I continue to get very…mysterious…pings in my Webstats from people poking around deep inside the site out of nowhere. The latest person is using Google Proxy so I have even less information about them than usual.
I can never tell if these mysterious people are interested in my political ranting or my creative ranting. I don’t even know if they’re doing some sort of due diligence on me for this or that reason.
It’s all very curious. I only bring it up because I’m such an anonymous nobody that *any* attention I get from someone trying to hide their domain name, etc is enough to pique my interest. But as “JCal” says, “chaos is a ladder” so, who knows, maybe when the US collapses into civil war, revolution and or tyranny I’ll become someone of note.
What’s more, I got a notification from Facebook telling me I qualified to be a “professional creator” because my content’s high engagement. This makes — on the face of it — no sense. I’ve noticed no additional engagement from my activity on Facebook. This makes me wonder if maybe people are looking at all the Facebook Lives I’ve posted to this site over the years (for some unknown reason) and I have videos with a lot of views and I just don’t know about it.
I continue to believe I have one last hattrick in me. But death be not proud. I could drop dead any day now and never live up to that “potential.”
