Self fulfilling prophecy
I'm not interested in maximizing blog traffic - it's not like I have advertising where increased traffic is momentarily advantageous. I want people to come to my blog because they care about what I have to say (or, perhaps, out of the morbid curiosity of a married gay mormon man). Truth is, while I've been getting a lot of traffic the last few days, the vast majority of them aren't hanging around. And I hate to think of them hastily closing their browser window out of disgust over the whole gay thing.
So, how do I talk about what's on my mind without driving superfluous traffic to my blog? I'm not using actual names in this post - but that gets awkward and tiresome very quickly. Maybe I should adopt a nickname, I'll call him "Bob"
Yes, I think Bob is very cute - "gorgeous", "stunning", "beautiful", "pulchritudinous" are words that come to mind - OK, not "pulchritudinous", I just looked that up in the dictionary. It means "physically beautiful; comely", which certainly describes Bob.
But, more than that, I'm attracted to Bob's personality. He may be a complete jerk in person, I don't know. But, on screen, he comes across as this quiet, humble, sweet person - until he sings, then he loses himself in his music. Cockiness is a real turn-off for me - which is why you don't see me blogging much about the runner-up of said popular singing contest. I guess I just have a weakness for the cute nerdy type. If I were a teenage girl (or a teenage boy who likes boys) then Bob's picture would most definitely be hanging in my locker.
In the mean time, I'll just continue my celebrity man-crush and bask in the glow of Bob's beauty. I don't mean to come across as a creepy old man - I may be older, but I'm not dead. I'm a connoisseur of the male physique; and, Bob is like a fine wine that needs to be savored.
