I try to limit my spam to spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, baked beans, and spam. I would never try to substitute spam instead of the baked beans.
Random Viking: "Yeah. That's just too much spam."
This "Monday" article may go up on Tuesday...or possibly even Wednesday. It depends on how awesome the new Cars thing is at California Adventure, I think. Ima is going to write it over the weekend but Unsupportive Girlfriend is taking me to Disneyland for her birthday, and it is entirely possible that she may say "We could go back to the hotel and you could write, or we could go on Star Tours ONE MORE TIME and see if we get that last end segment that we haven't seen yet. And my nerd eyes will gleam, and I will remember why I love her. And we will get in line.
Then, after three days, I will realize I haven't even phoned it in with W.A.W. and I. Lister's article is sitting on my desk waiting to be published, and I suck for being on the Dumbo ride when a thirty second phone call to Cedric would have fixed things. But yeah, if you don't see me for a few days, it's because I'm spending three times as much to eat food next to a giant anthropomorphized mouse in a monarchy that is sufficiently advanced with its technology as to appear magic to the layman.
Feb Report: February was not as spectacular as January or December in terms of numbers. In the end I made a total pageviews much closer to last November.
|Feb: 17,000 pageviews.|
But actually that number is really not too bad. February is a shorter month by 10%, I took a long weekend during the convention, and I've been much better this month about at least taking one day off from W.A.W.
|$1500 for a TOSHIBA?|
I should have worn my jetpack.
So that's why I'm insisting through this haze of tears that everything is fine and it's really okay that I made fewer pageviews.
But on the opposite end of the TOTES AWESOME YO scale, Writing About Writing hit 100,000 page views this month.
Expect a new piece of fiction early in the month. (It was going to be Feb, but I got pretty busy.) I'm also playing Skyrim as time permits so I'm hoping to get to part III of that review. I want to put another craft element essay up so I can pair it with some different writing prompts. A couple more parts of It's Really Okay Not to Write. Really. And I plan on hitting at least a couple more letters on the glossary. I'm planning on doing the W.A.W. Staff portion of the tabs up top, as it is currently under construction.
Plus, there are new guest bloggers to introduce. Leela Bruce found us a trio of sisters named Pointer who like to find things on the web that don't necessarily relate to writing, and bridge their wisdom with writing wisdom. They will kick off their new segment next Friday.
All that, plus our usual shenanigans coming up for March, so lots to look forward to.
