In a chance Twitter conversation with Clay Burell today, he happened to remark that his blog was still getting traffic based on a discussion of Lolita, originally posted April 10, 2008. When I joked about pumping up my stats by finally reading and discussing the book, he mentioned a "Teachers as Blogging Vampires" post that also draws people doing a keyword search of "vampires."
Obviously, if I included both words, I might attract (trick?) more people to Journeys.
Now that you're here :-) I feel obligated to provide value. I refer you to two prior postings:
- A Question of Censorship wherein librarians are shown to be defenders of free speech
- Unsuited to Age to Age Group a discussion of And Tango Makes Three, the most challenged book of 2006 because of a storyline centered on a homosexual penguin couple
Thanks for the inspiration, Clay!
