10 Slideshows You Must See RIGHT NOW! - OnMedea

10 Slideshows You Must See RIGHT NOW!

| | Comments (5) | TrackBacks (0)

OK, online media publishers - enough with the freakin' slideshows!  They're nothing but a waste of time to those who click through all those pages of The World's Top 10 Shellfish and the Best Tasting Fruits You've Never Tasted.  What's the real reason for these time suckages?  Page views and ad impressions - the life force of online media (yes, I admit, my humble blog also depends on these metrics).  And what's the best way to rack up page views and ad impressions?  Slideshows with one image and, on average, three ads per page.  Multiply that by the Top 50 Female Insurance Industry Executives - and you get the idea.

But you didn't come to this page for my rant against Slideshows - you came to see 10 SLIDESHOWS YOU MUST SEE RIGHT NOW!  Let's get to it!  (Note: I have mercifully avoided the obvious and did not put this in Slideshow format.)

10 Unbelievable, Unlikely Animal Friendships


What Booze Looks Like Under A Microscope


Foxes Of Finance


11 Craziest Things About The Universe


Top 10 Best Tennis Bottoms


19 Signs The Economy Is Worse Now Than Ever In Your Lifetime


The 20 Most Ridiculous Looks From The Spring 2011 Men's Collections


Top Grossing Animated Movies Of All Time


Top 10 Mobsters


And no Slideshow list is complete without the almost daily CNBC offering of WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE PLACES TO LIVE.

World's Most Expensive Places To Live


And the irony is, this will be my most popular blog to date.  Perhaps I should ignore my own comment above and get into the Slideshow racket.  My first one would be Top 10 Negative Ben Silverman Blogs - all of them coming from me.

Sorry, Jill, I actually like slideshows. AT work I'm mostly looking for some kind of "time suckage" to get me through the day.

Roger Ebert refused to have his stuff reworked in slideshow format on Huffington Post for just that very reason. Bumping up pageviews.

Captain America said:

You need more animal slideshows.

Than unlikely friends one is great.

Just out of curiosity, what's the best way to create one of these slideshows on a wordpress blog?

About Medea

Medea Medea was a real bitch from classical mythology - as most famously dramatized by Euripides.

She was a sorceress and wife of Jason, whom she assisted in obtaining the Golden Fleece. When Jason deserted her, she chopped up their children. One could say, Medea acted as rationally as a major media company.
