Sitemeter a Quick Observation

Not a lot of time or effort today. Will do another American Legion District game tonight at 7 at Van Wert. The season, is winding down for me....today will mark game #80 that I've gotten in since High School scrimmages began in back in the 3rd week of March. My back has held out for the most part, lost a few pound, and put a pounding on my legs...but it looks as if I will head into football officiating season no worse for wear{a big knock on wood}.

Many folks that author blogs choose to subscribe to Sitemeter*....it's a free service, unless you choose to go with the premium service, then there is a small cost. The freebie works for me. Sitemeter let's you know how many and from where viewers you get a day, week, month, year.

Many "hits" are just bumps in the night, some new folks stop by and read your rants, and the old reliable bloggers in our small clickers, stop by on a daily basis.....all-in-all it can be an ego booster or buster.

I like going on a few times a week to see where people are from, and what they are looking for...over the past few weeks, I have pretty much picked out the very post and photo that gets hit on more than any other{except the daily drop-bys}.

And the winner is: The photo at the top of today's post....the 1920 era photograph of my great-aunt and her husband, on their motorcycle with attached sidecar. Photo was taken in my original home town of Scott, Ohio, and as I said, although no date is on it, my guess given the clothing and vehicles, it's from sometime around 1920. This photo is a favorite among the Euro visitors....and at least 4 or 5 times a week, someone from overseas gives it a view. It was originally posted on December 4, 2007, when I was in the middle of "My Back, My Back" phase of last winter.

OK, that is the big kahuna for today.....hopefully something more scintillating on the next one.

back later>>>>>>>>>>>>

That's a great shot. I've got a few old shots like that showing folks in buggies, but not motorcycles. It's too cool.

I have sitemeter but I don't look at it much these days.

I live in Site Meter. I find it fascinating, especially the referrals. I'd also recommend the pay version, Pat. Five bucks a month is cheap when you consider the additional detail ya get, plus the fact there are NO ads. I've been using the pay version for nearly two years now... since my first blog-o-versary. I won't go back.
