And the weirdness of the Internet is: the more people read something, the more people read something. So most of this blog goes unnoticed while the eggplant post gets more and more widely disseminated.
There was also a brief burst of hits to this post, when Buzzfeed decided to feature my photo of none-pizza-left-beef along with 36 other photos of none-pizza-left beef in this random posting last month. Ah, fame!
Neither of these items represents the blog particularly well. Meanwhile, as I post less and less, and get distracted writing mystery stories, the site gets more and more traffic (albeit mostly to the eggplant thing). Isn't there any correlation at all between effort and payoff? Apparently not.
