Just a Normal Tuesday

I just thought I'd give you an idea of how my Tuesday went. Everybody likes pictures, so let's go with a picture.

See the rest of the past week? That's how my blog looks every day. I'm lucky to get the person who really loves my Butterfly Moebius on a daily basis. My numbers are small, but at least they're there.

I made my post yesterday. I linked it to my LJ, Twitter and Facebook. I had some time between work and knitting guild and I was thrilled to see I had 2 comments.

I come back from guild and all of a sudden I have almost 100 pageviews. Apparently one of my friends posted about my giveaway on Reddit, which basically led to blogsplosion. (Hi, Reddit people!) By the end of the night (and I stayed up to watch), over 100 new people had checked out my blog. There are 11 entries for the contest. I don't think I got 11 comments last year.

Thank you. Even if you're only here because I'm making you comment to win a skein of yarn, thank you. Thank you for showing me that this endeavor is not entirely fruitless, that I am not completely wasting my time, and that people will do anything for free stuff.

Hah. I knew I couldn't keep it serious the whole time.

There's nothing more rewarding than page hits when you've spent your time maintaining a blog like this.Hopefully you'll get some regular readers out of it!

BTW- LOL at "And people will do anything for free stuff". So true.

Wow! It is fun to see how many page hits you get. I bet you are really snowed out in Vermont.

Knitting guild? I've been toying with the idea of joining out local, but I wasn't sure if that was the thing for me. I should learn more.
