Used to be a record spinner and in high school on Saturday nights, it was "Country Jamboree" on local station WHOU in Houlton Maine. The audience changed in listenership from the Top 40 Easy Listening up to that 6pm magic moment when programing switched. The country back in early 70's was a little twangy but had some themes Joe Listener in the real world could relate to. The music reflected the ups and downs of their lives. So to make a hit, you had to touch on a bunch of themes that many classic country records had. For example, mentioning the pickup truck, heading to the train station with an hot apple pie on the seat beside you as you picked up your old high school sweetheart would be a start. Dog in the back, doors ready to fall off the rusted rattle trap with the rebel flag in the back window. You could head into the bar territory by having a title "You're Not Much Fun Since I Quit Drinking" or for a real estate them, "Take This House And "Love" It" as your wove into the lyrics the aftermath of divorce. Or that "He's Driving My Pickup, Patting My Dog And Using My Garage", etc lyrics and song title. For blogs, as search engines glean and scan them, highlights mentiong sub prime, short sales, motivational training and how to tutorials seem to get noticed in results. If you get into blogs on tattoing or body piercing, you pull in another crowd in searches in your locale. It makes it time consuming to wade thru all the information and propaganda out there for the guy or gal in front of the monitor. Keep hammering away at your theme or niche. Reaching into other territories that you don't cover can get you noticed but what do you have to offer them?
