Statistics

I'm intrigued by Blogger's "popular post" feature under the Stats tab.  You can set it to show your most-read posts by the week, month, or all time.  Doesn't matter which timeframe I select, an old post titled "Surprising Hawk Poop" is almost always the most read. Another one that shows up more often than not includes a photo of the scat left behind in a bluebird nest after the fledglings have taken their first flight. I used the term "blobs of you-know-what" in the text of that post.

So, do I take this to mean that all a blog-writer has to do to generate a wider readership is wax on about the extraordinary wonders of bird poop? Such a curious species, homo sapiens. If the future anthropologists of a differently evolved life form from another planet ever study us, I'd love to know what they conclude. dkm

Yay! - the nasty has gone :))) No big red STOP sign.

Well, yes, it's sad that 'poop' garners a greater readership than 'bluebird' - but, what to say...? Maybe a poopseeker will be converted to other avian activities?!!

Oh dear, I wrote that, read it and decided it didn't come out the way I intended...

dkm said...

however you intended it, I liked it ---especially the word poopseeker/:)

Thank goodness th virus warning is gonE, but I'm still taking the forward to my boyfriends at the Mac store. Will let you know what they say.

There is a link here with the hummingbird checking you out .. aliens etc :) The world would die without poop ! hehehee

dkm said...

Ha ha, PG! You must have one extra little gear in your head that the rest of us don't have. Now I'll forever think of hummingbirds as alien anthropologists.

Aye Debs .. my grey cells move in differing directions to most others .. some people 'click' .. and to others .. way over their heads .. ;}

dkm said...

Here's to clicking :-)

Yay I'm here too :)

Poop is good :D

ps If you see lots of hits from Russia on your blog stats, don't click on their sites. They are spam. Don't click on any site that seem unusual.

dkm said...

Thanks for that. I did see hits from Russia and sometimes get unreadable comments and odd requests to advertise but I always delete them.
Can't deny the value of manure in the garden! Rotten and rich!

At least a year before the Lorax movie came out, I posted a photo of a Japanese maple in my neighborhood, and I identified it as a truffula tree. That post has since gotten far and away more hits than any other, mostly from people searching for "real truffula tree."

I should try writing about poop--knock that truffula tree right out of the #1 spot!

dkm said...

I remember that post! It was beautiful! I also remember doing a reality check on myself for wondering at first if there really was a truffula tree:-)

The best thing is that you have acquired it for a reasonably priced price.
