Thank You Bleacher Report

I don't often pay attention to the stats that detail readership information about my blog, and I think that most of my fellow bloggers are the same way. We don't write to become popular, but rather because it's what we want to do, and we are going to write about what we want to write, when we want to write it.

That being said, I doubt that there is more than one or two other bloggers who can say that they have NEVER glanced at their stats. I mean, if zero people ever read what I wrote, I think that might have discouraged me to the point of stopping this whole crazy endeavor. Luckily for me, at least a few people pay attention to what I write (some even on a regular basis!) so that provides me with the drive to write on days when I'm not feeling it.

Well, when I was looking at my stats the other days, specifically my traffic sources, I noticed that I had an abnormally large number of references from; if you click that link, it will take you to this page:

And if you click that "All rich in content" linked text, where do you think it takes you? You guessed it, right to this little blog here. Specifically this post about Marvelous Marv. Which is cool and all, being that bleacher report certainly has a much, much larger readership than my blog, and it brought many people to my site that would never have otherwise come across it.

So that not particularly well-written (and this honestly could be said about most of my writings) post has more than twice as many pageviews (5,330!) as anything else I've written over the past four years. And I have to thank bleacher report for that.
