it's a little disheartening that https://flrig.beesbuzz.biz is my most heavily-trafficked site, when I built it as a dumb little shitpost ages ago
https://beesbuzz.biz/ gets a fairly distant second in terms of actual requests per second
#3 is, somehow, the website for Publ itself, which is at least nice to see.
also I don't host sockpuppet.us or blog.sockpuppet.us so I have no direct server stats on that but I do get playcount stats and I can totally tell that folks are just like... listening to the first half of the first song on my most recent album and then quitting
I mean jeeze I get folks not wanting to buy the music but people aren't even bothering to listen to it before deciding it's not for them
for all the talk people have about 'supporting artists' I'm not seeing a whole lot of that support, emotionally or financially
maybe just like at least listen to it all in its entirety before you write it off? the songs cover a lot of ground, both musically and subject-matter-wise
also people are like "sorry I only listen to music on spotify" but the version on spotify gets even less playtime. in the past week only two songs from the album have been played, one time each.
This is the last week of streaming activity across *all of my songs* on spotify
why should I even bother
