It's Friday. I know what's going to happen. It's the same thing every week and i'm kind of undecided if what happens is a good thing or a bad thing.
Back in early February, i wrote a post called, Friday Cattle Auction. It wasn't a particularly good post. It was one of those posts where i tell you about some of the things that happen to me over the course of what i do to make a living. The thing is, it seems to be a wildly popular post. But, maybe it isn't? I mean, nobody has ever left a comment there. No one ever said to me, "that Friday Cattle Auction post is some really good stuff, i wish you would do more like that one!" Yet, it sits #3 on my list of most popular posts. (i'll wait if you want to glance over and look at that list to confirm that.)
It only just occurred to me that, on Friday, is when i get all of the hits on my Friday Cattle Auction post. Because......on Fridays, some people actually google Friday Cattle Auction. (sometimes it takes me a while to become aware of the obvious.)
After discovering this, i'm not exactly sure how i should feel? Granted, i'm a little sad about it. I don't know what causes a post to be popular. I guess, in the back of my mind i was thinking that maybe i had accidentally written a masterpiece that was so poignant that people, after reading it, were left without words to express their satisfaction. But i've gone back to reread it and i'm pretty certain that's not the case. Also, i feel like i'm letting people down. Google is sending people here to get news about the Friday Cattle Auction and i have nothing to offer them. I dealt with this issue for martial arts guy but if you want the cattle prices i don't know what to do? I could link an actual auction site but i don't know where you're from. I would like the information to be relevant to you. So, i'm at a bit of a loss.
This has taken on a bit of a life of it's own. It's sort of like the mythical, perpetual energy machine, or a Russian nuclear reactor melting it's way to the Earths core. I don't know how to stop it? ........or, if i even want it to stop? It's still traffic, isn't it? But it's accidental traffic. I'm torn.
So, there's only one course of action to take. I have to create an EPIC post! So EPIC, that everything else will pale in comparison to it. I'm talking Pulitzer Prize shit here! Plus, i have to come up with a title. Not just any title, it has to be something people google every fricken day! If i can generate enough traffic, i may be able to blow Friday Cattle Auction right off the popular posts list.
Right, lets get started.................um..........i may have to think on this a while.
............or, i could just go back and change the title, but then i wouldn't get so much traffic, sigh. (i'm secretly hoping to get some of that google, perpetual energy machine traffic by using that title.)
