Does anyone else besides me go referrer surfing? Since I’m internally vain about some of the things I do (I got excited last week because I got my first credits in not one but two video games — yay!), I set up analog for the system that hosts my blog (as well as moonpuddle’s and syndromes’) and have been running the report once every 6 hours or so.
The only reason I bring this bit of vanity up is because of the tiny emotional roller coaster I went on when I saw www.technorati.com in the referrer logs, and thought “whoa cool, someone I don’t know linked to me!” It turns out that it’s just a blog search engine type thing that spidered the site earlier, probably from one of the other blog indexes I ping when I post; so I was a bit disappointed.
I would like to thank Moonpuddle and Syndromes, both of whom I know, for plugging me on their blogs, however. }:>
(Note that when I go off on vanity tangents like this I’m not expecting or asking anything of anyone; just commenting on my thought processes and how easily I can be amused. All part of trying to figure out how I work.)
(That brings up another point; how easily stuff written down in snippets like this can be taken the wrong way. Some people think that I’m an arrogant prick based on some of the stuff they’ve seen me write; I like to think that I’m not, though, and that they’ve just misinterpreted me. But that’s something for another post, perhaps.)
(I’m done now, I promise.)
