Carnival of the Vanities, #2

Carnival of the Vanities, #2

I was talking to a another blogger about traffic the other day. It doesn't matter which blogger. We all talk about traffic, and most of us have the same lament. "My traffic's too small." Never mind the ubiquitous penis ads. If spammers really wanted to make money, we would get e-mail in our in boxes advertising magic gels and devices to make our unique visitor numbers go up.

FREE TRAFFIC ENLARGEMENT!
Thousands have enlarged their readership by 3 to 5 hundreds in weeks using these blogger tested and proven methods!
Available for immediate download!
FREE INFO!
Visit our site today and get free information.
Using Our Techniques You Will Learn:
How to please your reader, Post longer and more frequently, How to avoid embarrassing premature equivocation!
And of course how to ENLARGE your traffic totals in just 2 weeks!

The only secret I know is quantity. Post something everyday, and someone will come to read it. Posting something twice a day is even better. Post as often as you can. Eventually, quality grows out of the sheer mass of quantity like roses from beds of manure. The collected correspondence of Mark Twain runs to nearly five thousand pages. Not all of it is going to be the literary equivalent of Huckleberry Finn. Out of those 5000 pages there are bound to be a few where Twain whines about the typewriter, or curses a few politicians, or talks about the cute thing his daughter did that day. I'll bet you at some point he even complains about how small his readership is.

So post, and post often. It's the only way to get to Carnegie Hall. No, you're still not likely to be the next Mark Twain. But if you practice, you might be the next Bret Harte. Myself, I'm aiming for Booth Tarkington.
