See this picture? It drives more traffic to my blog than anything else I have ever posted. Nothing I have written in the last three years, since I posted this picture in a post about female action heroes, has gotten a fraction of the attention this one picture has. That's right. Sigourney Weaver in underwear is more compelling than any movie trailer or picture of Angelina Jolie that I have posted. I get hundreds of hits on this picture every week. Google images has done more for this blog than anyone. I also believe that this picture has convinced a few people that I have some writing skills. I have gotten a few offers from other blogs to write articles for them and they always, always cite the "Female Action Hero" post. Do you suppose they stumbled on the blog by searching for Sigourney? Interestingly, another picture on that same post also drives a significant amount of traffic to my blog. Another old-school beauty in the form of Linda Carter as Wonder Woman. She is lovely isn't she? But who knew that so many people out there were still so interested in women who made their start in the 70's ("Alien" was released in 1979 and "Wonder Woman" aired from 1975-79)? Or is it just the costumes and not the particular women wearing them? Probably a combination of both. Anyway. Maybe I need to post more pictures of scantily clad women. Just thinking out loud.
