How Captain America’s Penis Hijacked My Blog

Yes, you read that right.

Let me explain.

I’ve been blogging for about 10 months now, on and off, and I think I’ve made pretty good progress. It’s been a struggle at times, but mostly, it’s been a nice way to blow off some steam, be a bit creative, and rant about my new favorite things, like the Batman Wallet or how awesome the Furminator is. Sometimes a couple of dozen people read my blog, sometimes a hundred or even two hundred read my blog, as was the case on the days I posted about mispronouncing “all intents and purposes” or about long distance friendships. On days like that I felt like the next best thing, even coming up with new names like “The Yuington Post” and “The new YOLO: YLYL (YuLiveYuLearn).”

Which is why I nearly died when I found out I got 500 hits on my blog yesterday.

500 hits! That’s nearly DOUBLE what I had on my most popular day! Did I finally make FRESHLY PRESSED? Am I famous now? Was all this blogging finally going to pay off?

No.

As it turns out, Captain America’s Penis had hijacked my blog.

You see, a couple of days ago I had posted a video (my first) to my blog showing the naked bicyclists during the Fremont Solstice Parade. It was a cool experience, which I had never witnessed before, so I thought it would be nice to put up on my blog. It was just a good way of documenting something cool in my life and then I kinda forgot about it.

Well, little did I know, I had accidentally videotaped someone with a little bit of clout in some communities. Yes, I had videotaped Captain America. I wouldn’t have found this out if I didn’t check where all these hits came from, and it turned out about 400 of them came from a website called queerty.com, which turns out to be a gay-friendly site. They had done of of their own reporting, and showcased slideshow of the people at the parade here: PHOTOS: Freak Flags, Bare Buns Fly at the Fremont Solstice Parade. Curious as to why so many people had been referred to my blog from that specific site, I checked it out and I soon realized someone had put a link to my website in the comments section, amidst the outcry that queerty.com had censored the photos.

So, there it is. 400 people came to my blog to watch a video to find the half second where naked Captain America zooms by, and to see if they liked what they saw, if you get my drift. All I have to say is, Captain America, whoever you are, thank you for generating more hits to my website in a split second than I have in about a month. As the saying goes, any publicity is good publicity, right?
