Last week I noticed a gratifying spike in visits to my site. I was SOooo pleased. At last, I was famous and everyone would soon be clamouring to buy my books.
I’ve only just learned how to go to the ‘stats’ page to see which pages are the most ‘viewed.’ The post attracting all this attention was the one entitled, “Flies, Twinks, Elephants….” not my best effort, just a spontaneous ditty I thought up, in between batting annoying flies.
I was surprised so many people were interested in cats. I’ve always thought I belong to a select group of people who love them. I got that warm fuzzy, feeling, gratified that a stack of people out there are also put to sleep by a cat purring away. I love that little diesel engine….love to stroke their silky coats, or watch them hopelessly stalk a bird.
I named our little orphan Twinks, cos she has four little white feet and with her black body, looked like twinkle toes…dancing across the floor. Her mum, Mrs Raven was killed, probably by a Mozambican Spitting Cobra along with Twink’s two (tabby) siblings. I usually pick the tabbies – I love them. Normally, I wouldn’t have chosen Twinks…after Scar, I swore I wouldn’t have a (personal) cat again.
Twinks is the sweetest thing…she play fights, climbs the curtains and very gratifying for me…thinks she is a human. She wants to bath with me, sleep with me, come in the car with me…
The search terms are listed on WordPress. I found the following:
Twinks, black, Zimbabwe
People were searching on my kitty??? Even warmer, fuzzier feelings…
These are some pics of my Twinks….
I noticed that several of the search engines originated in countries like Sweden, Germany…Only a few in Zimbabwe. Curious, I searched on “Twinks”
Oops….not my kitty cat! I guess the single Zimboe search was the CIO: gayness is banned in Zimbabwe!
I’m going to have to go back in my tags and remove “Twinks…”
Pity, cos I got a big kick from all the hits on my blog…it’s a shame none of them saw the adverts for my book…no twinks in there unfortunately. Looks like I used the wrong subject material!
