Last year I was jonesin' for blog peeps.
And I found 'em. Boy howdy, did I ever!
I went from having one visitor a day--hi, Dapoppins!--to over 200.
A lot of you I met through cre8buzz. 'Cause, hey, The Buzz is a great place to meet people and increase blog traffic.
(Have invites, will share!)
And some, like my lovely pals, Momma, Dawn, and Amy Turn Sharp, I met through the accursed NaBloPoMo.
(It is a fool's errand! Turn back while you still caaaaan!!!)
I get a few a day who find me through keywords on Google or some other search engine. Odd that the ones looking for "diapered sorority girls" or "dirty woman baking" don't stick around long.
At least the one who found me by searching "old gray and not nice" lasted 3 minutes, though I'm not quite ready to examine my feelings about that just yet.
But in the last couple of weeks, I have been getting a high volume of hits from men in foreign countries through Blog Catalog.
I have no idea why.
BC isn't one of those sites I visit often. I only signed up there so I could snag the widget.
(I'm a whore for widgets. Can't be helped.)
Has this been happening to anyone else? I'm really curious.
Anyhow, speaking of my buddy Amy, a fellow writer who actually writes, she has tagged me with a thought-provoking meme. It doesn't really have a name, but I'm calling it "The Plus One Meme". I think you'll see why...
Name something you do everyday:
Name two things you wish you could learn:
- The winning Powerball numbers a day in advance.
Name three things that remind you of your childhood:
Name four things you love to eat but rarely do:
- Pineapple cheesecake.
Name five things that make you feel good:
- Unexpected discounts.
- Good hair days.
- Jeans that fit right.
- Good lovin'.
- Comments. ;o)
(Did I mention I'm also a whore for comments?)
