I woke up as a usually do. Made my decaf, checked my email, Facebook, etc…
Then got ready to write my morning post, and I find THIS when I looked at my stats:
I don’t know if you can zoom in on your screen, but that’s 92 view so far this morning! But what’s curious is that there were only 8 visitors. Plus, it’s only 6 am upon writing this post and ALL of the views are from the U.S.
What’s going on??? Who’s been tapping my site? Should I be thrilled? Creeped out?? Looking under my car before I get in to go to work???
I DID go to a great discussion on stress last night and I gave my card to the lecturer… (The content of last night will be the topic of all my posts next week.) Maybe he checked it out early this morning? Maybe I have a stalker. Maybe both- since 8 people did see the site.
But now, ironically, I’m stressed out a little bit.
And I also got a call last night from my publisher, but he didn’t leave a message… I know my book is supposed to go to the printers any day now.
I suppose the only thing is to wait and see.

Hi Jennifer! Did you look at the “Referrers” section? That’s a bit of an indication of where the traffic came from. If it shows a bunch of “Search Engine” hits then i could be you had a particular combination of words that the Google bots found. In the olden days, before Google became so secretive, you could see what the search terms were. Now they’re encrypted.
Yeah… I checked them out. That’s what made it even more mysterious. And every now ant then, I do get a search word that pops up. Usually, it’s 153Promise. I just don’t understand how I could get 25 some-odd hits on my archives page by 5 am… But I’m still new to this game.
