  1. So where do I find the Blog-Health-o-Meter™? I’ve just gone through the stats links on my WordPress dashboard and can’t see it.

    As for the most read post on my blog, it’s always “how to skin a rabbit”. People find that far more objectionable than “how to pluck a chicken”, which means they send ever more people to the blog so they too can be offended.

    I’m sometimes tempted to drop a literal on pluck and see what happens to my stats…

  2. Hey – it’s an email that gets sent to your email address iirc. Check your spam?

    PS. Poor Bunneh.
