A few minutes ago I posted Why Wouldja Wanna Volunteer, then walked away from the computer. Stretched my legs, made sure the cat had fresh water, tried to figure out what was beeping from time to time, and came back to this slowly dying computer.
I wonder if anybody has read my post yet. Yeah…that was fast. One visit, two views. Hm, they read the post twice. So I hit refresh and now there are three views. Whoever this is, they were referred here by FaceBook, so they must be one of my friends there. They are in the US. Have they read any more? Hit refresh…yep, now there are four views but still only one visitor. Hm, wonder if they’re still there. Hey, they just read another post. Another minute. Another refresh. Another view. Still the same visitor. I can see what posts they have read. Slowly the total climbs to nine. And then it ends. Ahh…my friend is gone. One visitor, nine views. With each view, the bar graph at the top of the page gets a little higher.
Oho…here comes another. I’ve never done this before, just sitting and watching the stats page after posting. Now I have two visitors, this one also from the US, but not referred by FB. Must be a follower. Hm, no more views. Two visitors, still nine views. Check it two or three more times. Nothing changes.
Let me go check again. OK, they read the latest post, so now I’m up to two visitors and ten views.
Here’s the sad part. Neither of my viewers has commented. Neither has “liked” the post. Neither has responded on FB.
The latest update says this one was referred by FB as well as the first one but there are no more views. And I still don’t have any idea who has read these posts. INQUIRING MINDS WANNA KNOW!
Now I’m up to eleven views and the current post has been viewed four times. Do they really like it that well? Do they think I’m nuts for volunteering? Are they disgusted and thinking “get a grip, woman…we don’t really give a flying bleep what you’ve done for free”? Or is something in the stats counting the current post twice? This brain is curious.
I need to go find that used bookstore Scott told me about, get a good book for the train ride next week. I need to get off this incredibly uncomfortable chair before my legs lose all circulation. I NEED TO GET OFF THIS COMPUTER! I’ll just hit refresh one more time. Well, maybe twice.
If you don’t comment, I won’t tell you what I found.
