Cashing in on Swine Flu
OK, OK, I'll come clean: When I wrote about the swine flu last week, it wasn't because I was particularly interested in that story. It was a shameless play for traffic. I was hoping to draw a flood of visitors, and I was hoping to draw a flood of visitors for the sole purpose of making a few dollars off my ads. Hey, I'm a rocker, not a choir boy. What do you expect?
In my defense, I must say that I wasn't not doing anything different from the traditional media. They make their money on their audience too.
Anyway, it didn't work as well as I had hoped. If it had, I probably would have felt so bad that I would have ended up donating all the proceeds to orphans or something. How is it that you end up with Catholic guilt even when you're only Catholic by default?
