Notes from the Weekend
In the past when I've fallen into a rut when it comes to getting sleep at normal hours and getting enough it, I have been able to crash for a couple days and get back to semi-normalcy. That's no longer the case, because I have what is for me a fairly strict daily schedule. I work six mornings a week for Rotoworld, produce an average of five entries per week here, and write anywhere from 2-5 columns per week over at The Hardball Times. That doesn't count school (which I'm sure will please my mom) or my job at Insider Baseball, which hasn't quite gotten into full swing yet.
I'm not sure why I'm writing about this, since I'm confident that 99.9% of you don't really care or find it interesting, but it seemed like a reasonable thing to do while I sit here at 9:26 on a Sunday morning, having last slept ... well, to tell you the truth my internal clock is so screwed up right now that I'm honestly not even sure when. Wow, what a downer I am. Sorry.

For a while, in the very early days of this blog, the #1 source for visitors was people searching for "Jennifer Aniston's Butt" on various search engines. It was worth like 50 new visitors every day, back when my mom represented about 10% of my total audience. Actually, I just did a Google search for that exact phrase and guess what? AaronGleeman.com is still the #2 search result. I have never been more proud of the work I've done here.
Well, that has all changed. Not only are you no longer asked if you meant to search for someone else if you type in my name, a "Did you mean Aaron Gleeman" pops up if you accidentally leave off a letter and search for "Aaron Gleema." I discovered this because, along with questions about the wives of various athletes, someone found their way here over the weekend while searching for Mr. Gleema.
By the way, a few e-mailers asked me who my favorite singer/group is, since I never really mentioned that last week. Do you want to take a guess? Go ahead, I'll give you a few seconds. Okay, ready? My all-time favorite musical artist is ... Al Green. And it's not particularly close, either. Any e-mails criticizing that selection will immediately be deleted. I'll stand by silently while you all bash John Mayer and James Taylor, but bashing Reverend Al is where I draw the line.
As always, I apologize to anyone whose site I deleted, as well as those people who have asked me for links in the past without me giving them out. In my defense, I think this is a fair way to do things in that the links I do give out have some value or legitimacy, and I have been pretty good about linking to a ton of different sites each week in my "Link-O-Rama" entries. Don't let that stop you from holding a grudge though, because I certainly wouldn't.
