I have been slack on the gypsy front for the last few weeks and I apologise. In fact I have been busy with all sorts of other malarkey, including the preparation for the Plymouth the Dakar rally with the boys at Rally ACE.
What brought me back to this cathartic little device (after all, no matter how many viewers one has it is a conversation with oneself), is my falling upon the wonderful musings of Tim Ireland.
Tim has made a few politically oriented blogs that have really caught the imagination of the public, but as soon as I came across them ‘SEO’ cried out. For one there is the quite blatant link to ‘Search Engine Optimisation‘ at the top of the front page of Bloggerheads as well as well placed references to ‘Boobs’, and anything that might capture the attention of masses of search engine traffic.
It is a self publicising anti government rant that rattles its saber, but seems to be about the promotion of Mr. Tim above any high ideal.
OR is Tim just living in the real world. Do we have to combine a savvy street wise knowledge of the markets maintaining our innocent desire to do good.
Is he using his marketing powers like one of the X men? ‘Marketing Man uses eloquence to destroy evil’.
It makes me wonder about the power of Blogging when to get noticed now you have to ride on the back of the spectacularly stupid, ridiculous or any old bandwagon to get noticed. If Tim is managing a balancing act between the absurd and his integrity then perhaps I have learned something today.
Right! Iâ€™m in the market for a bandwagon.
In fact I am going to get hold of Tim Ireland and ask him for one. He seems to be good at them, so I am starting a get me on the bandwagon campaign.
Tits. And arse.
