I am perplexed.
I began this blog about one year ago. Over the course of the year, I have built a small cult following (or so I imagine it!) and typically somewhere between 75-100 people visit my blog every day.
I have seen occasional spikes in the number of viewers up in the range of 200-250 on a given day, particularly after I have had a radio appearance (and when I did a post about being visited by extraterrestrials!).
Four days ago, however, for no apparent reason, my viewership jumped to 434. The following day, it climbed to 686. The day after that it escalated to 892. And yesterday, it topped one thousand, ending at 1041. Today, at 8:55 a.m. as I write this, it has already reached 233.
The reason I use that expression, is that about 95% or more of these hits are all for one posting – something I wrote on December 15, 2008. The entry was entitled, The REAL Reason for the Season and it focused on the pagan origins of many Christian Christmas traditions.
But why this sudden attraction and attention to this posting? Why now? Why this entry?
I invite you to read the original entry (the link is above) and then submit your hypotheses regarding this flurry of interest.
Not that I’m complaining, mind you. I’m hoping many of these viewers will become regular readers of The Former Fundie.
