So that works out to +2,100 visits per month and 1.9 pageviews per visit. And 602 comments work out to .....
Blogwhore: noun. A person who participates in all or most of the following:
- Spending large amounts of time posting entries on his/her blog about things no one other than them cares about.
- Tries any way possible to get others to read his blog.
- Posts comments on every blog he comes across in hopes that other bloggers will find and comment on his blog.
As a blogging virgin just four months ago, I remember feeling the trepidation as I published my first little post. And the excitement of my first comment! Wow! Ten pageviews!!!
The readership of my blog increased rapidly, but I quickly discovered that a provocative title is the surest way to double your pageviews. Spandex: God's Gift to Gay Men or Boxers or Briefs are good examples of this.
In the "serious" category, posts directed at men in the closet such as "Options for married closeted guys" were sure to generate the largest numbers of pageviews. Another sure way to increase page views and enthusiastic comments is by posting half-nekkid pics of myself in undies or a jockstrap. .
I can't wait to see the reaction to future posts such as, "Sucked my first cock" or "Lost my gay virginity." (note: these events haven't happened yet, but when they do, I promise, you'll be the first to read about them.) And to my concerned friends, when this does happen, I promise I will be safe, sensible and most likely be with someone I know and trust.
While I normally welcome increased readership, I was really alarmed at this turn of events. How did Hunkhunter come to list my blog on their site? My site has been swamped by a steady stream of visitors from around the globe including some countries I've never heard of! Wild!!! I assume that this traffic will slow down soon when my blog is no longer "featured" but gets buried in the tens of thousands of sites listed by Manhunt.
