The largest percentage of hits I receive on this blog are tick hits. It is humbling to think that my blog may turn into a Tick Blog, when in fact I hate those creepy little Arachnidas! It appears that there’s a group or groups at the U. of Maine that is engaged in some serious tick research. But why me? Am I the Maine ðŸ˜‰ ðŸ˜‰ repository of info on these creatures ? Or is this a Creature Double Feature Scary Tick Trick being played on me by some nerdy college kids picking on the elderly? ðŸ˜¯ ðŸ˜¡ ðŸ˜® ðŸ˜†
(This very post will, I suppose, encourage further tick hits! Why do I do it?)
Update: I was wrong about the U. of Maine group doing tick research. It wasn’t them at all! It was just that my image file included that name because I, myself, linked to that site! Sheesh.. What a dweeb!
Now, I’ve removed the image and my hits will probably drop by 50% because of lack of a tick image.
