I have this handy-dandy little thing called "RiteTracker" in the bottom right corner of my blog. That counter tells me all sorts of anonymous information about how many people access this blog. As a non-technical techy, I find this data really interesting - especially the part that tracks the key words that people type into search engines to find my site. Some examples:
- "HOW MANY YEARS YOU GO TO COSMOTOLGY SCHOOL"
- "Hot moms" (why, thank you!)
- "breast care when weening baby off nursing"
- "infant's face gets puffy after eating"
- "edible paint finish for crib"
- "mother gets hives while breast feeding"
- "integrating whole milk babies"
- "my body is a wonderland"
- "Les zombies et les loup-garous"
Another interesting fact is that all of my readers are not related to me! And some of you don't even know me personally. (If you want to visit someone that does know me personally, visit Lori MacBlogger, a woman I went to sleep-away camp with who has a much more exciting life than I do). In fact, while 86% of you check me out from within the U.S., visitors show up from other countries all the time. And, even if you count my virtual friend Karen, a Canadian, in with the American folks, 10% of you come from other places - Spain, the UK, France, Cyprus, Sweden, Thailand to name a few. So, either moms have the same issues and challenges no matter where they are in the world, or people blindly click on any link that pops up in a random Web search.
Tell me, how did you find me and do you ever plan on coming back?
