This blog goes back to December 2006. It has never had a large following. In my prime, I was getting about 86 hits a day. Recently, numbers have fallen to around 60 hits a day. I have been fine with this. Willy-nilly writing whatever comes to mind, posting a recipe or photo here or there.
Then I posted the Google Doodle for Albanian independence. In less than 36 hours, 3,629 people have come to see this post! Let me repeat: three thousand six hundred twenty nine people have come to see that post. That is 2.5% of all people who have ever visited my site!
I am astounded. My stat chart is going to be very lopsided for the next month.
I am sad that these aren’t readers who will stay or engage in the conversations that I like to have. However, I am happy that the picture I took allowed Albanians outside of the Albania-Kosovo-Macedonia region to see their Doodle.
