This is the first blog that I have contributed to.  I spend a lot of time looking at our stats and referrers and I have collected a few gems that I thought TDV readers might enjoy.  After all, you are a diverse bunch with people coming from exotic locations such as Ohio, Maryland and Kansas (no wonder we don’t get any ad click-throughs):

The Dark Visitor’s Visitors

 People come to The Dark Visitor for many reasons.  Lately, everyone is looking for Xiao Chen’s secret website.  Everyone else seems to be looking for “H0rt0n Hears a Wh0″.  Maybe we should use mod_rewrite to redirect these referrers to where they can probably download it in a few clicks.

If anyone else has some funny blog stat stories, please feel free to share.  I hope you don’t mind the diversion from our favorite topic.
