Maybe I'm old-fashioned. Maybe I have a cold heart....but when I end relationships with people, it's over. I don't want to know what's going on in their lives. I couldn't care less what they're thinking or feeling. I just want to relegate them to my past. So I find it odd when people from my past are still interested in me & my life.
I can understand stumbling across my blog. This is a public forum and if I wanted to hide it, I could make it private. That's not going to happen. There's no shame in my game. However, when someone from my past actively seeks this blog out, it just begs the question: "why?"
I guess I should find it a nice stroke to the ego, but I don't. I find it strange. I wonder if the lurker(s) know that I have a little HTML code embedded in my blog that tracks EVERYONE that visits here. If you're a stats whore like me, you might want to check out Sitemeter. It's free, and will let you know where your visitors are coming from (city, IP address, & latitude/longitude map coordinates), when they visit, how long they visited your blog, and a whole lot more data.
I recently had Paul install the coding on his blog...very interesting who visits his site as well.
