I clicked on my profile yesterday to find that there were over 1000 profile viewings listed. 1000! That's a lot of views.
Now, I'd say about 523 of those were me checking to see how many views there had been. And probably about 100 or so would be my blog mate Andy navigating from my comments on his site. But that still leaves over 300 unaccounted for. Who are you guys? Are you coming to the blog? Hello? Is anyone there?
If you've stopped by today, leave a comment to let me know you've been here. Even if it's just to say, "Hello". Or "I'm here". Or "You're a dickwad" or whatever. I don't mind.
The bigger question here, however, is why would I possibly care how many times my profile had been viewed? Really, why? I know I shouldn't. I mean, I didn't start this blog to get a following. And yet, now that the numbers have gone up, I find myself wishing for more. Like I want people to read what I'm writing. Is that totally narcissistic or just self-validation? Or just the human need to communicate. Answers on a postcard please.
Or in the comments section.
