What the fuck?

Something odd is happening. Twenty-one people showed up here within the last hour.

Now for those of you with monster blogs, that's probably no big deal, but over the last few days, that's about how many people have been showing up here a day.

I'm not much of a blog traffic whore, but I do keep an eye on it from time to time. And the traffic really fell off when I was not posting very regularly. So, where did all these people come from? There are a bunch of different referring URLs, so I can't determine any particular pattern or cause.

It's a blog invasion!

I'm beginning to feel violated. Hey, get that probe away from me.

What do you mean, bend over?

This happened to me too a while back and since I usually only get four or five visitors a day, I was like, HUH??? I think it has something to do with the Blogger bar on the top of the screen - you can click through "next blog" and end up on random blogs. Yours must have been on The List for an hour or so. Congratulations! :)

LMAO! Yes, G-man, take it like a man! I know you can. (hehehehe)

Besides you should be celebrating the extra traffic, not looking for some hidden, probing meaning in it... (hehehehehe)

For some reason this post just has me giggling and giggling... too much coffee maybe...

I've been lurking; now I'll come clean. I also am a Salem, OR., writer. I'll be back to see what I can learn, G-Man. Keep smiling.

this hapens to me every once in a while - i find that its usually tied to your site getting into the list of "random" blogs that appear when you hit the "next blog" button on the blogger toolbar at the top of the screen.

sorry it isn't anything more exciting.

Yes, ladies, I think you are right. The blog traffic is back to normal today. Fifteen visits so far, nothing to write home about, but 5 comments out of 15 visitors is pretty darn impressive! Even Ol' Hoss came out of hiding to post.

But Hoss, I think I have much more to learn from you about the written word than you do from me. But it's always nice to meet my new neighbors!

I've been a lurker of your site for some time. Your geography is vastly different from mine here in St. Thomas. I enjoy reading your site. Glad to see you are posting more frequently. During the move I lost track of you somewhat. In the past week I've been back every day!

From the USA Virgin Islands Enjoy your New Home!

It's only violation if you object.
