I like having a stat counter on my blog. About this time last year, I took it off for a while--but I brought it back because I think its fun to see how many people stumble across it--and its cool to see where they are located and what key terms they use to get to this blog. I also get a kick out of raw data (I'm showing my modest stats background here). Anyway, The last day people googled the following and came to my blog:
nationals female wrestling tournament 2007
classically handsome christian bale
rachael yamagata time machine
tom waits demo mp3
tina fey jason sudekis
As you can see, its a fairly diverse list (and the last one watched 30 Rock last week). Its also fun to see what other people look up on google.
Oh, sure I tease a couple of friends when they get a little carried away about their sitemeter, but that doesn't mean I don't think its a cool site. Well, the past 3 weeks, I've discovered something a little odd. The past year, I average probably 50-76 hits with about 30-40 visitors a day. Nothing too phenomenal. Well, the three weeks, I'm getting 90-260 hits with 60-200 visitors a day. The funny thing about it is my repeat visitor list has declined at the same time. What's perplexing is 80% of the visitors are from google images. I guess I've downloaded several pictures on here that individuals keep clicking on. It's bizarre. So, anyway I feel a little like my little private party has been crashed--but at the same time this blog is online--for anyone to stumble on, and at the same time it amuses me how I'm just wanted for the pictures I post on here. Better than being wanted only for my body. ;)
