Tried to scare my lurkers out of the shadows, and they wouldn’t take the bait. But it was great to see the comments from my adored regulars, as well as some Finkites who don’t normally leave comments. Yay! That part worked. Thanks for the comment lurve! You know I thrive on it.
So, how do I know the lurkers lurk? Stats, fiends. Stat reports. I don’t know who each visitor is, but it lists a general location (of the ISP, that is; it could be that a person browsing from Cleveland is listed as being in Akron, so it’s all rather generic). Therefore, you needn’t fear that I’m stalking your clicky behavior.
This week, I got about 160 hits a day. Compare that to the number of comments…lessee here, do the math. I get roughly an average of four different people leaving comments on a daily basis. Four is 2.5 percent of 160, so we’re good on the 1% rule.
At any rate, I’m happy. If people are reading and getting something out of it (even if it’s a sense of slightly confused bemusement), I’m delighted.
Goal for this day? Hunt for a new RtB template. This one’s two years old, almost to the day. Time to remodel.
Have a great Thurgsday — I’m off to walk Rousseau, then get to work. Lurkers: Boo! There. Dyscare ya?
