Darren Criss

I generally try to write about things that are of interest to me (although I'm not above pandering as my post Daddy Candy clearly shows). Sometimes the things I write about only resonate with me or a few others, but occasionally either my timing or point of view strikes a nerve with readers and results in a lot of attention.

Last November I posted an entry, Every (gay) teenagers dream: Darren Criss. The posting simply states that Criss is a character on the popular television show, Glee. I share some facts about Darren that I pulled from IMDB and posted a link to an earlier post I wrote called Serenading Kurt: Teenage Dream.

In my mind, its a fairly innocuous posting but every week it remains one of my most visited, and I've finally figured out why. If you google "Darren Criss" my little post appears near the bottom of the first page. Now how'd that happen? I'd love to have that pull with some other issues and posts. Any bloggers have any pearls of wisdom to share for this novice?

I think we are all amazed when that happens... Post Titles have alot to do with it I think... or rather the use of keywords in your title that are of interest to many...

Have fun and keep on blogging my friend...

I have had the same thing happen to me on my blog. I made a comment about something that isn't really a focus of my blog at all and it gets significant hits each day. In my case, I think it has to do with a picture on that blog post. People often search for images and this just happens to be one that a lot of people search for. It's "Lonliness" sadly enough. I suspect your Darren Criss post being popular is due to an image as well.

I have another post that is popular due to its specific title and I giggle that so many people search for a variation of those words when they are so narrow and specific. In this case some combination of "Mormon", "masturbation", or "porn"! Go figure..
