I don't go in much for statporn here. Goodness knows it would be unstimulating stuff compared to the big boys at the top of the blog charts. I dropped out of the ebuzzing blog charts during my American trip because - presumably - my happy burblings didn't trigger comments, links, tweets and all the other things their algorithms measure.
My ego is not much engaged in that, but it's always good to know that my efforts here are read and appreciated.
Thank you to all who commented, linked and tweeted to such effect.
