Okay, sharing my messy desk with the blog world today, going public here. It's been a busy two weeks, blogging (and visiting blogs) more than ever before, with the exception of the A-Z in April, and despite the holiday. I have enjoyed the conversations at your blogs and learned more about you, as we share our lives and different perspectives, and (always, it seems) offer words of encouragement, but as you can see . . . My husband even pulled out the vacuum cleaner twice, despite the fact I have an i-robot that does just fine, thank you.
Another noticeable difference with increased blogging is that my stats have changed, not the total number of page views or visits necessarily (although there, too), but the audience. I was dealing with a lot of 'referrer spam' before . . . Vampire and 7secrets, to name two. For some reason, the more you blog, the more referrer spam drops off. I'm not exactly sure why or what the purpose of this type of spam is, except that I am told (online) it is nothing to worry about unless you start clicking on the links, which increases the visits (Eeeh....did this in the beginning out of curiosity). Have any of you dealt with referrer spam before?
So . . . today I am celebrating the Messy Desk. Such as it is, it has brought exceeding joy, some thoughtful moments, and a means to doing great things . . . We should always think 'big', right?
