Ah-HAH!! Just what I always suspected [Jul. 31st, 2006|10:49 pm]
spinthemoon
You may have noticed that I now have a nifty little map up there at the top of my page. This is not just any map - it's also a site counter. So now I have proof of what I already suspected: no one is reading me. Not only does the map show me how many people are not reading me, it shows me where they are when they aren't doing it.

Before you start rolling your eyes - and you know you were about to, admit it; I caught you mid-roll - this is not necessarily a bad thing. Sure, I would love it if zillions of people read my blog. I mean, I must possess either a pretty healthy ego or a pretty unhealthy need for attention to even have a blog in the first place. 

But, not having thousands of readers is good news, because it means this blog is all about you. Yes, you. Because I'm not writing for millions; I'm writing for you. Because you're the only one here. 

And all this time you thought it was about me.

Does it also work when you're read on a friend's page? Because I rarely to never read entries in a journal, almost always my flist.

I think maybe it counts you, but thinks you're somewhere else.

I read from my friends page too. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

I read you thru Attensa, an RSS feed linked directly to my Outlook. I'm not sure if that counts on your "counter" either. (Leticia)

I'll have you know that when I clicked on the map, I got a "account overload, try again later" warning.

Re: Hey!!!!

Yeah, will this Anne doesn't have any dot's near her neck of the woods. Maybe it's because 'neck of the woods' isn't on that map?

Annie-The drooly dog Maine one.

Hey! Wait a sec! I know you have at least 2 readers in So Cal, me and Kam so why the very smallish dot when we're representin'? And what's up with Anne's dot? Looks like she's in New Hampshire!

I always assume it's "about me" until informed otherwise. ;o)

Is that me?

Way up in the corner? According to that I should have a Boston accent. I look like I'm in Portland or Kittery. Which...as only YOU would know, isn't Maine, it's just a commute for Professional Suburban Bostonian-ites.

Spin The Moon has a fan in Birmingham, AL! Been reading for quite some time, I'm just not one to comment often. Since you went through the trouble of adding the site map/counter and all, I figure you deserve to know who we all are.

Also, just so you know, I've tried a few of your recipes. My family's favorites are your Rosemary Chicken and Porkchops ...or Chicken. Yum-O!

Take care!

Hey you!!! I tried to track you down through an old guestbook entry a couple of months ago but managed to miss your LJ completely. Do you mind if I friend you?

CooL! Feel free to do so.
Actually, I found LJ through your website. I've kept a journal at AOL for a few years but my non-aol friends and family can't access it much of the time. I've grown attached to LJ, although my presence has been unknown.
