For those who know me and spent any time at all around here know that I have been persona non grata lately (I know that is supposed to mean an unwelcome person, but I’m using it as a no longer relevant, absent person, ok?). For various reasons I throttled down recently and took my foot off the gas to pull over to the side of the road. From this vantage point I can still see everybody speeding by; however, because I am no longer in the flow of traffic most don’t have time to even wave. Need to keep your eyes on the road, right?
I’m ok with that though and even if there were some initial anxious moments as I was pulling over, this is a good place for me right now. Instead of my brain being oatmeal, it’s probably more the consistency of scrambled eggs at present. And that’s an improvement, so it’s definitely a good thing.
In my world, January 1 is always one of my biggest days of the year because that is when a lot of commercial insurance policies renew and also when a lot of our new opportunities come to fruition. December had somewhat of a shaky start for me, but not only did I recover nicely I started the year with a nice little bang. In baseball terminology it wasn’t a home run, but more like a stand-up double which is still pretty impressive.
Yay Billy, right? Right?
What did that do to your traffic?
Oh, it’s definitely down, but in number of site visits weekly actually not that much; which was surprising to me. Therefore, I decided to do a little digging to see what is still driving traffic.
Certain keywords must actually work? Imagine that………
No kidding, huh? And being a dude, what I discovered was no surprise to me, my previous post Your Butt Smell like Fingers is still number one or two for weekly visits here on a consistent basis. Do you think it’s the word butt or the picture of Hayden Panettiere digging for gold? Imagine that too………
So I guess what I’m saying is, regardless of how present I might or might not be, I can always count on Hayden’s butt to keep me relevant, right? Imagine that three…….
Whether you’re a brother
or whether you’re a mother
you’re stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Feel the city breakin
and everybody shakin’
and were stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin’ alive……..
Two points if you can guess that song; minus four if it gets stuck in your head today. Yikes…….make it stop…….
What is that smell?
There will be a new and improved……ok, maybe just a different version of me this year, but I’m having fun taking care of my bidness in my day job right now so I’m in no hurry to make any proclamations of exactly what the new me will look, sound and/or smell like.
One thing you can count on however, I will still have great hair…..seriously…..
And that’s the truth.
