35,000 blog views so far – but the paper clip is King

My weekly sitemeter blog monitoring email has just arrived announcing I have reached 20,271 page views and 16,200  visitors since I started blogging a couple of year ago.

For reasons too complicated to go into here, I maintain a duplicate copy of this blog at http://britishlibrary.typepad.co.uk/inthroughtheoutfield. And this has generated 14,722 page views and 10,344 visitors respectively.

The reason for mentioning this, is the surprising discovery that the most popular story on my blogs (by a factor of 4) was the one about the humble paper clip from August 2007 The not so simple paper clip. I have spent some time trying work out why this particular story has proved to be so popular, but remain bemused.

Equally confusing is why British Standard for a cup of tea – BS 6008 is second on the list.
