Two months of the «Daily Post Challenge» are over and done with. Inspired by some comment I read in the WP-site last night, I took a peek at the statistics.
For the month of February, this blog has had 1,077 hits. That meant an average of 38 per day. These numbers don’t mean much to me … they are just that — numbers. Were I to have a business, it would be a whole different story, I guess.
Still, it’s intriguing. Those 1,077 … who were they? What did they think? How come they ended up here in the first place? They weren’t searching for Kattsby, that’s for sure … that isn’t even a real word or name — it’s made up by me.
Imagine, if they’d all had left a comment … how extremely cool that would have been 🙂 What it all boils down to is me, myself … if I were to write something interesting, perhaps they’d feel inclined to comment.
I have 58 posts in the Daily Post category. There are a few extra ones, thanks to the weekly photo. As often as I can, I browse blogs that are taking part in this and that’s also a fun part of it all.
Many years ago, online, I found a quote that somehow ‘hit home’ with me. It was by H.L. Mencken … I didn’t know him from a hole in the wall, but I copied it down and saved it in my notes. I’m not much into quotations, but I have four or five stored away, that have really meant something to me. Yesterday, as I was browsing blogs rather aimlessly, I came across a post about this very quotation! This is the first time I’ve come across it since I read it initially! She had lots of comments on it … it had turned out to be like a discussion and it was really great.
I’ll post it here too — if, for nothing else, so for my own reference.
Penetrating so many secrets,
we cease to believe in the unknowable.
But there it sits nevertheless,
calmly licking its chops.
H.L. Mencken (1880 – 1956)
