Right now I’m extraordinarily happy and that’s a big deal for me. I just did my nightly check of the blog stats before bed and today “Grocery Store Feet” broke the 10,000 viewings mark. Crazy as that sound, ten thousand people (or maybe one person ten thousand times? MAMA!!) have clicked on a link to read what I’ve written. If nothing else shows me the power of what librarians call Web 2.0, this figure does. Ten thousand people read this. That’s more than the population of my home town by a factor of ten. That’s like every person at a good sized university reading my blog.
I know that pride goeth before a fall and I know I’ve just changed directions somewhat on what I’m concentrating on, but I can’t help hoping the traffic increases. Now, I don’t figure I’ll ever be a “Boing, Boing” or a “Lifehacker”, but I wouldn’t mind being a Southern version of a “Blue Skunk”! Maybe I should change the name to “The Blue Possum Blog”?
Wonder what Doug would think about that 🙂 ?
In any event, folks, I thank every one of you who has viewed and read what I’ve had to say and I hope y’all will stick around to see if I get better with time and practice. Until next time, love y’all and remember to scrub your necks and wash your feet.
