I didn’t look at my blog while I was on “vacation.” Didn’t glance at it at all. Usually, I check my stats once a day to see how many people are reading. But not while I was taking a break. Today was the first day I looked at the stats while I was on “vacation” and boy was I surprised!For most of the days, there were a few reads. Some of them came from a site that I follow that is written by a wonderfully inspiring lady who is fighting Lung Cancer and I had recently commented on one of her posts (her posts are well-written and often funny – you can read her blog Life and Breath: Outliving Lung Cancer – she is also extremely well educated about Lung Cancer, ALK Mutations and treatments). I generally expect that I will get a reader or two checking things out when I post a comment on someone’s blog. But I had 45 views on one day. Considering I didn’t post anything new, that is a TON! It does look like it was on person reading a bunch of postings for most of it, but there were 20 reads of my home page.
So, I’m puzzled. There were 19 reads on another day and 12 on a third day. So, my blog is getting read. That is wonderful! I’m excited! And it doesn’t seem to be one topic they are reading about – they are reading everything.
I hope that you are really enjoying my blog and for those of you who are “new” readers – share it, post comments, “like” or follow. Let me know who you are, or don’t. My puzzlement was a pleasant surprise!
