The Prometheus post just overtook my grammar potpourri post last night, so it's now the most page views I've ever gotten on a single post. This is cool, but it has some implications.
In general I've watched my page views creeping up. Nothing has gone viral or anything, but I now wake up to more page views than I used to get all day. And even though I'm going to get fewer page views this month than last, that's because I stopped posting something every day, and started taking weekends off. In terms of views-per-post, I'm still crawling upward. Each time I get more views, I kind of start taking the whole blog project more seriously. So a bellwether like "most hits for a single entry" kind of has the effect of 80's power chords in terms of motivation. Somewhere between validation of the past and responsibility to the future, I feel a second wind to step up my efforts. I know my "A game" is probably going to take more than triple digit page views and a hundred dollars a year to coax out, but I do kind of get inspired to take it up a notch.
I need to:
-Kick off the last few reliquary topics I've been thinking about adding
-Finish the Glossary
-Get more than two or three products on the resources review
-Flesh out the "lists" that are only two or three things long.
-Stop getting distracted by summer and actually write out ahead of myself so I can be better about proofing and stuff
-Clean up my short fiction and put some of it up here
-Stop talking about it
