I'm sure those of you who keeps a blog check your visitors' log once in a while to see who's reading your blog. Or to see if you're being stalked.
Well, I'm afraid that's what I found out when I came home from Toronto...
OK, get this. Oh, and be warned, it's a bit creepy.
So. My laptop's finally fixed, so I decided to see if anyone even read my blog when I'm not around. And when I look into my blog's stats, I noticed that over the few days while I was in Toronto, I have over 10x my normal traffic on the blog. Not more visitors, just more views from this visitor that I don't recognize.
To complicate things, this visitor is "invisible", i.e. he/she/it does not show up on the visitors' map below, and would spend like 5 or 6 hours each day on my blog, and look at like 600 pages at a time (do I even have 600 pages on my blog?!)
Kinda creeped out, I decided I need to dig out this stalker... I look up the various IP addresses used, and I figured out where Invisible Stalker is located: Russia. *da da darng*
This whole covert Russian cold-war thing brings to mind two possibilities... This stalker must be either:
1. The Spy Who Loved me. Oh wait, maybe it's the International Man of Mystery? Or...
2. A Cosmo-bot who resembles R2D2. Controlled by a Russian mafia, it peruses popular blogs all day (including mine, ha!), insert subliminal messages into them that'll hypnotize you to buy pirated music from their illegal websites.
Help me figure this out! Do you feel the presence of the ever-spying eye? Or do you feel the urge to buy illegal pirated music?
