Many people somehow think that my life is really interesting, that I go through a lot of very fun things and adventures for the nature of what I do for a living.
The truth is... yes... there are a lot of things that happen to me and it's a rather fun life.. but the sad part is... much of it are things that I can't blog about.
So there are times like tonight when I actually run out of things to write...
It sucks to be a guy blogger doesn't it?
I mean... it really REALLY sucks...
Well if I were a girl blogger... and I run out of things to do.
All I would have to do is whip out my camera....
and snap pictures of myself
over and over again.
And just post them up.again
and again."PICTURES ALL STOLEN FROM SUET LI'S BLOG WITHOUT HER PERMISSION BWAHAHAHA"
And my readers would LOVE it ... why?
Because I'm all hot and sexy and they love it when I camwhore... almost as much as they love it when I spend time to write my intelligent entries.
It reminds me of the time Kenny Sia pimped me.
It's almost every blogger's wet dream to be pimped by Kenny Sia... I mean why not... the minute Kenny touches you on his blog, your traffic will shoot up by the thousands in a day.
One day, Nicole messaged me on MSN
"Your traffic must be through the roof right now".
"Huh? REALLY? Why?"
She couldn't wait to break the truth to me.
"Kenny pimped you."
So excited like a little Japanese school girl I called up my blog stats and looked at the referrals I had. I was imagining my stats to show a chart that spiked up like that.
I was so excited!!!
I mean there I was about to see for the first time ever... my traffic go through the roof.
Once I pulled up the stats, I took a good look and I couldn't believe my eyes.
So I put on my glasses and peered really really close to the screen.. wondering if I got the number right.And the number WAS right.
Of the tens of thousands of people that read Kenny's blog each day... do you know how many of them clicked on my link there to visit my blog?
Yes... eleven. Not Eleven hundred... not Eleven Thousand... not Eleven hundred thousand.
I couldn't believe it!!! Why? What was it about my name that nobody wanted to click on?
Until someone brought this up.
"Tim... in Kenny's blog you're listed along with Nicole, Pink Pau and IcyQueenGoddess... with 3 other girls... do you think ANYBODY WILL CLICK ON TIMOTHY?!."And it made sense.
So the next thing I know, word got around and Kenny heard about this joke so being the guy with a sense of humour, the next time Kenny posted me on his blog he had the caption with a picture of us saying
"Me and sexyshortskirt", linking my blog to sexyshortskirt.
You know maybe if some guys think that sexyshortskirt is a nick used by a female blogger they might click on it right?
Well... IT WORKED!!!
IT REALLY REALLY WORKED!!!
The number of referrals from Kenny's blog had a more than 50% increase from the day before... from 11 to.....
*drum roll please*
It does suck to be a guy blogger doesn't it? (Unless of course you have a great sense of humour like Kenny)
Anyone else feel my pain?
PS: Kenny...I never really got to thanking you for pimping me twice a few months back... so thank you Kenny. There... I pimp you back now... (Ishh.... not like you'll feel it).
