It’s got me perplexed
as to what attracts eyeballs,
a conundrum vexed
as the internet is trawled
What could make them click
on to MY blog, for goodness sake?
What can be the trick?
Give me a hint, give me a break
I sweat over words,
scan the net for graphics
Never a cross word
but neither attract traffic
So, why, what’s the knack
to get hordes to visit my blog,
to read once and come back
to be as loyal as a dog?
I’ve read others’ blogs
can’t see what’s the attraction,
what turns their cogs
How do they get so much traction?
The whimsy, the soap opera stuff
I can’t compete with that
Such slop, there’s surely enough
I offer quality, not idle chitchat
So, tell your friends to come and see
my daily blog which just happens to be
The soundest, bestest ever read,
just click and do me a good deed.
