Porn and Sex and Blog Popularity in Ottawa

Tonight I was with some friends and we discussed the pornographic nature of some television shows. For instance, it was argued that werewolf porn is really just a kink for the fluffies, who are apparently some kind of cuddly fetish group -- and possibly sometimes inclined to disguise as werewolves. This naturally brought us to further discussions about the secrets of getting an Ottawa readership for one's blog. This then brought us to talk about the ESI blog and its appreciated but rather stagnant readership. To grow, it was thought that we ESIs needed to be personal. However, our readers will know that this is something the ESI community completely avoids (so, therefore, beyond our ability). Realizing this, the next suggestion was that we needed to be sexual, especially in an Ottawa context. That was the word for the evening.

Well, the discussion came around to the the core issue: How to get readership when you are a group of people without a single voice for readers to follow, not into revealing personal details, not independently famous, and not interested in working too hard to achieve it? Really, to me, given that we can't discuss our personal lives with any real gore, it's clear that discussing or engaging in public sex is beyond us. So, anyone have some suggestions about how to increase readership other than producing pornography or becoming personal?

I still say we cut a deal with Duncan and bring him back to my place. He obviously isn't happy over at Zoom's and he'll appeal to the fluffies.

And don't forget the spike we had in our readership the last time he was here.

Conche, I believe that you meant Furry and not Fluffy. Duncan, for example, is a Fluffy, and our own Coyote could be mistaken for a Furry

From 'mangy' to 'furry' in one week. Thanks, Woodsy! Things are lookin' up!

The way to get lots of traffic seems to be getting links from far more popular blogs.

Perhaps the ESIs could seek to seduce and/or blackmail those who run the kind of blogs that get millions of hits a day.

Thanks, Milan. We're all really good at seduction and blackmail...and in that order.

Duncan's VERY happy at zoom's place, thank you very much. He LIKES peeing in the bed.

By the way...speaking of fluffies and furries...did you know that my mother is now a self-declared fluffy?
