My little site has been averaging more than eighty hits a day for a good week now, and my first impulse, of course, was to congratulate myself for writing such good material. But a look at the numbers put me in my place–the real source of the new hits has been an influx of people running searches for Dante’s Inferno. Apparently the image that I borrowed to illustrate my post on Dante’s Inferno this last summer has become the second image to pop up when one does a Google Image Search for “Dante’s Inferno.” I don’t know if anyone stops to read my little post on that great poem, but a bunch of people have been looking at the diagram of Dante’s journey.
So thank you, Dante searchers. I’m not too shallow to enjoy the increased hits. While you’re here, why not read around some?
