I checked my user stats and saw this:
It is my understanding that “visits” represent the number of unique visits/visitors to charleyproject.org. And it’s up a bit for some reason. The average is currently 10,134 visitors a day. (Actually it’s 10,133.6; I rounded up. /pedantry) As opposed to last month when the average was 8,339. In May it was 8,171 and in April it was 8,070. Not much of a change there. Every day this month, though, save July 1, the number of visitors has been above the average 8,000-ish range.
Judging by the casefiles my visitors are looking at most often: Caleigh Harrison, Aliayah Lunsford and “Baby Kate” Phillips, I’d say the spike in visits has something to do with that unidentified little girl they found off the case of Massachusetts. I know there’s been speculation that one of the three missing girls could be her. Kristine Hamilton is also being looked at a lot though, and she DEFINITELY isn’t the Massachusetts Baby Doe and I can’t find any recent news about her. Shrug.
Tonight I was going through my “general” category looking to clean it out. “General” is a mixed bag category, meant for posts that are impossible for me to categorize elsewhere, or which are wedged into a few categories but are pretty broad in scope. I discovered that only some the posts in the “general” category, however, were REALLY uncategorizable. In many cases I simply forgot to add any categories to the post and WordPress thus put it in the “general” category automatically. In a few others, since writing the entry I’ve created categories I can put the post in, so I can remove it from the mixed bag of “general.”
But while I was going back through six and a half years of postings in “general,” I found some I wouldn’t mind bringing up to the surface again. Most are just thoughts about particular MP-related issues, or crime-related issues in general. (I’ve found my opinions on such matters haven’t changed since I started this blog.) Other entries are about issues I’ve had running the site. (There are so many posts in there about my computer woes that I’m thinking about creating a “computer trouble” category of its own, perhaps as a subcategory of “day-to-day website business.” But I haven’t had any computer woes since I got Orville, thanks to all of you.)

*I do not currently, and have not for a long time, have any problems with people commenting on this blog. I just thought it would be good to put up anyway.
**This entry is on the list not for the entry itself but for the comments section, which is a bit entertaining to read.
I would like to remind everyone that I accidentally posted the YouTube Saturday videos on Friday. Here they are.
