I don't check stats very often, because I'm not in this to become a "big" blogger (whatever that means... I guess an appearance on Oprah? Ugh, I would be too nervous and would make an ass of myself, anyway). I am not a social climber. No, really. I'm not. I know that it seems like someone who blogs would be a totally narcissistic person, putting the minutia of her life out there for the whole world to read for attention, fame, and fortune. I know there are people who blog because they want the recognition, but I'm not one of them.
Honestly? I just really like to write. And I like the idea of having a record of my kids' childhood.
Occasionally, I get curious, though. I just looked at my feed stats and my Sitemeter stats, and it seems that when I threaten to put my kids on eBay, there are 300-500 of you out there reading about it, which makes me say...
I mean, Dooce farts and gets more traffic than that in a nanosecond, but for me, that's a lot of people.
I'm pretty sure I'm related to 299 of you.
Can we play a game? Just for fun? If you're reading this, will you just leave a one word comment? I don't even make you do that annoying "Captcha" thing. Just leave one word. It can be anything... How you're feeling, what your dog's mood is, your favorite word, your favorite color... It doesn't even have to be English (Hello recent Peruvian visitor! You so totally rock!!).
Even if you're related to me, leave a comment. One word (or more if you feel like it).
And hey, if you link to your blog, I promise to drop by and say hi. Ok?
