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.
