American Idol Time Again?
Last year I sort of "picked" Scotty McCreery to win it all right from the beginning and was surprised how much traffic my blog saw because of it, so I guess I should try to do the same thing again this year. I hope there's some character on the show that generates a huge amount of buzz and will be almost guaranteed to make the top 10. The downside to all of this is that I'm going to have to watch the episodes of American Idol to see which horse I'm going to bet on.
I might even take the extra step and make a blog specifically for one of them if I think they're good enough. Think about it, if they make it big and win the entire thing I could turn the blog into a site that sells cd's and make some pretty good money if people think it's a fan-club or something. The upside is that after I pick which "horse" I'm going to try and get traffic from American Idol will become a much more interesting show as I now stand to lose something if my guy does bad.
This is starting to sound a lot like human horse racing, but I'm ok with that. I'm going to learn from my lesson last year when I should've bucked up and bought scottymccreery.net and turned it into some sort of fan-club/cd sales page to try and make some bucks by getting on the gravy train that is American Idol. Well, if you want to get in on this frenzy you can just watch some episodes of AI and throw down some posts(read:bets) on your pick and see if they win place or show. You may not actually make any money or win any special prizes, but it's bound to be a wild ride.
