Blogging the night away

Leave a comment


I should be writing, but that seems to have stopped, so now I’m wasting time with a phone camera and the editing software update that just came to my MacBook Pro.  I think I still need more practice.  With both.  Or maybe all three.

Or maybe I just haven’t had enough Pepsi yet.

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Search engine ups and downs

Checking the stats for the site is part of the fun of having one’s own blog.  Recently, something in the mystical world of Internet algorithms had conspired to make search engines put a particular picture from my site, and hence it’s related blog post, near the top of the returns when the term “vacation” was entered.  That drove a lot of hits here, and my counters were getting a bit of a workout.

Well, it appears that conspiracy has ended.  As of a few days ago, the traffic directed here dropped suddenly, and the search term “vacation” hasn’t been showing up in the stats page with anywhere near the frequency of the past few months.  It looks like we’re back to the only visitors being those who are actually interested in my blogging!

Of course, this means I’ll have to work on my postings, both in frequency and content, to see if I can bring the numbers back up to the levels to which I had become accustomed!

Vacation, day 4

This is a bit embarrassing.  I’ve been telling myself I should get up a bit earlier each day, and get some work done.

Instead, I’ve been lounging in bed later and later, and blogging and Facebooking and Twittering.


Let’s do some testing!

Ok, so this is a test post, from my handy-dandy iPhone machine.

My previous post did something interesting.

After I posted it, but before going to the page, WordPress sent me this little message:

This is your 520th post. Hip! This post has 911 words.

911 words. On 9/11.  I doubt I could deliberately do that if I tried!
