Mega Killer Stats

What's the best way to get hits for your blog? Is is consistency? Wit? Originality? Sure, that might help, but nothing seems to work better than being a cannibal murderer.

Kevin Underwood, the young Oklahoman who murdered an even younger Oklahoman named Jamie Rose Bolin and apparently planned even worse for the little girl, has a blog 'wittily' titled Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K. (Bill & Ted's reference, in case you didn't know). I didn't delve too far into it, but the front page is remarkably normal for a wacko nutjob.

Like most blogs, Kevin's was moderately unpopular—until a few days ago, that is. Here's a look at his blog statistics for the past month:

He's amassed over 300,000 page views in just a couple days (by way of comparison, this blog averages around 90 page views per day). The downside of this massive influx of readers is the comments, which tend toward the negative, to put it mildly.

Well, they probably won't hold a candle to the reviews he'll get once he's in prison. Those guys tend not to like child murderers. Especially not cannibal ones. I don't think they'll care that he's become a 'successful' blogger. He's sure got it coming.
