Well, figures do figure. They make you happier. The mind feels it has got what it seeks. Figures, despite what they may still be hiding, reveal a lot… enough to titillate the mind into working harder to get fairer figures. So yes, figures figure.
‘Are you planning to write about Kareena now?’ asked Specky, with a smile that revealed curiosity.
I said, ‘No. This one isn’t about Kareena at all. This post is all about my blog.’
I showed her the jpegs that I had snipped to be included in the post. The images were all about the statistical analysis of passey dot info, my blog and website. And seeing my rather bouncy smile, Specky asked, ‘My guess is that the figures are more sensual that the figures I thought you were thinking about!’
‘They are,’ I said, and added, ‘My blog has around 30,000 page views every month and imagine how foolish I feel about telling everyone I met that my blog has around 10,000 views.’
She said, ‘This figure does sound good. But then I hardly know anything about page views and rankings.’
I told her that rankings, page views, and unique visitors to a website were the things that the SEO guys always talked about. They also talked about Alexa rankings and Google page rank… but then it is all mumbo-jumbo for me. All that matters to me is the happiness to know that there are people visiting my blog and reading what I write.
‘By the way, did I tell you that one of these site monitoring engines have declared that I have more than 96,000 pages viewed in a month and more than 60,000 people have come to view what is there on the pages!’ I was obviously excited at all these numbers that these techie sites flung at me. I shouted, ‘Specky, one even said that my blog’s estimated worth is more than $20,000. Phew! I am actually a bit breathless.’
Specky handed me my inhaler and said, ‘Stop being breathless for figures now… you really need to exercise some restraint at your age!’
Well… I loved the figures and don’t think the figures that fascinated me were concocted because the jpegs are all included in this post!
