Traffic

All right so it's late and I'm slightly drunk (meaning I have to be extra careful about typos) so I'm going to be short here, but I wanted to say I've just taken the time over the weekend to register on Feedburner, which I think is very interesting.

Apparently nobody's really reading (apart from my dad and my flatmate who I've mentioned in some previous post) so it won't matter much if I say I have no subscribers right now. On the other hand, it was fascinating to find out that I've had 35 visitors on my blog today and over two thirds of them were looking for the Nintendo logo. I wrote a series of posts about my favourite brands when I started the blog and was looking for work and it looks like that pays off more in terms of traffic than anything else I've written (not that I have so many pearls of wisdom to share, but it'll come...).

It's just interesting to find out that if I just copy logos and ads of popular brands on my blog, I'll get much more traffic... But then again, I'd rather have fewer people interested in what I have to write than more people just searching stuff on Google Images...

All right then, enough pointless rambling - I have an idea about a series of posts that could be very interesting and could drive traffic - and about ice cream! - let's see how that works out...

Hey, thanks! I'm sure there are a few more out there reading, but I thought it sounded more dramatic that way ;o)
