One of the regulars at my main site left this bit of grumblement over there:

Every time I post something new a page appears where they try to make my blog “popular” by “publicizing” it. (Sorry for the scare quotes; it’s the mildest expression of my contempt). I’m not sure if they are hinting at my wasting their precious bandwidth with so few followers or they are simply nosy busybodies.

I have about 5 percent the wordpress.com traffic that she does, so this is basically a test to see what, if anything, they will suggest for me. (The title means nothing, particularly: this post has ID #225, and before I’d inserted a title with words and such, they’d already fabricated a permalink.)
