Blogger or Tumblr?

For some reason, Tumblr seems to be doing a lot better than Blogger and the networking over there is a lot better. I'm back and forth on which style of blogging I prefer... this seems like a more direct and full-means for doing what I want to do, but Tumblr's got a very fun direction and it's a lot easier to interact with the community over there.

I've been wondering what I can do to get more hits, and while the past two months, especially May, were very successful (May gave us our record for monthly views), I'm not sure how else to go about it. I almost feel cheated by Google in the fact that, I really don't know that anyone is seeing my blog on Blogger or through Google Search engines, it feels like any hits I get, it's directly because of me spamming links on Twitter and various other places, and having my site feed discovered through Twitter links and getting hits from being posted on a larger site.

I had a goal to set up my site and I wanted it to be through Blogger because it made the most sense and I wasn't going to be paying a ton for unnecessary features. But through a very limited advertisement of what Google offered when purchasing the domain, I'm left with no options of expanding Don't Laugh, People when I should have no problems with that.

So I'm stuck wondering if I should just move over to Tumblr for now to do my blogging as it's a more network-friendly site... if I should just create a Tumblr and post links to here from there, or if I should find a way to pick up my domain and carry it elsewhere, paying tonnes for unnecessary features.

Perhaps my commitment to Blogger and what I started is blinding me... maybe I've got to put on shades and just carry on...

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

[9/29]Track of the Day

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
