WordPress has a neat feature that graphs the hits on your site, the google terms that bring up links, and other stuff (cool platform, all in all). And here’s something interesting: my poems, my intellectual-ish posts and my pictures get some traffic yes, but it took a while for them to build up 3-5 hits.
Yesterday , I posted a bizarre Christian website that advocates very unorthodox sexual behavior (for Christians, mind you) like anal sex and fisting. It has 19 hits so far. It seems that holy fucking is the hot topic.
Look at this chart:
And then this one, from one of my more serious posts:
Gives a whole new meaning to Jesus fuckin’ Christ, doesn’t it?
ETA: This one has 26 hits in just one day. Sheesh, I might as well start a porn site.
I shall quote his introductory post in part in order to give a (very) general idea of the blog:
Very seriously, my first and main aim at all times with this blog is to encourage others to do it, to blog on the Hub, and to do it better than me. I’m constantly looking for ways to improve the presentation and usability; I’ve already heavily modified how blogs are presented in what is the new default skin (style) of the Hub, Sosumi_3, and I’m always thinking what I could do better, and looking for more new features to build in for our Hub members.
I stress that this blog is also meant to reach out to everyone else too; which is one reason why it is on the Hub and not on the Hangout. Hopefully, it will help spark mutually productive conversations between atheists and theists and everyone else inbetween. And of course, even better would be this blog if it encourages others, whether atheist or religious, to blog on the Hub too!
Then I also do have a tendency to every now and then at rare intervals actually post about myself or better still and more likely my garden at length and with pictures, and that kind of subject matter is better suited to a blog than to a normal thread on the board, which is what I did before when talking on such matters.
Now, then, the topics the blog covers more topics than this snips let on, there’s loads of interesting material which is, I think, his way of encouraging blogging; there’s bound to be something that interests someone else enough to blog about it. So, have a look-see and blog on the Hub or on your own blog, or just hang around and read.
One more thing, The Heathen Hub, the forum in which the blog is located, is also an interesting place to peruse, so I’ll link it
By the way, yes this is somewhat shameless promotion, since I and others are trying to get more traffic to the forums. I won’t lie to you, but do check it out, there’s great reading material (we are trying to revive it for a reason, you know).
Edited to add: There are links to his blog and the Hub to the right and down.
Here’s a sample:
Anal Sex in Accordance with God’s Will
Are you saving yourself for your wedding night? The Devil wants you to fail, that’s why he puts stumbling blocks in your way. But God wants you to succeed, and that’s why he has given us an alternative to intercourse before marriage: anal sex. Through anal sex, you can satisfy your body’s needs, while you avoid the risk of unwanted pregnancy and still keep yourself pure for marriage.
You may be shocked at first by this idea. Isn’t anal sex (sodomy) forbidden by the Bible? Isn’t anal sex dirty? What’s the difference between having anal sex before marriage and having regular intercourse? Let’s address these issues by debunking some myths about anal sex and God’s will.
