The 99 Cent Chef uses Site Meter to track his visitors (the service is free, in keeping with the Chef's self-imposed budget constraints.) The Chef often wonders who his visitors are: they range from folks in Louisiana checking out the Chef's Muffaletta sandwich recipe to visitors from Germany Googling American soft-porn maestro Russ Meyer and ending up with a Russ Meyer Lemon Chicken recipe (the Chef does provide a movie trailer video clip of "Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill," director Russ Meyer's masterwork.) Site Meter does not divulge names or email addresses -- just city and country of origin; time and length of visit; and how many blog pages were perused. Sometimes a business or government name is shown.
Why would The Pentagon in Alexandra, Virginia go through 8 blog pages? Is an Oxford University student from the U.K. preparing to debate the economic merits of 99 cent cuisine, after 45 minutes on the Chef's blog? Is Disney Studios in Glendale, California, on its fourth visit of the day, laying the groundwork for a 99 Cent Chef cartoon character?
Hmmm, who is watching right now?
In this new video series, The 99 Cent Chef imagines who these curious visitors are. First up is a video on a visitant from the L.A. County Womens Jail. Is the Chef the fancy of an incarcerated man-killer; or perhaps his blog is force fed to prisoners as an interrogation tool to make them snitch? Well, you will have to watch the video to find out what
the Chef and his 99 Cent Players come up with!
