In the interest of self interest, I thought I'd take a look at the "Stats" that have been run up here over the past few years.
All Time page views: 6,138 (673 last month)
Most Viewed Posts:
Two of my earliest posts ever, have the most views. Also, I've found that "Top 10" and "Top 5" lists are popular.
Glad to see 177 views of my "Saying Goodbye to Seau" post. That was a hard one to write for me.
Top "Search Keywords" that have led people to my blog:
So, Oklahoma City Thunder Head Coach Scott Brooks is number 1, and by a long way. Which is strange because I think I've only written about him one time. Also love the "ugly browns fans" search.
The Audience of this blog:
So mostly Americans, which is understandable, because I'm American and my facebook and twitter followers are American. Surprising to see Russia in 2nd on this list. Again, Welcome Comrades!

As you can see from the picture below, the attention being paid to the blog appears to continue to grow.
As to why I started this blog... I'm not really sure. I just felt like I had some opinions on things, and wanted to put them out there. I'm not whining or anything, but I don't really have a lot of close friends, and many of those live quite a ways away.
It was just a way for me to communicate my thoughts, originally on sports, but then amended to include Television, Movies, Music, and whatever else I find interesting.
It's still mostly about sports. April being the (former) home of the NFL draft, and my live blogging of it the past year was certainly the reason that last month had the most views.
What does all this mean? Nothing much. I'm just a guy with a keyboard, who likes sports and popular culture.
Thanks for reading this. If you're a regular visitor to the blog...feel free to sign up to be a "follower". I only have 5! Maybe someone with 100 posts and only 5 followers should "wise up" and stop "wasting his time" by typing a bunch of worthless drivel. But I'm not going to.
Tell some friends, spread the word... I bet we could double the number of followers in a Month!
(that's a little joke, I know... I'm not funny)
Thanks again. We'll see you in the funny papers.
