    the crazy thing about the ads over there 

    is even though my hits have gone down since i started doing my thing at the LAist, the ads havent really slowed down. and if anything now im feeling guilty that im charging what im charging for those ads.

    which makes me want to write more over here because there is a theory that the more you post, the more your hits go up.

    which would allow my sponsors a better value for their dollar.

    its weird that i care about them. i always thought getting ads would make me feel obliged to mention them or not to talk shit about them, or edit what i talk about, but theyve pretty much stayed over there and ive pretty much stayed over here.

    but i am grateful for them sponsoring this blog and i feel they deserve better than the amount of traffic that theyve gotten here.

    maybe they dont care. maybe its not the people who arent here that theyre worried about, maybe its you, those who are here, the base of the busblog who theyre interested in.

    and maybe thats who i should be interested in pleasing.

    not the hit counter, not the corporations, not the girls on myspace who say nice things in my inbox.

    but whatever i’ll start updating twice a day anyways. cuz i should.

    the bears lost yesterday on purpose. in order to fulfil the super bowl shuffle path to glory. you must lose to the fish, no matter how bad they suck. then ye shall win it all.
