Hits – What do people expect from me ?

Prompted by Kelly’s list of search engine hits on her blog I thought I’d have a look at my own and see what inspires people to visit the old Honorarynewfie.
The all-time record goes to “who said honesty is the best policy”, but here’s a selection of the finest of the others and, me being me of course, I can’t let them pass without a little tongue-in-cheek comment.

how fast are hamsters? – I’m sorry, because of falling educational standards these days it has to be multiple choice… at least a) very, b) not very
ow many miles do hamsters run in a day? – shouldn’t that be “amsters” ?
how far do wild hamsters go every night – all the way, mate, all the way !
how many times does a hamster run on its wheel over a 10 hour period? – Why, specifically, 10 hours ? I’ll tell you 24 hours, you do the maths. (Lazy sod !)

My position on the “Like” and “Reblog” debate

There are a number of discussions taking place here on WordPress at the moment regarding the recent introduction on WordPress.com of “Like” and “Reblog” features.

In the main I have been following the debate on TimeThief‘s blog and through the Forum (until this subject was closed to further debate by the Ministry of Silly Wa*ks), although many other WordPress bloggers have also been up in arms about the way the whole thing was implemented.

Anyway, I think it’s about time I clarified my own personal position with regard to these new features from the point of view of a general user of WordPress and skirting around, where possible, the political issues surrounding the rights/wrongs of Reblogging.

I will address them both individually.
