Ok, maybe that is a little melodramatic, but it sounded better then I’m a little disappointed. The bubble isn’t completely burst, but a little deflated.
As I have blogged before, I am fascinated with my blog statistics and how rapidly they have climbed. I am hoping I will go over 8000 views today (1 Apr 12).
In my mind, I had the ego inflating idea that it meant that I had thousands of adoring fans all over the world. I was a writer/photographer extraordinaire…ok, I didn’t actually believe that; but I did believe I had thousands of people looking at my ‘stuff’.
Well, I was informed today that the key to getting a lot of views (& hence why my numbers are so high) is that I post a lot of pictures in galleries, which requires lots of clicks to look at them. Bummer, that means I have like 6 people looking at my stuff & each of them have clicked about 1200 times. That is not nearly as ego inflating or impressive. In fact, what if it is only my wife & my mom looking at this thing & they have each clicked 4000 times? That’s depressing…but thanks Kate & Mom for doing all that clicking, it made me feel important and interesting for a couple weeks.
Oh, thanks to the other 3-4 that might be looking too 😉
