What Blogger/Blogspot Stats tell me about you.

I've discussed this before in the comments section of several posts, but I think it deserves its own post. When I click the stats link I am greeted with an overview that includes page views, posts, traffic sources, and audience in the form of a world map. Clicking the links brings up a page dedicated to each subject and then some.

Nothing too surprising here. The usual suspects are on top of course. For some reason that rant about yuri anime has been popping up for some reason. This topic is the most important of all. It tells me what brings people in. That's why on my personal blog I spent so much time talking about Rosenkreuzstilette, Rosario Vampire, and Discworld Noir instead of Oh My Goddess and Inukami.

This is very important for me as someone that designs his own web sites. You see each browser handles HTML, CSS, and JS in different ways. I have to program based on what people coming to my sites are using. Of course Google does all the coding for me here. Thank goodness.

Interesting if you have some desire to see what operating systems visitors are using. Really not at all useful.

Again only useful if you have some morbid curiosity about what countries people are calling in from. It does confirm that on my personal blog most people come in from England, France, and sometimes Germany to read about the werewolf private detective. Here on this blog the number of visits to Yuru Yuri and other anime related posts tend to match up with the number of visits from Japan.
Thanks to a yuri doujinshi site for the flag counter.

Fun fact: for the past eight years I had a “mysterious” follower on my personal blog. As soon as I mentioned these stats in a comment, that follower disappeared.

I'm Still Her Fan.

Not too long and fortunately before it was too late I decided I just had to tell someone that she is still has fans and that she is missed. After a couple months of searching I found her. In my usual brain damaged way I got my point across. She said she appreciated my efforts and she would really appreciate it if I would never bother her again. Then she took steps to make sure of that.

I'm not bothered her reaction at all. It's not the first time I've ever seen something like that. Somebody abandons the Net and everything that came with it. Even going so far as to not acknowledge old friends. Remember Joanime? She was a very popular Flash artist and voice actress in the early and mid 2000's. I was perusing my flash videos folder and found a bunch of her stuff I had saved. I decided to check out her site. It was blank and the Internet Archive was blocked. I eventually found a forum run by an old friend of hers and he said he did find Joanime but she summarily blocked him. Something caused her to leave the Net. I don't know what and it's not important. I understand. I mean there are times when I feel my life would be so much easier if I were to flip the switch and turn everything off and just watch YouTube videos.

As to the subject of my fandom, I bare no ill will what-so-ever for being blocked. I do know of some of the bullshit she had to deal with a lifetime ago and my showing up out of the blue the way I did disturbed the peace she was enjoying and probably brought back a lot of bad memories. Then again maybe she doesn't like yuri, fox girls, cemeteries, or lesbian fox girls in cemeteries. I understand I was at fault and should have left well enough alone.

I will continue to wait patiently for the day she decides to come back to the Net. I'm not holding my breath. But, I am biting my tongue. Someday when I flip out and quit I'll leave a parting message detailing all. Then again maybe if the right person calls I might spill all.
