This post is dedicated to the dashing, beautiful, capable, Immigration-hatin', budget-balancin', Republican Rico Suave, Jason Chaffetz. May the rest of us one day aspire to be as awesome as you tell us you are.
After adding a little widget called SiteMeter to the BWP, I noticed something interesting:
Most of my foreign blog visitors (alright, anybody coming from outside the Northern Utah Area) were being fed into Boyd Where Prohibited not because of the wildfire-like word of mouth that's spreading across the English-speaking world. It's not because of the crazy-good quality of writing that pervades the walls of this thing. Sadly, it's not even because of other bloggers linking to me.
Nope, most visitors get drawn in because of the titles to either one of two stories:
"We Heart Penguins"
"Stephenie Meyer Sucks the Blood Out of Literature"
Google "We Heart Penguins" and my 2007 post about the cute little black and white creatures is the first thing that pops up. The same result if you google "Stephenie Meyer Sucks" (that made me happy in a not-so-nice, but ever-so-intoxicating way).
So in that vein, and in an attempt to make my blog UBERLY POWERFUL IN ONE FELL STROKE--I've slipped the 10 most searched items on Google last year into the title of this entry. Hopefully I'll have 300,000 visitors per second within the day. I'll let you know once I register my first million...
But, wait! That's only the FIRST great experiment being conducted in this post.
The Second? A little thing called Erico Narcissicus. The greatest blog-venture of all time. Ready for it? Wait for it...
Wait for it....
I hereby TAG every single person in the world.
BOOM! There it is!
I know, I know..."That's So Ambitious!" you might say. Or "WOWZERS! That boy deserves the Nobel Prize for "'Aint Gonna Happen!" But this isn't just any tag; oh no... this is the first tag of its kind.
You see, instead of writing about yourself and sharing some small bits of your life with other readers out there, you're going to write about ME.
Yep, I'm going to take a step over that imaginary boundary between good and evil, embrace the blood-sucking leech that is my Id, and slough off that faux exterior of humility.
I'm going skinny dipping in the glorious mountain lake of my soul. And you know what? The water's fine. Come on in, amigos!
Enjoy, and to everyone reading this entry, consider yourself tagged!
