The Internet is such a strange place. I happened to click on my blogger stats tab today, and I've had 12 page views this week, of a blog entry I wrote over four years ago in June of 2006. The title of the blog was "Looking Without Seeing".
What could have triggered that? The views came from Asia, Europe, and the U.S. I just find it fascinating.
When I Googled the phrase Looking without seeing, my blog entry came up number four, but when I went to Yahoo and searched the same term, it didn't appear until the fourth page (about the 40th entry). I didn't rate at all with Dogpile which I actually consider a blessing.
So, what's it all about Alfie? I haven't a clue. I think it's all magic.

  1. I love that new stats feature. :) Not that it really matters to me, but it is fascinating. I wrote a post about a speech I gave a few months ago and it still gets hit almost every day. Google's web crawler is pretty amazing in how it gives out information.

    I agree it is pretty magical to find people on the web from around the world that have written about something I want to read about, and that it brings them to me as well.

    Happy weekend, friend! (PS I posted pix of your pine cones on the design blog so you can see what I did with them.)
