My weekend

People, people, maybe I should take off the weekend and not blog more often… Usually when I do that, my hits “drop” to about 30 a day (it’s amazing, 6 months ago I would have celebrated if they got that high, now I’m disappointed, when there’s less than 70). This weekend, I had about 450 hits on Sunday. And again as many today. And still counting. That’s right. There were about 1000 people on my blog in the course of the last 72 hours.

I’m frankly amazed and delighted, although I feel like I have a much higher responsibility now. I have to write more interesting stuff and keep a lot more people amused. At least, if I want to keep this up. The question is, do I want to keep it up? Or will I just continue writing what and how I write and not care about the numbers?

Well, in the spirit of that, my dear readers, what do you want? How do you like my regular features, Unusual Wikipedia Monday and Answering Questions Asked Through Google? Do you want any changes? More of something, less of something else?

If you want to give me hell, do so in the comment section. If you want to tell me how perfect my blog is, do so in person or in the comment section ;). I’d love to get some feedback!

Anyway, that’s not what I set out to write about, initially. I just wanted to tell you about the nice weekend I had: I started reading the Chronicles of Narnia again, to ready myself for seeing Prince Caspian, but then I got sidetracked by watching trashy horror movies and drinking coffee with different siblings as they dropped by one-by-one and barbecue-ing and ended up only reading The Magician’s Nephew. I’ll keep on reading though, and I think I’ll have it finished next weekend. Then I can whine about how the movie destroyed the book, or how they managed to stay true to the original in every detail. [I haven’t seen it yet, so I don’t know which one it will be.]

By the way, I think it’s interesting that they go about the whole thing in the order it was written and not in the order that C.S. Lewis himself suggested it should be read.

So, I’ve started this post with something I didn’t mean to write about, at least not that extensively and now, I can’t find a good finish. I’ll just leave it at that. I’m not Giles Coren, after all.

  1. Wow, that’s pretty good! My highest was 1541, but since most of them were looking for child porn, I don’t really think it counted :) . And it dropped to the usual 30ish soon after, anyway.

    And sure, there’s stuff you could change if you wanted to make your blog into boingboing, but why would you want to? It’s quite nice the way it is.

  2. Do I need to worry about it, that anyone would come to your place while looking for child porn? hmm… probably better not to ask. Some things I just don’t wanna know. ;)

    Thank you! I like my blog, too, but there’s always room for improvement. (For example have I not found any satisfying solution for categories problem. And I realise that it is a bit chaotic the way it is, but I don’t want to lose them.)

    Well, you can’t have everything, unfortunately. :)

  3. I do love “Unusual Wikipedia Monday”. I find it perfect for going off on my own tangent – tangent-seeking is quite a strenuous pastime!

    Your Google search terms make me envious – “Boys Corsetted” is the only even remotely interesting thing I’ve got on mine.

    Blog on, K, blog on!

    P.S – @ presti – Sooooo very off. Creepy uncle off… it’s a good thing we all love you like we do! :)

  4. Pics of Miley Cyurus in Vanity Fair, which I wrote an article about. Actually, my article was arguing that it WASN’T child porn. But since most people came through the image search results(1st!!) for “miley cyrus vanity fair”, I doubt they were looking forward to hearing my outraged comments on runaway fear and political correctness.

  5. @presti:
    Now you’ve made me blush twice in the course of 30 seconds. I think that’s a record.

    Boys corsetted is a very interesting search term… Maybe I should blog about that… ;)

    And thank you for your encouragement!

    Okay, that’s a good explanation. Not worrying anymore.
