After a week talking about the Black Death entering Europe, via Mongolian germ warfare, your scribe is switching focus to going viral on the Internet.
Two of your scribe's posts smoulder along, keeping a low level of interest alive like a peat or a bog fire.
Between one third to one half of my daily traffic is due to strangers visiting to look at these two postings.
Fantastic! ...Then these readers move on...
Obviously I am not as fantastic as I wish I was.
These posts seem to be sent by word of mouth, or, more accurately, by word of finger campaigns.
Your scribe watches as people with a common interest in pigs and roosters, or in Finnish metal culture, share their enthusiasm, through their fingers, with each other.
These emailed referrals never go full-viral, they always fail to exceed the tipping point.
Better writing is needed to exceed the tipping point.
The realization that my writing needs to get better stings a little, like a baby bee sting, but mostly it prods me to keep working.
Which postings are getting passed around the web?
The quixotic nature of the web continues to surprise your scribe.
If you write a blog or a website, which pages attract external attention? Of even more interest, are these the pages that you thought might attract or deserve a wider attention? Leave me a link so that we can all check them out!
