  1. It’s curious, isn’t it, how one can see so many figures on these stat counters and then wonder how they match up to real people that one knows read ones blog? I still look at my stats – both the ‘inbuilt’ on that comes with wordpress.com and the separate one I have, and it’s good to know there are so many people interested but, personally, I’d rather know that there are a few people I can identify who are reading and enjoying my posts. That’s why I love comments, commenting, replies and replying – both in my blog and other blogs. Getting to know people is more important to me than figures.

    I love your blog and you’re a great writer! Just know that!

    1. I agree that the stats are nothing but vertical bars showing numbers. I confess they did excite me initially, but now I look forward to the comments. It makes the blogging world that much closer to real world. I’d hardly expect someone eating my rhubarb pie in my cozy kitchen and going away without so much as a grunt. 🙂

      I posted this analysis because WordPress urged me to. And because I look like I like myself in this picture. And because they’ve used the word WOW.

      Thank you for liking my blog. It encourages me to write more.

    1. If a person has named her About Me section ‘The View-Keeper’, I can’t blame you for missing it! 😉 Thanks for visiting.
