Why do I blog to an audience of 1.5 people

Aw come on, you're not the .5 person you are number 1. It's just a statistic. I polled the world wide audience and divided it by only the bloggers that say something important. It's not like he/her is 1/2 a person, it's just he/her (sounds like a donkey, perhaps I should poll the animal kingdom, do bats tune into broadband?) only views sometimes and I'm working hard to bring hehaw up to .75.
I know you think I'm perfect but I do have addictions. There is the world before my morning coffee (I hate it) and the world after the strong drug (it hates me). I have an addiction to being right even when I'm completely wrong. I can't believe I admitted that, perhaps the rehab is working. I am a normal sociable person drinking gin/vodka/cactus juice/meths but start me on whisky and you've got a raving lunatic on your hands.
So is blogging an addiction? Do I wake at 4 am thinking about what I'm going to write. Yes...Do I high five the cat when I get a comment. Yes... Do I actually believe it's worth reading. Yes.. (delusional as well). Do I enjoy it. No... But feel I have to = addiction.
So, dear 1.75 readers (stop press he/her has just gone up to visiting once a month) I hope my imperfections haven't put you off. My counter only goes up. If you are wavering I have a once in a life time offer... keep logging in and learn whether I wear underwear or not!!!

Hi Dave, as one of the 1.5 readers i have to say: "keep going!" I like to read about the world over there.

Since i read your blog using the feed i don't visit your site very often but to keep the statistics going i'll try to read it on the site itself. Anything to help :)

Gerben - I'm glad you said over there and not under.

Anonymous - blog, blog, blog, sounds like a frog. I knew I should have polled the animal kingdom.
You have just increased my readership 82.56%
Can you anonymously comment 100 times a day using different voices then I really will be in the big league!

we need readers because we are writing for ourselves as well as for other people that's why we are using internet platform..otherwise we can write on our diary..

I always read strangers blog and ping them because i want them to sneak peek into my blog and read my thoughts..i avoid friends and known people because i want genuine review of my thoughts as the appreciation and criticism both inspires me equally...few strangers blogs are very inspiring and fun to read..

Mickey - I know you're lying but I wear brown anyway.
Shubhajit - I think it's also a lot to do with breaking the mold of your personality and using a few swear words. Micky above is a rabid dog on his site but in reality he's probably a meek accountant!!

I think that many who know me in my present incarnation would agree that I am...at best; only half a person. Hopefully that half will boost the figures.

chook said...

Hey LM good to have you back.
I'll take any half I can get. What half would you like to be, top or bottom. I like the way your mind works, are you good at running?
