You must eat life or it will eat you.


You must eat life or it will eat you.

I read this proverb recently but do not remember from which country it comes. Whatever. it is very true.

How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog in Less Than a Year

I  am back from a wonderful all too brief holiday in Ethiopia and Zanzibar (plus Dubai en route but Dubai does not deserve to be mentioned along with two places as enchanting as Ethiopia and Zanzibar) about which I shall blog very much. But I wanted to post this link which should serve as an aide memoire for me and might interest other bloggers out there even though it dates from February 2009.

I particularly liked this:



You can never go wrong in the blogosphere by having a laugh at the expense of feminists. All sane people hate feminism, and no one hates feminism more than smart, successful, independent women who've made it on their own without all that idiotic "Sisterhood Is Powerful" groupthink crap. And if you are one of those fanatical weirdos who takes that Women's Studies stuff so seriously that you're offended by Stephen Green's sexist objectification of Christina Hendricks and her mighty bosom -- well, sweetheart, to paraphrase Rhett Butler: "You should be offended, and often, and by someone who knows how."

Hopefully La Hendricks whom I admire vastly and her bosom will bring me traffic. 
And here is Miss Hendricks, a stately galleon.







Another link I came across is this on the same topic of increasing blog traffic. I shall look for more recent links if I get round to it.

Note written in October: I find that a post with pictures about Jayne Mansfield, included on the thin pretext of her spoofing the 1964 US Presidential election,  has zoomed up the pop chart of my blog posts.
