just a little giggle ....

bear with me .... i'm gonna explain a big ole thing .... and then tell you my oddity ..... 

so .... i have a stat tracker on this blog .... it tells me isp numbers of who came by ... and usually cities, states and countries ...unless you are aol ... then you track through reston virginia and are quite anonymous ..... but really, your isp number means less than nothing to me .... but .... when the same isp pops up from indiana, i can figure out it is jeannie, label her, and then sometimes i'll check my stats and see, oh, jeannie stopped by ... jeannie and i email, she's a pal .... i don't think i'm being intrusive or stalkerish .... but it is a little weird, who else on what other websites, tracks us ....so i know a bunch of things about the last 24 hours .... lynn stopped by ... hey lynn ..... and again, she visits and comments enough that it was easy to figure out what visitor was her .... so she is labeled (really, that's an honor! all my favorites are labeled! are you wondering if you are?) .... and someone from turkey came to my blog today .... how cool is that ... and really, that's all it is .... cool.... it's just a funky groovy thing, that some techy person might be able to work with  ... but me .... it's nothing but fun .... 

so .... now you know about stat tracking ... here's another fun bit .... if the blog visitor clicks a link to get to me, i know what that link was ... if you click my blog line off my email, it says no link ....or if you click me off your tool bar (am i on anyone's toolbar besides maybe a relative?) it would say no link ... but, if you found me at coffeeyogurt or knitresolution   then it says that ....and i do get lots of traffic from those two websites ..... i get lots of links from generic blogger ... so if you click on my comment on some other blog .... and go to my profile, then to my blog, it tells me that ... i get lots of visitors that way too ....

and now the funny part ... if someone googles something and finds me? it tells me what google search they used ..... e.beck.artist gets to me easily .... elizabeth beck gets me and an art therapist ..... google oh! mona ... you'll find me .... and .... if you google, like someone did today, sterile sharpie ..... i am FIRST in line above all manufacturers, distributors and doctors who would use a sterile sharpie .... how weird is that ... now i'm thinking, that if you google sterile sharpie? are you going to find me twice? we'll see ..... 

so ... go google sterile sharpie .... does google self correct .... i have no idea ....then go find what weird thing you can google and find your own blog ....

I look at my blog atats all the time too! Mostly the search engine words that took people to my blog. The most perplexing one was, one day I had SEVERAL hits from serachers who had entered "Elliot's mom", and could NOT figure that one out.

My son (Elliot!) knows he's in my blog, as does his girlfriend, but I doubt they have told others. So, later that night on American Idol, Elliot Yamin did a guest performance and his mom had just died the day before. Ah-ha! That's why people were searching for Elliot's mom!

Who are you rooting for on Design Star? (Thank goodness Tracee is gine!) Are you watching 'The Greatest American Dog'? One of the contestants is a white Maltese named Andrew.

Enjoy the last bit of summer with the young e.becks!

Ha! Another thing we have in common. I find it so interesting.

I must've looked really weird to you back when I was searching for something on your blog I couldn't find, ha,ha.

i don't know what a sterile sharpie is either...is that bad, lol? i am sure that i register as daytona beach, fl on statcounter but on sitemeter i register as port orange, fl. and then every once in a while my ip address changes and some other town in fl will register. People have typed in 'cog tattoos' and my blog came up but that is because of a cog tattoo i created if i were to ever have one which i won't since i have issues with pain, lol.
