Swinging by a Blog

Lately, i have noticed incredibly high numbers in my blog traffic. (Cheer! Cheer!) Upon further inspection, i note the various countries from which people are visiting.  (Cheer! Cheer!) Then i wonder, "WHY?"  So i look at what is driving them here... and it is the clicking on "Next Blog" in the upper portion of the Blogger Bar. (Cheer! Cheer!)

Hmm... why, do you suppose, is it that folks from all over the world are popping in by clicking "Next Blog"... especially when i discover that most of the visitors to my blog stay "less than 5 seconds?" (Boo! Boo!)

Seriously, there's not much i write on here that can be digested in fewer than a few seconds, so i have to assume that these people in other countries are, for the most part, passing through quite quickly.  Still, i wonder, why now?  i mean, this is dozens of instances in a given week... all of a sudden.

Ah, well, doesn't much matter if they aren't staying around long enough to read some profoundly fascinating tidbit i threw together for the betterment of the world at large. {grin}

Guess i'll keep writing, you'll keep reading, and we'll just wave cheerfully to the Brazilians and the Indians and the Germans as they breeze through on their way to something... well, not more interesting, certainly. ;-)


  1. Angie, I realized I'd never signed up to follow your blog, so I did that just now. :) Your post reminded me that I need to put a counter on my blog. I never did do that when I moved here from HSB.

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm enjoying yours too. :)

  2. Too funny! I'm not from another country, but I did find your blog by clicking "Next Blog"!
    I've enjoyed reading so far~
