Man, it’s sad to peak in your second month of blogging. For the second straight month, my visits are down:

At least I haven’t fallen off as much as this poor sap:

Man, he must be hatin’ life, huh?

    Yeah, my visits per month have gone down too. Although, I ‘m getting more and more regular visitors, which is a plus. Also, somebody in Iran reads my blog. You just can’t beat that.

    But I’d bet that if I enabled commenting I’d get more stickiness. That or post a picture. ;-P

    And all because I’ve been siphoning away his traffic. Guess I’m in trouble if he figures that out…

    See– if you were a dyed in the wool liberal, it would be Bush’s fault.

    Your hits fell after the war… Bush caused the war…


    It is all Bush’s fault. 😉

    I promise to visit your site 15,000 times this weekend. …or at least I’ll try.

    Maybe it has something to do with summer. People are not cooped up inside as much. I wonder if those who’ve been blogging longer than a year can answer that question.

    Of course, the absence of war also contributes.

    John: Thanks! Just 5,000 or so would be adequate. No sense straining yourself.

    Paul and Bryan: I’m pretty sure the war is about 90% of it. Plus, I had three InstaLanches in about a week in March; Glenn must not love me no more.
