As all of you folks know, these blogs also provide the writer with stats relating to viewership--just about everything, except your name, city, email address--only an ISP number which tells the country, and a bunch of stuff about your operating system.
Well, when we left Oregon in October of 2007, we figured that the only people who might read the blog were our old friends, who might want to see how we were doing. We have been mildly astonished that hundreds of other folks are logging on, also--and we are truly flattered that you choose to stay with us.
Now...a funny thing happened to the readership, beginning two weeks ago. That was when we started talking about the problems we were having with high waves eating up our property, and what the State was doing to help us fight back. Also, we had three days of describing what fun Brian and Shelley were having during their visit.
During this period we have had an increase of 650 unique readers added to our 30 day running stats...
If you log on every day to see what is new with us, you will only be counted as one reader in each 30 day period. So, you can see that 650 new folks signing in, is truly mind boggling!
We got about 100 referrals from blogs by Chuck and Nancy, Cuenca Hi Life, Rich and Nancy, and Brian and Shelley. The other 550 folks came from direct log on and direct email.
There might be something in the water, or "you really like us!"--In any event, we are flattered and welcome you, and we promise to try to keep it interesting!!!
