Ahem... Thanks to
Lookee there! 5+ days remaining in the month and we've already surpassed all previous months in this blog's history. I was going to describe said history as "long and storied" but that'd be just plain stupid.
How does one account for this sudden spike? A less than exhaustive investigation reveals that, clearly, the way to increase readership is to A.) announce that you're going to give away stuff, B.) reveal who, is ultimately the winner of said stuff, and C.) throw a hissy fit because some guy you've never heard of (and likely never will again), writes something that offends your delicate sensibilities.
The insights I take from these revelations demonstrate that a marked level of immaturity is my route to ruling the internet. I can live with that.
BTW, in the name of full disclosure, I will point out, once again, that my stats don't differentiate between "visits" and "unique visits", a distinction that would paint a much less impressive picture if I had that info. Another thing I can live with.
And once again, I'll take the opportunity to encourage all lurkers to come forward and say Hi. Anyone who does so will be rewarded with their own personal return-salutation. What could be better than that?
