Oh Hai Evree1! If you are wondering about why I haven’t been writing to you every day detailing my countless trips to assorted coffee shops and late night cycling adventures it’s because I’m actually living in Vienna for 2 months (here’s pics!) and instead have been wandering the streets of Austria looking for Kangaroos, Crocodiles and Paul Hogan, sadly to no avail. I’ve also been blogging there about who they reserve train seats for and their cool local holidays. However I guess there is some kind of tussle going on back in LA and I’ve spent the last 3 minutes and 24 seconds trying to see what the hubub is about. I was hoping to provide a detailed analysis of the situation but instead I got bored and went out for a vegan strudel.
While I was out, I was thinking about ways we could reduce the traffic here at blogging.la because frankly it’s really the last thing I ever want to think about and if we could work together and get our daily pageviews down to zero that would be a good way for us to never have to think about it again, and that would be awesome. I really believe in the team here and know if we put our minds to it there’s nothing we can’t do. So, that said, I’ve made a list of a few things we can do to help bring those numbers down to a more manageable level. It’s just the first 15 that came to my mind while trying to figure out how to pronounce a street name that was a string of 28 consonants with a few umlauts thrown in there for good measure.
1 If we wrote fewer posts about biking in LA
2 If we wrote fewer posts about yummy food in LA
3 If we wrote fewer posts about LA history
4 If we wrote fewer posts about art in LA
5 If we wrote fewer posts about something we saw in LA
6 If we wrote fewer posts about people in LA who park like idiots
7 If we wrote fewer posts about what what flavors Scoops is serving today
8 If we wrote fewer posts about the Arclight
9 If we wrote fewer posts about cool things going on in LA
10 If we wrote fewer posts about bands playing in LA
11 If we wrote fewer posts about the LAUSD
12 If we wrote fewer posts about street closings in LA
13 If we wrote fewer posts about crafts in LA
14 If we wrote fewer posts about the Eastside of LA
15 If we wrote more posts about lemonade consumption.
Basically any single thing we’ve ever written that someone came here for, if we wrote less of it, they’d come here less, and that would lower our traffic which would rock. What do you all think? Can we pull this off? Any suggestions on more ways we can get people to stop coming to our site would be greatly appreciated.
