The ‘Blogs I follow’ glitch reported yesterday seems to have been fixed, at least for now. The current list shown is of those I follow, although it doesn’t list them all of course.
Checking back during the evening to see if that had been sorted, I noticed that I was getting those WordPress notifications for lots of views. This sort of thing, with a large arrow graphic.
“Your blog, beetleypete, appears to be getting more traffic than usual!” When I got this message twice in quick succession, I went to the stats page to check. Sure enough, the numbers were very high. In fact, the second highest since starting the blog, in 2012.
I was intrigued, so investigated further. Someone in Indonesia had read more than 200 posts! Of course I was curious, so had a look at their blog, which was in the Indonesian language. Using Google Translate didn’t help that much, to be honest. Overall, I got the impression of a spiritual and religious blog, not really my thing, and nothing at all like this one.
Thinking about it later, I was once again fascinated by this world of Blogging. Someone on the other side of the world, at a totally different time of day, was reading all about my life in Norfolk. As well as Films, Music, dog-walking, and all the other stuff that tumbles from my mind onto the page.
Where else could that ever happen, if not for Blogging?
