You could call it an addiction.

I check my site meter a lot. A WHOLE LOT.

You can learn a lot from your site meter.

For example, I find some of the googles that have brought folks to this blog very, very fascinating. Comical even.

Most popular ones-

"Meatloaf fixins"


"Southern Manners"

"Cupcake Carrier"

"Octopus Stinkhorns"

Here's a bit of info for you Meatloaf Fixin' folks. Hunt's has changed the name to "Meatloaf Sauce" or something like that. That's why it is so hard to find. It still comes in the can and it tastes the same. Hunt's is just getting all uppity on us and dropped the "fixins." Although I don't really think you can get uppity while eating meatloaf.

One of my favorite googles was "Do women in New York wear pantyhose?"


Another part of sitemeter that is very addictive is the feature which shows where y'all live. (Well, where your internet connection lives.)

For some reason, whenever my Shreveport, Lousianna reader logs on, site meter lists Shreveport in all caps like this:

SHREVEPORT, Louisianna

So, I always read it like it is yelling Shreveport to me.



Have a wonderful weekend, stinkhorns and all.

Ooh! I love my google analytics. It tells me all those cool things. I am addicted and check it daily. I can't help it. I'm still surprised that anyone besides my mother would want to read my ramblings anyway. Have a great weekend!

Okay first off I want to know which post brought the google "Octopus stinkhorns" over to you!

I like to read the googles too and where people are from. But I go in waves. Sometimes I check everyday and other times I don't check for a couple of months. The google I get almost daily is "40 clove garlic chicken".

Now I remember that post! Yes, I remember now that I made a mental note never to poke at things with a stick unless I knew what they were.

I love my sitemeter, too. I always get excited about the number of visitors to my site, until I check the locations and discover that half of the visits were from my mom.
