I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m completely fascinated by the Stats Page on the blog. It amazes me that someone pops in from Croatia from time to time, not to mention Vietnam and Nepal – hallo there! And if the person who visits from Barbados would like to give me their address, perhaps I could pop over for a wee visit? 😉
I’m intrigued to see what people click on and whether my widgets tempting people to visit other posts I’ve liked have any effect (not very much, is the answer to that I’m afraid). And I adore seeing that tiny little ‘views’ number grow…
But most of all, I love seeing what search terms bring people to the site. So often I feel like I should apologise for not being at all what they were looking for! So I’ve decided to respond to a few of the questions that have up until now sent visitors away disappointed…

Answer: To the many, many film fans who search for this, I’m sorry. I think we’re talking about different Anne Hathaways, but I hope you’re not too disappointed when you end up at this…

Search term: Carmilla indistinguishability/criticisms/Catholicism/politics (I know it seems unlikely, but that search term or similar has brought hosts of people here from all over the world – I guess the book has become a set text.)
Answer: Just remember that Laura may or may not represent Anglo-Irish Protestantism fearing the onset of Home Rule, that Carmilla does represent Irish Catholicism, Carmilla doesn’t represent Irish Catholicism or Carmilla might represent aristocratic Irish Catholicism, or Laura and Carmilla are actually indistinguishable from each other – two voracious cultures (or should that be curvaceous vultures?) devouring each other. There! The exam should be a doddle now…
