Musing: How TO get a million blog hits a day

February 23, 2007

Two months ago I wrote an article called “How NOT to get a million blog hits a day,”discussing some ways people use controversial topics as a way to generate exposure to their website.  Well, I’m glad to report that I discovered on topic which did generate a lot of exposure for my own site during the past three months, and that is the Dodge Nitro commercial “Beautiful World.”  In four months, my site has been visited 1667 times.  The Dodge Nitro commercial post has received 712 visits, accounting for 43% of the site activity.  See?  A simple commercial is all it takes, and not pictures of Saddam hanging or Spears walking around without underwear on.

Now I love the commercial for both the song and the special effects, but I never guessed that so many of you out there also felt the same.  To all of you who visited the site, I want to say thank you, and I hope I can find another commercial for your enjoyment.

Maritime: SS Green Island (Part 2)

February 22, 2007

Surprisingly, I have received many hits due to searches on the SS Green Island.  For those that have not read my November article on the ship, she is a LASH, or a Lighter Aboard SHip vessel.  To all of you that are searching for information on the Green Island, please leave me a message letting me know if you have sailed on the ship at some point, or what information you are looking for.  I have a few personal pictures of the ship that I need to scan and get uploaded, if that is what you are looking for.  If you are checking out the latest status on the ship, I will do my best to find that for you.  But please, leave me a message to make yourself known.  I have not found a Green Island dedicated website yet for former crew members, so maybe we can start one here.

Thank you in advance, and I hope to hear from you soon.

I’m sorry for the delay in posting some recent information due to “real life” taking up my free time as of late. Look forward to my reviews on “Night in the Museum,” “Cheaper by the Dozen 2,” and “Pan’s Labyrinth” in the near future among other things. Thanks for your understanding, and check back again soon.

Enjoy!
