Stats

Do you regularly check your blogging stats?  When I first started blogging, and had just a few followers, I did check them daily.  I would get so excited when someone would "find me".  They would read back, showing so many page views, and it made my day :)

I haven't been checking my stats lately, and for some reason I decided that I would today. This is what I saw:



Uh oh.  It looks like as of late I've been quite boring!  People aren't interested in reading my blog.  Perhaps it really IS time for a giveaway?  Hahahaha...just kidding. Not about the giveaway, but about having one to attract readers.  That really isn't why I have giveaways.

(ramble, ramble, i'm rambling)



Why is it, do you think, that people quit reading a blog?  I see that around November of last year I apparently became quite "boring" to read as well.  That was when I started seeing TEN again.  Hmmm...

I know I don't tell the most dramatic, "omg..you are never going to believe this" stories anymore.  That probably has something to do with it.  But honestly... those things don't really happen so much anymore.  I'm in this little "rut" of happiness.  Which sounds completely sh*tty of me to say.  I am actually delighted that all is well in all aspects of my life.  No drama!  No heart break!  No sickness!  (well, except for little Louis)

Anyway, I'm going to Orlando for a week with my boss.  So get ready.  There will no doubt be some excellent stories after that.  About how he makes 4 times as much as me, but smuggles muffins and bagels back to his room to take home to his family.   About how he will try to barter with anyone, and always wants something for free.  About how I end up under the table hiding from embarrassment half the time, because sales people really don't all have to behave that way.  Do they? 



So get ready.  Things are going to be getting a little bit more exciting around here:) 

And then there's Memorial weekend.  And then the girl's lake weekend.  And then the lake with TEN's family (EGADS!), and then VEGAS. 




Yea. 

It's going to get exciting around here.

AND...sometime I've got to take a minute to tell you about how I'm going to Spring NYC Fasion Week in September.  And how I've got a friend who is an "insider".  And how he's gotten Barbie & I on the list for some fashion shows. 




And how I already have my outfit for Fashion's Night Out




And how we are also going to the Greenwich Polo Club for a match on a lazy Sunday afternoon. 







Yea.

It's about to get really exciting, daaaaaaaaahling.

I think you're exciting because you're real! Still excited to read about the trips you have coming up!

Laurnie said...

I love your blog just the way it is! And INCREDIBLY jealous of your NYC trip!

Do you have any room left on your social calendar?! What fabulous events to be looking forward to...

My stats are pathetic, but I do it more as a journal for myself and my followers are just a happy bonus!

Looking forward to your travel updates...even Orlando. There is always that one who brings Tupperware to the All-You-Can-Eat!(not moi...but I have been known to steal the mini S & P shakers from room service!)

Why I read a blog has nothing to do with the content so much as it does the person behind the writing. The blogs that I consistently follow are because I genuinely like the person who writes it. Some bloggers don't seem to care much about their readers, I don't like those kind :)
Stat? I don't care what mine are.

kdbar said...

sounds fabulous!! I've never been to a Polo match but think it would be quite awesome :)

While I'm locked away studying in the law library this September I will have to live vicariously through you at fashion week! So jealous!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

wait, TEN again??? I didnt realize he was the same person because I started to read your blog after you had just gone through a breakup. I dont think you are boring. Stats go up and down for me too. I Just get busy and dont read as much now that I dont sit at a computer all day :)

Miss Sweet Tea said...

You are one of my favorites! Seriously, you are in my "favorite bloggers" on my google reader so I always see your posts first! I don't always have time to comment, but I'm definitely reading :)

Fashion Week is on my one-day-someday list. You must tell all about it afterwards! Also I'm a bit embarassed to admit that I never check my stats, which is funny because I do so much analytics and related stuff at work.

Tote said...

I love your blog! Keep up the good work. It is the person behind the blog that we like to get to know as was said earlier.

Wow! What an exciting summer you have planned.
I laughed at the stories about your boss. Hubby often travels with his to Africa. M probably makes twice as much as JDD but he always claims "I have no cash" so JDD pays for everything while their away. On Sunday, they were in Amsterdam for their layover and decided to try the oxygen bar at the airport. Yes, JDD paid for that, to the tune of 70 Euros!

KDM said...

I am a new blogger, and have never seen the stats tab, so thanks for introducing me !

Caroline said...

Twenty years (or more like a week) later, I had to scan the comments to double check that I hadn't already commented on this.

I like your blog, omg moments or no :)
