Do you know what happened 151 years ago this fall… Back in 1851?
California became a state.
The people had no electricity.
The state had no money.
Almost everyone spoke Spanish.
And, there were gunfights in the streets.
So, basically nothing has changed except that back then,
the women had real breasts and the men didn’t hold hands.
That, my friends, is the history lesson for today ….
This graph was snatched from my dashboard. It is something that I find interesting.
As most of you know we went to a policy of writing shorter posts about a month ago, and by the stats, it appears that it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever to the readership. If the material or subject matter is long, the readers are there, if it short, concise and to the point, the same thing. It is not in the numbers it is in the “quality of the material or the subject matter.”
Regardless of current attitudes, I have found it stays fairly consistent day to day … As for myself, the shorter version is much easier to write and less work for me, but it doesn’t matter really, long or short, what I pound out and throw down on the page, is what I feel for that day. It could go either way.
See you at the water-cooler
