Blogger is attempting to convince me that I actually had 8,777 hits on the blog yesterday. Also, it's still early in the day and the page views are already at 742?
Like the title of the post says, "Um, sure. I believe it!"
Yes, this is my skeptical face (to paraphrase my buddy Surfcaster).
Now on a normal day I'm happy to get over 500. Truth be told, I'm happy if at least one person reads my scribbling. Someone other than myself of course. Over 500 makes me ecstatic.
Things have been trending upwards as of late, I owe a great deal of credit to both Tuna and Juvat. They have brought in a number of new folks if the statistics Blogger provides are any where near accurate. Page views are trending upwards, some days over a thousand. Lately, they run about 600 a day on average. Respectable, neh?
But when I saw that massive spike yesterday, I started doubting the veracity of Blogger's statistical-keeping ability. I mean seriously? From averaging approximately 600/day to over 8,000? I mean sure, it's possible, right?
Ah well, who knows? Maybe we do have that many folks checking in daily. Time will tell.
Two other notes:
1) Mohave Rat has rejoined the member's list. Welcome back Rat. We missed ya.
2) A certain Mr. Gonzalez has pinged me twice about adding his blog to my blogroll. Same comment two different times. So I thought I would let you, The Readers, decide. Check out The Last Tradition and if you think it should be added to the blogroll, indicate with a "Yes" in the comments. If you don't care one way or the other, indicate with a "Meh" in the comments. If opposed, you know what to do. Let's do this democratically. (Heh, right. It's still my call innit?)
That's all I've got right now.
