For some reason every Friday this old post from way back in February gets lots of hits. That’s usually how I know it’s Friday. No one has ever liked it or commented on it. There’s really no reason why anyone would, after all, it was just an announcement that my book is available for Kindle, Nook and some other e-readers. It was the end of a long week of formatting and editing, I couldn’t feel the fingers in my left hand and I really didn’t have anything else to say. So, I just posted a picture of a cute baby and some snappy come on about my book. Done.
Now, like most bloggers, I check my stats. Not like a statistician who interprets information and like, you know, does something with it, but more like a frantic snow monkey who’s just heard about global warming. I do want to decipher the data and use it somehow to make this blog, well, sort of bionic, you know, bigger – smarter – stronger – great taste and less filling or is it tasteful and more fulfilling? Something like that. Anyway, all I can really tell by looking at my site stats is that most of the views must be from bots, because there is no correlation between number of views and likes or comments. This can only mean one of two things; spam bots are my largest audience or my posts are skunky. I’m pretty sure that isn’t the case, since some pretty smart people have told me otherwise.
My conclusion? I’m going with the bot theory.
Once again, we’ve reached the end of the week, and it’s been a strange week for me. Someone very sweet sent this video to me and now I’d like to share it with you. Dear readers, human readers that is, thank you for your appreciation and support. Peace.
