So I'd never even heard of Gawker magazine until I read this article by the apparently famous-among-voyeurs Emily Gould.

The gist is: gossipy homegirl becomes famous blogosphere demoness; romances swing with the mood, and the result is confusion, trauma, and regret. Front page, NYTimes Magazine.

The article is intimate, insightful, a bit fluffy, and disturbingly attractive; I can't remember the last time I sat and read ten pages of text on the web.

I then of course had to visit Gawker, google Emily, and wind my way through years of snipey backstory and cynical comments from the blog-consuming masses I pray never descend upon this quiet corner of the Internet.

All in all, this article raises interesting points about blogging and privacy, yada yada yada, and is worth an eye, but probably not all the eye I just gave it.

hi all owner discovered your website via search engine but it was hard to find and I see you could have more visitors because there are not so many comments yet. I have discovered website which offer to dramatically increase traffic to your website they claim they managed to get close to 4000 visitors/day using their services you could also get lot more targeted traffic from search engines as you have now. I used their services and got significantly more visitors to my blog. Hope this helps :) They offer best services to increase website traffic Take care. Jeremy
