Trending

2129.So I have, of course, been keeping an eye on my numbers. It's an unhealthy obsession, but it's mine, hey.

I've noticed particularly that the hits on this blog have been right around 200/day. That's great, and a happy thing I'm enjoying muchly. Trouble is, I can't identify what's sending people my way. The increase has been a gentle upward trend. My impulse is to want to do, of course, more of what's getting people to come my way, but they're coming from so many other places that I can't tell what that might be.

And this is where you come in!!!

If you came here and viewed things for more than a few seconds (or anything at all actually) please consider taking a moment and telling me what brought you here, whatever that might be. Is there something that you liked? I'd like to do things for the people who come this way, so name it, and I'll see what I can do towards keeping you coming back. Return visits are nifty!

Another thing I was noticing is that the Technnorati authority is kind of depressing me. A while ago, I had a Technorati authority of about 75. It dwindled over time to what you see now – kind of like a ditigal water torture. Does anyone really care about T-authority anymore? Does it mean anything important? Should I just ashcan it?

Anyway, if you came by here, thanks! I appreaciate it …  you could have gone eight zillion other places, and you stopped here. And that makes me feel good. I love doing this blog, you see.

I think it was a post on street blades that brought me here, but what keeps me here is you generally post interesting stuff. Like the recent bit on Firefox 3.5, for example, or the bit on the Corvallis paper. But it was street blades that brought me in.

Thanks for the feedback, Ben. I've held a bit of street blade stuff in reserve, so there's more of that coming up.

Speaking of which, you mentioned something about mixed-case on the Seattle street blades, and I never acknowledged you on that. You're right about that, of course, and one thing I have envied Seattle about is the cool street-bladage, which I think is very well-designed, and fun to look at.

I'll keep trying to be interesting too!
