172 followers

~3,000 views

16 view/day

Not bad if I do say so.   I’m not in this to make money, which I’ve learned is rare among bloggers.  I just wanted a place to share my interests and find like minded folks.  I think I’ve achieved that goal and have you to thank for it.

Most Viewed Posts:

The most popular posts are never what you expect.  My watch?  Really people?  A whole internet full of philosophy and art and you want to buy a knock-off watch and over-sized leather band.

To top that off, the second most popular post is just a referral to another website that has nothing to do with me!  I’ll never understand the internet.

1. $30 Steampunk Watch

2. steampunkworkshop.com

3. About / Guest Book

2. Vintage Clock

3. Blue Fractal Tiger

Most LIKED post:
Zebra Crossing/Atheists Beware – NatGeo

The fortunate pairing of a great pic from National Geographic and an epic quote from Douglas Adams. Who knew it would be such a hit?

That’s what I’ve got folks. My second Blog is also making slow and steady progress, but is a different creature from Not-Dot and devoted to the art of writing (and getting published) and to my own creative writing. Thanks for stopping by, Liking, Reblogging, and Commenting, keep it up!
