I think it is. Why is a Russian site that appears to have nothing to do with writing directing people to English-language writing blogs? I don't even see links that might be responsible for the traffic. How does that work?

Yep, I just checked. I was getting traffic from them up until a month or so ago. Now it's another site. I haven't looked to see what that one is about.

And what's the connection, if any, to the google.ru searches I keep getting? People are actually viewing the pages rather than just the search result. I confused.

Oh, I also got traffic from that pingweb thingy. I do not comprehend the awesome and mysterious workings of the internets.

About a week ago, one of my older posts got hit by 13 Finns within a minute. Then, a couple days later, it happened again. Same post. Same number of Finns. *shifty eyes*

I also used to see that Russian site in my stats. Don't recall seeing it recently.

Finns? I haven't had Finns yet. I get swarmed by Japanese occasionally. Yesterday it was the French.

I'll trade you 2 Japanese and 5 Frenchmen for 7 Finns, as long as they're in mint condition, NIB.

Can't guarantee their condition. You'll have to take them sight unseen, but I'll throw in a couple of South Americans if you'd like. I've got Venezuela, Chile, Argentina, and an occasional Bolivian.

(Also, congratulations on ONE THOUSAND POSTS, Margo)

Ummm, yeah, you probably ought to be wagging a finger at me about that, huh? How many chapters could I have written in the time it took to post 1000 times? Er, 1001 times. Ewww, gosh, in less than a year. Wow.

That's hilarious. I'm going to venture ahead and say you contribute to the discussions around. :P

Also, I'm kind of disappointed I don't get traffic from weird places. Well, not in masses anyway.

So, because of my recent postings of Garlic and Puppy Love I recently had a review from labradoodlesavvy.com! Definitely the strangest source so far!!!

Okay I have to share the strangest search I've gotten so far. Mind you, my WIP is urban fantasy mixed with Norse mythology. Today, someone found my writing blog while googling "odin wolf porn".

Well...that's a niche market if there ever was one.

Here's the thing - I was boppin' around Beale Street last week, and for the first time in I don't know how long, I stopped to listen to one of the street musicians. Jake Lear, is his name, and he plays the Blues. I bought his CDs and asked if it would be cool to upload some of it to my blog. Of course, he encouraged me to do so. Here's the question - is there a gadget I should use to upload audio files from my hard drive?

There's a lot of websites you can use to share media from, like rapid share and media fire, but I have my own website I pay for (because it's cheaper in the long run to have a place to store things like pictures and music files...).
I'm on Tumblr!

The blog died...but so did I...and now I'm alive again! OMG.
