Okay, so I loosely monitor the views and stats for the blog. It doesn’t really inform the choices I make in writing, I just find it entertaining because it always seems the most random things get the most views.
Sometimes it’s fairly easy to figure out what’s going on by looking at the referrers section. A few of my spikes were the result of being linked somewhere else on the internet. Other blogs, mostly.
One that surprised me though was my post about ES6 and the Creation Engine. That post got a fair amount of search traffic for reasons that are still a mystery to me. I wouldn’t think that my opinion was all that interesting, really. Very recently I keep getting hits on, of all things, that Big Boy appliances post.
I mean, I thought it was mildly amusing, but why?
I suppose I shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. It just seems like a really odd post to have acquired so many views. A few people even watched the video. Such an odd outcome for a post about a passing curiosity.
In unrelated news, the Steam Winter Sale is now live. This means it’s time to do some voting and maybe pick up a few odds and ends for Something New posts. I’ve very briefly looked through my wishlist, though, and not much was standing out.
It’s also time to vote for the Steam awards, the same ones we did nominations for a while back. My voting now mostly follows my nominations. I mean, I wouldn’t have nominated it if I didn’t think it was a good pick.
I’ll probably go over it again anyway, as there are a few things I thought were amusing or interesting.
I’ve also noticed Steam selling VR hard, again. I’d love to use VR, if, y’know, the headsets didn’t cost $600+ apiece. I’m sure the kids would inevitably find a way to damage it anyway, and I’m not sure my PC has quite enough power to push it. I actually tried streaming Elite VR to my phone at one point, but never could get it to work quite right.
Either way, it’s off to bed with me. Tomorrow is going to be fairly busy and I’d like to get it out of the way. I could use some downtime. I’ve been quite irritable lately. Y’all take care, don’t give all your money to Valve.
