Most people who read this blog don’t follow any of the links. MyBlogLog shows me that: on most days, less than five percent of the readers will have followed any individual link. Until yesterday, that is, when nearly 50% of the readers went and looked at that photo of me in the interview. Cads!

Ah well, I suppose I want to know what people look like, too 😉

    None of us can help it, Jill, you see, “esse est percipi”,ñ being perceived is food to us (all bloggers I guess). And from the other side of the glass darkly, getting a photo which in a way gazes back is just irre-sis-t-i-bl-e.

What people click on and whether or not they return to the original post fascinates me. 🙂

I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
