Motivated

I have an acquaintance, a 20-something university student, who keeps a personal blog. His writing isn't his strongest suit - frankly, it's about as refreshing and scintillating as being pummeled with dusty tennis balls. He is, however, exceptionally good-looking, which may explain why his readership is several orders of magnitude larger than mine. His posts tend to look a little like this:

P.S. prettyponies, you beat me by six seconds. This ain't over, bitch.

Wow! I like spaghetti bolognaise too! I wonder what else we have in common? I look like a potato, I live on the opposite side of the planet and I'm 22 years older than you, so it isn't likely to be much, but hope springs eternal when you're as desperate as I am!

Frozen spaghetti bolognaise!? That's terrible! You need a wife! Especially one who can cook, owns three cats, and lives at 12/34 Coquette Cres, telephone 0417 992 099 after 8 o'clock...



And so on. I guess popularity does have its downside.

I hope he's at least smart enough to have ads on his blog, if he's getting that many hits.

I agree. Quantity of readership is where it's at.

And make sure to ratchet down the quality of your posts. My "girl afraid of pickles" article is already rolling in the hits.
