This venerated blog reached 25,000 hits today.
Most of those are actually hits, I think, rather than referral spam. Google seems to have done a great job of stripping most of that stuff out in the last few months.
A huge fraction of those hits are generated automatically by blogs by lovely people who have put me on their auto-updating blogroll.
A bunch the hits are most certainly spiders for web search engines and other such ilk.
A decent number are traffic from Google’s error in indexing a picture from this blog as the first hit for a kind of fetish wear. I won’t repeat it here for fear of attracting more traffic that is disappointing for everyone involved. (Imagine you clicked a link expecting to see fetish wear and got a Sims video game blog?!)
But some of them are people who read actual posts!
Thanks, all of you actual people who read actual posts.
