picture it. nearly 9 o’clock. hubs and i are ready to get to our monday night shows and i flip open the laptop to just check a couple things while he settles in. i noticed i had a couple new likes on my facebook page and several new pinterest followers during the day. i just wanted to peek in and see what had sparked all the activity.
you can imagine me rubbing my eyes, doin’ a double-take, hitting refresh to be sure…when i saw this statistical data last night. i mean check out that blue bar on the right shooting straight up to heaven! what in the world were people looking at to get over 1800 views on my blog yesterday? 1883 to be exact!
this picture of strawberry plants. in cinder blocks.
this idea that i got from a friend.
pinned over 400 times, just from one pinner alone.
see how many times i’ve been pinned
and this sketch.
the post i did on this sketch of my summer garden had 1139 views yesterday…and 397 already today and it’s just barely 8am.
what in the world? not my fabric button rings tutorial? not my scrapbook pages that i put hours into? or even a post on my mad sewing skills? haha, nope. a picture of pants in concrete. i find it so cool and funny!
and thanks goodness people are clicking around too! some of my other posts are getting high view counts as well, but for some reason, this one’s taken the cake. i’m just in awe, really, so i had to share.
you guys (well, gals really) are amazing friends, readers and commenters. i never knew what this blog would be like when i started it less than a year ago. i never really wanted fame or popularity, but just to meet great people, with great ideas who would love my ideas in return. i’ve gotten that, ten fold. regardless of that for a couple days i might see a spike in views and that next week i’ll go back to a daily average somewhere under 100, you are all still right there. and i’m grateful.
thanks. hugs. smiles.
