OK. This post isn’t really a top 10 list. Nor is it about underwear.
One of the blogs I follow, The Laughing Housewife, recently posted about how important a blog title is to attract readers.
How did I do?
P.S. If you really must know why…..it’s because your mother told you so.
I thought I left a comment when I first read this, but I must have become so preoccupied with the vital question of why one should wear clean underwear that I absentmindedly walked away without saying anything.
Or else I just had nothing to say. Which doesn’t ever stop me.
My philosophy is “If you don’t have anything nice to say, say it anyway….it always counts as a comment in the site stats!”
Great post and here’s me thinking we would find out if you are a jockey or a boxer? Not signing my name.
I never been in a horse race or a boxing match…..does that help? And I know who you are.
Yes, excellent post title! I can straight here, wondering what the other 9 reasons could be – like Pseu, I’ve always been told that clean underwear is always essential just in case you are involved in an accident (in particular being run over by a bus for some reason!). 🙂
I guarantee you if I was run over by a bus, I would not have clean underwear!
I always struggle with titles. I admit Al, I was hesitant to click on it in my google reader. I saw it yesterday and thought, maybe that should wait for a Friday…LOL
I always try to come up with catchy titles….problem is they’re always far better than the articles themselves. Now, if only I can switch that around somehow…..
yes, I read that one too..IMPACT—ATTRACTS…..I reckon your underwear filled that description..but couldn’t we have a photo( more impact than bear)
Happy New Year Al. xxxxxxxx
I don’t think the world is ready for that, Patrecia. Besides, they’re all in the wash right now.
Happy New Year to you too.
well just one peek!
It’s a legacy we need to pass on, Al. Can’t have our descendants caught unawares.
I understand about legacy, Patti. Six hundred thousand years ago, when Gronk’s mother, Bleg, first uttered the words “be sure you have on clean underwear when you go Mastadon hunting today. You might get injured”, a tradition was started that all mothers have adhered to until this day.
Are you reading a book on marketing, Al? What are you really up to? 😉
I’m angling to become your literary agent, Lorna. When do we start? (My fee is normally 20% but for a friend, 15)
You already have the job, Al! But, being such smart guy, you do know that 15% of nothing is still nothing, right?
So get cracking. I’m releasing the book on 1/13/13. What’s your marketing strategy–and don’t count on Scrappy helping with the sympathy buy. He’s on strike!
Au contraire, Lorna. The first part of my plan is to make sure Scrappy is front and center on the book sleeve. I remember from my college marketing classes that the vast majority of biography readers are also dog lovers. Don’t worry about the strike, I’ll send Bella to chat him up and get him out of that mood he’s in! Us old guys are pushovers for those young babes.
Everyone knows that it is in case you are involved in an accident and taken to hospital: you wouldn’t want the docs and nurses to see dirty underwear, now would you?
OMG! You’re my sister! There’s no question we had the same mother.
Maybe I should write a post entitled ‘Read me: I Have Great Influence In The Blogosphere’ 🙂
Even a bad influence is better than no influence at all!
