I watched three of my friends today. I was sitting next to them, but it was like I wasn’t even in the same room. They were talking about music, and a band I had never heard of. And as I was listening, I just couldn’t focus on the four of us. My mind was drifting away, to a place, where I was among people who talked about blogging. They were using words like; wordpress, return on investment, and website optimization. And, not title of songs I had never heard of. We were watching the statistics on my blog. We were laughing, pointing and discussing; how on earth I had managed to get close to 1,500 broken links on my site.
Then, one of my friends, asked me what songs I am listening to at the moment, and my mind went totally blank. I am listening to music all the time, but I just couldn’t think of any songs. There was a broken connection at that moment, between my friends and I, and that’s probably why I kept thinking about why I needed to fix the close to 1,500 broken links on my site.
My friends were still talking, and I was watching them, thinking about what a broken link really is. And how important it is to fix them not just on my site, but in real life as well.
