PAGE VIEW WHORING

My daily statistics are reaching dizzying heights as internet people frantically search get more information on “benedict cumberbatch”, “benedict cumberbatch beautiful” and “benedict cumberbatch make-up” to see what all the fuss is about, leading to  ponderings on the nature of fame, pageviews, and male beauty. Or “beauty”.

I wonder whether the hundreds of people who have read that particular post got what they wanted: was their curiosity about “benedict cumberbatch make-up” satisfied? Do they now know whether they should consider him beautiful or not? The only time before that my stats were so high was when I dropped a link to “Iranian dinner party” on a website to do with food, or dinner parties, and I got a deluge of clicks from people really really interested in finding out what was eaten at Iranian dinner parties.

So, food and sex. The great drivers of humanity, and page views. I will admit, Gentle reader, that the thought crossed my mind to blog  a whole series of posts on the topic of “male beauty” and “benedict cumberbatch”- indeed, one could consider it as performing some sort of public service, as it seems people really need some insight in this area. And I could do it, no doubt. But really? When you start thinking like that, you realize you might as well run a porn site, and be thrilled from the number of hits and views you’re getting. I am no blog whore. There is no point in blogging about anything other than what I really feel I  need to blog about at any given moment- if it happens to be f & s, then fine. But if not, then one  must accept that the complete lack of interest among the general internet public is the price one  pays for luxuriously blogging about  c-section scars, children’s snot, or how I feel about Axl’s fall. No-one, or very few people will  read it, and if I really feel I need to boost my page views, well, I know how to do it. “benedict cumberbatch beauty”

  1. Really interesting and distinctive post. I like items like making more homework, developing writing skills, and
    also related things. These help in being a professional on
    this topic. Your post is very helpful to my family because people like you devoted time
    to learning. Regularity is the key. But it is not that easy, as has been
    designed to be. I am not saying I am an expert like you and plenty of times I feel like giving it up.
    With a person like me, your posting is of good aid and booster.
    Thank you sharing.
