New Record!!

June 10, 2008

Alright I’m going to gloat a little. I’ve only been blogging since September (or thereabouts) and my record so far was 98 views in one day. That happened on my very first day. It just so happened that both Kelly and Violet linked to me that day, and announced I had arrived in blogland. As they both have a loyal following, I got 98 views. But not since. I hover around 10 or 15 at best. Which is great, I’m happy with that. But I so wanted to break the 100 mark.

Well, apparently I only needed to take off my shirt. šŸ™‚

Yep, 134 views. Makes me wonder what happens if I take off my pants. (kidding) Both Violet and Kelly linked to me again, and I know that is the reason for the high numbers. But I’ve broken the 100 mark, so mission accomplished.

Seriously though, thank you so much for the wonderful comments. Your support means so much to me and I have been smiling since Sunday. The sunburn is pretty bad, mostly on my shoulders, but Rick you are right, I had totally forgotten what that felt like, so that in itself is a new experience. Melle you’ll be happy to know that I picked up two kinds of sunblock tonight.

    Congratulations, Sylvain!! YAY for the sunblock šŸ™‚ That was a terrific post. I think that’s why you got the higher numbers, too; it was especially honest and vulnerable.

    LoveHubbie Mark read your post and said to tell you that it helped him a lot with his self-image. I asked him to leave a message, but he’s not too into commenting on blogs (he just never does it). Anyway, he said it helped him a great deal…

    Yay for freedom,

    You know, Syl, I have taken to avoiding the inspection of the stats related to my own blog. It’s not that I don’t wish to have lots of people visit, it’s more that I know not many do. No big deal, as that was never my goal, but no point in hammering the old ego over and over with the raw numbers!

    That’s a sort-of-serious, sort-of-comedic comment: If you don’t see what you want to see when you look at something, you can either change the object of your attention, or you can simply look away.

    I’m happy for you that you have reached a milestone in visitors here. I can tell you I will be back, over and over, because I really feel a connection and enjoy reading of your adventures, be they fun ones for you or ones you wish you could have avoided.

    It was hard to be locked out for some time, as I let you know! I’m glad you are back on the air, so to speak.
