Random thoughts from a random mind

I don't suffer from randomness… I, obviously, quite enjoy it!!

I have a question for readers of my blog.

on August 20, 2012

When I look at my Stats on this blog there is one post that is far more popular than the rest. Thank you for reading. I just wanted to know why.  Here’s the link…

https://baarmychris.wordpress.com/Cinquain – Sheep

So what is it about my ‘Sheep Cinquain’ that attracts so many views? 

1. Is it the picture? (I have to admit, if it was me searching for a post on sheep, the picture would’ve done it for me but that’s because I love sheep.)

I entered the word ‘sheep’ into Google search engine and my post doesn’t appear on the first page so it can’t be that.

2. Is it because it’s a Cinquain?

Well, again I typed ‘Cinquain’ into the search bar and it didn’t appear on that first page either.

3. What about Cinquain Sheep?

I tried putting the two words together and ‘Hey presto’ my blog appears on the first page. It’s not the first one there though so I’m still not convinced.

4. Finally, could it be just because it’s my blog?

Well I’d like to say it is but if it was my blog that interested the reader, then why would you read just my ‘Sheep Cinquain’? After all I have published 63 posts now and surely you would read others too.

I don’t have the answers which is why I’m asking you. Yes, I am talking to you.

Please humour me by leaving a comment if you’re one of those readers who has viewed my ‘Sheep Cinquain.’ Don’t worry, you can remain anonymous should you feel embarrassed about liking sheep/cinquains as much as I do.

Don’t be sheepish…ewe know it makes sense…(Sorry, don’t let me start my wordplay shenanigans!)

    I had a similar experience on another blog. Then someone told me it was because I was coming top in google searches for ‘smurf porn’. I kid* you not. (Don’t go looking – I’m assured that I have been long since overtaken.)

    *That was not another pun. I know my sheep from my goats.

      Hi Marie,
      Thanks for your comment. (I know it wasn’t a pun but if it was, it was good)I just thought it was strange that my post always got views every day. It’s the only one that does and I didn’t rate it as being that good, myself. Also I published it a while ago, I’m not complaining because it gives me a good idea of how to entitle my posts from now on. Thanks again. Chris 🙂
