I've admitted several times that I'm obsessed with my SiteMeter, which tells me all sorts of things about You, my reader. Yeah, you. I've come to recognize many of you by location and such, but there are a few of you out there who just make me so curious. Where'd you come from? How'd you find me? Do I know you and you think you're sooo slick that I don't know you're reading?
There are four of you out there, in particular, that I'm curious about.
1. You, in Durham, NC, who occasionally find my blog by Googling "Tyler C0ates Montross." This gives me the impression that you're someone from back home, someone from high school. I know at least four people in North Carolina. One works at a sporting goods store, so I'm ruling him out. The other three, however, have mystery professions, and I'm curious: do any of them work for major computer corporations? (Hint: it's not Dell, or Gateway, or HP.)
2. You, in Fairfax, VA, who check my blog nearly every morning from George Mason University. Did I go to JMU with you? Are you continuing your studies in graduate school? Ph.D. program? How are you these days? Man, do you miss Market One as much as I do?!
3. You, who read my blog through a blog reader from a computer registered to the university I work for. Are you in my office? In my building? Do I know you? Want to do lunch sometime?
4. You, from the Hampton / Virginia Beach / Newport News area. You could, quite possibly, be a few people who all find my blog quite regularly by searching for "too much awesome." Are we related? Did we go to school together? What's your story, sir or madam?
I'm not even going to start on all you Elgin and Hinsdale residents who found my blog through Facebook. I'm sure I don't know who you are.
So, if you feel like shooting me an email saying, "Yes, Tyler, I stalk you. Call me?" I'd really appreciate it. Just because I'm interested in you. And paranoid. But mostly curious.
MAN. Isn't the Internet CREEPY?
