The other day Harper was discussing with me the statistics of our little (and quite dormant) blog an arm & a leg. I didn’t think much of this. My sister Kerstin has a little map on her blog showing where her visitors are coming from. NBD. A lot of people have those.
Today my sister Kiana and I were discussing how some people have secret stat counters on their blogs and it finally dawned on me. There’s a good possibility many of my friends and non friends may have this sort of secret stat counter. Why didn’t I realize this sooner? I know not. I’m not really sure what those stat things entail, but what I do know is that if you have one you must all think I am some type of no life obsessive psycho for the number of times I may visit your blogs in a day.
Let me explain myself. Of course the blog feed may tell me when you post something new, but what it doesn’t show is when you get new comments on your posts. Half of the fun of reading your posts is reading what other people have to say about them. So yes, I might look at your blogs again and again and again even if you haven’t posted something new just to check if you have new comments. So maybe I don't have much of a life...but knowing that I am checking so often simply to watch for comments makes me seem a little less crazy, right?
Phew. It feels good to get that off my chest. I’ll try not to stalk you guys so much, but I can’t make any real promises. You are all basically celebrities in my book.
