Today is the first day since I began my blogular sabbatical that Baboons have not offered a post to keep the conversation going.
And here we are in the second week of August. More than two months without a gap. Well done!
In case you were wondering, traffic on Trail Baboon has not suffered in my absence. On the contrary, your self-selected topics have generated more conversation and higher numbers all around.
Below you can see Trail Baboon’s weekly statistics since early this year. The rise on the right end of the screen represents your engagement with and response to Baboon-written posts.
A friend asked me last week how the blog sabbatical was going, and I explained it by noting that in South Africa, if you leave a window open, Baboons will come in and make themselves at home.
Real baboons also make a terrible mess. But the evidence of the past eight weeks indicates that virtual baboons are much nicer, and will generally improve things when given the chance.
How are you at house-sitting ?
