Watching my website stats is an addiction akin to watching water boil. I stare at my monitor, refreshing the page every few minutes. I feel high as I watch my page take hits from the Internet bong.
Increasing page hits, returning visitors, length of stay – these are intoxicating stats.
The thing about being a writer is that if my website, available for the entire intertube galaxy, touches only one life, puts a smile on only one face, or makes the difference for only one reader, then obviously my blog sucks!
