Taboo Subjects and Blogging

By on December 4th, 2010 in Advertising, Content, Humor, Writing

I found an old post I had done last year (when I was in a particularly silly mood), called Men’s Health, which never really caused as much of a commotion as I had hoped, so I had forgotten about it.

Tip of the Week

As most of my Twitter followers know, I actually put 2 original posts up a day, during the week, one which is brand new content and typically posted fairly early in the morning. Around lunch time I make another post which is an OBG (Oldie But Goodie) post, where I attempt to get more readership and site walk-thru by Tweeting older content (given I have over 1000 posts, it is not hard to find 7 posts a week for this). Sometimes I attempt to mine really old posts, and have to clean them up a great deal (edit out parts, add viable tags, etc.,), and this helps clean up my site in general, so it is a very worthwhile exercise, in my opinion.

The Man Who Broke the Most Taboos: the Late George Carlin

This week I went searching for Christmas related old(er) posts and tripped across my Men’s Health post again, and decided it would be an excellent candidate for Re-Tweeting, since I loved the humor in it, and I enjoy reading some of my sillier posts, so it was Tweet’ed on Monday.

As part of this content resurrection program, I ask for some of my blog helpers to retweet the content and such, however, most of them have left this post alone, and did not reTweet it, due to my copious use of Double Entendres, and the topic itself being about Erectile Dysfunction.

I had one friend post it to StumbleUpon, however they then said if they got banned for posting Adult content, I was in deep trouble! Digg did not seem to take the initial post either (although I note now it does have a Digg vote). None of my associates Dugg or did anything else to the post, so there it sits, un-Pushed, even though I think it is a fun post.

I guess the moral of the story is you can get a little too controversial, even when you think you are just being silly!
