“The Mystery of Stats” by Richard F. Yates

I may not be the world’s best mathematician (in fact I bailed out of anthropology as a major when I discovered I would need to take a statistics course—poetry was far less CONTROLLING,) but I can’t seem to figure out how I can have 23 “likes,” 5 reposts of different drawings on other people’s sites, and several comments—but still have ZERO visitors and ZERO views for the day. Is there some kind of weird, supernatural, out-of-electronic-body experience type of thing going on? Remote viewing has become remote “liking,” being able to know if you enjoy something without seeing or visiting it???

Don’t let this happen to you!

    It’s tough to say… sometimes if you read something in your WordPress Reader, I’m not sure if that counts as an official “view” or visit, but it does give you the ability to like and comment.I figure that any engagement with content is a good thing, whether or not it makes sense, stats-wise.

    • Yeah, I’m with you. (But really, I just wanted to compare the technology to some supernatural phenomena. Some jokes, especially early in the morning, fall a little flat.)

        Haha, no, I got the jokes 🙂 Just thought I might chime in because I’ve had some (more serious) thoughts on this!

    Your art shows up in the Reader. If there is nothing indicating more words, then people can like or reblog directly from the reader without ever clicking into your actual blog.
