Blog about the Blog

I really like my live traffic feed widget that I put on my sidebar not too long ago. It gives me a lot of information that I couldn't get otherwise, like what posts get the most hits, presumably from showing up on search engines.
The biggest repeats seem to be:
UPS Whoops Fed Ex's Butt
A Movie Called Red
Linux Ubuntu
I got the free widget, of course.


Also I really like the Shoutmix Chat widget, again vit the free one.
it's cool, but not too many people use it, and you have to beware of spammers. On this blog, I don't get any spam, but on my CayTronics page, I get tons and have to delete them daily, which is very very easy. I don't know why I get so much spam there and so little here.....

I just wish people used it more.

AND I love my Shark widget!
If there's something wrong with your computer Sharky can get really slow, and is a good quick performance check.

Blogging is hard, sometimes frustrating work. Sometimes I post a post, then I wait a really really really long time, like 5 whole minutes!!!! Then I come back and look and I STILL don't have any comments, so it's good to have little toys to play with when you spend your days hitting reload.
reload.
reload.
reload.
Waiting for comments!

Have a good weekend!

Hahahaha, you too? I am such a shameless comment Junkie, there are times I actually take my laptop to bed with me, just to check for any new comment should I happen to wake up in the dead of night (how sad am I?)!!

Hubby thinks (okay, knows) I'm nuts.
