I’ve read this exact piece multiple times. Not your version — I’ve only read this one once — but the same exact concept has been carried out by different people and for some reason, I keep reading them. I don’t know why… It’s not like you had a misleading title or anything, I knew the second I opened the page that this was another one of those “let me ramble about my stats and post links to my popular posts” things, but I read it anyways.
As the person who wrote the thing, I feel like you’re reasonable informed on the subject: Why do these posts exist? What are you trying to accomplish?
Also, just as importantly: Why do I waste my time reading these things?
