Puttin’ asses in the seats

This blog has never gotten much in the way of traffic. Even when I’m making multiple entries per day, fifty views is a pretty big deal. When I ignore this blog for months at a time, the view count can and does drop as low as two per day.

Not that any of this actually matters, mind you. I didn’t start this blog to generate or gauge interest in what I have to say. My views amount to little more than a small mound of manure in the grand scheme of things, and I’m not egomaniacal enough to believe otherwise. I started this blog solely to put into action my fervent belief that the Internet should be used for purpose God intended: cussing.

But this blog experienced a veritable explosion (by my standards, at least) of traffic last week thanks to my intarwebz buddy illusory tenant. iT chose to reveal his true identity in an interview with Milwaukee (WI) Public Radio last week. He announced the decision on his blog, and I later posted an announcement here. iT linked to my announcement here.

Turns out that iT is not just a superb writer and gifted analyst; he’s also quite the traffic generator. Thanks to iT’s link, my entry Extremist left wing hate blogger outs self vaulted to No. 2 on my all-time most-viewed-entries list in a matter of a few days. That entry knocked the wildly popular Hit That Fuckin’ Clown from second place over the weekend. All that stands between Extremist left wing hate blogger outs self and Subject to Complete Defeasance immortality is Molesto the Christian Clown, which still boasts a comfortable lead thanks to the fundamental human truth that everyone loves a story about a Christian clown with a penchant for traveling to foreign lands to boink little boys.

Update: Hit That Fuckin’ Clown struck back hard today, recapturing second place from Extremist left wing hate blogger outs self. Never underestimate the mass appeal of foul-mouthed civil litigants.

    Yeah, that iT is a definite traffic generator, that’s for sure. He puts fannies in the seats no matter where he goes and what he does.

    You know it, Zach. The man’s got charisma on top of charisma.

    Lemme tell ya, nobody’s more surprised than me. But, hell, whatever it takes. SCD, in a perfect world, would be blawg #1.

    I got nothing on Fuckin’ Clown or Molesto, but for a time, this was my most hit-generating post (interestingly, a lot originating from Northern Europe, although none of them hung around much when they realized their Google search terms had led them to some boring-ass State court of appeals opinion):

    I love kiddy porn.

    It probably wasn’t your intent, but any action that has the effect of messin’ with Northern Europeans is an ipso facto public service.
