|Dec. 20th, Requests|
|I've filled a couple of repeated requests for your wallpapering pleasure, namely Jennifer Ellison and Katie Price... Neither of which I've ever heard of before, but I guess I'm not really that into this sort of thing. I didn't even bother to find out if they're actors/singers/models/bus drivers, but here they are and they want you to click the banners. Well not really, but I'm sure they would. |

|Dec 13th, You bunch of freaks :)|
|I've added some winter/holiday themed wallpapers in anticipation of Christmas and New Year's, but I might as well have left them out. All you guys care about are semi-naked pornstars and weird fetishes such as feet and other bizarre motives to brighten up your desktops. After uploading wallpapers of Jenna Jameson and the before mentioned holiday themed images, I've seen Jenna being requested at a 10:1 ratio when compared to wallpapers featuring Santa and snowmen.
I think I've got a pretty good idea of what type of offering I need to prioritize... :) I might even add a fetish section, if I get enough further requests, even though that is against my better judgement.
UPDATE: We've had our first uploader today, his name is Alejandro and he submitted a picture he took on a trip he made (you can find it here. After a week of operating and over 4,000 wallpaper downloads, I was pleased to see an actual upload :)

|Dec. 11th, Growing steadily|
|I've been working like mad coding this section of my site. It's by far the most advanced php/mysql effort I've done since I started in this "business", even though it's all still rather basic. I am learning, though, and that's a large part of why I'm doing this anyway.
I'll be doing a poll soon, to see what wallpapers you people are actually looking for, so I can expand the selection accordingly. I've got a pretty good idea of what's missing looking at the failed searches you guys make (some are pretty sick, by the way), but I'd still like to do a poll. If for no other reason, then just because I haven't done one yet.

|Dec. 7th, New ideas|
|A funny thing happened the other day. I was looking around my server logs and noticed an insane amount of requests for a file that doesn't exist on my server anymore. It occured to me, that restoring that file might bring more traffic. And seeing how I love to play with traffic statistics, the new wallpaper section was inevitable (menu in your left, or top). Initial results are staggering and my traffic analysis tools have much to process. The banners are getting an exercise out of it as well ;).
On the subject of generating traffic, I've got another idea that'll gradually become a reality in the course of the coming months. It's a project for Jezdec.Org and it's concept lies heavily on user interaction. In other words, it's the kind of thing that keeps a user coming back for more. I've done some research on similair projects (glasujzame.com, simpatije.com, ratemybody.com) and have achieved a basic grasp of what makes them tick. I won't be targeting the user's vanity, however. I hope to make a play at more positive emotions than that.
