Practicing Humility

I followed three college-age young men in the grocery store today. As they stopped to load up on a case of Top Ramen I overheard them talking about their blogs. They were comparing daily visits. One guy got 80 daily visits. The second got 250. The third received 700 daily visits.

I smiled as I passed them, overcoming the urge to tell them about a blog about two little kids. I didn’t think they’d appreciate the old guy chiming in on HIS daily visit count.

Thanks to all of you who make me more hip than college students!


  1. The guy with 80 hits was me. I just look young.

  3. he he… they’ll just have to wait until they are older and find out just how great having a blog about your kids can be. When I started blogging, I used my husband’s site and his hit count soared suddenly because he only talked about computer stuff and I was posting about our kids. When he made my own blog, his hit count dropped drastically back down since most of the readers switched over to my new blog.

    I don’t have a really high hit count… maybe 100 a day, but I don’t care. I just enjoy blogging about my babies.

  4. Rub it in, Mr. Popular.

    Too bad you didn’t get their names…we could totally TP their blogs!

  5. My counters are all off, but I think I would have to bake muffins for everyone who has ever read me to even attempt to hit 80 a day.

  6. Yeah, I’m in the 60 to 100 range. I just wish I had more time to get out there and discover more blogs, but… it ain’t so. I’m lucky to get to the folks who visit now. And with another one on the way — it doesn’t look good.
