I am always amazed at where my blog visitors come from. Yesterday there was such a spike in activity I knew something odd had happened.
Odd indeed. Apparently an anime blogger (anime is the name for the Japanese-style graphic novel so popular with teens today--and a lot of adults too) wrote a cartoon based on the Aesop fable of the Golden Axe. The blogger linked to my blog for the story so that his readers would understand the source of his tale.
That link has generated well over 500 visits here! Will the new visitors go further than that post from a year ago? Probably not, but how amazing that they were here at all. If you are one of those visitors, welcome. I know this isn't your kind of place, but welcome just the same.
Another visit to an older blog came from a screenwriter who visited and left a comment on my "Raw Head Bloody Bones" post. Again, an old story drew in a new reader. He may never come back, but I am glad he came and left a comment that he'd been here.
You just never know who will connect with something you write. Which is why I love to write, and why I love to blog.
