Since I've started this blog Thursdays have always been a high traffic day. Keep in mind high traffic here means 50 to 60 people stop by. My average is more like 35. I'm grateful and delighted with each and every guest too. I'm far from worrying about being high profile (yikes!) or about increasing traffic, but I do like to have people stop by. Discussion and interaction are part of the reason I started ye old blog in the first place. That and sharing my opinion that NOBODY ASKED ME about.
Any way, each week when I peek at my stats I see that Thursday is still the champ and wonder why. I also vow each Sunday evening when I tend to look at stat stuff, that this week will be the week that I remember all those people are going to be visiting and I need to wipe down the baseboards, change the bathroom towels, and clean the hall bathroom. Which is Rosie-speak for write and be brilliant dahling, be brilliant.
If one were so inclined, and believe me it's not worth it, and looked back at my posting history there are many Thursdays that I've obviously forgotten all about being brilliant. In fact there's many a Thursday that I've written nothing at all. So why so many visitors? Honestly, I really don't know. All I can be sure of is that it doesn't have any correlation to my writing or content.
So, huh, why Thursdays then? My theory goes something like this. Fridays people are distracted with the end of the week and weekend plans. Saturday and Sunday are the weekend and if you look at a blog it's only your favorites and not for long. You're busy with real life and have weekend type stuff to do. Mondays are...well, Monday. Back to work, and whose interested in really blog hopping when it's only the beginning of a long work week? Tuesdays, you are getting back into the swing of things. Wednesdays you catch up on blog hopping and write a review or post. Which means on Thursday you are caught up and reading people's blogs before the weekend comes again.
Reasonable, don't you think? Works for me anyway. I had to come up with something. Otherwise I have to keep wondering about stuff like this when I'm stuck at a red light. Oh, and still not brilliant either. Who knows, there's always next Thursday and a bolt of inspiration could strike at any time.
BTW, my reading is still crawling along. If I could just squeeze a couple more hours into the day...
