Since the day me created my blog, me had created the stat-counter and in the beginning, me was very excited to see that the hit counters kept going up daily. (Now that me think back, excited for what F? Even if there were no reader, me will still continue to write.)
From the beginning first 100th to the first 1000th visits and to current 40,000+ hit counters, then the counter function screwed-up. It is stucked at 42,431. (Hmmm, must try my luck on this coming Wednesday).
Me always will go into my stat-counter, not to see how many hits me got but rather to see who are the people who visited my blog.
Today, me see that there is zero visit which is not possible cos my stat counter is set in such a way that even me myself visit my own blog, the hit counter will reflect as 1 hit and furthermore both Noeyeseesee and Lau Hero had each left a comment in my blog, thus the conclusion me gathered is the stat-counter spoilt liao.
It is only then that me start to think: so why do me need a stat-counter? To show readers that me actually have the numbers of hits and people visiting my blog? (It is not true cos if me visit my blog 5 times a day, then me created the impression of 5 hits but in actual fact, where got par-kay?)
Me remember long time ago, me saw Monkichi answering some reader´s query on why her blog does not have a stat counter and her reply was: Why? Do I need one?
Anyway, what is 40000+ hits in the 8 months of my blogging? However me write, whether in Good English, Hokkien Singlish, Chinese or upload lots of pictures, still cannot hold a candle to blogs hits like Rockson, Blinkymummy and Xiaxue.
As me had mentioned before, me writing blog is not for anyone in particular but more to me enjoying myself in my own playground and of course the comments left by readers and the interaction of replies always makes me happy.
So, from today, me will just leave the stat counter as it is (42,431 hits forever) in my blog. Taking the opportunity that since the stat counter is already spoilt.
So be it. Me write, me enjoy!
Even if there is zero reader cos the greatest entertainment is to entertain myself.
lim peh kong wan liao
