I always think it's interesting to see what my blog's up to, readership-wise. Most times when I check, the pageviews look something like this:
Small potatoes for a professional blogger, but I'm satisfied with it. Yesterday when I logged in I was saddened to see that the graph was almost a flat line. I wondered what had happened to my readers until I looked at the vertical axis:

I tried to find out where all those views came from, but Blogger was no help. The statistics options are Today, Yesterday, and Last Month. I guess I'll never know if it was one person who read massive amounts of my blog, or multitudes of people who stopped in for a short visit.
