A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

My Flickr Top Ten - No. 1

The Pyramid - Week Three by Alennka
The Pyramid - Week Three, a photo by Alennka on Flickr.

With a whopping 1943 views to date, by far the most looked at photo in my Flickr photostream is this view of the pyramid tomb. It has a massive 1457 views more than it's closest rival. It has raked up all these views in just twelve months while the rest of the top ten has had twice as long or more to attract viewers.

So why is this photo so popular?

The answer to that question is a bit of a mystery. Flickr keeps track of daily statisics about which photos were viewed each day and where those viewers came from. Mostly, views come from flickr.com itself or from search engines like google. Sometimes they come from links here on my blog or in the DHE forum or links people have put on their facebook or twitter. But everyday for about five months, a large portion of views have come from an "unknown location" and over the same period, this photo has been the most viewed each day. The logical conclusion is that a lot of people are following a link from a site Flickr can't identify to this particular photo.

Where this mysterious site is and why so many people continue to be interested in following the link that must be there is a mystery.
