My Beard Maintenance SEO is through the Roof!

First things first, I got a job back in September, so my upkeep of this blog has really gone downhill. I look at words all day at work, and well, the last thing I want to do at night is look at them here. So if you're the one person that's been all like, "And then what happened on that Souther Bike Tour???", I apologize. I'll get there. Eventually. I'm paying for the domain, so I might as well, right?

More importantly, in the months since my last post, my blog's comments section has been hecka crazy. For over 100 posts, not a single comment. Then all of a sudden... BOOM! Three comments! That's, like, infinite percent growth. Yup, people are finally starting to take interest in Old Troy's blog.

You're probably wondering what amazing post spurred this soaring popularity. I'll give you three guesses. "The one about Subway"? No, though that would make sense since nothing came out since then. Also, I just found out that some people don't like Subway, which is weird because who doesn't like sandwiches that taste exactly the same regardless of the part of the world you're in? "Was it the one about that time you found your stolen bike after it was gone for eight months?" No, twasn't, though that was a good post. Real uplifting story there, but no. "I dunno... the one about beard dandruff?"

Correct! Amazing guess! Since it's post on August 1, 2017, that itchy post has reached a previously unimaginable commenting level! Here, see for yourself:

So comment! Such interaction!

I've been telling all my friends and family about the amazing turn of events, and I couldn't hold back anymore. I had to tell you too, blog reader. Allow me to give a play-by-play:
October 29, 2017 - Bradley Fowler comments that he has a better beard product than T-Gel, and kindly offers a link to said better product. What a guy!

January 22, 2018 - Calvin Ewers responds that while he doesn't have any male family members with beard, he wishes he did so he could buy them the beard kit that Bradley Fowler mentioned on Oct. 29, 2017.  No mention of female or non-identifying family members with beards, though, so he may just be publicly airing his private familial shame of male-identifying beardlessness.

January 27, 2018 - Burri 69 (you know this guy is up for getting down with a handle like that) lets Bradley and Calvin know that there's a better blog for beard care. Another blog? The nerve!

It's been a real rollercoaster since finding this fame. A lot going on these days in the old bloggeroo. Sure, you may think Troy's selling out by allowing all these hyperlinked, promotional comments, so to you I say, "Troy's not selling out, the world is finally buying in!"
