Lack of Traffic

My hits are way down. It's not surprising nor disturbing. Just interesting. Back in the days when I was running a full-on Laser Olympic Campaign, people flocked to this website. In fact, that may have won me my unprecedented third straight Tillie.

Now, my sailing life just isn't exciting. All I'm doing is getting ready to sail to Hawaii. Nobody seems to care about that. Just two weeks of wonderful downwind sailing where I've promised to blog my heart out to my last dozen faithful readers.

I've got to spice this thing up. And I think I know just the ticket. Knots.

If I can spend five to six posts detailing my quest for the perfect "triple double dragon" my readership is going to soar! You don't know what a "triple double dragon" is?

It's knowledge like this that's going to have you coming back for more, believe you me.

So how bad is it? Averaging 10, 20, 30 a day??

Just so you know I'm pnly in the 20's most days... plus around 20 RSS subscriptions.

Maybe all your readers have gon RSS-mad? Fo you track those subscribers?

Any-how, I'm still hear, keep writing, they'll come back..soon-ish.

Love the display of number of sailing days in signal flags. Very nautical of you.

I've already decided to cheat if I ever get to the point where I need repeater flags. I don't really get how those work.

maybe folks are in the boatyard. Or sailing.

Us loyal ones only matter the rest are squals on the ocean.

You get up the mast yet? I'm waiting for the I-went-up-the-mast post!

Bonnie, are you saying that I actually have to do something to make this blog worth reading? Ouch, that hurts.

tillerman said...

No Edward, please don't actually do anything on a boat. I've long since discovered that when I write about actual sailing on my blog nobody is really interested. But if I write about something awful I ate for lunch or make up some church signs, then the traffic stats go through the roof.

It's one of the paradoxes of the blogging world. Maybe Zen could explain it.

Traffic Shmaffic...let's talk knots.

Here is a useful and fun site that animates the tieing of a heap of rope.
