I Love A Good Chart, Don't You?

I try not to be a hit whore, really I do. I check my stats every so often, primarily to see where in the world people are visiting from (Riyadh, Johannesburg and other exotic places). It's always interesting though to look at the number of visits, and the number of page views, that this blog is getting.

Visits over the past year:


March is looking like a good month, given that there is still a week to go. But heck, what about that November, huh? I'm just a shadow of the person I was in November.

Visits and page views (aptly, in pink) over the past year:


Again, how wonderful things were in November. You all just loved me sick in November, didn't you? I was so entertaining, so wonderful. Oh, and what a crushing disappointment I was to you in December and January. But, we've been through a lot together. You gave me a second chance, one that I possibly don't deserve, but you gave it to me because you're better than that, aren't you? You have it in your heart to forgive, to say "sure, I was disappointed, but let's just move on from that".

For that I love you, I really do.

Might I use this time to express my sincere 'thanks' for finding MY blog. I believe you linked my 'fuck christmas' post and the rest is history. I thought--at the time, if someone can put up with the worst side..then surely they'll hang around for the good stuff. And you have. And I am appreciative, Andrew.

BTW: I didn't masturbate as much in November, hence...leaving more time to hit your blog. ahem.

The Other Andrew said...

You're welcome Michael. In a universe of funny bitches, you're are undoubtably one of the funniest! My Gawd but your blog cracks me up.

Speaking of masturbating, since you started posting pics of yourself (and that hairy chest!) I'll have to hang around your blog even more.

MWAH!

December ... December ...

Oh yeah, thats when I first took my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder medication. Sorry about that.

Stats going up again, huh? Damn, I may need to up my meds.

;-)

Hey everyone im going to Byron Bay this weekend Friday to Sunday. Going to a chalet with a loft. Seeking some solitude overlooking the hinterland to the ocean and the sunset :) Hopefully a new beginning for me 'if you cant be with the one you love then love the one you're with'. I actually feel like im going to miss you - kisses xxx

The Other Andrew said...

Have a great time 60s Girl!

Mikey (The Lovely Ex) said...

Well, aren't you Mister Popularity! ;-)
All well deserved of course. BTW, Linda and Bad Boy saw Madama Butterfly last night. They said it was tres excellente! They both cried buckets.

The Other Andrew said...

I've processed my grief at having to miss Madama Butterfly, and I have moved on. :(

Q - 60's girl said...

Thanks TOA, you are so the mother ship
:) watching over the brood. I wasnt going to jump back on this morning but your blog is so addictive. YOU ARE my only blog...somebody kick me out of this house and into my car to drive to Byron. Im going to swim and play till 2:00 and then its up the hills to the chalet. There is a spa on the verandah with a positively panoramic view. How much fun would it be if we could all go, oh yeah ;0

morgan said...

Ooh, you're big! Makes a change from the usual gayboy stats :)

Can't imagine crying at Madama Butterly, though. Operas are always too unreal, for me. Given the typical operatic plot, that must be a good thing.

The Other Andrew said...

Morgan, I cried the first time I saw Madama Butterfly. My then boyfriend Jon bought me 5th row centre seats as a birthday surprise. I can cry at tv commercials, so opera is no big ask for me!

BTW, I'm massive.

Mikey (The Lovely Ex) said...

I can vouch for TOA's disproportionate "assets" in an otherwise compact package. I cry at Madama Butterfly's death aria every time (of course the Callas version). It's on high rotation on my iPod. I agree with Morgan that it's all terribly unreal, but "what about the drama".... Haha!

morgan said...

A couple of tracks by Antony and the Johnsons get to me, and Antony is just extraordinary, live.

I seem to be, um, smaller, but a grower, btw.

The Other Andrew said...

Mikey, thanks for the good PR!

Opera often moves me. There's something about a big fat 45 year old woman singing about how sad it is to be 16 year old virgin that I always find incredibly touching...

Morgan, wow you are indeed a grower! :) In a short space of time too, might I add. I love that.

morgan said...

So what's the browsing orientation of your visitors?

Mine seem surprisingly perverse - more Firefox/Mozilla users than Internet Explorer users.

The Other Andrew said...

I've never looked, because hello that's borderline technical, but just checked. 55% IE 6 and 33% Firefox.

The real stats that I want; who has great hair, who has a trust fund, who's parents are away for the weekend, who likes to sing along "Sing It Back" by Moloko, are all sadly not recorded.

morgan said...

Oops. My geekiness showed through there for a moment. Sorry about that (blush)

The Other Andrew said...

No problem, I understand how these things can creep in. :)

worldpeace and a speedboat said...

sorry TOA, and Q60girl but at the moment I'd like to claim being the mother ship ;)


music and/or live performance can get you moved to tears, either of joy or sadness. it's the immediacy of the performance, of it being live and in your face. of course a recorded performance can do it too but live... doesn't it always hit a deeper nerve?

amy said...

yowza, you are blog royalty

Q - 60's girl said...

Yes worldpeace, a deeper nerve i think so - especially live
