Every week I’m amazed afresh by the fact that my most popular post ever is one I did in October of 2010 about the Gaboon viper. Honestly, it really wasn’t that great. I have no idea why it’s attracted so much attention. It would be interesting to see how many all-time views that particular post has had, but I don’t know how to find that out.
I do know this…this past Thursday, it attracted 315 views, the most I’ve ever had in one day, and it made this week the the highest viewed week I’ve ever had, since I began in August 2008. Why? I wish I knew; then I would bottle it.
Or maybe not. I enjoy my little secret garden of a blog.
I was also noticing today that the tagline on the blog, if that’s what it’s called, is “Politics, Animals, Food and Books…and the occasional insect”. It’s been quite a while since I posted anything about politics, not that there isn’t sufficient provocation at the moment. But give me a while. I think I’ll feel more inclined when it’s election season.
Mostly I seem to be sticking to books and food. I’m even neglecting animals and insects. And this week I missed a golden opportunity. Last weekend I was bitten by a tiny little insignificant jumping spider, and had one hell of a week being sick as the proverbial dog. The good thing that came out of it is that I now have a fresh Epipen. As I keep saying, I love Nature. She just doesn’t seem to love me back. And now we are at war.
