Last week, The Retropolitan had a post about his target audience. Where I think I made honorable mention (tee hee! *shreeeeek!*). And it got me thinking about this blog thing and what, if any, target audience I cater to.
I would imagine my target audience would be people a) with a genetic code
or two in common with me and there by obligated to read b) with a new baby
c) with children
d) hoping to see some boobies
e) with a poop fetish
or f) who like to feel superior
so they read about my fumblings about it parent-dome.
This, however, is a shockingly bad representation of my ACTUAL audience. Play along, for a minute, while I put you all into little piles.
- I have a disproportionate number of male, republican readers. Most of you, (Andy, David, Chris, Corky*, The Retropolitan?) however, could be lumped into the boobie-or-poop categories (Andy, you know where I put YOU, now don't you?).
- There's ASYB'er, Nicole and Molly. You all are obligated to read this and say nice things like, "Gee, your shoes are pretty" or "Everyone has forgotten their kids at the store once or twice. It's TOTALLY a right of passage for mothers" because we love each other.
- There are a few teachers who come by here (Abigail, Pigs). I used to be, like, the president of the PTA and shit and so I can see why this might be an interesting place to come read. I'm quite sure I have ASYB'er to thank for your patronage, but since your are both expecting, welcome. I hope you will stick around.
- Heather, who is totally hot and the only nanny I'd ever even consider hiring.
- There's Chris, the not-so-Rude Cactus, and his wife, Beth the Fish. Talk about target audience. Left-wing, new parents, lovers of music and photography. And a good cream puff. You win the prize for perfect readers. You will be receiving your gift in the mail in 5-15 weeks. Canadian mail is slow.
- There are Diane and DMM, my trusty commenters. I'll call them the blog cheerleaders. Diane, PTA member, stay-at-home-mom, basically my evil twin, who was, until recently, the only consistent commenter on my blog. I love you <---this big---> for that. And DMM, you followed in Diane's steps nicely. Thanks, dude.
- Sarah's the newbie. Be prepared for some mind-numbingly stupid shit. You may actually get dumber.
- I think, oh, I hope, that Russell still comes over sometimes. Russell, the prettiest man on the face of the Earth. Russell, flaming gay. Russell, cock-tease.
- And then, aaaaaand thennnnn, there's Peggy and Dunkie. You bad, evil, naughty lurkers. I totally know you're there.
To recap: 5 politically misguided, dirty men, my 3 BFF's, 2 teachers, 1 hot teenage nanny, 2 new parents, 2 cheerleaders, 1 newbie, 1 very gay, very hot boy and 2 stalkers.
Notice how none of my relatives read this? And I've even told a few of them about it.
Oh well, I like you all. I'm glad you read this silly little blog.
(But could you, maybe, leave a comment every now and then? Diane and DMM are tired of picking up your slack, you slackers.)
*It may not be fair to lump Corky in with these guys. I have no personal knowledge of Corky being anything other than a fine, upstanding, dignified and brilliant man. But you are Chris' dad, and you know what they say about the apple not falling so very far from the tree...
In an unexpected twist of events, another lurker has been outed. Ha! Lynn, confess your sins, eat this bland cracker, do some squats and all will be forgiven.
Apparently, The Retropolitan is over here on the dark side (muwahaha), Andy is a sissy and Zombyboy needs a friend. Just for the record.
