Blogger stats

I like to look at my blogger stats.  I'm always surprised when a post, many times several years after I make it, starts to take on a life of its own.  Currently, this post right here for instance is topping the views right now, the views for the day, the views for the week, and it even cracked into the top five views for the month.  A review of a book that I posted years ago.

I suppose Google image search has something to do with it, and I do have a cool old image of Demogorgon from the D&D coloring book (a fixture of my childhood--I used to doodle dragons on my homework for years in elementary school, using techniques more or less learned by imitating the drawing of Tiamat from that book.)

But there it is.  For some odd reason, that post has soared in views.  And this post here easily tops my all-time views.  And curiously, most of those views came in over a one month or six weeks or so period of time, where it suddenly spiked dramatically, and then sank again into obscurity.

I don't get the internet sometimes.

Hopefully, I'll have time to post both a DARK•HERITAGE and an ODD D&D post later today.  But for now, this random thought keeps me in the game.
