After closing the shop I hurled myself headlong into beefing up my website, adding as many products as I could that I still have on hand. I spent a lot of time on the website and starting writing blog posts again, just working away.
Like a lot of you I use Statcounter to keep track of how many people are coming to both sites, and from where. And as I was working so hard, of course I was keeping an eye on the stats to see if my hard work was paying off.
Suddenly it seemed that no one was reading my blog any more. Few comments, and no visits showing up. I attributed it to summertime and kept plugging for a while but nothing seemed to be happening.
Of course, depression ensued, with lots of handwringing and hair-pulling. Why oh why am I working so hard, I thought? No one cares. *sniff* Poor me.
So I concentrated on other things, house cleaning and organizing, weeding out old belongings, that sort of thing. And virtual farming, of course. Seemed like others had slowed down a bit on blogging too, and I was bad and didn’t read my favorite blogs and comment on them like I used to. If the blogging world was taking a break, then so was I.
Fast forward to a few days ago when I started thinking about the lack of visitors again. I was showing zero visitors for a couple of months, but there had been a few comments left so that couldn’t be right, could it?
I guess you’ve figured out the problem by now, you’re surely smarter than I am. That’s right…I had accidently deleted the Statcounter code from my blog. Duh…stupid!
So all the handwringing and self-pitying was for nothing. You had been visiting my blog, there was just nothing for you to read! LOL
Now I’m back on track, writing drivel for you again. Enjoy!
And here ends Excuse #2 for why I haven’t been blogging.
