THE LAST DITCH An Englishman returned after twenty years abroad blogs about liberty in Britain
Toleration -vs- Approval
The costs of blogging?

So far, so good

I rather frightened myself in the discussions on my last post with the thought that my blog might, thanks to Google, become associated with its odious subject matter. According to my stats package however, it seems (at least not yet) to be the case. Here are the searches that brought people to The Last Ditch yesterday.

I can happily live with being associated with Socrates, Thatcher and Paine. I have no idea why "what to do to get ready to dance" should bring someone here. My terpsichorean talents are noteable only by their absence. I am delighted that anyone should have come to me looking for an "example of justice." I only hope he found it. It's a long time since I was in Wellingborough, but I find no shame (only puzzlement) in being associated with that fine town.

Do my fellow bloggers worry about the concepts with which Google may associate them? I hate memes, so please don't take this as one. However, I would be interested to hear your thoughts, whether in comments or on your own blogs.

...Britain's political bloggers are, above all, a living rebuke to Britain's journalists. Perhaps that's why they hate us?...

Yes indeed. But the offer intrigues me. I've never received one whisper from anywhere in the MSM - perhaps that's because of my stance.

Congratulations, Tom, on your place in the Top 100 as well - it's just a little recognition of your true place as a top blogger.

Well, I was there yesterday and I didn't use any of those terms. I jumped from a link I use all the time.

I suspect all is not right in the data.
