If you are one of the two people who have been following my blog from the beginning, you might have noticed that my posts took an odd turn into sticky political issues.
I don’t plan on continuing down that road for very long.
I wanted to see if I could write an article targeted for a fringe group without really agreeing with their views at all. The result was a sloppy, unfocused piece that they thought was trash. Looking back, I do too. If I had to rewrite it (and maybe I will), I would make this my thesis: Men are struggling to attract long-term partners because they’re being relentlessly outperformed in the workforce, and women show little interest in being the breadwinner to support a loser’s children. I would also structure it more like an essay.
Still, it earned me 29¢ according to Google AdSense. That’s 28¢ more than I had earned previously.
And I did actually get some good feedback from people.
I’m committed to trying everything in my power to bring traffic to my blog; that includes sounding like a madman. If anyone has any suggestions, feel free. I plan on using the analytics data to show other bloggers in this niche that I can write controversial articles that will temporarily shake things up. I’m going to take a short break from pot-stirring and go back to what I was writing about before. Then I’m going to write a couple of hit pieces, one on a big-name political commentator and the other on a self-help author.
Frankly, I just want to see what will happen.
Law 6) Court Attention At All Costs
It is a common mistake to imagine that this peculiar appearance of yours should not be controversial, that to be attacked is somehow bad. Nothing could be further from the truth. To avoid being a flash in the pan, and having your notoriety eclipsed by another, you must not discriminate between different types of attention; in the end, every kind will work in your favor.
They want drama.
