But, back to the `why'........ as you see by this blogs page view count.... this blog has had it's heyday..... one doesn't have counts of over a 1/2 million on BS blogs..... I often encounter UFO blogs.... usually in a def/bunked state..... with only a few thousand page views........... UFO blogging is not an easy endeavor to stick with.... the `rewards' are virtually non-existent (perhaps appropriately considering the subject matter?)..... as very few `UFO blogs' climb the internet ladder to any level of monetary success (even minimally).
Indeed, as in my recent Podcast where I talked about the Five Kinds Of UFO Websites quoting largely from a piece I wrote in this blog in 2010 in an article called `UFO Knowledge - Take Your Pick'. In simple terms,...... UDCC does NOT fit the standardized UFO blog mold..... UDCC brings to readers REAL VIEWPOINTS on an on-going basis about the anomalous phenomena in the world. A blogging opinion. Few on-going UFO bloggers even feel the need or urge to write in such a manner anymore..... it's so easy to pick up the `great (FAKE) UFO videos' from the gathering sites. (Without ever trying to source.......). IMO.... LAZY blogging that does NOT serve UFOlogy or their readers.
IF you read the above link - you see I'm not so kind about ANY of the types of UFO sites you find on the net. I've told readers that ONLY A FEW UFO websites are even worth their time of day............ UDCC remains one of the only UFO websites that OFTEN attempts to feature what other UFO blogs are doing (other than tight blogrolls that are unchanging on the big UFO sites that are certain about their view on UFO's) - sending you to the `competition' so to speak. You see that anywhere else? Anyone else trying to expand your mind of ideas on a subject?
Indeed, how ANY UFO website thinks they are remotely worth the time of day that hasn't went into the Bigelow connections and FEATURE the Orb Phenomena --- is not worth the time of day..... as I said.............. Oh, BTW, that is nearly EVERY major UFO website............ And yes, the `Disclosure' dog and pony show is as worthless as the others IMO........
Additionally, `Disclosure' happened. The media `got the message' to lay off the `UFO's are aliens' coverage in late 2011 with the announcement by Phil Larson. (On other websites you will be hard pressed to find Phil Larson's name or importance to their own website.) Sheeples are not to wonder about such things. Your government is IN CONTROL............. Consequently, even having a blog with the UFO Disclosure name is almost silly nowadays. (BTW, the name of UDCC for my Kindle Subscribers is UFO Countdown Clock). And, the simple web searches when the Disclosure Dog and Pony show was hot (really luke warm, they thought they were hot) - that brought people randomly to UDCC have dried up substantially.
Who cares really... those folks BELIEVED in an honest government about sensitive matters...... an absurd proposition on the face of it (probably democraps) .... and even those days are evaporating.
Still doesn't answer the `why' however - does it. The reason is to create a UNIQUE UFO blog. One that YOU will WANT to read at least on occasion........ one that makes a `requirement' of YOU to even be a part of it. The inter-actors of the UFO scene. People who appreciate the UDCC ------------ DIFFERENCE. (Such as the honesty of focusing on Bigelow and Orbs for example - real issues.) Folks who will WANT to express their opinions. And perhaps, read my books and views too. Perhaps turn THEIR friends onto real UFO speak - one that isn't afraid to bash the BS of UFOlogy.
I think regulars can see the UDCC evolution already..... a frequent SHORT podcast about UFO's....... an on-going real chatbox with real interactions with the webmaster and others...... longer thoughtful posts about the search terms of UFOlogy... private mailings.......updating and continuous talk about the changing nature of UFO reports --- you know, real UFO blogging.
It's the type of near daily UFO website that any UFOlogy seeker SHOULD want to be a part of. ESPECIALLY considering the lowly competition....... lol.........., right? (And a webmaster can always hope that sophisticated `surfers' know how to interact with the marketing efforts of a webpage - to reward a blogger (Amazon purchases etc).) By the end of the year - I hope to have many many dozens of folks who have signed up to be put onto the private listing. UDCC can grow numbers from there - as far as I am concerned. (Yes, Alexa numbers and Quantcast will go down or vanish - the difference between quality and quantity. Also, I have other blogs that have similar rankings to UDCC without nearly 1/4 the mind effort.)
So --- here's YOUR chance to be on the private Mailing List - by doing such - you will get my occasional mailings directly. I will also, in the future and only occasionally - use this for in-depth posts too. So, IF you want to get that type of private UFO blogging - here's your opportunity.
After you are on my UDCC MailChimp Mailing List you STILL have one more step to be put onto the official BLOGGER PRIVATE listing for this blog. When I transfer the e-mail you provided for the MailChimp listing - to the BLOGGER listing.... THEN ---- YOU will get an e-mail from Blogger INVITING you to be on the private listing for UDCC. YOU must accept that to be able to sign in on Private Day Settings. Got that? TWO Steps.
I hope I convinced you to be here for the private setting!
