When I check the stats from my blog/website nearly every day , I am often very pleased to see that I have had 50 or 60 visits in a day. That is, 50 or so people have visited (and hopefully read) either my blog or some other part of my web page; maybe a short story of a piece of non-fiction. And I think to myself (in a self-satisfied sort of way) how nice it is to have people read what I have written - even though these 'visitors' never leave a comment.
What a surprise I received to see in recent stats, that on Sunday, March 17, there were 280 visits to my site. 280! Now, that's a lot. And far more than have ever visited in one day before. But it was St Patrick's Day and I wonder if a few little Irish gremlins had popped in to remind me of my Irish heritage.
Would be pleased for any enlightenment.
I'd draw a little shamrock here if I could!
