5000!

Today I hit 5000 unique visitors on my blog for 2008. Lately, I've been checking my sitemeter traffic on a daily basis. It's been interesting to see how people find my blog through Google. Today someone searched "pilot in airplane with brown curl hair about age 20" and got me. I have people from Olmstead Falls, Duarte, Denver, Naperville, Quebec and other random cities that follow my blog pretty regularly, but I don't know people in those cities.

I started blogging approximately 7 years ago. It was back when you had to explain to people what a "blog" was. Back then, I wrote much more openly. I probably only had 3 people a month that read the blog, and those 3 people already knew the details because they'd talked to me in person. This blog actually still exists, but I can only think of one person who would be able to track it down. I kinda miss the days where I could spill my guts without worrying that my coworkers bringing it up the next day. I have thought about going private, but then I'd miss out on the mystery of my sitemeter traffic.

Someone recently told me I should rename my blog to "Stranger than Fiction." What do you think?

Can you explain to this newby how to set up something to track my blog? I've seen some, but don't know which I should use.

There are a couple to choose from, but I prefer sitemeter.com. Follow the directions on the site, and if you still can't figure it out, call me and I'll walk you through it. In fact, you could call me just for fun.

Hi,

I am the one from Olmsted Falls, OH! I found your blog through Partner of a Pilot. My DH is a pilot for Continental Connection. I enjoy reading other pilot's wive's blogs!
