[Another] word about hitcounts
I had a lovely exchange with one of the boys (and I'm old enough to be their mother, so don't put lipstick on that pig) from Clusterdouche. He had been picked up in a link by you-know-who at the round up you-know-where and had what one brilliant blogger called "morning hitcount wood."
Then...nothing. As I wrote to the Clusterdouche auteur:
oh that's so typical.
They hit you hard, put you away wet, and then NEVER CALL. don't you feel USED?
It is obvious from your blog (and trust me I can tell) that you don't do it for the hits.
I remember in college telling my dad that I wanted to be a writer. He said to me, "Well, don't forget dear, you are easily amused."
I remember thinking, "yeah but isn't that the point?"
Keep amusing yourself and they will come. Then they'll sleep on the dry spot, and you'll wake up alone... It's so unfair....
