THIS IS NOT A PORN SITE AND I DON'T WANT TO HOOK-UP.
See, there's this neat thing called Stats on my blog's dashboard, that allows me to see where in the world people are visiting from - what country, what websites have referred (linked) traffic to me (full web addresses included), what browsers are used, what day of the week it was, and what specific post was looked at.
This give me tons of information about where I might need to update, who my audience is, did they search for something specific ... for an author who's audience tends to be all over, it's great stuff. However, it's really creepy to see that nine people in the last month, from a porn/random hook-up site, clicked on some skanky picture, and ended up on my blog. I don't want my name attached to anything like that ... there are plenty of willing women out there. I am NOT one of them.
I did go to the site, to see where my name was. The home page was so explicit and disturbing, that I exited, and won't go back. I don't know where my name is attached, and I don't care. I'm just hoping that with the message I just sent to the company, it will stop. And, yes, I know that the instant the users see this site, they know it's not what they were looking for. It doesn't matter. That's not the point. I didn't OK this site to use my name, which I do own, and I don't want it attached to stuff like like.
For those who say there's no such thing as bad press/advertising ... yes, yes there is.
