Sometimes It's About Throwing Spaghetti on the Wall


Honestly, I have no clue where June went, or the first half of 2010 for that matter. But that's not the purpose of this post.

I've been trying to spend more time on my blog and writing gigs to pay down debt and continue making a name for myself and sadly, I've been neglecting this blog. I've done some pretty cool things in the past month: groovy trips, cooked some tasty food and overall, just enjoying life.

I have to chuckle today because there are some things I write about because I'm passionate about it while there are other things I write about because I know I can make a quick buck. Last week my article "Five Things Frequent Travelers Almost Never Have to Buy" was published. In a week's time, it's received more than 4,000 page views! Meanwhile, other articles I put my heart, soul and time into are barely pushing double digits.

The article's published on Associated Content which was recently purchased by Yahoo! Did the big Y publish it on their site? Is it just a highly searched topic? My Google alerts haven't picked up anything, of course, if it's elsewhere, doesn't mean my name still needs to be associated with it.

Sometimes, I'm just throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks and that article is popular for some reason. Will be fun to see how much this silly little article makes me.

Be sure to check out SoloTravelGirl.com to catch up on my latest adventures including my trip to New York.

That's great that the quick write-up has had that many views. I love the speghetti-on-the-wall imagery. Have a great day, Val

I think I saw that article on the front page of AC--so everyone logging into the site had to see it for two days.

Matthew - Really? I'm impressed AC has that many visits to the homepage, guess I underestimated them

Val & Mistyeyed - Thanks! Every little bit helps toward the travel fund :)
