IV. Major Links*

*After last month’s traffic whoring report, we received the following letter from a concerned reader:

Do you ever worry that your traffic whoring reports make your readers feel a bit used and less cherished? Your last post made me feel a bit like the transitional boyfriend/girlfriend who will be dumped when the next best person or venue comes along.

To which we would like to respond: Aww, that’s so sweet! Please don’t feel less cherished, concerned reader, but instead take a stroll through this site — I-am-a-stupidfuckingidiot.com — which sent us literally thousands of visitors, and you will perhaps understand why we are so proud to call ourselves traffic whores. Or just scan through the comments here.

V. Forecast

Because of ongoing projects, posting and traffic whoring will be maintained at low to declining levels into September, but will pick up in the fall, in time for the one-year anniversary of the site.
