Writing Life: Booming Stats

WordPress notifies me when my stats are booming, and I can usually figure out what’s happening. Yesterday when I woke up I had 76 page views — a little light. Within 2 hours I had 196 page views. By day’s end the page views topped out at 331 — a good bit over my normal 200, give or take. Yes, that qualifies as “booming stats”. What caused the spike? Someone found my Fremont Solstice Parade naked biker pictures, and took time to look at them all.

I haven’t actually gone to the Solstice Parade in a couple of years. To get a spot good enough to take pictures you have to go by about 10am, and the parade doesn’t start until early afternoon. There are lots of great things to do here in Seattle in June, and standing around for a couple of hours in clouds of pot smoke awaiting the parade has fallen in my list of top choices. But the old pics are still up there, and apparently as interesting as they ever were. šŸ™‚

  1. for Katie: Will think about it next year. Maybe you and Ron should come out again and join the fun. šŸ™‚ As observers, of course — although it isn’t only young people who paint and ride.
