So, i just checked out the weekly hit counter for the first time in a while and found something fairly disturbing. Especially if you’re Steve and Carin who used to be running a pretty successful place here.
You’ll recall when I returned this summer I swore, half jokingly, that I would manage to drive the readership away and crush any success Steve and Carin had built. A few weeks later I showed some stats that, at the time, were comical that showed I may have been succeeding.
Well, unforunately for my self-respect, this was not a blip on the radar but a resounding comment on my appeal. lol. Please take note of the, somewhat noticeable, trend that has developed over the last 13 weeks since I’ve come back.
It’s not funny anymore. I was amused after 2 or 3 weeks when it seemed like a strange co-incidence and I could joke about it. But after 12 weeks of this, it becomes a little depressing.
I mean look at some of those weekly drops. It’s hard to believe that Steve ate ALL of them… some of them are lagitimately choosing to not come back.
It’s a sad day. Hopefully America’s new President can set this downward trend in the economy and our site readership back on the right path.
