I have had some fun this morning looking over my 'blog stats'.
I've learned some surprising things,
and some interesting things.
Let's explore!

First, I have my blogs that have been big hits in the year 2012, so far.
My number one most popular blog for this time period
(of the past 8 months)
drum drolllllllll......

Brunei: Small country with a long history

I guess there are at least 7,198 people that also didn't know much about

Brunei housing for the lower classes

I found out that people like my blogs on Nursery Rhymes.

I have done 16 blogs that are tagged
'Nursery Rhyme'

Since Jan 1, 2012, my second most popular blog is:
'Nursery Rhyme Time with Hickory Dickory Dock'

2,594 people have looked at that blog!!

If we look at the most hits since I have started doing Nursery Rhymes,
we find an all time high of
10,057 page hits!

You guys really flatter me - thanks!

Well, I don't want to bore you-all too much!

My final stat is
More Easter Egg Fun (4/16/11) which has had, so far,

94,556 page hits.


and I get a page or more hits every day, still.

I am flattered,
and humbled
and excited
and awe-struck
and inspired
you get the idea!

And I couldn't do it without all of you readers!


I so enjoy sharing with you all the thoughts that crowd in my brain,
shouting to get out.
You can see, also, why I am so frustrated with the incredible slowness of writing/posting my blog, due to
internet provider speed?
Blogspot speed?
We still haven't been able to pin down the problem.

Time to stop bragging I suppose.
It was fun though!

Future blogs I am working on:

a series on American Native Americans (USA and Canada),
including Cheyenne, Apache, and Choctaw
Gypsies, and Gypsy Wagons
Language of Flowers - Forget-me-nots and Alaska
the Orange blossom and Florida
the hummingbird (as requested by Glenda)

See you then!
