The Elusive Wapiti, over at The Elusive Wapiti blogspot, shut down his operations almost a year ago. His last post was on November 12 of last year (2014) in which he announced that he was moving on to other projects and would no longer be entertaining us with his musings. He was and continues to be missed as his writings were entertaining.
He continues to live, however, in ways even he might not have expected.
I generally don't check my blog stats. Mainly because I don't care that much. I hope that those who do wander by enjoy something I've written, might be nice if they told their friends about this mildly entertaining (if sparsely populated) blog that they found. I don't make any money off it and post mainly to keep those who have wandered by entertained (if I don't post for a while I start to feel guilty). I do, however, look at my stats about once a year or so just to see what is going on.
Over the past month The Elusive Wapiti has been responsible for almost 40% of my traffic and this number is consistent over the past week as well. All time, it appears that about one fourth of my traffic has come from his blog, a blog that hasn't even been posted on for a year. Either people are still finding and reading his old posts or his former readers are using his old blog as a link library.
Elusive Wapiti, if you are still out there and reading this, maybe it's time to come back. You seem to have a following.
