1000 visitors? REally?

well, to be honest, I'm not sure what to think. I'm not sure if I should be flattered or creeped out. I posted "Who are you People?" and got two responses (3 if you count my mom). Several friends have mentioned in person that they've stopped by my blog occasionally...and of course there are those on my blog roll. So that accounts for about...maybe 20? That leaves 980 lurkers...now I know some of you just can't stay away, and check my blog more than once a day...and I'm okay with that.

But I'm seriously thinking about a blog makeover. I'm not sure I want to go "private", but I'm thinking of going more anonymous. not using names, and changing my blog URL so that it doesn't contain my name. I don't really like googling myself and being led right to my blog. That just seems weird. I know some of you have strong feelings about it...so, go ahead. Give me your thoughts...

ps, I ordered online today, and I can't WAIT to get them. I was hanging out with a gal pal today, and she shared one devotional from "Prayers for New Mothers" by Angela Thomas Gaffey about the challenges of Nursing (yes...lactating, not caring for sick people) and we both got teary eyed!

SO, I also ordered another book by her, called "Tender Mercy for a Mother's Soul". Also looks awesome! can't beat .01 cent on Amazon!! Love that. We're having Great Ideas Day at our mom's group at church and I think I might share about them, if I get them before then.

okay, just got two more hits before I even posted! and blogger is being weird and posted this twice.

Maybe my bean counter spouse would have a good mathematical equation to explain the numerous blog hits....something like 20 friends, each friend once a day....blah blah blah, equals 1000. Who can say. I totally get what you're saying about trying to have a blog and be anonymous. I toy with the idea of starting a blog and then I think through privacy and how to go about it all.
Anyhoo, I enjoy reading your posts, keeping up with life that way.
I's a little better today. He stayed home and we're all sacked out in jammies. My kids LOVE jammy day.
Take care and I'll talk to you later E!

I agree that it is probably the same people checking it multiple times. But who knows, there are lots of weirdos out there! I have heard that cyber-stalking is becoming lots easier bc people are offering so much information freely! My vote is private. Just looking out for you! What do you have to lose by going private? Anyone who wants to look at your blog can email and you can invite them. You are just deterring unwanted visitors.

well, i was just on the thrifty moms sight and clicked to you from there...so if all those girls visited your blog...and then sometimes I come back to your blog to get to another blog...you know, that kind of thing. Face it, Eryn, you are popular. Accept it. Embrace it. Go with it! ;)
