My friends know that if I don’t care about something, I’m really not going to give it any time. I don’t care about sports. I have no desire to learn about any, watch any, or participate in any in any way. I cannot even act like I care when people talk about sports. I just sit there.
Tech stuff. Don’t really care. I have a phone that does basic functions, and I just recently began texting.
Some of the tech stuff mentioned in blog world, I kind of just glaze over. Learning some of it would take time, and I spend time on things that I truly care about, or are necessary.
I look at some stat stuff, but I don’t really get some of it. I have a Feedburner count, I check my followers, and I look at how many comments my posts are getting.
I tried to install site meter, but I did something wrong, and it doesn’t work, so I have not pursued that any more.
I installed site counter and enjoy checking that about once a month, but like I said, I don’t really “get it.”
I have read many of you out there talking about Google stats and such. I have tried to “google” stuff about this and have no idea what you are talking about.
So, imagine my surprise when I finally discovered by accident the little tab at the top of my Blogger design settings “Stats.” Wow. Right there! DUH!
How much fun was that?! The most interesting thing to me was looking at what my MOST POPULAR POSTS have been. I thought I knew from the comments. I had no idea!
My friends and other bloggers have commented on a very memorable post I wrote – “It’s like a movie!” “It has all the great story elements!” “I think of it often in my own life!” Besides all of those lovely verbal comments, it is the post that has garnered the most comments so far on the blog. Enjoy it again, or for the first time:
Scenes from an Airport, Part 2 (or, Read This to Feel Like a Better Mother)
But, this was not the most popular post on my blog! That would go to:
I am sure that the title has something to do with that. But, honestly, it was so much fun to write, so it must be so much fun to read too! (Thank you, Red Dress Club!)
Then, I just had to chuckle over what was #2 in popularity because my husband was…annoyed…at that post. So, thank you hunny for being great material for us to enjoy!
I was also happily surprised to see the popularity of A Safe Place, which takes a spot right after the afore-mentioned Scenes from an Airport, Part 2. Yet another story inspired by Red Dress Club, this time memoir-writing about a child I worked with who had a significant emotional disorder.
And, in case you’re wondering, YES! There is a Scenes from an Airport, Part 1 (A Cautionary Tale)! It is fun too, but had to give most of the spotlight over to the drama of Part 2.
I had fun discovering this, so I just wanted to share it all with you again!
