I added a new feature to my blog. If you look down at the bottom of the left hand column, you'll see a little logo labeled "Sitemeter." I added the service because I was curious about my huge audience of readers out there. And because it's free. Now, don't run away. I got the free version, so you're not busted, I still have no idea who you are, beyond those that comment (and I love your for it), and my family who tell me they love my blog, but are too shy to comment. Basically, Sitemeter tells me how many people visit a day and the area of the world that they come from. So, it tells me that most of my readers are from various parts of the U.S. or from Denver -- which could be anywhere within a 100 mile radius of the city. That's my family. (little wave to the family). My biggest surprise was how many people actually take time out of their day to stop in and pay me a visit. I was shocked. Yesterday, I had 2 comments, but almost 40 visitors. Wow. Now, I'm speechless. Literally. I've never felt comfortable speaking in large groups (that would be any number over three, counting me). So, I'm feelin' a bit of stage fright here. Sitemeter also tells me how long people stay. Imagine my surprise to learn that one visitor was here for over 16 minutes. "Sixteen minutes!" I said to Hubs, who was sitting at the other end of the couch. "I guess I really hooked him." Silence. "Unless they logged on and then had to go to the bathroom," I laughed weakly. "I wasn't going to be the one to say it," muttered Hubs. Another person came all the way from the other side of the world, from one of those countries I can't pronounce. "I have an international audience," I said, all puffed up. Silence. "It's probably the same guy who has been e-mailing me, selling Viagra." Wherever you're from, if you stop by for less than a minute, if you pop in and then nature calls (I'LL TALK LOUDER SO YOU CAN HERE ME IN THERE), or if your goal in life is to solve erectile dysfunction. I'm pleased and honored that you stopped by.
