I occasionally monitor traffic to this space using the handy graph the good folks at WordPress provide me with. I do this mostly to see if there are any oddball trends. Occasionally my hit-count will spike and usually it has to do with something specific that gets picked up by people searching for something or another. Yesterday, however, my hit count spiralled downward and was way, way lower than the normal range of visitors. I wonder what happened yesterday?
I wonder also the degree to which popular key words effect visitors to a blog? For instance, if I were to list:
Now let’s see how many people actually stumble over here looking for choice tidbits around these swell search terms. To those who do land here, read this and become irritated, geez I’m sorry about that. I won’t do it again. Promise.
I’m not very good at predicting these things. Sometimes I’ll make a post that I think will generate a lot of commentary and nada. But then again, I play the accordion.
