Today is a special day! My blog has over 1,000 views!
How do I know this? Blogspot has a 'Stats' page where I can keep track of how many people view my posts on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. I can also see what sources they are getting my link from (mostly Facebook of course), the number of people from each country who are viewing, and from what operating system (Mac vs PC is about 50:50, Mac > PC). I check the stats often to see which posts are most popular and how many views I get each day. I was very surprised when I found out that my blog had so many views! I didn't expect it to become so popular so fast! Maybe part of the reasoning is that whenever you put a link to anything on Facebook it appears on all your friends' news feeds. Even if someone doesn't know you very well, they will follow the link if they're bored enough. Although I'm sure that my friends and family are viewing out of curiosity and not boredom.
Now comes the fun part. I'd like to try a little competition. I've been writing to all of you for a few months, so now it's your turn to write to me. The rules are simple: write an email or Facebook message to me and tell me what you think about my blog so far. Tell me what you like about it, what you think about the music, and any questions you may have to help me improve my blogging. What's the prize? I'll mail some goodies to you from Thailand! I can't send much because of mail restrictions, but I'll include a personal letter to you with some souvenirs! A few of you already have packages on their way to you...I'll let that be a surprise. The first three people who write to me will receive the prize! Thanks to all the viewers and I hope to hear from you soon! Hopefully this idea will work...eyes on the prize ya'll.
