« Part 74: David Has a Great Point Part 75 of Extremely Average series Part 76: I hate it when that happens... »

It was suggested by Outputter that I put a teaser up each day, and let people know that I have added a new post to my blog.

I was thinking about this today, and there are lots of people who have said that they aren’t intersted in reading content outside of the community. This is fine with me. There have been some people that have come over to the new blog, so this is for them.

But it got me thinking, could I write a good enough teaser to get the likes of David or Spalm to click?

I am not sure if I can. Of course, there wouldn’t be anyway for me to tell if I had succeeded, unless they admitted to the click through. It is almost like a challenge…hmmm…they seem like tough cookies, so it will take some thought. I am quite sure that both of them are way to clever to be tricked with promisses of super models who stopped over to help me with a glue up.

So I will not even try to tease them into clicking tonight…but let it be known, my creative juices are flowing and I will launch some sort of diabolical campaign soon…very soon.

Today’s post, was mostly about me going on a bit of photography outing and taking a bunch of pretty pictures of the Meeks farm and surrounding areas, in rural Martelle.

This link is for anyone who would like to check out the blog.

I have a double secret link, just for Spalm and David. http://bit.ly/by0htp If you aren’t David or Spalm, paws off.

I take exception to the expression “curiosity killed the cat” but, subtract one, wink, wink.

Hi Brian.
Tease me once, shame on you. Tease me twice…..

Wow, my fifteen seconds of fame :>)

I clicked on the secret link from the email that I received from LJs regarding this post. In fact I clicked on it a dozen times in case you were counting. I clicked on this LJ post a dozen times in case you were counting there too. Funny that.

Nice to see you still are here and thriving.
You know where to find me.
I like your curiosity,
Steve

Steve,

LOL…That was great. I just checked the numbers and that link has been clicked 38 times. So you aren’t the only one. I really chuckled at that. Well done.

Outputter,

I have subtracted one paw print of the 38. Obviously there were other’s who couldn’t resist. I am going to have to rethink my strategy regarding SPalm and David.

Don’t get hung on view counts. It will get in your head. Seriously. The web is weird.

The first blog I published at LJs now has 36,384 hits, and those are real. But who’s counting.

Ouch.
I was not being cute. Those are real views. It was a big hit at http://www.stumbleupon.com/

It was a weird trip when they started rolling in. I did not know what was happening. It just went viral. Photobucket hosts my photos for that blog and I had to pay money for the expanded bandwidth.

I never brought this subject up here before, but it seemed like a good time. I was actually just trying to advise. My sarcasm gets me into trouble sometime.
