I Was Just Checking

WordPress has this little program called “Counterize”, which allows bloggers like me to see how much traffic our sites have, and which “pages” are viewed the most.  Every so often, I like to check the stats so I can figure out which of my essays are the most popular.  You know—so I can play to the fan base and that sort of thing.

Lately, the number one and two spots for all time Crab Diaries most viewed pages are, drum roll please, “The Things They Put On Their Skin”, followed by “He Was Just Lucky.”

Well at least I know what MY readership is interested in!  On the other hand, what do I expect, having titled this The Crab Diaries.  Perhaps I need to rethink…..

    • Actually Christi, I am a Sagittarian. But I am married to a Cancer, for what that’s worth. And as for the kids, my Aquarian is the most difficult. Go figure! M.

  3. Reading backward from having discovered your blog a day or 2 ago, my faves have been your Happy Place and the crusty Texan doc. However, He Was Just Lucky happened to be the very first post I got to, after googling Dr. Rosenthal.

    • Vicki, glad you’re enjoying it. Dr. Rosenthal was a unique character–I was privileged to get to know him. As for my “Happy Place”, I think everyone should get to see Africa while there is still something to see–after watching the National Geographic special about elephant poaching the other night, I do not feel very optimistic.
