But my readers are loyal, and I thank you.

    Over the 18 — yes 18 — years I’ve been blogging, I’ve received a ton of advice about how to get my traffic up. Here are the most memorable bits:
    1. Post racy pictures.
    2. Swear a lot.
    3. Start fights in the comment section.
    4. Accuse people who disagree with you of racism, sexism, and having nasty social diseases.
    5. Comment a lot on other, popular sites, and be controversial.
    6. Hey! More racy pictures!
    7. Recipes are good.
    8. Talk about sex, cars, and sports to bring the “guys” in.
    9. Look, if you can’t give us more racy pictures, at least post pics of your cats.
    10. Keep your vocabulary down to about eighth grade level.

    I think I’m zero for ten.

    No to racy pictures….that would most certainly run me off.
    No starting fights.
    These are good:
    5. Comment a lot on other, popular sites, and be controversial.
    6. Hey! More racy pictures!
    8. Talk about sex, cars, and sports to bring the “guys” in.


    AND, take the time to go on other’s sites (Tea Party, etc.) and leave something that you have found they haven’t found….leave your website as the source…of course, then that source…you give the original source. They will come over here.

    I do that daily, especially being contrite and not controversial. LOL

  6. 07/17/2015 10:02

    I try.

  7. 07/17/2015 10:04

    Understood, Francis. My numbers aren’t big, but looking at those advice bits, I don’t do a lot of those things either.

  8. 07/17/2015 10:04

    Thank you, ma’am.

    Where is that “nod” emoticon?

    Keep on truckin!! Keep your powder dry, your friends close, and your enemies closer, and remember the fella looking back at you is the only one you have to answer to (other than the Man Upstairs….but that’s understood). I lurk more than comment lately, but still pop in. You may be surprised at how many folks (and or federal agents) stop by!

    GuyS, we will win if we but try.

    Keep your chin up. You are a brilliant contributor, but for certain subjects.

    You can’t worry too much about the numbers.

    Worry about the quality of what you say and know you are on the right side of humanity. If the quality is there it will become known.

    Gimmicks are just that. People seek out quality of thought and affirmation of the fact that they are not alone. Keep up the good work. And to all the rest of your readers remember- you are not alone.

    I only come here cause somebody made this my default home page and I dont know how to change it! LOL…… Actually, I have been trying to figure out how long its been that I’ve been interacting with the online persona I know as Clambake….. 2007? 2008? (way back when the Rott was alive)

    Kindred spirit / same but different……still hope to one day get a chance to meet with you and throw some rounds down range. …In the mean time…

    Green Grass & High Tides Forevaaaah!

    The Rott is still alive, but it did seem much smaller at the Rottfest I went to last year. Ah well, the big dog coils in the darkness, preparing to strike. And excellent choice of bumper music there, my brother from another mother.

    And a deep thank you, FX. I do try to either create or borrow as speaks my heart. I’m very pleased to note that I am not alone.

    Chris, it is “quality vs. quantity.”
    I don’t go on the Tea Party sites all that much… gets too loaded down…and I have like 20 replies in my inbox I NEVER get to.

    You have a style..AND HEART…that I don’t find on the Tea Party sites.
    Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the Tea Party….that is not an issue.

    You just have THAT STYLE ABOUT YOU and a Depth as well.

    Bows, blushing slightly.

    I admire you as everyone else does also. You are extremely intelligent and have a flair about you that is unique.

  20. 07/20/2015 01:44

    I would but suppose that that is me being me.
