I’ve Come a Long Way, Baby. Sorta….

I was updating my stats page this morning and saw that it has been two years since I started keeping up with the numbers. Some things I didn’t start tracking In September, 2011, but picked up later. Just for fun (and so new bloggers can see how these things can grow slowly), I thought I’d post it here.

Some numbers go up and down, such as pageviews. Those depend on how often I post, and what sort of things I post. I switched from Statcounter to Google Analytics in October 2011, so the stats are a little different. The only reason I left that there, though is because of the 5,980 page views in one year. LOL I get at least 1,500/month now.

Well, I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I hope this doesn’t get too long. I may have to make this two posts. LOL

My old desktop needs to be formatted so we can use it. I thought I could do it this week, but I need a disk from their dad and he’s out of town. It does have a huge flat-screen monitor. Bennett is used to using my laptop. He was so excited to see the “new” computer and big monitor. “My computer is bigger than your crappy old computer!” Yes, son. Except you have the crappy old computer, not me. I did turn it on and let him play until it blue-screened. When I told him to turn it off, he put his finger on the monitor button, and asked, “This one?” Don’t laugh. I’ve worked with adults who thought the same thing. I had it on the floor when I first got it out. This morning, I put it on my desk for him. “I need the computer closer.” Still the screen and not the computer, son. I can see this is going to be fun….
