Does your blog ever weird you out?
By ‘weird you out’ I mean, do you ever look at your stats and find out information that gives you the heebie-jeebies? Today I did just that. I looked at my stats and realized that in the past two days, I’ve had a sudden surge in blogs hits. Now don’t get excited, on any given occasion there are more people standing in line at Wal-Mart buying toothpaste than there are people waiting to read my blog; however, I wondered at the cause for my sudden popularity.

I’m ok with anonymous.
I just feel better when you leave a comment and I can associate a human name with a stat. Otherwise I begin to feel like I’m being stalked.

It’s usually funny, but every now and then, it’s unnerving. There have been a few times when exact phrases I’ve used in writing came up. Hmmm…who is keeping tabs on me?
I’m sure you are all aware that if you click on one of my pictures, it will enlarge. Today several people saw my freckles up close and personal.
The amount of hairstyles I’ve been though in the past year and a half shocked me. I think I must have a committment problem, at least when it comes to my hair.
So tonight I am asking that you reveal your true identity, leave a comment, and tell me who you are. I’ll sleep better.
If you don’t, I’ll be forced to borrow my son’s spy gear. I’ve always wanted to become a private investigator, but the fact that they wear wrinkled clothes and drink stale coffee turns me off to the career. Let’s not even mention the big bellies and outdated ties…
