Let me give this post a bit of drama. I hate being predictable. It is a trait I least covet. Predictable is boring. It offers no excitement. So before any of my few readers, that includes my mom, would start calling me a bore and start striking their names out of my readers' list, I would like to treat them with my brand of the unexpected.
To do that, I need to get you on board. Here is what I need you to do. Look at the title of the post. You would notice that it got nothing to do with what I am blabbering about so far. You see, I purposely left out the content. That is the entire crux of the scheme.
Here is the deal. I want you to make a guess as to the gist of that content. Give me your best guess by way of comment to this post. Be as specific as much as you could with your answer. I would choose three from among those that made the correct guesses and offer their blogs one month of free advertisement on my blog. The winners will be announced on the third of November.
This is so easy so I am giving you no clue. Okey! just this one. It has got nothing to do with Lady Gaga calling herself one lucky bitch.
Now go play along and let us have fun.
By the way, in case you did not know. Men too can be bitch.

“What topic would I write about?” must be a question that many bloggers who have just entered the burgeoning blogging field, like myself, often have to ask themselves each time their blog calls for updating. For me, I always refer to the objectives I have set forth for my blog to get the answer. I have to make sure everything I write about must help translate results for what I want to accomplish with my blog.
Much as I am tempted to write about my steamy sexual escapades as I am sure it would earn for my blog hundreds of hits, I won’t. Hey! Sex sells. Why else would plenty of bloggers post pictures of almost naked women on their blogs that got nothing to do with their contents at all? I am no prude but if a scantily clad woman's photo is used in a post simply to attract male readers' attention, in my book that is exploitation. You might take a different view but that's my personal take on the matter.
Anyway, forget about that steamy escapade part, I was just kidding. I am not even going to write about my adorable kid no matter how wholesome that maybe. It is not because my wife has sternly warned me not mention anything about our private lives on the net which I would definitely not do anyway but such subject has got nothing to do with my blog’s purposes.
From one noob to another, and to anyone who wants to listen, I strongly advise that you consider finding yourself a niche in the world of blogging. I could not think of a more effective way of distinguishing yourself and cultivating readership than to concentrate on a specific topic or interest.
Now, if you have decided on a topic based on what your blog intends to achieve, remember to write it in way that it comes out sexy. Trim it of excesses that don't fit into your blog. That is not all. Your sexy content would not get attention unless it could jostle its way of up of the heap of millions of other contents seeking to be discovered. Give your content a hot title. That should enable it it to kick its way out to the top.Titles could often make or break contents. It is the title which likely readers who would find your entries through a search engine that would help them make up their mind whether to pay your page a visit or consider such visit a waste of their time.
Okey! Let me try and give this post a title so alluring, you could not resist reading it if only to prove that the idea of of a hot title really works. It should if you have read this far.
