tomorrow is the one week anniversary of the day on which my blog saw the most 'page loads' ever, since i started tracking at least. last tuesday there were 108 page loads and over 80 'unique visitors'. i think i like 'returning visits' best out of 'page loads', 'unique visitors', and 'returning visits' because returning visits might mean, sometimes, that people like my blog so much that they have to come back to it more than once a day. if there is a day where no one visits my blog i will be sad, even if i don't notice that no one visited my blog on that particular day until days after that day happened. i will be 'retroactively sad'. i think retroactive sadness is only possible via the 'advent' of the internet and what i like to call, starting now, 'blog consciousness'.
