I can write what is, all humility aside, the most effing brilliant post about federalism or free speech principles or some arcane point of law that has ever been blogged. It will take me hours of research and writing and thought.
But the traffic and links for that post will never, ever approach what we get for one of my "LOL my kids is funny" posts that took me five minutes of whimsy.
And that, in turn, will never get the traffic that we get every.single.freaking.day. from image search engines just because I labeled a picture of Dora the Explorer as Dora the Explorer in a throwaway post. [God, I hope those searchers are all little kids. Really I do.]
So I've decided that the blog is changing. It's going to be called "My kid kicked me in the nads today", and it's going to be all cloyingly funny kid stories all the time, mostly culled from other people's posts on Facebook. And every post will have a labeled image of a kid's TV character. And of a naked eunuch, that being another preposterously popular image search.
So I'm saying the whole ambiance might change a bit.
I'm expecting my co-bloggers to change with me. Patrick will be expected only to write brilliant and incisive blog posts about deranged litigation and out-of-control public servants to the extent the impact five-year-olds saying clever things. Ezra will be expected only to write about how the imperialist state subjugates the working man to the extent the working man's toddler shat in a Prada handbag or something. David will be expected only to write the worth-waiting-for artistic evaluations of Hummel figurines. Charles may only blog about consumer culture as it pertains to scrapbooking. And the rest may only continue to not blog about approved subjects.
