An Update If I've Screwed Up Your Reader

I know this happens to my Google reader, when someone updates an old post it appears as new.  I've updated a lot of old posts, so if they're appearing in your reader as new, I apologize, but let me explain.

Over the past few days my traffic has gone up nearly five fold.  Normally, I would consider this good.  Assuming, of course, I've actually done something to warrant that, but I don't think I have.  In looking through my stats, I'm noticing nearly all the new traffic is coming from a porn site.  Not just once, but multiple times over multiple days from multiple countries.  I went to the website, for answers only, my wife was well aware I was there, but couldn't find anything.  Therefore, to error on the side of caution, I have removed every picture of my children from this site and they will not be shown here anymore.  I, of course, will still talk of the batshit crazy stuff they do, because it's funny and a huge part of my life, but no more pictures.  Period.

I believe I have removed them all, but if anyone comes across any then please, please, please e-mail me or leave a comment.  In the meantime, go plant something!


  1. Wow. I've noticed my traffic has gone up as well. The two biggest sources of traffic seem to be from IG's page and from a tattoo archiving website. While I can understand the first, I don't understand the second.

    So if I mess with old posts, it appears as new huh? I sometimes toy with removing certain things from old posts, but at this point I'm okay with everything I've done. If the day comes when I need to get a new job, I may be messing with a lot of stuff. :P

  2. Kyna,

    I got the tattoo site about a week ago, as well. Weird. I went on there and didn't see anything either.
