Jody Rosen back in the Times

I actually read the entire article without realizing he had written it. It was only after I was back at the Times home page that I noticed his byline on the teaser to the article. It figures that he’d be writing about something obscure, and musical, and French…

  1. I, on the other hand, would never have read it if not for the byline. I felt a little cheated when I realized on the second page that the “recording” was not originally capable of being played back. The headline and first paragraph don’t let on, and I was skimming, so I didn’t catch it in the second paragraph. Anyway, it was nice to see Jody’s name there on the front page.

  2. If you ever have a website and want to draw traffic, mention your better-known friends. There are apparently a lot of people out there googling things like “jody rosen” and jody rosen ny times” and other variations. I got more traffic today than any day since I mentioned exit polls on mini-super-Tuesday — partly thanks to the two posts mentioning Hillary, but mostly thanks to mentioning Jody. Mentioning Scarlett Johansson a few weeks ago brought in almost no googlers — I guess if someone is TOO famous, then mentioning them doesn’t draw traffic, because no one digs deep enough into the search results to find a puny site like this one.

  3. blog magnet, n. a person place or thing whose mention draws people in droves to your blog. Now if I google “blog magnet” how many hits will there be?
