Sex And Pain

There are 2 axioms I have learned through life and blogging.
1. Sex sells
2. Pain brings in viewers

I’m a numbers guy, which is shocking to me. When writing research papers in grad school, I was far more confident writing qualitative papers (analysis) then quantitative (numbers based). Knowing how my blog is performing, viewership wise, is something that has always interested me.

I have 2 blogs, this one and a much more public one.
Here’s what I’ve learned.
• Posts that have sex as an obvious topic are read, a lot. If there’s even a hint of sexuality within the first two lines, I’m getting triple digit views.

• Posts that show extreme pain early on gets triple digit views.

• Grouchy posts are well received.

• Positive posts are not read.

• posts reporting incredible progress are not read.

I’ll bet you any amount of money that if I put a picture of a lingerie model on this post I’d get the most views ever. Should I put a picture of religious significance, very few looks.

Why does this matter?
It doesn’t matter at all. I found it interesting.
