Today marks a rather auspicious milestone.
This is the absolute worst day for traffic ever logged for this blog—and that possibly includes the first day I started it. I say that because the first day was at least glutted with intrigue and general, rubbernecking curiosity about it.
Don’t ask me. I’m not even complaining. Even if I was, no one would be here to read it.
It makes me wonder what kind of textual, Bermuda Triangle I might have breached.
Does it count as traffic when I read your blogs from the e-mail I signed up for? Cause somebody’s still reading :P. Also, here’s a Chesterton quote for you–it’s kind of long, but I thought you’d appreciate it. You may have already read it :).
“There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person. Nothing is more keenly required than a defense of bores….The bore, by his starry enthusiasm, his solemn happiness, may, in some sense, have proved himself poetical. The bored has certainly proved himself prosaic.” From Heretics, Chap. 3
Helene, I am not sure. I need to sing out how the data thing cracks out. But good point.
And I have seen the quote. And, as usual, Chesterton is right. My goal is to NOT–be that uninteresting person.
Thank you for being here! I appreciate it more than you know.
You are by no means uninteresting! I enjoy your blog posts :). Also, there is no such thing as an uninteresting subject–just uninterested people. Therefore, you cannot fail to be interesting–you just have to find your niche audience.
I meant to say, I do not want to be the causal carat list for someone’s “non-interest.” In a sense I completely MIS-referenced the Chesterton quote.
Sometimes I access directly from the email link, which does not go to the site unless you click on the link.
Somehow, I need to figure out the cross tabs or whatever lines out my traffic data, and see if that is indeed the case.
I do know this seems to be a characteristic of today–so I’m hoping it’s a fluke.
