Citizen of the Month

the writing and photography of Neil Kramer

Inspirational Sunday: Loyalty

Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends.

Talk to people in their own language. If you do it well, they’ll say, “God, he said exactly what I was thinking.” And when they begin to respect you, they’ll follow you to the death.

Leaders are leaders only as long as they have the respect and loyalty of their followers.

From my Google Analytics stats —


There’s also some wonderful news to report —

— blogging friend Schmutzie is now cancer-free! I’d like to think that our photos to her “cockroll” gave her some added strength. I was certainly proud to be the first to share my cock photo with her! It is great how we can help each other. I know the support of the blogosphere certainly helped keep Sophia’s spirits high during her breast cancer/DCIS  surgeries.  As always, I’m ready to send good vibes to anyone who needs it!

To continued good health, Schmutzie!

A Year Ago on Citizen of the Month:  The Art Gallery


  1. I feel so inspired right now, maybe I’ll go find some people to lead.

  2. You know, those people that only visited once are clearly members of that vast demographic of people with no taste whatsoever. You’re probably better off without them.

  3. Iron Fist — the vast majority of my readers come for a photo of Britney Spears stepping out of a limo without her panties on.

  4. 1 visit, is that like 0 seconds spent on the blog, because statcounter can’t work out timing it on one page?

  5. haha – you’re delightful sometimes, you know?

  6. LOL I love the quotes and am swiping them for my collection. And congrats to Schmutzie — hope she never has another sick day in her life.

  7. Respect? Ewwww. I like to instill fear instead.

  8. nothing like getting folks to follow you to death

  9. I am a return visitor.

    I thought that picture was of Paul Bunyon.

  10. Hey! I remember chicken boy! Hurrah!

  11. Aaaannd another nice and creative cock picture, courtesy Neil!


    Also, congratulations Schmutzie!!!!

  12. Shoot, a fellow blogger and I were just discussing you over drinks on Friday night. That’s right! The DC gals are discussing Neil!

    You sure you want return visitors?

  13. Mammaloves — did the discussion turn dirty as you got more and more drunk?

  14. Whoa! Neil! Where did you find that cool black & white photo of the Chicken Boy Restaurant! I’ve never seen it!

    Chicken Boy’s motto is: “It’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice.”

    CB has many loyal followers and admirers, due to his sunny outlook on life. Watch the CB site ( for the resurrection of The Boy in Highland Park…coming soon!

  15. Don’t feel bad, nearly 75% of my viewers on my site for 5 seconds or less. I hate that stat.

  16. since i’m totally clueless with stats and barely passed in college, isn’t that a good thing?

  17. Yes, Neil, all the cock love certainly helped. More than people know, for sure.

    Chicken Boy is creepy as all hell.

  18. Yay for Schmutzie kicking cancers ass!
