Last week I wrote a post with the word God in the title. The stats page with my blog software showed that fewer people than usual took time to read that post. Later in the week I wrote about my dog. Readership went through the roof, or should I say woof.
Clearly people are much more interested in Dog than God.
I understand this. What my dog is, really, is a packet of unconditional love. Who wouldn’t want to live every day with a packet of unconditional love? She adores me, no matter what. She doesn’t care about my few extra pounds, my messy desk, or that I hate dusting. It’s very good for my ego to have that unconditional adoration around.
When people click on a post about Dog, they anticipate a feel-good story. Interesting that some people don’t click on a post about God. I assume it’s because they don’t anticipate a feel-good story.
