210. Eye opening numbers hah

Friday, November 04, 2005

I didn't think I'd make it here today. I'm feeling a bit under the weather, and I have a lot on my mind. I wanted to pop in real quick to share a little amusing story. Well, it is amusing to me in any case. This morning when I came online, i went to check my site's hit counters, and my eyes grew wide and I sat there in shock. Somehow in the hours between 6am and just a bit afternoon, my sites had over 1000 hits. I had no idea why, and I started to investigate because I'm so not used to those type numbers, not even on my review site. At most that has gotten 500 hits in one day, so that doesn't surprise me anymore. Well, after a bit of searching around, I quickly discovered the source - a new hit exchange I joined yesterday. they had a deal with giving 5,000 hits for those that joined yesterday, so I decided to put my sites up on there exchange. Well, the 5,000 hits were added this morning, and used ail this morning. No pause feature or a way to hold them back and allocate a few at a time as most exchanges do. So my sites were seen A LOT this morning.

Speaking of traffic exchanges, I added another blog exchange to my review this morning Blogmad. I received my second newsletter from that site last night, and I tried to log in. I couldn't, so I emailed the admin address given on their site. I didn't expect to hear back until today sometime, but within 20 minutes I heard back, and over the course of the hour the help desk figured out the problem, and I was able to get into the site. This site is in pre-launch at the moment, but I have a good feeling about them. Check them out on my review here. Speaking of reviews, I have reviews of both last night's ER and OC on my review site. Check those out by using the link on my sidebar.

Ghost Whisperer is about to begin, so I'm off. Have a great night everyone.
