Stopping In for a Visit

In June Wendy told me about Sitemeter. Sitemeter is a program that tracks how many people look at a site and where they are coming from. You can’t tell who they are unless you can deduce it from the city but you can see what city they came from and sometimes how they got there, although that is a little hit and miss. She put it on her blog and was enjoying seeing how many people looked at her site and from where they came. On June 3rd I put Sitemeter on my blog. I realized last week there was a chance I might hit 1,000 views in three months. I was AMAZED. Who knew 1,000 people would care to stop by here at any given time and see what I have to say. It has been fun to see what leads people to the site. The google searches are the most fun. Turns out a lot of people want to see what people have to say about traditional gender roles. Who knew? There is someone who reads my blog regularly from Belgrade, MT (who ARE you?!), Cadiz, KY (Hi Karisa!!!! (I don't know why you show up as being in KY - aren't you in Alabama or something? Maybe it is someone checking my blog through yours.....), Colorado locations have started popping up more frequently now (helllloooo Adrienne!), multiple Minnesota locations, of course Spokane, LA/California and on occasion Scottie and/or Shannie must check in because I get some Canadian hits as well and then there are random hits from around the world – UK, South Africa, there were a number of Swedish readers for awhile, Germany, etc. Really only Asia is unrepresented. It has been a lot of fun to see and I am flattered that it took less than three months for 1,000 people to spend a few minutes with me. Thanks for stoppin’ by. You all come back now you hear?

isn't it funny to see who reads your blog? after reading yours I checked my sitemeter and was interested in seeing who all reads mine besides my mom and sister!

I'm so glad you mentioned sitemeter - I just added it to our blog! I've been wondering who reads it...

I wonder why I show up as Kentucky??? We're in FL! And the only person I know from KY lives in Germany! We do know many people from MT though...
