I happened to click on my Blogger 'Stats' option a few minutes ago.
After having been blogging since the end of February 2010, my
site has logged almost 103 thousand pageviews. It boggles my
mind. And what's even more perplexing is the next statistic: the
most viewed post to date is the one simply entitled 'Souse'.
Pig snouts and jowls and ears and feet, suspended in a
vinegared gelatin, usually derived from stewing the bones of the
animal from which the scraps originated. Don't get me wrong;
this mosaic of offal products is the stuff dreams are made of.
But to be the single most-viewed post I've published? There
wasn't even one letter of witty, insightful text below the photo. I've
got to believe the majority of those viewers were Europeans,
because Americans typically just don't eat this shit. Except for me.
Look for an upcoming, textless post on 'Scrapple'.
