I Hate Nutella, Sex, and Neil deGrasse Tyson

I’ve been writing for P-Mag for a while now, and I’ve noticed a subtle change in the way I think about headlines. I wrote about what I cared about for a long time, and that was my only consideration. That was before I started seeing the weekly readership statistics. P-Mag has run a lot of amazing articles on a range of subjects, but every week, like clockwork, the posts about sex are at the top. It makes me get a little competitive, and maybe a little desperate. Sometimes I am extremely tempted to write articles specifically on topics that will draw a lot of readers. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. To date, the editors of P-Mag have not been receptive to these, but I expect I’ll wear them down eventually.

At least one of these should beat a sex post, right?

We don’t actually run that many ads. Right now, there’s only the Amazon square. Our blogads are always for books, I never mind those. We’re kind of a hard sell to most ad places, what with the swearing and being hard to classify, and I won’t run anything annoying. Consider turning your adblocker off for sites you really like, or those that don’t run obnoxious ads? It helps us keep the content coming. : )

We were contacted this evening by someone at blogads with a new ad thingy for books that actually sounds really cool; they put the entire first chapter in the widget. That’s advertising I can get behind.
