More Strange Stats
On January 17 I posted a sort of "part 2" to my story from last year about a text meant for kinkster going to a co-worker. On that post I took a photo of Erica's bottom and in Photoshop put it on an iPhone screen. I'm a writer--that's one of the things I do for a living, so to me, words are everything (even though I can be rather sloppy with this very blog). Pictures, notsomuch. People like pictures. They speak a thousand words, I'm told. So when I was looking up my stats for my previous post on the subject, I was very surprised to see the number of hits that Jan. 17 post received. 578 in one day. That may not seem like a lot, but it's an all-time record for me for one day. Why is that? I think it's the photo.
So I'm going to do a test. I'm going to take some of Erica's spanking shots (with her prior permission, of course) and randomly pepper future posts with them--just to see if my traffic goes up. Why? I dunno. I would love to believe I'm witty, insightful, occasionally provocative--a raconteur. But if a picture is worth a thousand words--or 578 hits--perhaps I need to be writing more wittily, more insightfully, more provocatively...or at least 2,000 words.
