So I am still coughing, still weak and exhausted, and still behind on all of my work. I have not written anything on this blog for an entire week. I haven't written anything interesting for at least two weeks. And yet...
I notice at least 5 new followers over there on the side bar. There are 4 more, numerically, 'cause I lost one, too (*sniffle* ... so sad... ), but 5 new faces. Thank you all for coming to my pity party! Apparently, I throw a good party, 'cause you all decided to stick around for more!
Also, prompted by the new faces in the sidebar, I thought I'd check Google Analytics. I don't usually check it often, and I almost never check it when I haven't written anything good, because I don't like to see the "page visits" decreasing with each day that goes by ...
Surprisingly, I'm "up" 11% over last week's statistics. Is that because it's better to write nothing (as I've done so far this week) than to write about a pity party? Or is my pity party post attracting more than the usual number of viewers? Perhaps it was so thrilling that word is getting around about how awesome my site is, and bloggers are telling other bloggers to come visit? (Yeah, apparently I'm delirious now....)
I don't know what's going on, but I am very happy to have you all stopping in to say hi, offering me juice and tissues, and sympathizing with my sorry-ass sick self.
For what it's worth, the archives do contain some fun stuff to read. Feel free to click around a while.
And for what it's worth, I'm hoping to be back in the swing of things by next week. By then I should have some more interesting stories to share. And when I'm no longer feeling contagious, I'll be out visiting and commenting around the internets some more, too!
Meanwhile, thanks to my loyal pals who haven't abandoned me while I'm recovering, and thanks to the newbies -- I'm so glad you decided to come in and stay a while!
Now, all of you go click on those little avatars over there, as well as the links in my sidebar, and go visit my friends. They have awesome blogs, and will surely entertain you very well while I am "under the weather."
