The statistics counter that I use tells me how many visitors I've had per day, week, hour and so on, and also has a "Who's On Now?" feature that gives me the town and time of any visitor I've had in the previous 20 minutes. It usually tells me something about someone who has come and gone, but tonight there's someone reading through the whole site.
It caught my attention because the page they were reading was an old one, from months ago, and I wondered, "What brought them to that?" and then I saw that they had thirty six page views over the previous hundred and eight minutes. There's one post my reader keeps returning to, whether it's an accident of the back button or a question on the topic, I don't know. I want to reach through the screen and talk. Leave a comment. Send an e-mail. I'm nice to visitors, really.
