And so, when google alerts flagged me that for a couple of days running, I had a spike in readership here, I rushed to see what had happened. After all, the most recent posting was a couple of months old. If I had a new flux of readers, I wanted to know where they came from and why. At best, I could then find some way to reward them by providing more of what they came to see. At the least, I could become more aware of the site that referred them, visit there and see if we had common ground.
But it was a frustration. As you probably know, websites get a little snip of information that tells where a new arrival came from. I looked, and what I found was this:
You see, they might not even have wanted to come here. Maybe the link was in error, or they were looking for the football player with my same name. I can't tell.
If YOU came here looking for something, I would be overjoyed if you left me a comment or an email. Seriously, sometimes even the spam is entertaining. And if you were looking for something that you didn't find, let me know and maybe I can help.
See you next time.
