Who are you out there?
One of the things that I enjoy is finding out who visits this blog, and how. The interesting thing is what brings them (you!) here.
Sometimes I (accidentally) hit a topical note, such as mentioning the we're-going-to-get-wiped-out-by-a-meteor-oh-no-we're-not story from a few weeks back, which had a lot of people googling like mad for background info. By a quirk of fate, this blog seemed to get hit quite a bit, which pushed September's statistics way through the roof - almost 300 hits!
But sometimes I have no idea either why or how this blog pops up on Google's radar. Take this Google search for example. "Oil painting of cyclists". I mean, wha' the ...? First of all, I wonder what the story is behind such a thing. Why not golfers or gymnasts? And secondly, I was momentarily gobsmacked as to how the heck I'd ended up in the list (if you've clicked the link to the search already, you'll have seen the answer).
Funny old thing, life, innit?
