A Sure Way to Boost Blog Traffic

Not long ago I was reading an edition of a magazine called "Artful Blogging". It's all about online journals and virtual galleries of different artists, and it really is just like a big jar of eye candy in magazine form. Among other things, it gives all kinds of helpful hints of how to get your blog going and ways to increase blog traffic. One of these ideas was to give things away on your blog.


Now, I have noticed on several my favorite blogs of "famous" people, they do give a lot of stuff away. They'll come up with something wonderful and tempting, and give it to one of the commenters. You know, like, "Today I'm going to give away this beautiful digital scrapbooking kit to Commenter #47. Then hundreds of readers scurry to leave their comments in order to win this wonderful prize.

Not wanting to fall behind in current blogging trends, I, also have decided to give something away. This is a valued item from my own home, and boy, is it a treasure. I know you'll be leaping to your mouse to get this item, which I will show you now:


Yes, that's right. It's a wallpaper-enshrouded light switch cover. This is no ordinary light switch cover, folks. This is a one of a kind piece of artistry, an prized exhibit from the now sadly-defunct "Wallpaper Museum".

This fine item will go to Commenter number...let's see...how about #4.

Good luck, and may the best commenter win.

Oh, come on now, honey....oops, I just made myself #2! (Actually, this might be a good way to _deter_ comments...)

And I was at the coast without my laptop and the Port A internet cafe was closed, so I couldn't win. Boo!

I was just looking through last week's Wall St Journals, and there was an article about the government making it more difficult to have these give aways. You better hurry and get that wall papering done!
