...Okay, so, Mondays are a bad day for people, or is everyone who I hadn't already lost somewhere just having a quiet WTF? about that installment? (It's not so much that Muse is insecure, exactly, it's more of a has a tendency to eat people when not closely observed issue, which is a bad mood to let her slip into around this Project in particular...)

It has been a Monday. In fact, I'd say that Monday's been very unwilling to let me go for the rest of the week.

Also, LJ notifs have been wonky, apparently.

I've noticed that for some serial-fic projects they'll get the most eyeballs when they're posted on a Monday, I guess because people are Bored At Work, but this one's distinctly skewing towards a weekend read for whatever odd reason... Do Basic accounts get to set up notifications for "new entry in LJ X under Tag BLAH", and if so have you been getting any lately?

Unfortunately I'm sufficient of a luddite that I wouldn't know how to set up a notification under a tag; I suspect that is a Paid account perk, yes.

It's definitely Functional enough that I rather suspect that it must be, yeah. {is cynic}

It was Monday, and then it was Tuesday, and Tuesdays are when everything goes wrong in my week if it's going to wrong, and yesterday was screaming frustration at work because of things that went wrong on Tuesday and didn't stop going wrong.

In other words, I read, and then promptly forgot to comment, because I was on my way out the door to work, and work decided to be interesting in predictable but unpleasant ways.

So, maybe later-in-the-week is a better sort of time to post, in the hopes of remembering to settle down with things properly when it's not Mondaying at you...?

Depends on the week, actually. This has been a week of Tuesdays, pretty much, so. But for the most part, actually, I'm more likely to remember to comment if I read it after I get home from work (1030 or later central time). Or possibly on the weekends, but even though I'm home all weekend, there's not promises I'll pay attention to anything, depending on what writing I'm working on.

(Which, considering at the moment, the plot bunny that's decided to latch on again is a shiny little alternate history starting with 1422 and Henry V of England living instead of dying... Yeah, distracted much by the shiny.)

It's not even so much about comments per se as the patterns I'm starting to notice in the stats about how many unique users are actually clicking through the cut to the page-of-entry; late-week will get a trickle over the weekend after the initial spike at posting, but Mondays just kind of go *thud* for a lot of people, apparently...

(And that does sound very shiny. :) )

Mondays in general? No. Mondays just before a job interview? Yes.

The weird thing about Mondays seems to be that if Friday is the day that people have leisure to read, they've forgotten about Monday posts by then, but not Wednesday or Thursday posts. But posts made on Friday are bad too... {sigh}
