Shameless Use of Cute Kitten Photos? - I Can do That

"Cutest photos of the year, so far…"
Oddly Enough, Reuters Blog (February 16, 2010)

"Blog Guy, what's the most shockingly shameless thing you’ve ever done to attract reader traffic to your blog?

"Um, I'm guessing it might be posting pictures of a cat breastfeeding an injured squirrel while her kitten snuggles with it, and the little kitten and the squirrel hugging each other, and the squirrel eating out of the cat dish….

"I get the idea. That IS cheap and shameless! All the cat people and kitten people and squirrel people on earth are going be sending that to each other for days, maybe weeks!..."

Months, if I'm lucky.

"Shameless"?? I prefer terms like "human interest" or "good marketing."

You think that photo is cute? You should see the other two on the post.

No, really: You should see them.

Enjoy.
