Now you may have noticed that I also said I had more Orlando Bloom stuff. I said this because on the day I published my Orlando Bloom story, I had 170 hits on my blog. This is more hits than I’ve ever had in one day and I imagine it’s because I got Orlando Bloom fans who were googling his name. So with that in mind I’d like to say: Orlando Bloom, Orlando Bloom, Orlando Bloom.
I am not exploiting his name because I really do like him. Hey, how many of his fans write romance novels with him in mind?
