Sump’ns up. I don’t get it. Who ARE you people?
I mean ‘who are you NEW people’?
Thanks to Google counting just about everything, I know that I have maybe 300 regular readers. The desperate, the lonely and the antique dealers. Plus a friend or two (altho, come to think of it, they also fit into the first three categories…). Anyway….
Last two days I have had 2300.
Makes no sense. Usually I at least have to throw a sexy word like ‘boobs’ or ‘guns’ into the title to pick up my numbers. I confess to having done that a few times, so I know. One of my best read blogs was something like Sex, Drugs and Guns in El Salvador. Of course, I wrote that blog from my house. It was just artistic license, I swear. That is what I told the police anyway.
But I haven’t written anything sexy in a long time (forgot how, actually) and I don’t have guns so why the sudden increase in my numbers? Ok, I have prescription medications but I haven’t written about them. Not much to say, actually. Barely remember them, either. I think they are for dementia. So, I don’t get it.
Mind you, Google also tells me that more than half of my readers are from Russsia (.ru) and China (cn). I suspect that few, if any, of those people are actually reading the blog. I suspect that they are ‘spying’ on me. For whatever reason. I have some readers, a few friends and a lot of foreign spies. Much like our government it seems.
I bet they get more from me than they do from Ottawa.
I can’t imagine of what interest my blog might hold for a spy in Moscow, Beijing or even in the US? They thinking of running away to the forest? Don’t they know that if they can find me, their bastard co-workers can also find them? Where you gonna run, fellas? Go ahead and make a break for it but you can’t hide. Truly we are all now living in a giant suite at the Hotel California. We can check out any time we want but we can never leave.
Anyway, I appreciate the attention. No such thing as bad publicity, they say. Even if it is in Cyrillic or Mandarin.
