When I started doing my incredibly successful webcast/podcast, I was telling Mrs Spike that the software I use for the live show has a little "statistic relay" window that shows me, in real time, how many people are listening. I can see exactly how many people are there, when they drop off (or log on to) the stream with a handy wee graph. This is how the conversation went:
Mrs Spike: Disconnect it.
Mrs Spike: The statistical relay.
Mrs Spike: Because you'll just get obsessed and angry when you don't get the results you want.
me: I won't! I'm a professional!
Suffice it to say, she was right - every time the audience dips, even by one, a part of me inside gets red hot. But anyhoo, I decided to check the stats for this blog site. Since my podcast is one of the most ignored in the history of the internet but, remarkably, this blog pulls in some bizarrely high numbers, I thought I'd see what brings people here...
Y'all are weird.
As you can see, just one of those terms includes my name and none about anything I've mentioned in a year or more. So... thanks!
Now for gawd's sake, go listen to the Spike Nesmith Rage Machine podcast. And tell a friend.
