One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
So the Life64 blog gets around 20 hits a day, more or less. I know – it’s nothing to brag about, but check out June 12 – what happened there?
This was the date I posted the Review of the Kindle e-book: The Playboy Interviews: Men of Letters. I am surmising that queries for “Playboy” picked up this post and brought some additional traffic to the site, who were expecting to see more of what Playboy is known for, and probably not a review of a book of interviews with authors.
I’ve seen this same dynamic before: When I posted Typewriter Pr0n in 2012, featuring pictures of old typewriters, it generated a similar spike in traffic. Alice Denham (fully clothed) and her typewriter were featured in one of the pictures. She has the distinction of being the only woman to have published an article in the same issue of Playboy that she posed in, and the hits bumped up.
For the record, I’m not trying to artificially inflate hits on the blog with the Playboy references – it’s completely innocent, legit stuff. Still, I’m amused. With the internet brimming with all the porn anyone can imagine… some porn seekers still stumbled onto my little blog about writing.
