Want more traffic to your blog? I know how to get it. Shhhhh……lean in and I’ll whisper it in your ear. Closer…closer….there. The secret? Mention a celebrity name in your blog.
I auto-posted my post for Saturday – the one with the awards I received and passed along to other bloggers. And in that post I mentioned 7 random facts about myself. When I got up the next morning I logged on to alert my recipients of their award and visits to my blog were nearly off the charts – for me, anyway.
I was honored. Touched. You DO like me! And then I started brainstorming – people must have loved what I said about the model industry or our perception of the world we live in. That must be it! I am the prolific writer I always strived to be (ok, for the last two months anyway.)
But after further investigation I realized most of my hits were from some celebrity siting website and they were currently discussing a Kiefer Sutherland siting. I mentioned Kiefer (yeah, we’re on a first name basis) in my last post.
I thought I’d made it in Bloggy World. But I’m just a shameless name dropper. The kind you avoid at parties.
Just think of the traffic I would have received had I mentioned Taylor Swift, Michael Jackson or Megan Fox?
(Oooooo…I’m shameless that way.)
