On August 20 I was a growing blog…

Ah. It’s like a nice and distant memory. Just happy to say it happend once!

So what’s the key to being a growing blog?

So far I’ve noticed that the more religion or controversy (but with a little tact) the better. Oh and it doesn’t hurt to throw in sex and technology. If you do all four at the same time, then you are a genius! Politics: no brainer. And if you mix it up with sex, definite win but gee with the way politics are, both are pretty much synonymous!

Splice in some Facebook talk and a dash of sports.

If you live in New York: bonus points. If you live in New York and write about it: guaranteed win. If you are someone trying to nip at the heels of worthless celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton, triple points. Especially if you mostly cover black celebrities.

If you are a crazed fan who is obsessed with a hottie from Prison Break, you are golden.

There you have it. I will keep adding to this list. Feel free to add to it as well. I’ll give you credit for it.

Here are some so far. There are also some ideas in the comments section…

“For Google juice use a nice long list of celebrities.
Today I used celebrities who have tried to commit suicide (via Mental_floss.)”

“Generally, the more people I annoy, the higher my technorati ranking.

“Sex, celebrity and a damn good title.. It’s all in the titles.” — Paul Baylay

“It would also be good to be an atheist and throw in a little religion bashing (even better just focus on the Christians). Atheism is like the new craze or something like that.” — Bacony Goodness

    Is there an RSS feed for your blog?

  4. Controversy is always good. As is anything sexual in nature (even if the context isn’t sexual). It’s a sad fact, but there are more perverts out there than anything else, and if you’re looking to simply drive traffic all you need to do is make even a tiny reference to something sexual. Pay no mind that intelligent stuff gtes passed over. Hell, some of my best posts (to me anyway) get just a few hits here or there, while my post on parents spanking their children has seen hundreds of hits simply because of the sexual connotation.

    I’m not really sure how thrilled I am with the high level of perverts out there. Do people really have nothing better to do with their little lives? Worse yet are the people who are obsessed with celebrity gossip. Yikes!

  7. go to your little side bar thingy and add the “Meta” function. That allows people to RSS you.

    And yeah, I know. I just can’t help myself sometimes.

  8. Thanks man, I had that up and then took it down for some reason!

  9. You, like me, write about whatever you want. Sometimes, that includes a bit of pop culture and voila, the hits on your blog spike. My sole recommendation is write for yourself and ultimatley that will get noticed because of your passion AND your solid writing. I noticed I made the list a couple of times and then realized it was because of the juvenile postings I had done those two days. WHat price fame (and readership)? Do you really want to appeal to a readership defined by the lowest common denominator?

  10. My only advice is to ignore all that shit, do your own thing.
    It’s difficult to be original on the web…there are only so many thinks to be thunk, but taking other ppls advice feels so much like copying them.

    Congrats on being on the “growing blogs” list. It feels great, doesn’t it?

    We’ve been around only a little longer than you. We’ve recently seen a huge jump in our incomming searches and other things that one can only get from having a backlog. You should see that soon as well.

  11. True about not copying, but I think everyone, especially new bloggers, can learn from the veterans who have successful blogs. Not really taking their ideas but gaining inspiration for their own.

  12. I’ve not slept all night, so I’m a little off in the “making sense” dept…
