However, since my time is at a premium these days (I have an MFA application due September 1st, and all my papers for my penultimate undergrad quarter due a week later), I'm away from the Chron more than I'd like. It might get worse next quarter -- it being my last and all.
In any case, I have been using my trusty Bravenet counter to monitor how traffic is coming to the Chron. Most of it is through direct hits, which is heartening, because it means that a lot of you guys have me bookmarked and just keep coming back for more
Every now and then, though, I get a search result as the referrer. I can't help myself. I feel compelled to click on the link and find out what was searched that brought up the Chron. Almost invariably, it is a search for something containing the word "naked." Presumably, the many mentions of the Chron's sister blog, Naked Voodoo Chicken Dance, creates a Chron hit. Today's search was an MSN scour for "naked tide." Yesterday, somebody googled "naked voodoo."
I guess what I want to know is… who are you people and why are you so obsessed with naked things? I mean, do we need to call someone? Because I just think this absorption over nudity is really unwarranted, and more than a little unhealthy. Admitting that you need help is the first step to a new life. I just saying....
Anyway, I have to go finish typing my admissions dialogue. After this quarter's over, we'll sit down and have a nice, long chat about science and the miracle of human nakedness. Perhaps if I answer all your questions, you guys won't be so idly curious.
