Justin Bieber eclipses Guest Blogger Week
Now we're out by the bus stop in the drizzle with a cold breeze tugging at our coat tails, the smell of the grease paint already a distant memory as we eye the baleful lights of a fish and chip shop far across the wet highway.
Well not in America we aren't. You can't get decent fish and chips here for love or money.
Although pesonally I normally find money's a more effective way of getting fast food than offering the server my undying love.
Well thanks to all of you who sent me entries. I could have dusted off the thumb screws to squeeze that 10th blog out of the blogisphere, but my OCD isn't so bad yet that I need symmetry and an even number.
And thanks for the altruistic messages and all that, but Guest Blog Week also meant I could...
A - Be lazy
B - Get up my blog views by posting more often.
In a way this woked. Tuesday was a record day for Brits in the USA, when I secured more than 250 views. Congratulations too to Rapunzel whose Tales from the Tower was the most viewed guest blog with more than 70 views.
The rather sobering news for all you guest bloggers is the majority of my hits came from a blog I wrote a few days earlier in which I made a passing reference to, ugh, here goes... Justin Bieber.
For some reason that I can't fathom hundreds of folks, mainly from Brazil, hit on this retarded looking school boy.
Does this mean I will have to bite the bullet that all Americans are meant to have in their homes in case their kids demand a second pop tart, and actually listen to my first ever Justin Bieber track, having just realized he wasn't the kid in Home Alone.
I fear it does.
