Lady Bracknell's fame spreads
Further scrutiny of the results returned by the mighty Google search engine reveals some gratifying new Bracknell footprints in cyberspace.
- Moleskinerie have produced a rather charming juxtaposition of extracts from this and the redoubtable Mr Chaucer's blog, complete with illustrations; and
- Eheu fugaces .. labuntur anni have done Lady Bracknell the enormous (and completely unjustified) honour of listing her blog under the title, English on-line journalists.
Now, Google is all well and good. But its self-indulgent delights pale in comparison with the simple pleasures Lady Bracknell has enjoyed since, less than 48 hours ago, she followed the delightful Becca's advice and instructed the editor to install a site meter. (Lady Bracknell was thrown back on the expedient of humming quite loudly during the installation process in order to block out the noise of the editor's swearing. Despite her best efforts, however, she is sure she heard the editor mutter something to the effect that nowhere on her curriculum vitae did she claim to have any skills in ****ing HTML coding.)
The results shown on the site meter are so wholly absorbing that there is some risk that Lady Bracknell may discontinue blogging altogether in order to have more spare time to analyse them. She is particularly fond of the "By World Map" page, in which the map is marked with little coloured pins to indicate the locations of her readers.
The search terms by means of which readers have stumbled upon her perorations are also a source of fascination. Although Lady Bracknell cannot help but suspect that her blog must have been a crashing disappointment to whichever individual searched under the term, "ladyship whipping"....
