Snow and rainmates


Since installing some site-stats software on my blog, I’ve been able to see how and why people end up at my site: by checking out the stats page, I can see what magical collection of search terms someone put into Google (or whatever search engine) to arrive at a page on my site. Some of the searches are real Googlewhacks, since I write about such arcane stuff most of the time.

But now that I’ve been looking at the stats for a month, it amazes me that in all the five-and-a-half years that I’ve been blogging, the only topic that has consistently caused any interest, if you judge ‘interest’ by people leaving comments, or searching regularly for a particular term, it’s rain-mates, and snow.

Believe it or not, over the last month, someone has visited my site every day to read about rain-mates. I am considering giving up music and becoming a rain-mate importer.
