As I keep saying, I monitor my Webstats extremely carefully. I study them constantly throughout the day because, well, I have no life and I live in such oblivion these days that anyone showing me any attention for any reason is something to take note of.
The biggest mystery I find in my Webstats is when someone, out of the blue, appears interested in something I wrote without there being any obvious explanation for how they came to the post. They didn’t search for it and they didn’t come to the site via Twitter.
The only thing I can think of is there may be a lot of pings to this site that I just don’t see — probably because my Webstat software registers the visits as those by a bot, as opposed to a “hard” hit by a person. Or something. I have no idea.
The only reason it’s of note beyond me being sad and having no friends is if I had a better understanding of what people were interested in, then I would know to write about those subjects more. As an aside, it seems interesting to me that some people — who I assume are “VIPs” definitely seem to come to this site either in the very middle of the night or really early in the morning. It gives you some insight into the Web usage of powerful people.
But anyway. Welcome everyone. Except for the few stalkers I have — apparently — who are a little bit TOO obsessed with my meaningless writing.
