After posting my last post, I took a look at the statistics for the blog.
I found that, on August 25, the blog had received 455 page views.
For some blogs, that might not be out of the ordinary. But this blog is only read by my family and friends, and then only when I specifically instruct them to. On most days this blog gets at most one or two page views.
I must assume that this one outstanding day was the result of the actions of a bot. I don’t know that the purpose of the bot was, but perhaps it was to make obscure bloggers feel good about themselves.
