I like checking my blog stats and I want to thank all of you that have taken the time to drive by and park it for a minute or two…. I especially want to thank every blogger that took the time to leave a comment even if it made me jam on the breaks and manage a head -on into my dashboard. That collision made me re-think what exactly is the sole purpose of having a Bar graph to size up the amount of viewers who possibly read, but mostly skimmed through one’s material. I fancy a Bar that can graph two points of vodka and one point vermouth to meet in the center of my open triangle glass.
My Graph looks exactly like the results of my last stress test, It’s either over the top in jubilation or barely audible teetering on the DNR line, ready to activate the code blue team. Maybe a little mountain dew will help. (Oh wait , for those who don’t Get that, it’s about a Code Red Drink…). Maybe I should pull my blog over to the side-bar; I might be tagged with a WUI. Writing Under the Influence…
My stats have sunk to an all time low and are in need of a little CPR, (collective public reading), and I only have myself to blame. It has been difficult to jostle my brain and center some assembled thoughts due to an unexpected situation which I can’t bring myself to write about………just yet. I pulled the emergency stop and let Charlywalker off at a local stop to try and catch another passing blog. Maybe to tackle some fresh air or use the bathroom, albeit that today’s local Rapid Transit seem to be missing toilets. It’s interesting to see the dramatic drop in the charts when one is M.I.A. and lacking words to press onward. My bar graph fell below the poverty line which leads me to believe that this avenue of exploitation is limited and contains boundaries that do not extend past the freshly pressed crowd.
When I surf the turf and leave a reply or five, I notice the Bar has risen and the hits just keep on coming, but if one does not pass the days responding to other posts, the towering lines falter and your blog becomes yesterday news and too Blog(se). Everyone wants a fresh piece to stimulate the blog brain, and ,who really takes the time to read and review older posts? How far back will readers go on a site until they have seen enough to satisfy their curiosity. This is not a venue that has a beginning, middle, and end, this is a continuum of daily blurbs to enlighten or heighten our day. Our stats report the daily dose of drive -bys, but do not forecast the future of long time devotees. Our bar height is in the hands of fellow readers who hold the power with the click of a Like button.
I would Like to express that when my graph is at it’s peak it is thrilling to know that a chosen few are possibly enjoying what is being written; I’d hate to think that the visit was just a ploy to boost ratings or a self promotion via bootlegging a more popular blog. Some replies have a response that are longer than their initial blog entry for the day. I found I needed to take a coffee break in order to finish reading them…….which then led to a future bathroom break…..which ultimately led to an unscheduled stop.
My stats graph may be under par, but it is still colored in with incredible folks who I have never met yet display great character in their being. I can tell this because my graph is highlighted in neon and it glows. I know when a Soul has dipped into my blog and pounds the wood-gated entrance onto my dashboard. I can feel when someone Makes that Face reading my blog and getting the Jones -on in order to Spin liberals and drop an Anvil on the blog-heads. This is just One Mixed Bag of terrific people that help my Bar stool reach new heights and I say thank you to all of your compiled Random Thoughts that help me see the Maniac in me and to start again with A Clean Surface. Gee I hope I didn’t Burn any Bridges….ohhh What The Fluffy……I’ll just belly -up to the Bar.
Still trying to spread the humor.
