from my state – literally and figuratively – and other places. i'm not in florida any more, but i haven't given up the sunshine.

will dublin, cali please stand up?

a few weeks ago i set up a statcounter for this site. it gives basic stats about hits. don’t worry, if you like to lurk i can’t tell who you are … just from what city you’re logging on. (although it is lovely when people say hi)

as suspected, sunshine is visited by a small group of friends around florida, as well as a couple in seattle and chicago. other than that (mostly) there are one-time hits from random places (like dublin, cali). these are people all over the world who i imagine surfing the internet via the blogger *next blog* button – unless blogger has some built-in hit/ego booster that makes users feel better about their online narcissism.

amazing really that we can just scroll through the internet for a snippet of one person’s life, half a world away. but it isn’t all that easy to find interesting pages.

what’s your favorite blog?

note about dublin, ca: statcounter (the company) is located dublin, ireland. is there a connection?

Hi!

I found you. I thought you were this other betsy, but no, you were this betsy. Whodathunk?

What I love is when someone from the same tiny, rural Utah town where your very conservative (but may have a computer?) Aunt lives visits your blog, and then when you ask them to please identify themselves they NEVER EVER DO, and so you just know that your AUNT is reading about your breasts on line and has probably told your grandmother by now and that's why she's looking at you funny lately (as if you were an ickotaw -- my verification word)
