I have been reading about how some blogesses (blog-goddess: new word!) have been able to track how people found their site.

I was intrigued, I wanted to stalk the people lurking around the blog world (all three of you who come into my part of the blog-o-sphere).

So, I found sitemeter, which is a free service that lets you know how many people come to your blog, when, how long, where did the visit, where did the come from, where did they go after, and where they are from (no surprise, most of my readers are from the south, woot!).

But there is a true intrigue among my new obsession of checking on you lurkers...

There is someone who hails from the website: kushnerco.com. This person has been on A LOT! Has read a LOT of my posts, and spent some significant time on my little blog. I have looked at the website and it is not something I recognize...but it hails from Ann Arbor!

I got worried...I HAVE A STALKER! I have confirmed those worst fears of anti-bloggers (cough, my husband) and gained a weird crazy who is after me!!!!

Then all the sudden it dawns on me...what if I am stalking myself?!?!? What if sitemeter.com is not terribly reliable? Sometimes you only see service providers like several of my readers evidently subscribe to Cox (go South!) and Comcast.

I hope I'm not being stalked by a crazy but I also don't want to be stalking myself. One is scary and one is sad...

So if you, Kushnerco.com, could stop lurking and show yourself...I would feel a little less pitiful. If I don't hear from you, I will assume that I am stalking myself like a true loser...but it sorta fits so I won't be surprised.

However, I love the fact that 3 people have found me by googling the lyrics to an Aaliyah song and stumbled on a this. I feel very street.

Can you say, "Alex's new obsession!"

You are hilarious! :) I am sure all is well and someone is not stalking you. They probably like your humor.

Have a great weekend, babe!

To to funny! I love the site meter thing too. It allows me to think, yes, there are people really out there subscribing to all my ramblings and nonsense. I love it. The fmaily totally ignores me, but there is someone out there in cyber world (aliens?) tuning in?
If I come up missing, U-F-O!

Oh Alex, it's you. I see you on my sitemeter too!

I'm laughing because I'd be willing to bet ALOT of money that it's YOU! How can I be so sure? Because I did the same thing too! :) Sitemeter does have a box you can check though to have it ignore your computer's ip address...

Kushnerco is Ave's server, near as I can tell. It means you have a LOT of stalkers at Ave.
