Thoughts on Blogging

I have been meaning to post about my blog lately. I was recently introduced to the "stats" option on Blogger. This may be old news for some of you, but I had no idea this whole time!

For those of you who don't know, you can check your stats here:


So here is what I found when I reviewed my own stats:

My most popular posts:

I'm referred over from awesome blogs such as

(thanks ladies!)

People are led to my blog when the Google things like:

One thing I learned:
If you have seen a website referring your page called pingywebedition, tried to click on it, and saw that the link was broken, no worries: it is just a website trying to make money. Learn more at Unreasonably Unreadable

Last thing I found, I have friends all over the world! Check it out!
(granted, these are views, not individuals, but it's still exciting!)

Anyway, I had a fun time checking out my stats!

Also, I stopped by Kristy@My Heart Stumbles, and she has a great post on How to Be a Better Blogger! She had some real enlightening thoughts about blogging.

Now last, but not least: I wanted to give a big thank you to those of you out there who take the time to stop by my lil' ol' blog!

isn't it cool to see who checks out your blog? i noticed my most popular posts were 3 Ways to Wear posts and a hiding your belly one :) I also found that when I title my post with what i'm wearing every once in a while someone will google and connect with me from there (like when i wore a "green leather skirt" or a "lace jacket.") i did read somewhere you should be detailed and not necessarily clever since that's how you can get traffic.

anyway, blah blah...i'm sure you read it somewhere already. but i appreciate your post and info!

p.s. and YAY! i'm a referring site to you!

I have to admit that I love checking my stats. Especially to see what people googled to find my blog, it's hilarious sometimes. I'm not using the blogger stat thingy though, I use statcounter and I love it!
I hope you're having a wonderful week as well, love! :)
