    I’ve figured out blogging

    I’ve figured out blogging

    Write a two sentence post asking readers to “brief” me on whether Anthony Weiner has been “exposed,” with a video making a play on “weiner” and “boehner,” and I generate enthusiasm and comments.

    Write a multi-paragraph post about important issues of academic freedom and race politics in law school, and I generate nothing.

    And it only took me 2 1/2 years to figure it out.

    Stacy McCain's 'How To Get A Million Hits On Your Blog explains the whole strategy.

    The key is to post the tabloidy stuff in the hope that some percentage of the people who read it will stay around and read the other things you post. I've made a lot of new Friends In The Ether that way.
