UPDATE—Perhaps the increase in comments is in some way related to the growth of traffic here at Hogewash!.
July, 2011—86 hits
July, 2012—30,914 hits (about 18,000 from my first Instalanche)
July, 2013—56,212 hits
July, 2014—174,853 hits
While it is true that most of comments over the past few months have been related to The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt™, it appears that most of my readers aren’t particularly interested in him. Looking at my incoming stats, the vast majority of hits on this blog are not directed to posts that are about the Cabin Boy™ or contain comments about him.
