WordPress provides a way for the owner of a blog to check its “stats.” Of greatest interest to me over all these months has been the number of “hits,” or visitors, this blog gets each day. Since each of our computers has a unique address, it only counts your visits here once each day (and it doesn’t count mine at all). On a daily basis, then, there are between 50 and 100 people looking at this blog. For instance, yesterday the blog drew 87 visitors. Are that many people interested in lentils?
This begs a question. Just who are you anyway?
Don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that dozens of people are coming by each day. It’s why I decided to keep writing after having returned from France. But I am very curious who you are, and therefore have a favor to ask.
Tell me who you are. Do so by leaving a comment, okay? Just click on the “comments” link in the lower right of this post and tell me. If you want to remain anonymous, just say something anonymous-like.
By the way, today’s picture is another old one, a self-portrait taken inside the largest cathedral in Nantes. As a connection to today, I wore that same striped shirt today that I’m wearing in this picture. But I chose the picture because it seemed to go well with the question, “Who reads this blog??”
