I hadn’t done it in a while . . . I hadn’t looked at my stats for a while. It turns out I just ticked over on 1,200 subscribers. Just twenty-one more and I’ll claim a palindromic following.
To be honest, my daily visitors are about what they’ve been for the last few years; between ten and twenty. I suppose if I were a more focused blogger I might be able to build a real following. What? Yeah, the 1,200 are not exactly real. Many subscribed and stopped visiting moons ago. Many don’t even have blogs anymore. Also, I get a lot of people subscribing because they have a business. They will like four or five random posts within the span of a minute and then subscribe.
It makes it look like they are interested and then — I presume they hope I will check out their blogs/storefronts. What they don’t know is that if you randomly pick one of my 1,766 posts, you’re likely to land on something that takes a bit of effort (time) to read.
Those are at least somewhat interesting because of the photos. I mean, there are photos in THIS post, but also a lot of talk about photography.
Oh, OK, my travel stuff does very well, too. What is generally ignored is my fiction followed in quick succession by my opinion pieces. I won’t even bother linking any here.
Why this post? Well, there are some new readers, and I’m too distracted right now to do a proper post, so I thought I would throw some links together and sprinkle them with some words aimed at establishing some kind of rapport, and voilà, instant post.
All I need is a photo or two to anchor it . . . Something that’s I may not have shown before . . .
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.

. . . my FP ward . . . chieken shit.
Finally, if you interpret anything on this blog as me asking or wanting pity, sympathy, or complaining about my life, or asking for help and advice, know you’re likely missing my subtle mix of irony, sarcasm, and humor.
