I’m still trying to figure out what’s in it for me. My three most hit upon posts are about the Ukrainian topless protest group Femen. They were fun to write about, and a certain fugitive was kind enough to include me into his rule 5 round ups. Then people started linking, and, more importantly, search engines found me. From now on, whenever Femen is up to something, I get a surge of hits.
This Monday, Femen made it to the MSN front page with their protests of soccer tournament in Ukraine — they allege it brings in pimps. (Attention soccer fans: not all Ukrainian women are Femen hot.) I got nearly 1,000 page views that day. As much as it was exiting to see all the hits, I kind of doubt too many people looking for pictures of hot semi-nude Eastern European ladies will stick with that blog. Even if some are interested in what I have to say, I’m pretty sure they will not look around. If I were making money off this little hobby, it wouldn’t matter of course, but I’m not.
On one hand, I’m watching it all with amusement, but on the other hand, when I follow a blogger, WordPress sends her a note about my blog with my top 3 posts, and they are all about Femen. I’m afraid prospective readers are bound to be disappointed.
