Wow! I guess I can’t be surprised that I get so few daily independent views.

This is the first time I have posted about this stat. This blog will cross the 80,000 independent viewer hit mark today. That’s the stat since I started the blog in late 2005 or about 4 years ago. I’m no A-level blogger but I am amazed that my modest efforts here have gotten that much attention in the blogosphere.

I credit for most of this activity. I have tried two other blogging platforms, Live Space and Typepad, and got very little exposure with them. I heartily recommend

Thx to all those 80,000 hitters!

I consider my purpose here.

For one thing it is a place where I record all the interesting stuff (text and images) that I run across in my web space wandering. Some times I even add my critical thoughts about some of these accretions. Probably this is in line with thoughts of Nicholas Carr, as in:

Bloggers do similarly useful work. In fact, the blogosphere may best be thought of as a vast digestive tract, breaking down the news of the day into ever finer particles of meaning (and ever more concentrated toxins).

It’s worth remembering that, in a literary context, another word for “parasitic” is “critical”. Blogging is, at its essence, a critical form, a means of recycling other writings to ensure that every molecule of sense, whether real or imagined, is distilled and consumed.

So if someone wants to call my blog parasitic, or even bacterial, that’s fine with me. I’ll consider it not an insult, but a compliment.

Whatever it is I do or not here, it is an electronic collection point among millions of others in the BlogSpace.
