My last post set Crankoutloud stat records. I’m pretty sure I can attribute this attention to the word “boob” being in the title. Apparently, boobs sell. I figured I’d keep this gravy train rolling. I figured I’d tell some more stories about skanky bartenders, apparently Gerald has quite a stash (of stories, not bartenders), and throw in some more body part words, and maybe the word “sex” “naked,” or “porn.”
But then I realized I missed the observation of an important anniversary. August 3rd marked my one year blogiversary! I know, I’m excited too! Yep, we’ve come a long way, me and you, dear reader. I started off not knowing what the hell I was doing, and now, look at my site a whole year later. The progress is staggering. The beautiful default WordPress settings, the same consistent font, post after post, the same Facebook profile picture. You can depend on me, dear reader, no crazy aesthetic changes for this site!
I went back to take a look at a to-do list I included in my third post. Looks like I can check most of the items off. But now I’m in desperate need of a new blog “to do” list.
- Figure out why I am still unable to see ALL the search strings that hit my site. Stupid Google Analytics. Something about SSL and security and privacy and blah blah blah. I say hogwash. There are plenty of other bloggers who see all the funny
and sometimes grotesquely pervertedsearch strings. I mean, can you imagine the search hits on my last “boob” post? Come on! I’m dying to know what words landed the Hong Kong and Philippine guys on my site!
- Take a more professional looking picture for my site instead of using the same FB pic from three years ago. But… but… it’s such a good picture and I rarely take such a good picture! I’m usually unhappy about my hair, or my eyelids are sure to close mid-snap and I end up looking like I should be hosting some smoke & toke site instead. Hey man…
- Figure out how to submit posts to the big sites. I’m talkin’ Scary Mommy, Blunt Moms, and hell yeah, I’m talkin’ Huffington Post, baby! Hmm… but then I I have to actually write something first to submit for consideration. One of these days, one of these days…
- Figure out how to add a little advertising to my site, and I mean a little. Maybe a banner or two. Then I could watch the cents roll in. Cha-ching.
So anyway, Happy Blogiversary to Crankoutloud! I’m sure there are years and years more of exciting posts just waiting to be written by yours truly.
