Amazing Numbers

**This here is an undistilled, but edited, thank you of sorts.

I've always been conscious of my stats. And what makes it ironic is that I don't blog hop as much as I used to in 2006. I no longer advertise. I no longer promote. I don't see the point because my ego's as big as my brownish rabbit-shit tits anyway.

The only endorsement that this blog has been receiving for quite some time now is through my Facebook posts, my comments on Ms Jessica Zafra's blog, and then my existing links in some of your blogs. But, just the same, I am no longer actively promoting this hole in the wall. I am satisfied with what numbers I'm getting: I am averaging 40 to 50 hits on Mondays to Wednesdays, less than 30 hits during Thursdays and Fridays, and around 70 hits on weekends. And you know what, I am happy with these averages because I read somewhere that the secret of a happy life is lowered expectations.

I don't bloghop anymore because these new blogs tire me with the enthusiasm that peaked on the first month. It has been the same trend since 2005 anyway, and I've since learned to lower my expectations.

The content's a different thing, too. The internet is running out of the Suck My Dick kind of writers that I... prefer. But then, I barely have time to go over those punks in my blog roll anyway, let alone go on a blogger treasure hunt, which is unprofitable eight times out of ten. So I keep myself here and write on a once a week basis.

I don't go out, as far as blogging goes, because I've since learned to lower my expectations.

I no longer exchange links as much as I used to because I've since learned to lower my expectations.

I've kept to what numbers I'm getting because I've since learned to lower my expectations.

So you can imagine my confusion when I saw these numbers last week. And bear in mind that I rigged my StatCounter in a way that it doesn't count my own visits (like to create and edit a post).




Thank you for your visits. You know what I write, and how I write, and you know how I like to be obscene, but you kept at it anyway and I don't know why. You are such a comfort to my ornamental foulmouthing! You don't know how appreciated I feel with every pageload. And your endorsements and linkages? Why they are a grateful murder to my unthanked being!

But, on a serious note, you guys are hella weird.


Muahness from Pasig Cirehhhh!

P.S. Keep at it though. We can be secret friends. Thanks again!

And on a related note, I would like to thank you, Salbe, for that link. It reflected in this illustrious surge in my hits the week before these stats took place. ABNKKThankYouPPLAAKO. And to you, Bryan Stars, for being an "avid fan." Your words, amiga, your words. And to The Punk for giving me, at last, the one thing that you spared me since I met you -- eight hours of uninterrupted sleep.

  3. Anonymous1 -- I'm confident there's a message in there somewhere, but, darling, I couldn't make heads or tails of whatever the hell you just said.

    Tara -- Oh keep dropping by, love. I have plenty to feed a multitude.

    Cheers Anon1 and Tara! Mabuhay Kayo! Muahness from Pasig Cirehhh!

  4. Maybe people get their fill of foulmouthing from you so they don't have to. I guess you fill a certain void.

  6. I remember minsan, siguro a few months back, nag back read ako ng bongga dito at umabot ako ng year 2006 ata. Aliw much. There were a few bloggers before na talaga namang sinusundan ko dahil tuwang tuwa ko sa way ng pagsulat nila. Kaso halos lahat sila nagsihinto na sa pagsulat. And you write just like they do. Kaya kahit na maraming beses eh nahihirapan ako magcomment dito kasi sa totoo lang I feel inferior, eh gora naren.

    Nagmamaarte si Salbe kaya ginawa nya kong messenger. Sa mala dyosa kong kutis, sampalin ko to eh. Horhor. Anyways, here's what she said:

    salbehe: vajarl If ever na magkokoment ka sa bagong post ni Momel, pakisabi na lang na natats me much. Pero nahihiya pa din ako magkoment sa kanya.

    Ang kyot talaga ng stats ng Blogspot. Makulay.

    it's oK Momel if you don't get it. Being slow is an affliction we shouldn't be ashamed of.

    That's why you are called mortals.

  9. Pat -- I don't know about filling a certain void, and I do talk shit an awful lot, but it's the internet. People have this automatic license to foulmouth and suddenly become their own celestial beings or whatnot, much like the Anonymous comment on this thread, they don't need me to talk fuck for them.

    Or something.

    Vajayjay -- Thank you... for coming home... sorry all the chairs are all worn. These are my salad days... Fuck the inferior shit, Pujeyjey, walang ganon. Si Anonymous lang ang makakaintindi ng ganong complex, at di ako si Anonymous. Maraming salamat sa iyong pagtangkilik!

    Pakisabi na rin kay mahiyaing Salbe na... di angkop ang pagkamahiyain niya. Ilang beses kong ni-backread yung blog niya, at walaaaang bakas ng pagkamahiyain dun sa dotcom niya. At i-add niyo ko sa Facebook. Hehe.

    Nyl -- I agree, in secret and in the beginning, about measuring your worth with your hits. But, like I said, I've since learned to lower my expectations, so I'm comfortable with those numbers. I suppose I've matured as a blogger, but I'm still in love with my fuck words!

    It should be Cirrehhhhh! Manggagaya na lang, mali pa. Cheh! Hehe

    Anonymous -- I will now be disabling comments from Anonymous sources. There. This blog will no longer pander to ego-tripping cocksuckers and their funny turns. I leave that privilege to my person.

    Cheers Pat, Vajayjay, Nyl, and even you, Anonymous! Mabuhay Kayo! Okay, that includes you, Anonymous. Muahness from Pasig Cirreehhhh! That's a hole in the wall city in some third world country in this mortal Earth. And that goes to you, Anonymous.

  10. napadpad din ako sa blog mo through salbehe and actually i didn't expect that i would i enjoy ur writing as much as she does (see, im having low expectations like u too. lol) pero ayun, bongga naman kaya keri lang. isa sa mga favorite ko yung sulat mo kay jessica zafra about joross gamboa. namatay ako dun. lol balitaan mo kami lagi sa mga links nung mga sinalihan mo so we'll see ur other writings aside from your usual blog posts.

    actually, ako din, dumaan na sa phase na to. yung nakakatamad magcomment sa iba. mas madali kasi magbasa diba kesa magtype. haha minsan lang pag feel kong may sabihin. parang dito sa blog mo.

    kay vajarl hindi na ako nagco-comment dati pa pero nagbabasa ako paminsan minsan. kay ate salbehe, lagi akong nagbabasa kaso tinanggal na nya yung isang comment page nya dati. nahiya naman ako mag email sa kanya lol

    keep writing.

  11. isa lang ang ibig sabihin niyan, momel. huwarang manggagawa ang mga mambabasa mo kasi hindi sila pumepetiks sa trabaho para magbasa ng kung anu-anong shit sa buladaspir.

    kaya sa weekend sila nagba-bloghopping. parang ako lang. hehe.

    pero dahil nasa client ako ngayon, nag-bloghop ako. lol!

    p.s. ba't nawala 'yung Name/URL option? o_O
