An Interesting Observation...

June 20, 2009

Since it's Saturday, and Cate at Show My Face was kind of enough to kick this whole thing off, I thought I'd join in on the Six Word Saturday Thing.

Poignant Social Commentary Via My Blog

I picked up on this little trend late Thursday evening, but since I teach you guys how to pick up chicks in the subjunctive on Friday, I waited until today to record my observations.

Monday, I retold the story of St. Vitus, the Patron Saint of Epilepsy and Actors.
I got nine comments on the story, one of which was my own.

Thursday, I told you about how I gave Colin Firth a semen mustache.
I got thirty comments, two of which were mine, and I got three new followers and four new commenters.

...

Apparently, you people are far more enthralled with what comes out of my penis as opposed to some kid who survives being dunked in a vat of boiling lead.

I don't know whether I should be honored and a little bit humbled or if I should be concerned and a little bit scared.

Talk about more famous and pretty redheads... I'll make up accounts and follow Crown Of Thistles with them also.

Call Me Cate said...

I read both. I have to admit I'm a huge Colin Firth fan so perhaps that one got more of my attention?

Thanks for participating!

Scope said...

Make that 30 comments. I really meant to leave on back then, but ran out of time. I will go back and do so now.

It's so weird what the blogosphere will respond to isn't it?

I totally thought the transparent flattery and nonsense of the Chronicles would be popular, but hardly anyone comments on them, and yet every time I waste blog space with whinging about PMS or something, everyone loves it.

You should mention a lion's penis. I did it once and google analytics tells me it's the most searched for key phrase that leads people to my blog - followed by midget porn. Go figure.

As one who has been reading and commenting on this blog since 2006, I have noticed that the posts about writing your books have decreased and the posts involving you and your sea-men have increased. The farewell posts to Brett Farve have remained fairly consistent over the years.

The net result seems to be more readers and commenters. That's good. But, gone are the days when your blog was my own personal commenting playground (along with Will Shannon and a few others, or course). Now I have to share it with people that actually have good comments.

Any sentence containing "Colin Firth" and "semen" is a happy sentence in my book :)

Jidai said...

Sometimes I fear I will turn into you as I age...

Cooper Green said...

I'm Colin Firth, and frankly, I'm scared shitless.

Melissa B. said...

Best way, is what I say!

Cora said...

Hello? We're pervy minded bastards. What the hell did you expect?!

That corgi :) said...

hi; just stopping by checking out all the 6-word Saturday entries; you have a very interesting blog; checked out some of your entries; it amazes me what entry people will comment on the most in one particular blog

I hope you enjoy your day; I have a feeling you probably are

betty

Kristine said...

How 'bout less of YOUR penis and more of Colin Firth's? I like that one even better.

But I also like penis-free stuff.

Just sayin'

Gwen said...

I'm such an ass that I didn't comment on either.

Cretin said...

Looking foward to your next ejaculate post.

Mr. Condescending said...

talk more about sex and I promise you will get more interaction. Heh.

gullybogan said...

Is there more Colin Firth semen stuff today, or should i cancel my subscription?

Fancy Schmancy said...

I always read, I just don't always feel witty enough to comment!

erin said...

Oh! Haha!
Both posts were awesome, but we in the blogging world like to feed off other people's pain, and the embarrassment your wife has to have from you talking about your sex life is so worth the posts about spluging.

Ashley said...

Anything involving Colin Firth will get you more girl readers...even it involves your...er...semen. Awkward!

Lisa-tastrophies said...

You don't Firth on the Colin and have no one comment. Besides, getting boiled alive is so.... 14th century. What do you expect?

otherworldlyone said...

I'm not surprised at all. The list of search words people have used to find my blog...they're all dirty. All of them.

snowelf said...

I was, um...really busy at work on the St Vitus day...

yea... that's it. :D

Del-V said...

I just come here for blowing shit up Tuesdays.

Nej said...

Vitus was Monday, Firth was Thursday...might have something to do with it!

Test it out...next week write about your penis on Monday and a dead Saint on Thursday and see what happens. :-)
