True art takes the human mind on a journey of discovery. This is also the goal of the serious flash fiction writer who writes a story that has sex in it; for this writer understands that sex is never just about sex.
I’m speaking about writers who understand that an erotic flash fiction story can be more than just good entertainment. If the story is good enough, it can be art, too.
Such a story can take a reader on a journey that in some way adds to the reader’s understanding of what it means to be human, that sex does not take place in a vacuum, that the best stories about sex are really not about sex at all.
The best erotic stories are really about relationships. They’re really about life.
Sometimes sex is a celebration of love, one of the most transformative acts that we know of.
But whether the journey is about love or just about pleasure, in the hands of a serious writer, the erotic flash fiction short story is always a journey of psychic discovery.
This magazine (blog) is published for readers and writers who appreciate a publication of serious writing and brazen sexuality. The blog is published near the University of Pittsburgh.

Welcome to the most exciting flash fiction publication on the Internet. I’m the Old Soldier, the editor/publisher of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
This publication first appeared online in September of 2008. There are over 3,000 pieces of content on this blog. Dozens of contributors have contributed content to the blog.
In the pages of this publication are posts about crock pot cooking, personal financial management for seniors, reports on the online adult video industry, karaoke as performance art, articles on blogging and commentaries on high-profile news events along with insights into life in general and on the struggles that all writers must deal with if they are to get their work done and so much more…
But at the very heart of this little publication is the flash fiction short story.
I invite you to explore the site and to discover the excitement of flash fiction as great entertainment and as a dynamic art form.

We all know that content is king. We all know that you should adopt a blogging schedule that you can keep. We all know that you should offer useful information/suggestions or entertainment or both.
But what about the little things that a blogger can do to bring more traffic to his or her blog?
Be creative people. Each of us can bring something to the table. This is what I do.
There is a bookstore a few blocks from my apartment that carries print copies of my self-published paperback book. I actually sell the book at a discount; but guess what? The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette and its URL are on the second page along with an invitation to visit my blog.

And I’m always ready to whip out one of my Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette business cards that also have the URL of my blog on it. I’m a good karaoke singer and I especially like passing out my blogger’s business card at karaoke.
So, my brother and sister bloggers, what are some of the little things that you do to increase traffic to your blog? This blog is averaging around 900 views every day for January 2013.
This is the Old Soldier blogging out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
