Home Story: My "hits" counter

At some point I put this little counter on my blog just to see if people were actually reading what I wrote. Every once in a while it's fun to go check it and see just how many people visited my site that day. I noticed a couple days ago I was getting close to 1000 but thought I'd wait to celebrate, thinking it would take another week or so to hit it. It happened when I wasn't looking! I just looked again and it was 1028!!!!! Apparently yesterday I got 25 hits! Now from what I've read at other blogs, this would be a disappointing day but this wonderful to me. If I am ever disappointed in just 25 people reading what I write, I will shut this thing down. Not sure why there are days when no one reads and days when what I say is fascinating because I can't figure it out. The best weeks I;ve had were the week of March 15-21 and November 30 - December 6. I can only guess what brought people those weeks. In that first week of December I wrote about New Moon (bashed it actually), We the Living, and had my second ever Friday 56. It was a big week!! In that week in March I wrote about Aurora and Lucina in separate posts as well as participating in more than one meme and my review of the Secret Life of Bees. I don't think I could keep that kind of output all the time to have weeks like those. I don't think I would be happy trying to keep it up. But I'm happy when I feel like it and people come to read it. Thank you all!!

Congratulations! I think 25 is a good day, especially if you are relatively new :) As for why some weeks are better, it is a mystery :) Just keep doin' what you're doin' and the people will find you.
