Because you don’t do that. You’re about the work. Nothing else. You’re not looking for feedback. It’s not about that. No-o.
But I’m glad I did look at the stats page this morning and examine it in detail, because something caught my eye.
If you scroll way down you can see the terms people have put in google to search for your blog. You get all sorts of weird things. It’s fascinating to see the ways people have arrived at your blog. Not that you notice. Because you’re not looking. No-o.
But today when I looked, one of the keyword searches was this:
Now, I know I wrote a post last week called ‘I love you so much I wanna Bash you’ but I couldn’t help but feel a reader was sending me a personal message. It made me giggle my head off.
I wanna bash you rabbit.
It’s true, The Love and I have been watching the conspiracy series Rubicon until the early hours of the morning, and I’m completely enthralled by the Wikileaks scandal (go Julian, go World), so everywhere I look all I see is Signs. Did the dude know I would be looking at my stats page today (because I don’t every day, no-o, no sir, I don’t, do I The Love, no-o…) and feel this was a clever, cryptic way to tell me his/her feelings?
Honestly, I could understand the desire to bash me. Particularly this week, after reading back over my posts. Some of the things I’ve written lately are definitely far-fetched and over-exaggerated and offensive and silly. Some make me even make me want to bash myself. If I was a basher and a googler and cryptically inclined, and had read some of my recent posts, I would probably find a clever way to communicate my disapproval.
Perhaps I’m being paranoid. Reading too much into it like Anonymous said about my in-depth examination of Algy and the Bear. I'm sure that's probably the case. Maybe someone in a bar said ‘Hey – you should read this post a Bunny wrote. Just google ‘I love you so much I wanna Bash you,’’ and the dude had a few too many and ended up going home and drink-and-googling.
Anyway, in the interests of free speech, etc, I’m leaking the information here for you to decide for yourself.
And no matter what, I’ll try and write better next week.
