According to my stats, I got over 600 page hits yesterday. Granted, a lot of that is from image searches, but I know that more than 16 people read my blog, yet somehow I've only got 16 followers. What in the hell is that all about?
To those of you who publicly follow my blog, thank you for your support. Silverfiddle over at Western Hero always has my latest and greatest updated on one of his sidebar things, and that makes me fairly happy. Be that as it may, with as many hits as I get per day, one would expect that I'd have a larger following.
Sadly, I don't. Fortunately for all of you, the web browser here at work sucks major ass, so it won't let me see who my actual followers are. When I get home tonight, however, I will add a list here personally thanking each and every one of my faithful people.
As for the rest of you, what gives? The best explanation that I can come up with is the fact that many of my readers are generally conservative. Now, with the exception of people like Harrison over at Capitol Commentary, many conservatives who call themselves Republicans are also very spiritual Christians. So my question to you is: Are you afraid to publicly follow my blog because of the name?
Or am I being punished because I'm not part of the almighty, world-wide orgy that is Facebook? I've given it a lot of thought lately. Larry over at Political Realities, a wonderful piece of internet space to which I contribute occasionally, is on Facebook, and he's got a bunch of followers. I know that if I started a Facebook for Jack Camwell, I'd probably get a lot more exposure. But fuck that.
I suppose it could also be that although some people enjoy my content, they don't want to be seen supporting some of the horrifyingly foul language, innuendos, and references that I produce. I suppose CFGM can be fairly lewd. I mean, I do post pictures of rather scantily clad women on holidays, even religious holidays (nothing says "Celebrate the birth of Jesus" like a nice pair of tits). And of course, I freely say words like "tits."
Anyway, most of that is just me being silly. It doesn't bother me one way or the other who decides to follow my blog publicly, and I just like poking fun at people. All I care about is that people are, in fact, reading and that my message is getting out there.
But I will admit this: I want this blog to go places, and it can't go places without people supporting it. So if you're not afraid, follow this awful patch of internet space. If you are afraid, just tell me so! If you simply think I'm full of shit and you'd rather that my message not spread, then don't be scared to tell me that either.
Lastly, I'm going to get back into the habbit of posting pictures with funny captions. I've been super lazy these days, and although my page hits have gone up even with my lack of activity, I think I owe it to those who have remained faithful.
So here's a little something to offend everyone!
