I enjoy using my Sitemeter to see who's been visiting my blog. I could fix it so nobody could see the information except me, but what the heck. I don't care if you click on it and come to the sad realization that at least half my hits come from people who stumbled in here looking for porn by way of Google.com, and that most of them stay for zero seconds when they realize they had better re-word their search.
They make my hit count look good, so who am I to complain? I tell myself that lots of people are reading this through Bloglines, so their visits don't even show up on the counter (that's how I read all my favorite blogs, unless I want to comment). It probably all evens out.
Yesterday I noticed someone had come here by way of Blogshares, something I had never before heard of. So of course I went there to check it out.
Hmmm, a fantasy blog share market. The best I can discern, you pretend to own shares in a blog, I think. And you can sell your shares. The value can go up and down.
Well, in the first place, I'm surprised that anyone would invest in this blog, even in their fantasies. Come on, this isn't Pioneer Woman. But then I realize that the shares to this humble abode probably sell at a very low price, rather like penny stocks.
That's me, the poor man's index fund.
I don't think I want to know what's happening with the shares to my blog.
