Welcome newcomers

For reasons that I can't discover my traffic is improving. I have always known that my views are too marginal, my interests too eclectic to attract many readers. But thanks in part to those very qualities my traffic seems to be overwhelmingly the result of internet searches more than regular readers. This doesn't particularly bother me, although I really enjoy reading comments. I am flattered to imagine that there could be more than a handful of regular subscribers. Looking at the stats is always interesting. I notice this morning there are three readers in the little indicator box, and when I check recent entry page popularity, this is what I get:

Imagine that! The toilet brush and white trash posts are geting more traffic than what I consider some of my more important subjects. If past history is any indication, subscribers usually go away after a short time, all except for one, who I expect is someone who either knows of me personally from some other setting, or has simply forgot to edit his or her aggregator.
Go figure.
But whatever...Welcome to Hoots' Place. whoever you are.

(Note: for some reason the links don't work from this post. I tried. I guess I messed up the links when I made the post, but you get the idea. They are all real and the people looking for them got where they were going. Curiosity-seekers can do a Google site-search and find whatever they want. Cheers. Hoots.)
