Frankly speaking

SPT continues on a day-to-day basis. Six posts each weekday, a beer session on Saturday and links to the Internetherworld on Sunday. I think the whole secret to being a successful website is to stick to the original topic. We’ve done it so far… beer, cars, tech, humor, and a babe or two.

Rather than tell you how the site’s been doing recently, I’d like to show you the graph of visits over the last year.

Being the webguy for this site, it makes me smile to see that graph. It’s not all just cutting and pasting pictures, or embedding video code that makes the site work. It’s the staying on topic, keeping the reader at heart and the little things that make for a more enjoyable experience.

For instance, on a coding level, thumbnail pictures no longer open up in a new window with the same postage stamp style image; they’ve been rendered unclickable. As we’ve always done, featured images open in a new window. No need to use the back button and wait for the site to reload again. No cats. A sixpack of Weekly Babes in the sidebar and All the Babes are saved and collected into¬† galleries for your review later. All the babes for all the years we’ve been online.

Slinks now have video time durations in the title. You can decide whether or not to view the video based on the title and the duration. I thought about doing that for videos during the week but since there’s only six posts each day, and each one is usually about three minutes or so, it wouldn’t matter because that’s what we’ve been doing all these years. Get on, get off. Hey, wait a minnit. There might be a slogan there. TSHIRTS!!

I gotta tellyuz that some days I have nothing to post and always find a way to put up something of relevance. Some days I have an overabundance of content and some days I have absolutely nothing to post. Some days I have a hard time deciding which posts should go where on what day. I’m surprised that it works out. Every day I post for tomorrow, so I have to think about what the featured post will be. Still like the Quickies and the Jiffs.

After all these years, I still love doing this shit and I look forward to posting each day and I await the challenges I’m presented with daily. I truly appreciate all of you readers who stop by whenever you can. SPT is pushing 7,100 posts since day-1 and there’s a lot to enjoy here. I urge you to take advantage of the SixPack of Random in the sidebar. You’ll be surprised at what you missed or what you remembered.

Enjoy the weekend. Thanks a lot for stopping by.
