I'm terribly busy, and when your livlihood and your vacation depend on creating 5000 words in 48 hours - blogging isn't a priority, but I do have some notes on the blog.
Not by any fault of my own, but this blog recieved a whopping 12,800 visitors this month and counting. A couple of reasons behind the massive jump have been some fortuiously links, which pushed daily visitor numbers beyond 1500 for three days in a row. However, on a positive note, daily visitors have stabilised around the 300 mark, which is a great thing. What is even more heartening is that many of these visitors are not coming from random keyword searches which befuddle me - like these - One, Two, Three, Four, Five and Six. This is just a sampling. Makes you wonder about the pagerank system that Google uses.
That said, many of the visitors come 'directly' to the site - without being redirected from one of several bloggers who link to me - thanks Rashmi and Jai in particular. But these direct visitors are far more than the number of people who actually comment on the blog. The same IP ranges keep on coming back post after post, but rarely leave comments. So you guys obviously like the blog and what I write but leave zero feedback. OK, so some of you lurkers mail me and assume I'm someone else altogether.
Either you folks agree with everything I'm saying, which is a frightening thought really, or there is another reason. Please tell me what it is. I'm not going to write of escapades or show various bodily orifices on the blog - don't expect that. But the mismatch between visitor numbers and feedback is quite weird. Anyway, I really have to get home now, so see'ya folks and keep coming back.
