We’ll Always Have…Guatemala?


So far, I’ve enjoyed a nice following of the blog. But I’ve seen nothing like the one day I commented on “The Bloggess'” Beyonce Update post.  Hits on UW went up 500% that day and included readers from Guatemala, Australia, Canada & the UK.  Un-freakin’ real!   I’ve read similar comments from other bloggers who have seen huge spikes in activity as a result of their comments on her page.  One blog, “Filing Jointly”,   hit the 20,000 mark…a number her husband had thrown out there and told her at that point, she could quit her job. (There, F.J.  I just gave you a dozen more hits!)  🙂

That is so amazing!  I’m in awe.  If only my Giant Metal Chicken post had been ready, I might have kept those readers a little longer.  Instead, all they got was a chicken teaser…and they haven’t been back.  (I hate a chicken teaser!  You get your taste buds all ready, and no chicken…boooo….) 😦

Come back, Guatemala!  Where did you go, Australia?  Canada…I know you’re out there!

Man, I’d really like to hit that 20,000 mark.  Honey, can I quit my job then too?  😀

  1. Thanks for linking to my site! ALAS my husband has changed his tune and says I can’t quit until I’m CONSISTENTLY getting 20,000 hits a day, and on non-Bloggess crazy days I’m barely getting a fourth of that.

    Oh well, shall keep trudging off to accounting land until that day never comes.

    Love your blog by the way, have just read every post pretty much.

    • Thanks! I was quite enjoying yours too. It gave me quite a few LOL moments. And isn’t it just like those pesky husbands to dangle a promise and then take it away? Harrumph! Harrumph I say! Keep going…you’ll get there.
