useful, but not.
why i do this,
and how you get here.
I first put up the first incarnation of "Webstuff by Slappyjack" about two years ago. To put it completely frankly - the thing sicked a big fat one. Bad graphics, no content, nothing. I was doing it to learn and that was good enough for me.
After I thought I know a little more I put up the second iteration - still not much in the way of content, a few rants, mostly a piss-opoor attempt at "getting found online" and finding a gig where I coule get paid to learn something about HTML.
Then, while goofing off during the low point in my life known as "tech support", I found a few sites: Bonnie Burton's grrl.com, Miss Melty (now Buff Melty), and a few other webjournals that were really kickass. Lotsa content, nice design, plenty of stuff to keep you there and coming back for more.
This took place (as far as I know) before everybody and their prepubescent sister put up online an diary full of trite crap that are about as interesting as watching rhinos copulating in with a telephoto lens. These people had agendas. They had views and were putting them in your face and you read them at your peril. Some of them were merely out there to be funny, but they did what they did fairly well and you didn't just go back to see if Betty and Bobby stayed broken up.
So along came WbS, ver 3.0. Being my Father's son, i figured my opinions are just as valid as everyone else's (even though most of theirs are incorrect) and I needed to be heard. (read. whatever. Fuck you.)
This site is all about being selfish and telling you what I think. I want readers and lots of 'em. i don't want to be cool. i don't want to make money. i want to be out there.
So, i read the logs. a lot.
After reading raw weblogs for a little bit you get to learn what they mean, especially the referrer section of an entry. Youi see where paople are coming from and in the case of search engines, what they were looking for to get here.
A few things I've learned from this:
The Porn Searches
these really are actual search queries...
2. I'm apparently not the only annoyed person out there:
3. There will always be those out there without a clue
Then I find out that I'm starting to get anonymous links. To rip off Big Empire, I'm going to call them "SlappyJack Buddies":
Then I found out that I'm high up on the Webring chain! 12th most active this week, barely behind buggie!
WooHoo! I beat out all them depressed freshman Drama Students!
then I came to the realization:the reason y'all read me so much:
