Mr Monkey spent most of his weekend trawling through the archives of his blog and has realised how much time and effort he’s spent establishing it as South Tyneside’s Premier blog.
Unlike certain local bloggers, Mr Monkey has no need to promote himself at every available turn by linking to other blogs, using multiple sites linked to each other, posting comments on the ‘big boys’ sites (Iain Dale and Guido Fawkes) with links and pingbacks to his own site nor does he spend hours on Face Book, Twitter, message boards and chat rooms telling anyone who’ll listen to visit his site .
Mr Monkey relies on content and word of mouth which explains why Mr Monkey’s Blog is the most talked about blog in South Tyneside even after a week of posting nothing.
This chimp has spent the last week wondering how many of you were taken in by his April Fool prank – and yes for a moment, Mr Monkey did consider calling it a day because he genuinely believed that he’d achieved all he set out to do.
However, reading some of the comments left by bloggers and seeing the interest in his investigation into election fraud, perpetrated by council leader Iain Malcolm, CLICK HERE, plus yesterday’s post by a local blogger ‘advising’ bloggers not to visit Mr Monkey’s Blog and ‘warning’ people not to refer others to it – all this from a so called libertarian and lover of free speech – has put paid to any thoughts of retirement Mr Monkey had.
Congratulations Mr Hobbit, you gave me the kick up the arse I needed!
