Each weekday, WordPress chooses around ten blog posts to feature on their “freshly pressed” section of their homepage. On Friday, they picked this one I wrote about the dude who put his coat on the floor in front of him while he sat on the toilet in Borders. It was the second time they’ve “promoted” me. The first time was this post about crying at the movies with my kids.
I want all bloggers to experience a sudden traffic spike; it’s a freaking blast. If you have a blog, go directly to this article and learn what their looking for in a promotable post. I had planned on responding to each comment, but they kept piling up all weekend, and I’m lazy and neurotic anyway, so who knows if I’ll get around to that task.
What I CAN do is to say right here: THANK YOU to all who commented, subscribed, and clicked on that neat little “like” button (138 of you). I am reading all your comments, clicking on your names, and checking out your blogs.
Last time this happened I wrote this in the next post on August 1, 2010:
Well, time to publish this “freshly ignored” post. I found this to help others make it to “freshly pressed.” And now that I know how much fun it is, know what the requirements are, and actively try to accomplish it, I know sure as sh*! that it will never happen again.
Well, it DID happen again, so I’m going to keep paying attention to what happens in and around the restrooms, because that’s some popular shit right there. But I’ve been in that same restroom 4 times today and nothing’s going on. I did blow my nose on the same paper towel I dried my hands on. Is this acceptable? Let me know if it’s something I should examine further.
