What people read on blogs

19 March 2010

Every six months or so I have a look at the statistics to see what things people are reading on my blog, and I’m usually quite surprised by what I find. In the past few days there’s been a sudden flurry of interest in something I wrote four months ago, just a passing remark about things on my computer I knew nothing about that were trying to access the internet, one of which was “Google Installer”. Obviously other people are concerned about that too, to judge from the sudden surge in interest.

I can understand the interest in Lent and Lenten Lolcats, because it’s Lent. I’m rather surprised in the interest in “reactive policing” — I wasn’t aware that it was such a hot topic of debate. “Perelandra” surprised me too — that would have taken people to the post on “Gleanings from the Inklings”. I wonder if they found what they were looking for, because none of them seem to have left any comments.
