As I’ve written before, Brooke has installed something really cool on this site that keeps track of statistics. My favorite part of this is called “unique visitors” - a list of the last 20 people who have visited the site. No names or email addresses of course, just the time you’ve checked in and your flag. If it’s the U.S. flag I can click on it and find out the town you’re in (but not the state), and if it’s a foreign flag I click and find out what country you’re in as well as the town. This is amazing! The last list of unique visitors that I just checked included flags from Osaka, Japan and West Pymble, Australia, and London, Canada and Cold Brayfield, UK. In the U.S. vistors have visited from Wingdale, Chicago, Moraga and Montebello.
My friend Billy Mernit in a post last winter called his readers who didn't comment or check in “lurkers”. But I think it’s about: 1. not knowing the mechanics of commenting or subscribing and 2. a kind of shyness people have about writing in public. Or maybe, as my friend Nicki says, people are just too busy to do anything but a quick read of the latest post.
But I’m curious. How did you find us? And why? You don’t have to use your real name or email address. Just let us know how you got here and anything we can do to make the site more user friendly for you. You can e-mail us at: StuartandCharlotte@yahoo.com
