Wow, why are we so popular?

As some of you know, I track my visitors with a nifty site tracker thing. No, I don't get to see your names, social security numbers, and bra sizes. I do get to see cities and states though, which is really interesting.

Country-wise, I've got visitors from:

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Belize (much love to Chrissy, I know that's you!)
  • Australia (Kelley and Taldara, the two I know amongst many)
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • Canada
  • New Zealand
  • Nigeria
  • Liechtenstein (no clue where this is!)
  • Serbia
In our own country, I have visitors from the following states:

  • Georgia
  • California
  • District of Columbia
  • Washington
  • North Carolina (Duh, I'm one of those freaks!)
  • Pennsylvania
  • New York
  • Virginia
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Indiana
  • Massachusetts
  • Iowa
  • Michigan
  • New Hampshire
  • Maryland
  • New Jersey
  • Ohio
  • Missouri
  • New Mexico
  • Oklahoma
  • Illinois
  • Texas
  • Nevada
  • Alabama
  • Tennesee
  • Oregon
  • Utah
  • Minnesota
  • Connecticut

What puzzles me is this: I have a few visitors from here in Kernersville, and in Port Charlotte FL where I used to live. I don't recall giving out the link to this blog to anyone in either area. So i'm curious as to whether I know these people, if they found the site randomly...etc.

How did YOU find this site? What do you think? Do I need to be goofier, or more serious? What topics would you like to see discussed? Do you get sick of the Jaymes updates, and want to here more general Autism related stuff? Do you want more Sierra stuff? Are you sick of my bitching about my marriage?

This blog is therapy for me, as writing relieves stress. It doesn't hurt to feel all loved by the thousands of folks who come here daily too -ego inflates-

Hey! I just found your blog about a week ago. I too live in North Carolina; small world.

I am an avid eventer and equestrian, and read the FHOTD blog. She posted an entry on closing down her blog's boards, so I checked the boards out. After browsing through some threads, I found a comment that you left and your intriguing banner. I clicked on it, and read your blog to quite a few weeks back. Now I check it everyday!

Your story is very inspiring and I love the way in which you tell it.

I'm in Maryland! Occasionally D.C. too.
I don't remember how I found you, it was a link from some other blog a few months ago and I stuck around.
(I'm the girl who emailed saying I hoped you'd be able to keep your horse!)

Blogger is making me crazy today. It just ate 2 comments I tried to post. Agh!
Anyway, I'm in MD and DC - I followed a link from another blog a few months ago, no clue which it was though. (I'm the girl who emailed you awhile back saying I hoped you'd be able to keep your horse!)

Hi! I'm in CA, and I found you through another blog- I dont remember which one, but you were one of the blogs that that person read, and since I work in special ed with elementary kids, I thought I'd check it out, and have stuck around and bookmarked you!

You need to add Maine to your list... I have missed a few entries recently and I'm catching up. I got your link from the FHoTD forum.
