In checking my site map I learned that there have been 12,287 stops at our little cyber-bar since I bothered to start counting on Jan. 17th. I'm guessing that at least 6,000 of those are me checking in, but even 6,287 isn't a number to be sneezed at.
Most of the world has stopped by a time or two, at least according to the map. To all the people of the world, in whatever language you read this in, I say "Cheers, Salute, and Good Health."
I must admit that the numbers and the map got me to thinking. If even half of this number is me, who are the other 6,287? I would guess that at least 2,000 of those people wandered here by mistake. I did one small post for Paula Abdul's birthday and the numbers went through the roof for a week or so. These were not "regular readers" but someone trolling for comments for their National Inquirer article or some such.
So who reads what I put out there on this majestic World Wide Web?
