On Blogging

I just found a great quote from Xiaxue:

"I want to be one of the first few people in the world who are able to answer "I am a Blogger!," when asked what my occupation is."

Although I use blogging in my professional life (with Beautify CNMI and Marianas RC&D)I am several thousand visitors per day away from being able to support myself through my personal blog (i.e. the one you are reading right now).

I've discovered that linking to videos of dying dictators and pictures of disgraced beautify queens is a great way to generate traffic, but that stuff only takes you so far. It also doesn't create a lot of repeat visitors.

If someone wants to have a succesful blog (and support themselves with endorsements or ads showing on the blogs) then they have to create a blog that makes people want to visit every single day...if not more often.

I have two ideas to do this:

1. I love politics. I'm going to make it a point to write about the CNMI's unique political, um, shall we say, atmosphere. The mid-term elections are coming up this year. Here on Saipan that means that 16 seats will be up for grabs in the House of Representatives. That means that there will be 16 Democrats, 16 Republicans, 16 Covenants, and a bunch of Independants running for those seats...and the money and prestige that goes along with it...and that's just the House! There will also be a slew of other races! I'm not interested at all in getting involved in the politics, but I have a couple of creative ideas for reporting on what goes on over the next several months.

I hope that my wit is as sharp as I think it is.

2. I'll just post more pictures of the Fotten Gaga models:

Fotten Gaga ModelsTwo more girls and they have themselves a calendar!

P.S. If you want to see more pictures of the Fotten Gaga models, leave a comment asking for one. I'll post one picture everytime I get a comment asking for more pictures.
