I have not checked the stats on my blog lately and just today gave it a thorough look. WordPress offers some terrific programs to check all types of stats on blogs – page views, search engines, links, clicks, daily, weekly, monthly, etc. They offer a terrific summary if you keep track of that sort of thing. I kind of look at it once in a while as I am still doing this for fun and it’s an enjoyable hobby. I don’t really know where I want to take this blog yet but I’m having a blast in the meantime. Discovered some really nice people out in the blogosphere that write some terrific blogs which I follow now. I also had help along the way from a bunch of good friends and fellow bloggers that offered advice and instruction. I really did not know what I was doing! Continue reading 10,000 page views! How and when did that happen?
Well, here we are in NYC waiting for this nor’easter, or blizzard, or squall, or whatever the heck the weather forecasters predicted for today. Winter Storm Nemo? Really? They named it Nemo? Does Disney know about this? Is there a “TM” after this storm’s name? Do they get royalties after each mention of Nemo? Our semi-crazy Mayor Bloombito has all the trucks ready waiting to plow the streets and throw the sand down. I have to give him some props for making sure the city is prepared. Just don’t get caught drinking a Big Gulp while waiting around or the sugar police will come and arrest you.
Speaking of waiting around just where is Nemo? We have been waiting all day here in the city and all we have so far are a few snowflakes, light rain, and flurries. I’m not really impressed so far. I even decided to work from home today since the forecast was calling for this mess to begin early afternoon. Hey Mister Snow Miser – I want a refund!
Hey, guess what? I’ve been nominated for a new award. I have no clue why, other than the fact that someone out there must be obsessed with my incoherent scribble that I write about. Maybe I have a stalker or two. Should I be flattered or scared? Either way, I am flattered and it is an honor to be recognized and nominated for the Liebster Award. From what I gather this award is given to those newer and creative blogs out there, the “up and comers”, that have been discovered along the way by fellow bloggers. Crazy right?
Now here are the pesky rules one must adhere to when accepting the Liebster:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Post eleven random facts about yourself.
3. You answer the eleven questions asked by the person who nominated you.
4. You think of a new set of eleven questions and nominate eleven others to answer them.
Damn, this is a lot of work!
Even though there is a lot of stress at this time of the year the holiday season is a chance to relax and have some fun with friends and family. I’m still doing last minute Christmas shopping, decorating, and all the other duties attributed to the holidays but still find time to blow off some steam and kick back. It’s party time!
