A moment of quiet and tasteful reflection

.
It never fails - make a couple of posts with words like iPod and Wang in them, as I have done recently, and watch the hits roll in.
.
Sadly, few if any of these visitors stay for more than a few seconds though

.
I'm not complaining. I have had decent levels of traffic into this blog over the last few weeks, largely due to a referral from Alexa and her New York Escort Confessions page …

.
I must write and say thank you at some point. I think she was ensnared by my original gratuitous use of the word iPod in a blog posting title and was then favourably impressed by my picture of a rock that looked like a tadger in New Zealand. Well, it is quite an impressive hunk of limestone.
.
Thanks also to those who've left positive comments over the last few months. I've reciprocated by linking to your sites on my blogroll which should hopefully help a little with the search engine listings. Apologies if I haven’t left much in the way of feedback on your own blogs. I do read them but normally after I've made my own postings and feeling spent, comment-wise.

.
Anyway, New Year's resolutions for this blog …

  • Shorter posts, partly because people prefer shorter posts but mostly because I should be doing something more productive with my time
  • Less heavy thinking and more gratuitous use of lavatorial humour to retain the casual visitor
  • More pictures of limestone outcrops that look like human anatomy

Stef, I like that I have something interesting and time consuming to read here, please don't change that.

Oh wait, you were being sarcastic.

You were being sarcastic, weren't you?

Oooh, stop it I feel all embarrassed now.

Actually, I was being ironic, which admittedly is much the same as sarcasm as far as I'm concerned, but doesn't sound quite so mean and a little more refined.

But, I did flick through my recent blogs earlier today and realised that they were getting quite long again and focusing largely on heavy, philosophical stuff which bores 99% of people rigid. As evidenced by not many people staying for very long even after being lured into visiting my blog.

I have ideas in my head which I feel impelled to communicate. I'm not saying that they are any more valid than other people's thoughts but I am a driven man. And it's possible that I may be able to communicate those ideas more effectively if they are concealed beneath pictures of rocks that look like tadgers.

So, this week, as an experiment and for a limited time only, less philosophy and more wang ;-)
