Stop the traffic! Where the heck are my stats?

07 Feb

I’m greedy. Anyone who knows me well, will agree.

I want everything, now. And generally I want a lot of it. So while yesterday I was on statistics sugar high, going crazy over all the sweet candy of my awesome site stats, today I’ve crashed.

I'm sorry Jen, people have just realised you're a fraud. The stats don't lie.

I’m perplexed by the flow of traffic, who it is, how they get here and why today is so dismal compared to yesterday – which kicked ass. I know today isn’t over. But that doesn’t console me. I know that I haven’t been doing this very long, but that only frustrates me.

The Good Jen is saying, “Stop being a baby, your friends have gone ape sh*t about supporting you on this. Just be grateful”. The Bratty Jen is saying “But no-one is reading me today. Whhyyyyyyyyyyyy???”

I’m plagued by self-doubt. Who was I kidding? Why would anyone want to read about my life? Why am I doing this? Maybe I should just delete everything. Well I couldn’t be bothered so I guess I’ll just continue to write about things I’m not sure anyone else is interested in, obsessively check my stats and then beat myself up in private.

(slumped shoulders, sad frowny face).

      LOL…thanks KT. A moment of hyper-sentivity overtook me. Its not like me to be dramatic is it? I don’t care when/where you read me. Just as long as you do. 🙂

    I used to do the same when I had an etsy shop. Checking it obsessively to see how many people looked at my items, how many ‘loves’ I had etc. It’s human nature. Just keep going!

    Have you read much about attracting readers to your blog? There is a science to it.

      Thanks Cass…nice to know I’m not the only the one with these issues. Lol. I’ve read a bit about it but there is obviously heaps more I could be doing.

    I hear ya on the stat obsession… I totally get it! “Why isn’t anyone visiting today???” said in a whiny voice. I take comfort in the fact that RSS feed readers don’t show up in the main stats, and assume that everyone has just added me to their feed reader instead. 🙂

    I just found your blog, but I ❤ it already! Keep up the great work.

      LOL. Feed reader? Something I had not even considered.

      Thank you so much for loving me. Doesn’t that sound weird? And for following me. That sounds even weirder. But I think its awesome that people all over the world can connect like this. I will be checking out your bloggy pronto!!
