This is a snapshot of what my inbox looked like…if you multiply this BY ELEVEN!! And I loved every minute of it!

    Congratulations! Isn’t it flattering when total strangers would appreciate your post? 🙂

    Congratulations! You are officially an inspiration for me and my own writing endeavors. I, too, would be happy if I had stats like your ‘before’ stats…so that is my first goal I guess 🙂

    I have only recently started looking at Freshly Pressed blogs, so your post with statistics interested me. First, I noticed that a great read, as yours is, on Freshly Pressed has about the same shelf life as most of my posts: about 3 days. Next, of the 8K to 9K total views that you had, about 400 folks replied (some of the other comments were your gracious attempt to respond to many of your new fans). This parallels my experience, even on my busier postings, in which I might have 100 views and 2 replies (thanks, Mom & Bro). Maybe this fits my hypothesis that bloggers are more introverted, thus less inclined to expose themselves by writing something, though bloggers are obviously wordy introverts, otherwise they would not blog. Thanks for sharing your experience. Back to picking raspberries.


    PS. Are you ready for Hurricane Irene? We used to live in Alexandria and know how the power co. likes to let the lights go out. Here, we have the generator ready, extra gas cans, and the chainsaw sharpened, but just fog in the mountains.


    • Hi, Oscar. Thanks for acknowleding my attempt to respond to all those comments! I set out with honorable intentions, but quickly realized how ambitious that task was. I both read and appreciated every single comment I got, but wasn’t able to respond to all of them.

      As far as the stats, yeah, it is very interesting to study the trends. I just started truly analyzing my stats within the last few months. I now realize how vital this is to growing your readership because you first have to know what your readership is (#’s) and where they are coming from (which sources led them to your site).

      As far as Irene, I decided to leave Alexandria for a few days until this whole thing blows over (pun intended).

    Amazing! I want to be like you when I grow up.


  11. Just so you know, that post was exactly what led me to your blog, which in turn led me to nominate you for The Versatile Blogger Award. If you check out my most recent post on my blog you will find the rules for doing your own.

    I look forward to following you.
