I know this is going to sound crazy but the post about the 6 hottest celebs is the best post I’ve ever made. Sure it’s NSFW and filled with pictures of hot female celebrities but in terms of work put into the post and how it turned out, it hit the mark. Every single file name was titled appropriately. I made every title of each picture fit what was happening in the picture. I even made a caption for each picture. The gallery’s worked out well and the Gifs at the bottom were good close outs. Each celebrity was relevant and hot and I picked pictures that have to be in their best ever taken. All that being said, what did the post produce?
I made a wall post on the Katy Perry’s Rack Facebook page and left a link on Maxim’s Twitter. The amount of FB shares on the page is 5 which is well above the normal 0. My Broad St post brought in 38 shares for a benchmark. With this minimal effort, the page did not bring in more than usual traffic. This is the life of a blogger. The satisfaction from additional traffic doesn’t correlate to how good the post is. It’s bittersweet because I know internally that the site is improving and producing solid content. Other people are not benefiting though which is where I’m at a standstill. I’m not the type of guy who is going to make self improving bullshit to actually help people. I’m going to create posts that when you come to the page you are entertained for a brief moment. That’s it.
With this being said, I want to bring back the poll to get an idea of how many people actually read this site. I’m not threatening that I’ll never post again unless I get a certain amount of people, that’s childish. I want to understand how many human beings read these posts. All you have to do is click the poll. I’m hoping for more than 10 and max out at a star shooting 50. 38 people is the max any one of my polls has ever gotten.
