The Looking Glass Of Carroll Bryant: Relevant?

A comment was recently posted on The Looking Glass questioning my relevance. Relevance to what? I haven't a clue. I assume relevance to the struggle of which I find myself in where defending myself from bullies is concerned. Or relevance of impact I have with this blog. Anyhow, here is a screenshot of that comment.You will also notice my response.








Okay, so somebody has denied me "relevance" status. I get it. Now, if someone could please tell me WTF YOLO means?

Anyhow, yesterday was the beginning of a very strange and peculiar day for me. As I posted earlier, I was informed that two weeks ago, a couple of strange men were casing me out, taking pictures of one of my cars and my front door. While currently, the options of who those two men are have been narrowed down to three possibilities, another strange event occurred when I requested an officer to come over and take down the information that my witness to these two men was willing to give (You know, just for the record.) and a whole precinct of officers arrived to the scene, like they were on some kind of drug bust or something, when all that was required was one officer. And in this mess of officers that showed up, they were led by none other than the chief himself.

*** Still scratching my head on that one ***

Then of course, I noticed a sudden surge of views on my blog. Almost tripling my highest daily page views record that I got back when I broke the Goodreads scandal. It slowed down a bit about a week after that. The final tally of yesterdays page views was like 603. 

Well, the surge (and mystery) continues into today. To top it off, I figured out why. It would appear that a link to this blog was left on a major news website. Not only that, but I was contacted earlier by this website (which will remain anonymous for now until further notice) by one of their writers regarding the possibility of me doing an interview for them about The Looking Glass and a few of my posts. 

I know! I'm just as dumbfounded as you are!

Anyhow, this explains why the sudden interest in The Looking Glass. As for the attention I have seemingly garnered in the past 24 hours or so, my views to this blog already today has exceeded 900. (And I still have 12 hours left in the day before it starts a new tally.) Check out this screenshot.





As for this interview request? I asked to think about it for a few days or so. I have some questions about what is all going to be involved with it where the questioning and focus is concerned. Like for example, is it about me? Some of the posts? The blog itself? My fight against the bullies? And of course, how personal and in-depth is this interview going to be? So until I get all of that cleared up, and do some more research into this website, I am putting my answer to them on hold for now. 

Then there is also the question I posed earlier in my previous post about what to do with The Looking Glass. All of this sudden burst of attention may just affect my decision. I don't know. It has certainly added extra pressure though. 

Meanwhile, back to the comment I showed you in the beginning. Relevance? Evidently, it has not been denied after all. And not a moment too soon either. I wanted to do some sight seeing on this trip. 

One can only wonder how high those views are going to climb. Is it a sign of things to come? Or nothing more than a phase? I suppose time will answer that. None-the-less, I thank you all for visiting. You are starting to make this smuck feel kind of special. And dare I say ... relevant? O_o

To the amazing readers who have already been coming here, now you don't have to feel so all alone. You see, nothing ventured is nothing gained. Please keep your arms and legs inside the cart at all times. Keep your safety belts attached. The Carroll Bryant Express is in motion and picking up some steam. Next destination - on the map?


I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is .... eh, you know what this is.

  1. The final number on yesterdays page views was 2590. Amazing!

    I haven't seen numbers like that since my attack on GR - when on my other blog, I got 20,000 in a five day period and over 60,000 for the month of July, 2012.

    Thanks guys!
