I Like To Make Up Stories From My Web Stats

Here is an example of why my Web stats are so addictive. Nori Magazine’s traffic is so low that I can see individual people looking at the site. Look at the below and then I’ll talk about it.

Ok, so these people are in the Bronx. They don’t live in Brooklyn, so they’re not hipster media people who might work for Gawker. What makes this interesting to me is two different people, using two different phones, looked at the site. So, it’s possible that they were having a conversation about the Daquan Meme and they decided to look it up. I find that fascinating. That might be a sign that the meme is growing in power. Real people in real situations are looking for information about the meme because the mainstream press has totally, utterly ignored it.

I wish more cool people would visit Nori Magazine. Seeing people with cool domain names or coming from cool places like NYC, Paris, LA or London makes my day.

Motion Picture Soundtrack, Redux

The above song pretty much sums up my mood right now.

As you can see, my Web traffic for today is down greatly.

If more people were looking at the Homepage and Archives, then I would know I was maybe gaining a following of some sort. But that’s just not happening. And, my traffic is really, really low. If I was breaking 1,000 a day on a regular basis, then I would probably be in a much better mood.

But at this point, I’m pretty much just writing scenarios about the Daquan Meme with the delusional hope that someone in the media might read it and this meme might get picked up. That’s just not going to happen. But it is fun to write about this meme, so I keep doing it.

Tomorrow, however, I’m going to cut myself off from social media. I’m going cold turkey. I’m going to get some work done that I’ve been delaying for way too long. I am going to try to, like, act like an adult.

Smile Like You Mean It, Redux

I spent all day looking at my Web stats instead of doing what I should have done, which is look for a new job. I think I’m going cold turkey tomorrow when I wake up. I’m not going to check my Web stats or write. I’m just going to do all the things I was supposed to have done for months now.

And since my traffic slows down significantly on the weekends, I’m not going to be missing much, probably.

If something happens dramatic with the Daquan Meme, I’ll just say screw it and keep writing.

But I doubt that will happen. I am going to actually step away from social media for a few days and live my life. I can’t keep doing what I’m doing anymore.

A Message To The Crazy, Bitter, Haters With Too Much Time On Their Hands

Please watch this video in its entirety should you want to do anything to me personally because of Somehow.

The ending words are really significant.

I don’t honestly believe anyone is going to do me physical harm, but I simply want to state my opinion on the matter for the record.

‘It’s Not Paranoia If They’re Really Out To Get You’

I know who I’ve messed with.

I know what could happen.

I went kamikaze and now I have to deal with the consquences.

I am prepared for the worst.  It may be just a matter of time before the worst happens. But if it does happen, I’m ready. And the story is out there now….what I wanted to have happen, happened.

It made me feel better, at least.

And, if you knew what I know….all this would make sense and you wouldn’t think I’m just being paranoid.  I’m 41, that’s a good age.

You can’t keep a good man down.

Somehow — ROKon Magazine Memoir 12

These are a regular two three. But “Somehow” seems to be fading quick. But, again, a lot of people probably have printed it out and are handing it to people.

Why Everyone Talking About Daquan On Instagram? 3

The Daquan Meme is big on Instagram right now. Given that it’s a visual joke, that makes sense. That may be something generating a lot of heat in social media right now.
