Public Service Announcement: 50,000+ Views In Under 2 Months

by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™

When I started blogging, I remember the naysayers telling me that I wouldn’t last more than 2 months. They also said that I couldn’t write and that I couldn’t attract more than 3 people to my site. Instead of going off on a negative rant, I will just let facts be my proverbial middle finger which they can all sit on and rotate if they so please. It’s safe to say that I have surpassed the 2 month timeframe where I was supposed to buckle down under the pressure and quit. It also should go without question that I can write. Sure some people read my all cap rants and thought that I was an illiterate asshole that just found a keyboard, but I told those people not to underestimate me. I possess an intelligence that they cannot seem to grasp. I admit that I stuck with the caps just to spite people. There is only so many times someone can tell me that the caps were stupid and to be taken serious as a writer that I should drop them. All that made me want to do was keep using them. I didn’t give a fuck about being taken serious because I wrote for fun. As time passed, writing became therapeutic. Chicken soup for the soul if you will. To be honest, if I didn’t settle down and start writing, lord knows what kinda trouble I would be getting myself into.

My other site has 231,718 views with over 38,282 unique views. Not to shabby for someone who was never supposed to attract more than 3 people huh? My work has been read in over 165 different countries. I managed to get 50,000 views on that site in 2 and a half months with way more content and gimmicks than I have ever used on this site. This site has 50,000 views in just under 2 months with less content and no gimmicks. The reason I mention my other site is because without it there would be no https://theinfamousjcity.wordpress.com. When my other site got pulled, I started this one as a continuance, but if I had to start fresh I wanted to do it different. No more nude women (I miss you hoes) or all caps. No more being a disrespectful, lewd, controversial, shit talking asshole. Every aspect of my game changed. Now, I could have just waited for my appeal to go through on my other site and never started this one and I’m sure that I would have surpassed the quarter million mark on that site by now, but I must admit that I prefer putting stuff together using this platform I have created on WordPress. My combined site views equals just about 281,718. That’s way more than some IWC blogs that have been around for years. All these people starting little blogs here and there will take years to get to those kind of numbers. Trust me, if the numbers weren’t there I would have probably quit doing this shit a long time ago, but seeing my words reach so many people is an awesome feeling. Kinda addicting if you ask me. I always try to write something that will get more hits than the last post. Sometimes the numbers go up, other times they go down, but I enjoy seeing my progress as it lets me know what works and what doesn’t.

One thing that I never imagined when I started writing was providing a platform for other writers to be showcased. I know that getting these views can be quite the task. Ask anyone that starts a site with little to no fanfare. It can be frustrating. I know I don’t have millions and millions of viewers, but I don’t mind sharing what I have with those that are passionate to write and not have it fall on deaf ears, or in this case blind eyes. I would like to thank any and all writers I have ever featured on this and/or my other site. Thank you for trusting me with the editing and addition of pictures to your posts. Thank you for providing content that drives viewers to the site. Thank you for helping me build an online empire. Ok, maybe an empire is pushing it just a bit, but if I believe it to be true and work hard at it, then one day I can and will say that with 100% certainty. I appreciate all of you. I don’t want to get into names and shoutouts because I have a feeling that I might leave someone out. You know who you are and I salute thee.

As for the people who actually read, skim, look at pictures, comments,so on and so forth; Thank you for letting me entertain you. Thank you for letting me piss you off. Thank you for trusting in me to give you some good shit to read when you just want to shut the world away and get my opinion on professional wrestling or whatever else I ended up writing about that day. Thank you if you left a comment. Thank you for helping me create a community in a genre that claims there’s community, but hardly ever showcases it. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for making this a worthwhile experience. Thank you for your silent viewing. I understand some of you are shy, but say hi every once in a while. I promise I won’t bite. I know that I have disrespectfully dissed my foes in the past and as a result some people might see me as an unaproachable immature douchebag, but I assure you, that side only comes out when I’m provoked. I’m really just a down to earth guy who likes to write about shit he likes, mainly professional wrestling. I know that I tend to have a street orientated mentality, but that helps me be one of the most unique voices you will ever have the pleasure (or displeasure) of meeting in the IWC. There will never be another one quite like this. I promise you that. Accept no imitations. JCITY is an enigma, JCITY is The RAW Deal, JCITY is The Real RAW Shyt, JCITY is INFAMOUS, but most importantly, JCITY is human just like you and my words would mean nothing, absolutely NOTHING without YOU. I’m the people’s champion in this IWC shit because YOU believed in me when nobody else did. THANK YOU!!! Now let’s get this 100,000+ views right quick.

    I’m gonna click refresh until you hit 100,000…LOL! Glad you’re having fun doing this. And you are right about being a good writer. I’ve noticed your progress in the past two months. It’s hard to think that we were in the A.O. on the old Canton chatbox and that was A YEAR AGO! Damn, time flies!

    • June 27, 2011 at 10:38 am

      Ha, don’t refresh 50,000 times. I want to earn those hits by engaging the audience with good reads and any comments that may arise as a result. I try to not use so much slang and have cut the profanity by almost 70%. Writing this way is harder for me as I like to write how I talk and I constantly use profanity when speaking. I tried to step it up on this site though. Not only is the writing some of the best I’ve done since I started, but I seem to be writing way longer pieces that I used to. One day I will relapse to the all caps, it’s easier and I don’t have to watch my grammar, which could be a bit better. It really has been almost a year since we was kicking it on the TJR chatbox. That’s where this all started. Ya’ll fucked up by letting me know there were people out there willing to read my mindless dribble, lol. I bet nobody expected exactly what I would end up doing with the sites considering that my specialty was ignorant rants with a slight knowledge of the business, from a fans perspective. Now, I’m almost articulate. I disgust myself, lmao.

    Man you are so full of yourself it’s unreal.

    • June 27, 2011 at 10:47 am

      I thanked every single writer that has provided me with content since the inception of my blogging adventures and everyone that has ever commented or viewed my site. I also said that this would all be absolutely NOTHING without you guys. I don’t think that’s being full of myself. Humble, yes. Full of myself, no. I could have easily taken credit for everything, talked shit about how I’m the greatest writer in existence and said that my writing is what brings the people in and everything else doesn’t matter and that I don’t need the people and everyone should be considered lucky to have ever witnessed anything I have ever published. Now that would be unreal.

      If I was full of myself then so be it. I am a very self confident person both online and in the real world. Bitches find it sexy and guys respect it. I believe in myself and if you never learn a damn thing from reading my shit just know that you should love yourself. It’s not a crime to be your own biggest fan. I think I’m fucking awesome and carry myself as such. You should try it sometime. It feels good. 🙂

    • June 27, 2011 at 8:03 pm

      A million might be easier to reach if I posted up some boobs, lol. Keeping an integrity to the journalism is harder than I thought.

    lol you sound like Matt Hardy. You two should both do a video together explaining who you guys really are and why it will be your year.

    Congratulations on 50 000 views! Let’s celebrate with a with a Backdoor to Chyna review!

      June 27, 2011 at 4:57 pm

      Concerning the Chyna review, instead of “2 thumbs up!”, would it be “2 fucks up!”?

      • June 27, 2011 at 8:07 pm

        Chyna porn just dropped today, I’m not rushing to the store to buy it or anything, but when it does end up cumming my way [||]Pause, I will write something about it.

      Cool. I want Rock to do a Terminator movie. Or he can easily be the new Commando if they ever decided to remake that movie.

      • Capt. Smooth
        June 28, 2011 at 5:48 am

        Make it Terminator, but as The Rock.

        • Capt. Smooth

      Rikishi was the one who ran over Austin,
      DDP was Undertaker’s wife’s stalker,
      John Marston dies in the final mission and you control his son Jack afterwards.
      Now go top yourself you worthless piece of shit.

      Stop snitching Shaman.

          You had said: NO RAW SPOILERS PLEASE or I will kill myself and put a link to this site and names on my suicide note and the police will tack your IP and interview you.

          That’s snitching. Lol. If you kill yourself leave me out the suicide note. Now if you happen to be rich then by all means put my info on the will, lol.

    Y2John :
    Anything to keep of that amazingly excellent Shaman’s Harvest here once and for all. At least that way he will keep going on and on mentioning Backdoor To Chyna all the time. The guy is fucking incredible, you should pay him JCITY. He’s my idol.

    This site deserves way more views than 50,000. The quality is top notch and I feel like I can relate to you. There has to be a more effective way to get the word out on this site.

    • June 29, 2011 at 7:28 am

      Plugging can be quite a tedious task. The thing is not to many wrestling sites have comment sections and if they do I’m either banned for calling people out on their bullshit (there’s at least 3 of them) then others I have more views than them so why even bother. TJR is the only place with a good faithful audience, but those who enjoy my stuff from there have already been following and the others just hate me or are soooooo faithful to TJR that they refuse to cross over. Their loss though. As for Twitter, there’s a few hits here and there, but most hits come from search engines. My other site was easier to plug because sex sells and there was waaaay more places I could plug that. Wrestling fans have short attention spans and if you cant keep them captivated ALL THE TIME then they will turn their backs on you. At least the people who looked at the nudes would revisit that same post… for nostalgia purposes, lol. So far so good though. Maybe I should get a Facebook, but then that would just be another thing to plug. Another thing that can help is if people use the share button at the end of every post. If you have a Digg, Twitter, Stumble Upon or whatever kinda account you can help spread the word. At the end of the day the only way to truly blow up is to be featured on a major site or get plugged by someone who is. I’m trying man. I submit stuff to sites and shit, but I’m sure other people do too. They probably never even open those emails. Whatever. One day people will recognize the real. Talent and consistency will be the key that will one day open up the door to the promised land. I will be ready for whenever that time comes.

      I do like how this is from the ground up. Everyone can see the progress for themselves. I don’t need to inflate numbers or lie about visitors. All the proof is there if you look are enough since I put it all out there. Maybe this way is better. I go out and get the views, by hook or by crook its all my legwork. Sure I would appreciate the proverbial handout, but I don’t NEED it. I can make it on my own accord. Plus it gives me ammo for my shit talking, ego boosting adventures.

      A fan a day is all I need. When I make it and trust me I fucking aspire to make something out of this, we all make it. Trust.

    Love how there are 50,000 views yet only ever the same 5-10 commenters each time 🙂

    • June 29, 2011 at 2:30 pm

      Not everyone comments. Its a very small percent, but that percent makes this fun. If you click the flag counter 1,000+ people have viewed the site after 50,630 views. I’ve had about 2,000 hits since then so that means 1,000 came to the homepage and then nearly everyone clicked on an article of their choosing. If I had that flag counter up since the beginning I’m sure that number would be way greater. So you’re stuck on the number of commentators, but just because you say only 5 people comment, does that mean that the other 995 didn’t come to the site in the last 2days? Just look at a site like TJR, the same people comment all the time. So what? That’s the point. If I took off the comment section people would still view regardless. The comments let me expand on something I might have missed and is there for others to express opinions and or just kick it with other fans and discuss the topic at hand. Sure it might turn into a random ass conversation that has nothing to do with the topic, but that’s because there’s a sense of community. It may be nothing to you, but this is our part of the IWC. My job is to make sure the quality is up to par or better than other sites. Will there be better sites out there? Sure, but this one is amongst the best out there right now. I’m talking about quality here not popularity.That comes later. This site hasn’t even been up for long so of course its not going to have hundreds of commentators or millions of views. That takes time. Start a blog then you will see that the people just don’t come pouring in and leaving comments. You have to build something that’s worthy of the peoples time. The writing is the easy part. Getting the word out and making people care enough to click a link is the hardest part. I think I’m doing better than most though. Take for instance a site like Cewsh Reviews that I have recently seen on Rajah. They have been around for 3 years and have plugs on Rajah and that site is at like 44,000 views. Not bad at all considering that when I first say the hits it was like at 30,000. That’s in 3 years. This site has surpassed that in a few months. How many comments do they get? Almost none. I don’t mean to single anyone out but I needed an example so you understand how this works. My other site has 230,500+ views with over 38,000 viewers (in under a year) and that count only started after 100,000 so I’m sure its way more. At the end of the day all these numbers are imaginary brass rings, but the 5-10 people that comment are real and I rather have 5-10 people not only enjoying my writing, but feel like wrestling matters, and for my 5-10 peeps I will always try to provide a safe haven for them to talk about the sport they love when most of society doesn’t want to hear a damn thing about no damn wrestling.

      I didn’t mean to go on a long ass rant, but it was either that or [Insert vile insult here].

        June 29, 2011 at 9:27 pm

        Always go with the vile insult haha! But seriously, congrats on the milestone (piledriver?) and thanks for the content you guys provide. I’d like to see more writers in the future though. Anyway, think I’ll end it there, don’t like to suck too much dick. Proverbially speaking of course.

        • June 30, 2011 at 4:28 am

          I have tried my best to keep it civil. That can always change, but I want to bring people in not scare them away. I’m great when I insult people, but I’m positive that I can out debate anyone in a civilized manner. I’ll leave the shit talking in the columns. Unless someone ends up pissing me off when I’m in a bad mood then we can get it popping up in this bitch, lol. Ha, proverbially speaking of course is my shit so if you ever see people using that in IWC articles then they stoled it from me. I also do alot of the “but I digress” stuff so if you see that in IWC columns then they stoled that too. Sooner or later people will have no choice but to copy me since I’m a trendsetter. Ha, time to deflate the ego. *fades2black*

    • June 30, 2011 at 4:20 am

      Lol, that’s how I ended up on Tony Kegger’s “What If” columns because of a long ass comment. Sometimes I get carried away when I write. The words just flow. Someone had told me that I shouldn’t comment on my own site and just leave it for people to leave comments, but I like being interactive.
