Hoosier Happenings turns 5 years old this month. Since we have a local fireworks ban, I have cancelled the major celebration and have settled for this commemorative post instead.
A few months ago I stumbled upon the new format by which blogger records stats. These have never mattered to me before, but I did find a few things intriguing, and maybe a bit disturbing.
I'm running close to 32,000 views. I doubt that that is all that much (3 thats in a sentence...that's a lot). Obviously most of my readers are from the US, but folks in Canada, Australia, India, and a few European countries also seem to be regular followers. This is the 754th post....which means I'm probably running out of things to say, hence this post.
I have seven posts that have resulted in about 300 page views or more. And this is where it gets a bit disturbing (you'll see why by the titles). Here is a countdown in increasing readership order:
Burning of Democracy which is a post about "streamlining" government by doing away with unnecessary democracy
Obamish Acres Presidential Retreat which is a comical look at the possibility of President Obama creating a presidential retreat on an Amish farm after spending so much time in Elkhart County
On vs. In deals with wearing your Christianity vs. living it...but this is where it starts to get a little weird-it had over 1,000 hits. I'm sure some people were disappointed when they got here and read the content. Great way to be a witness I guess.
And the number one read post....with almost 3,000 hits and growing DAILY:
The Creeper which is a very short post I wrote back in 2008 about a tiny little bird called the brown creeper. Again, I assume people were disappointed with what they found when they got there.....but I can't imagine what they were hoping to find!
So I'm figuring that the majority of my readers are either wackos or perverts....which is why Hoosier Reborn of River City in good 'ol Republicania County likes to remain anonymous.
Thank you to all of my friends/readers who DON'T fit into the two general categories above. Despite a bit of a loss for words recently, there is still much to write about here in Hoosierland.
