Hi, I'm Liz. I'm fickle.
I did something awful. I made my Statcounter stop including my own IP address in tallying the daily hits to my blog. You know what that did? It deflated me like a skewered balloon (sound effects included). :0) My blog hits went from 120 a day, to 20 a day. Even if you love me like a sister, you have to admit that's pretty pathetic. That's how often I check my own blog, hoping for comment love!
So, a while ago I made my blog public in order to facilitate access for readers, but because I've discovered the embarrassing truth that I am my #1 fan, I'll be quietly slinking back to the private blogging life, with my tail tucked neatly between my legs and my lower lip dragging along the ground.
No really, I'm fine.
*Chief, please tell me you didn't take that chocolate to work with you.*
Oh, while wallowing in self-pity, I almost forgot to invite you all to slink back to privacy with me. If you'd like to come along, just email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post your email address here. I'll leave this post up for a while so as to give you all a chance to commit yourselves to daily Bagel reading. Special thanks to my 20 dedicated readers who single-handedly kept my registered hits from plummeting to zero when I nixed my own IP address! I love you guys!!
