  • Happy Decemberween


    Oh, let's see, monthly update, what is going on around here. Getting my head wrapped around tiny newbies coming in 2013. Funny how it started with my own scare last spring, then my 29 year old and now my 25 year old, and despite there being an actual 'Lex in the family, no, don't expect a Lexx... That would be a little much. Otherwise have gone into my usual yearly aspie holiday shut down mode. Used to be able to play the game better, now I can't keep up and it's just wiser to let it all roll over the top while I hunker down in my cave and sip on hot chocolate.
    I'm not sure how I feel about stuff usually until about 3 months after whatever is going on has passed #aspie, so I'm kind of just sitting back and watching stuff happen. My pinkyguerrero twitter went from 20 something followers to hovering around 90 in the last two weeks, a few impressive authors in the mix, and I'm at a loss how stuff like that happens, so cool beans and I hope I don't disappoint anyone. Retweeting a Lexx movie quote where 790 is calling Stanley a security class retard lost me a follower within seconds, so I guess a few people actually have me on mobile alert, how flattering. I'll try to watch that kind of stuff, I know the R word is a big deal now, apologies. Hooking up with other website owners, always a pleasure. The most inspiring one to date is, that is a LOT of work. The plans I have for 2013 will hopefully live up to that level of productivity.
    My biggest challenge this month is super fibro flaring back up, full body spasm as I call it. No rhyme or reason but seems everything triggers it once it starts, so I had to cut out upper body workouts for a couple weeks, change the way I work, basically keep moving and stretching and resting, no sitting or standing for any length of time, because even just driving or working on the laptop or watching a 30 minute show on tv was making it worse. Just one of those things you wait to pass over while you get through it, have been doing this nearly all my life and very good at dealing. It's a nervous system disorder, once it hits it's like everything goes glitchy, and I have to wait for the system to run diagnostics and install repair apps and whatever. I have to admit, the stuff I go through gets a little scary, different nerve bundles around my body glitching can mimic all kinds of problems, but it's just the nerves fritzing around like an old string of Christmas lights. It's a running joke that I probably won't even know if I have a heart attack or stroke because I'm so used to feeling like I am all the time. One rheumatologist thinks it all started with untreated Lyme in high school, so there you go. Key recovery treatment is stay hydrated, sleep as much as possible, and excellent nutrition, which is good advice anyway. I always get a side order of depression when I flare, so that's another thing, make a plan every day, set reachable goals, work in small batches of time, small steps get big things done. When I feel like I'm not getting anywhere, I can look back and see how much I have gotten done and am pleasantly surprised. No matter how bad a day seems to get, I can say I did something positive, even if it's only one thing. It's a good lifestyle. I have very little tolerance for self pity, which I'm sure would turn me into a super villain.
    So, holidays all over the place, I'm skating slowly around the edge of the pond getting to the other side, and at least the lights are pretty. And thank goodness for live streaming, another Merlin coming up in two hours. Keeping pace with the other side of the world... Funny how we can do that just sitting around in our houses, right? Love this time we live in.

web stats

My first tracker was installed in 2004 and broke several times before moving to a new server, which lost a few months of stats, and then Xanga moved to new servers and I lost more stats for more months before the page came back up, so I've lost a total of about two years' worth of stats. The second was installed 2-22-14 and is considered very conservative by business owners who use analytics, which itself is very conservative, estimates being that roughly one third to one half of hits by real live people aren't even counted, most likely due to javascript discrepancies. Actual hits on several posts here are in the thousands now, and the Lexx Index in the ten thousands. I've got pingbacks turned off, so spam isn't counted at all within the Xanga internal tracker, and most direct post hits can be correlated to my real time linking activity on twitter and other social media. When I did Google Analytics beta testing I got to see how search engine performance compares to tracking. I believe live feed linking sources to various social medias are key to a future where search engines are more about performance than cataloging, which has been confirmed to me by coders who create bot algorithms as I was beta testing I've fought hard through redundant age-old stacks to make my way to the google front lines again, so my Lexx work shows up faster on Chrome searches now. This has been a really interesting ride. At any rate, my point is, I can still go back 6 years on my original tracker and I can still see that in 2013 just before the last big blog server move, I was getting traffic like this (and since then, the tracker may have been abandoned, we can't tell). Click the thumbnail to see full size.

My original tracker also still lets me see the latest 500 visitors on a map. I once counted over 80 countries among the total visits. You guys are not alone. Click the map to see it better.

Besides Lexx, the most common search phrases that bring new visitors here are variations on 'huge spaceship'. The most seen post from a phrase search is How Big is the Lexx? My biggest Lexx referrer is Lexx Domain. Most of page views per person count comes from the Lexx tag on Tumblr. Visitors who stay the longest come through URLOpener and are pinged through the Google translator server in Mountain View, CA.
