Anyway, as you might have noticed, I have decided to change the blog's layout and architecture, within the limits of the blogspot template, that is. Isn't the white, unadorned background classy? And do you like the logo I created on the top? Hey, I'm a graphic designer, I had to come up with something on my own, hadn't I?
The most important innovation: the new pages right under the logo. You'll be able to backread the first chapters ('the novel', 1 to 4), something that has already been possible before. But I decided to create two brand-new pages as well. There's one where I'll copy my short-stories. I've decided to take them out of the novel as soon as I've got the time to proof-read and edit it. The other page will contain the poems. As a birthday treat, I've even put some of the poems I haven't yet published on here (they have been published on the Literary Network only).
A last word concerning the Stats. Since the opening of the blog, you have been exactly 17.634 'unique visitors' as they call you on Google Stats. You sure are unique to me, for sure! You've paid 32.635 visits to my blog and read 46.308 pages. More than 28% come here directly; 69% have been guided by referring sites, and a minority of 1.7% has found their way through search engines. Apart from typing my name (how on earth do people know there's someone out there called Dieter Moitzi? I wonder), people stumbled upon my blog essentially by searching for – 'whore'! You remember the post where I claimed that 'sometimes, I feel like a whore'? It's the most-read post of this blog. That's where people seem to land when looking for some paid company... Great, is all I can say; now, me and 'whore' tend to be synonyms. Well, I haven't made it yet into the Oxford Dictionary (dieter, n., synonym for whore) so there's still some hope for me!
All in all, I am very satisfied. I lift my cup of coffee for a toast to all of you (it's too early in the morning for champagne) and say Thank you. Without you, this literary adventure wouldn't have been possible. And hey, do come back because I haven't finished with you yet!
