The Blog Mystery

The blog thing is a mystery. Really.

Don’t you ever wonder how you get 153 hits on your completely terrible blog posts and only 6 on the profound and brilliant ones? Then you find out that 5 out of those 6 hits were your family. Because you texted them.

I don’t get it.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the little mice who run the servers for my blog site are released from their cages every morning and allowed to run randomly about on a map of the world that has electrodes or something like that under it. When their tiny feet happen to touch on one of those sensors, that part of the map lights up and zoom, my blog post shoots off to some country like Latvia or Namibia or Vanuatu or some nearly deserted island where only eleven people live.

There’s no rhyme or reason. Believe me.

Honestly, I write these posts for pure enjoyment. I have no agenda, no outline, no purpose other than to share a bit of what goes on in my rather odd brain. So if it comes across that I’m a little quirky, kinda strange, really nice, sort of smart, totally Christian, fairly good at writing, or very proud of my kids and grandkids, then you know me pretty well. And really, the rest is not important. Especially the part where I throw things when I get mad. Except I haven’t done that for a long time. Throw things, I mean. I do the dishes instead.

So, wherever you are in the world, I’m honored that you took the time to read this.

We’ll see where the mice land tomorrow.

  1. Wendy, when I was writing my blog on a regular basis and checked out my stats, I found the very same thing happened to me. I understand your curiosity. I only wish what I considered my better posts got far more attention.
    Anyway, just to you know, this Canadian reads your blog whenever you write it, the description you made of yourself is pretty accurate, and I really enjoy reading what you write.
    Happy blogging.

  2. You have uttered the question which perplexes me also.
    A little ditty of no thought gets tap danced on. Really?
    As long as we do this for ourselves… all is okay 😉

    This is one more Canadian who reads your posts on a regular daily basis… and enjoys both the deeply profound and the simply fun. Keep writing, and I’ll keep reading!

  4. The mouse made it to Australia today, the mouse that hits my blog seems to like France and bizarrely Denmark, who knew I appealed to the Danish. I also have one person in Korea who I think stumbled on me by accident and never came back, alas.
