Interesting analytics

I don't even look at Google Analytics any more, as it became so inundated with referral spam that it was essentially useless. But I do have the site connected to via Jetpack, and it provides some stats in the admin dashboard that I find rather interesting.

The site seems to get a hit or two most days, then will go a couple of days with no hits. Then it goes back to several days in a row with only one or two hits. But for some reason, November 29 saw 44 hits. I have no idea if these hits are people or bots, but I just found it interesting.

What I really need to do is move the site onto my own server so I have complete control of logging, then I'll be able to investigate these anomalies a little more than I'm currently able.
