I have written this blog since May 2010 and I have a rough idea how the hits on it work.
On the day I post a blog, it gets big hits.
Slightly less hits the next day.
By the third day, the hits have pretty much stopped.
After that, pretty much – nothing.
Only rare, sporadic hits.
So I find it interesting that, almost every day, one particular blog I wrote pretty much two years ago – on 15th January 2015 – is still getting daily hits.
Not big hits in any way. Small numbers. But steady hits.
The blog was headlined:
THE PRACTICALITIES OF PUTTING YOUR HEAD IN A GAS OVEN: MY 2nd SUICIDE ATTEMPT
These are the figures for hits over the last fortnight. They seem fairly steady. The fact there are any at all for a two-year-old blog is extraordinary. The fact that they are regular and fairly steady is interesting.

I have no idea what this means sociologically, but it must mean something.
