Okay, this is just weird.
And notice I didn't say "Tadpoles". I said "People"
[so you are totally off the hook. ::giggle::
Here's the thing. . . .I was talking to a Tadpole today [like, on the phone and all that!] and she was lamenting that she would get 800 page views but no comments.
I felt bad, because her blog is so filled with love and well written. She deserves the comments.
Hey, I only pick the best, right? ::grin:: I did try to explain to her that sometimes people come around, read and just don't comment.
Now, me? I don't read my stats. I hardly know how many posts I have or page views or even where people come from.
I don't really care.
I know many of you do. And that is so cool. I am sure it is a fun past time to see what's going on.
Oh, and I don't stalk. I hate that. And I know some bloggers that will write "I know he/she was here. I saw on my blog counter."
Okay, EWWWW. No. Don't do that. Stalker.
So, back to the conversation with Mish today. I told her the only time I saw how many page views I had was when I published a new post. You get the page that leads you to "View blog". And you can scan down and see. You guys know what I mean right? It's on the right hand side. And I average....maybe 35 or 40 page views a day. And sometimes I get a half dozen comments. I might get 10 or 12. It depends.
As much as your comments thrill me [they do!], I am not a numbers gal. You guys know me and I just love that my friends come around to read this dribble. And cheer me up and give me advice when I am failing in the whole mother/wife/life thing.
I love you Tadpoles.
Still. I don't count anything.
Wait for it. . .
But.....HOLY STAT COUNTER BATMAN
Y'know the post I wrote about the "pre nup" - the whole "I can't have a swimming pool, but he should've asked for me to be musically uninclined?"
Tadpoles - I got 354 page views on that.
You would have to add the entire month of "I Make Soap" June views together to get that many page views.
And that? That's just wrong.
I know "Pre Nup" was in the title, but really? C'mon.
What is this world coming to? It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
And Mish? I swear. It has always been 30 -45 page views. I was as shocked as I know everyone is right now.
It's not the greatest week right now for me.
But I am trying.
Smile Loudly. Being alive is a gift. xo Janine
