Sometimes I wonder if the ability to track daily blog traffic is a blessing or a curse. The silly little graph pops up everyday to tell me how many people visited my site, and to be honest when it’s a low number I kind of feel sad. Why? Why do I feel this way??
I think that having a daily reminder of “traffic” is so easy to get sucked into. I forget that I’m writing this blog for me, for my family, my friends, and any new friends I a meet along the way are simply icing on the cake! So, why do I find myself reacting to these silly little stats?
Then something really weird happens, like on Tuesday for example, 70 people viewed the site! Yes you read that right 70!!! I was shocked! Apparently there are a lot of Fall lovers out there who love comfy boots & Starbucks as much as I do But seriously, I don’t get it. I’m honored, and I’m excited to think that people would take time out of their busy lives and spend a few moments reading about mine.
So, I’m trying to remain focused… I need to not let these silly “traffic trackers” get to me. On days where the only person that stops by is me, that’s ok… and on days where lots of people come to hang out, that’s awesome too! I’m just excited to be capturing these days of my life and preserving them in a way that I’ll have to look back on in the future.
That being said, if anyone in the vast world of internet blog space is reading… please say Hi, I love new friends
