Almost two weeks ago now, thingsmagazine found craneporn.org, my other domain. (I only have two. More seems a bit wasteful, really.) Subsequently, metafilter and a whole host of others have seen fit to look at the site. So my previous daily average of six page views has gone up. Just a bit.
Daily page hits for craneporn.org for
the first ten days of November.
Now, I wouldn't be posting this just to crow about page impressions (although they're kind of nice, I suppose; though not as nice as the fan mail, which is as welcome as it is surprising). Firstly, I'd like to put it on the record that craneporn.org is a big, horrible hack, consisting as it does of a search into my picture collection, which, er, doesn't really handle searches well at all. (I might get round to fixing it one day, but don't hold your breath. I never expected more than three people a day to look at it, you know. Oh, and there are lots of photos in there to categorise.)
Secondly, it just so happens that this week BBC Radio 4 is broadcasting a series entitled The Life Of Cranes, at 15:45 GMT every day. (That's today's programme; here are links to the synopses of those on Thursday and Friday.) I missed the first (but andym did let me know it was on; thanks!), but listened to the second, and it's worth letting people know about.
Now, once I'd have listened but not really thought more about it. However, with so much interest being shown in craneporn.org, I thought I'd better let people know about the show. (Feeble justification for the graph! Hurrah!) Sadly, Life of Cranes doesn't seem to be showing up on Radio 4's Listen Again page, so if you can't get online for it, you'll miss it entirely. Catch it while you can.
