What has been more difficult than posting has been coping with a new feature on the new look that has taken the tatters of my self-esteem and run them through the office shredder. I speak of a little number called "view count" with the graph /envelope icon to its right, which records how many people have viewed a particular post.
|For Illustrative Purposes Only. Halevai I Should get These View Counts!|
As if my stat counter numbers of page loads and returning visitors were not pathetic enough I now have to contend with even more anemic numbers letting me know that posts that I have slaved on for hours have, on average, been viewed by less than a minyan . What is even more sobering is that these "views" are counted even if they lasted only a few seconds. Bottom line is this whole Red-Tent Blog is arguably the most pathetic exercise in self-flagellation in the history of the J-Blogosphere. If not for the rare traffic that comes my way when Rafi decides to link a post this would be an island inhabited by around 4 people.
Come to think of it it's not the blog that is pathetic...it's the blogger.
