REMEMBER THE BOOK, "Watership Down"? For some reason the only title I could think of for today's entry is "Readership Down" for my guess is that many of our followers resolved not to waste time on reading our ramblings on line this new year. I don't think of myself as a particularly competitive person, but since I have access to the statistics, I find myself trying to beat previous performances whether I intend to or not.
For instance I can tell how many times an entry has been visited in the last week (month or day, also) and it's been running nearly half less since the first of the year. I know the most devoted of you are still following us because your comments prove so, and what erudite people you are.......the comments usually being more interesting than the piece itself, definitely worth going back to read.
And one of the wonders of modern technology is that I can even tell where the readers are. In the past week:
1008 United States
38 Great Britain
I can only assume that most of them were stumbled upon by mistake, but Russia has shown rather consistently which is a great mystery. India? Chile, which is a recent showing? One never knows.
I know our news these days isn't quite as dramatic as it was a few months ago, or it probably is, but we've just gotten used to it. At any rate, I'm forever grateful for your keeping in touch and I'm open to any and all suggestions for making our web log more interesting.
