Mr Monkey Takes A Well Earned Rest .. But What Were 848 of You Doing?

Thank fuck it’s all over for another year .. apparently there’s only 364 days till next Christmas!

Mr Monkey took a well a earned rest from blogging yesterday and spent the day with his extended family including several nieces and nephews that he’s never seen before.

The monkey family also set a new record yesterday with 22 people sitting down for Christmas dinner – it was fucking chaos.

Mr Monkey’s sister and her husband decided to spend thier first Christmas in England since they emigrated to New Zealand back 1995 and of course it’s cost him a bloody fortune buying presents for family he normally only speaks to on the telephone.

With a bit of luck Mr Monkey will return the favour next year and spent the festive season in New Zealand – it’s called revenge.

Things are almost back to normal today and Mr Monkey is glad to get back to the serious business of blogging.

Mr Monkey has taken a look at yesterday’s stats and is amazed that so many of you are addicted to Mr Monkey’s Blog. It seems that even on Christmas day many of you can’t keep off your computers.

Yesterday Mr Monkey’s Blog received 848  hits and Mr Monkey reckons that many of you must have been either bored stiff of Christmas, fed up with with being nice to people you can’t stand or are just a bunch of sad bastards.

Whatever the reason, thanks for stopping by; Mr Monkey appreciates your support.

    Methinks you are optimistic–it’s not over until around mid-January. Witness the mad shopping still going on today and likely all weekend.

    And how DO you get so many hits? Are you famous?

    It’s over for me Marcy, I’ve no intention of joining the crowds on the High Street as I reckon the bargains are here to stay.
    As for the hits, I reckon that’s down to content – loathe it or love it, Mr Monkey’s Blog has certainly caught the readers imagination and it seems it’s popularity is down to word of mouth and the fact that our local council has tied to censor it by banning people accessing it from their computers – some people never learn.

    Hits is one thing, visitors is another.. agree though, it is all good here!

    Okay, I admit it: I’m ignorant. Will someone please explain to me the difference between “hits” and “visitors”. And while you’re at it, “unique visitors’.
