This Blog

And so in my attempt to market this blog and blah blog my way to riches in the pay you to post and blog and make millions and billions online in the bloggerland blogosphere, someone left a comment on my “Sell This Product” posting yesterday that went like, “yer blog sucks and you are an adwhore.”. Now that leads me to wondering, what is an ad whore? Is that the same as a marketing whore. Does that Internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have a definition for that. Is that someone who is a whore for marketing, as the word sounds self explanatory. And I do seem to find myself lost in Bloggerland these days, as I am forever trying to figure out how to get rich Internet quick without ever having to leave home. And I do long for that Google page ranking of a thousand so much that I would like to repost this Ode To Blogging. And I am forever reading about that newly learned Internet marketing term “SEO”, as in optimize this site for those search engines; so much that I find myself cramming this site with every noun, verb, and place I can think of. And I am still forever trying to figure out ways to market, promote and build links for that link popularity thing for this blog to reach a bazillion readers a day. And I don’t think I will be getting rich Internet quick anytime soon with my one blog, as I still find myself blogging for pennies a day. And short of winning the lottery, I realize I cannot quit my day job anytime soon. And I have posted on every forum and quorum I can think of trying to advertise this blog. And short of walking around with a billboard attached too myself and a bullhorn in my hand yelling out my websites name, I am running out of ideas on how to market this blog. Maybe I should try skywriting in the sky with an airplane, or maybe I should read that 27 + 1 Tips for Building and Maintaining a Blog Audience again, or look for some more of those endless how to make millions online blogs, tutorials and manuals to read now. And what does the term “riches” mean anyway? Silver, gold and treasures, do you trust in them. And what if they perish. What profit do you have if you gain the whole world and lose your own soul. That could be a whole another blog posting. And what about that verse; “For the love of money is the root of all evil: while some have coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows”. And how do bloggers get thousands and millions and billions of page views a day? I still have yet to figure that one out. Is there a magic trick to all of this? This blogging in a web 2.0 world, user generated content thing has got me going. Have a great day

Sex Rehab?

No sex ads in the paper anymore for the New York Press? Wow, now that’s news. That’s an article I read in their paper this week. For they have repented, for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. In reality, The New York Press’s article says that their paper has a new owner, Manhattan Media, which bought the New York Press last week. Manhattan Media says sex sells, but not in the New York Press, as sex ads drive away mainstream advertisers. As of this week, the New York Press is no longer accepting explicit advertising with photos. So how is everyone going to call the back pages of the Village Voice for sex now? Oh, I forgot, half of the Village Voice back pages are still sex ads and pharmaceutical ads. And how is everyone going to locate that escort, prostitute, massage parlor, xxx theater and sex shop now that has already been exiled from 42nd street Disneyland to the back pages of the local newspapers? Long Live Sex in the New York Press.

Disney Kicks The Habit

Wow. I read this article in yesterdays AM New York and Metro newspapers that Disney has kicked the habit of smoking in its films. Disney will discourage smoking in its family oriented films. This is groundbreaking and that’s great. Now if only Disney could kick the habit of using the image of guns in its films, progress would be made. And not just Disney, every form of advertising. If only Disney and every other advertiser could ban the images of guns on their posters, commercials, films and television shows then maybe there would be hope for the state of this world. Apparently the Disney committee held some hearings about the effect of movie images on children and that the studio would place anti-smoking public service announcements of DVDs of any future films that feature cigarette smoking. Walt Disney shares your concerns regarding deaths due to cigarette smoking. That’s great. Now if only Disney, and not just Disney but other media companies, major Hollywood studios and every advertiser on planet earth could could follow Disney’s lead and share their concerns about deaths due to the use of the images of guns in advertising and kick the habit of using the images and depiction of guns in advertising and discourage the use of guns in their advertising campaigns and hold committee hearings about the effect of movie images and guns on children and place anti-gun public service announcements and messages on DVDs and in theaters everywhere, that would be great. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
