Over at Hogewash, W.J.J Hoge loves to brag to everyone within earshot that he’s just putting up all kinds of stupid huge numbers with regards to his web traffic.
Such is the case this morning when he took me to task for daring to suggest that my website was getting to be more popular than his.
Sure, those are pretty decent numbers but…so what? It’s like laying claim to owning the biggest pile of shit – at the end of the day, it’s still a pile of shit.
Looking over Hogewash, Hoge’s blogs get at most 24 likes and maybe up to 24 comments. Let me repeat that: out of 4200+ hits on his site, only 24 people actually take the time to pat Hoge on the back and tell him what a good job he’s doing.
As for the rest, I have a theory and it goes something like this: the real reason you have over 4247 hits on your site as of yesterday, Hoge, is for the same reason I watch NASCAR:
That’s right, the wreckage.
What’s closer to the truth is that those people who wander through your website everyday are only there because they’ve heard the stories and now they need to see it for themselves because they can’t believe that there’s an actual living, breathing human being out there who is that big of an asshole.
But please, Hoge, go ahead – try (feebly) and quantify your fanbase. Until then…the mockery continues.
