GRACIAS A ESPANA Y A CHUECO.COM: SOY EL "CHICO DE AL LADO"


Happy Valentine's Day!  What better a day than today to talk about our many relationships to the word love.  A current version of that conversation I explore almost daily is through an analytics program that measures the number of people reading the blog each day (an average of 1,500 unique visitors), the amount of time they (well, you) spend reading (an average of 5 minutes), and the number of pages you usually view (somewhere between 4/5).  Now, I'm not Sally-Field-crazy-for-approval, but that measurement, along with comments, emails to bigshoediaries@gmail.com and random "thank yous" on the street are really great ways for me to know that I should keep on keepin' on with the blog.  I have a great time with it and admittedly, it's a lot of work, but it's worth it to know that people are enjoying it.

The statistics are fairly consistent, but every once in a while I see a jump or spike because of a news story or a linking in from another blog.  Yesterday, a huge jump that doubled the daily numbers came from readers in Spain following a gay/lesbian community site called chueca.com.  Referring to me as porn's "chico de al lado" (boy next door), they posted a bunch of classic Colby Keller photos and a short write up of the blog.  I'm constantly amazed by quickly global anything can become in the age of the internet.  So, thanks are due to the folks at Chueca for introducing a new audience to the Big Shoe Diaries.  Oh and, any Spanish readers with contacts at Stag Homme Studios, hook your boy next door up. :)

And a consistent, never-ending thank you and "BE MINE" to everyone who reads and engages in the Big Shoe Diaries.  I'm having a blast and I owe it all you.  Happy Valentine's Day!
