Here is What with 32,000 Unique Visitors!

First, the news. Yes, I am back in the hospital and yes, it's because my lungs are bleeding again. We're dealing with it. Gripes: I was supposed to spend much of the weekend with famed author and hometown homie Kathleen Rooney. I did get to see her reading at Brookline Booksmithe, but then it was ruined as I walked to dinner and had to duck into my car to cough blood into a plastic bag. Quelle Horreurre! (fr sp?)

But, now in the big house.

I have been quite lax on updating the StatCounter stats for you folks. So here goes!
This image is less than ideal, but, to the right is 2010, and the left is 2009. So, overall, I have about 32,00o Unique IP Addresses tuning in. Only about half of them, 15,000, return regularly. Still, that's pretty great odds. The blog isn't for everyone!

I have between 200 and 300 readers each day:

Monday May 17th 2010 388 266 139 127
The high for daily readers is 400, but I hope to write a really great post and get a 500 Unique Readers Day soon! This amounts to about 1500 Unique Readers per week, and an ever-growing number of Unique Readers per month:

These are the most popular pages (other than recent ones):

Cystic Gal: Guest Blog by CysticLady: Update on CysticGal III
Cystic Gal: Ten Things I Don't Want During My Transplant Journey

These are the most important keyword searches other than "cystic gal" that led readers to my blog. Oddly, Florence Nightingale Syndrome is still a big draw to the CG. Also, apparently, are people looking for Journey lyrics because of my addiction to naming post titles after 70s songs. I enjoy that this list also has the phrase "faux boyfriends." I did not realize how often I must type that phrase that it led readers to the blog.

  1. I read every time you post something. I love all the statistics. Now I am going over to read about the woman in Des Moines. Thanks for the link.
    Sorry to hear about the bleed and being back in the Big House. When you have a bleed, do they put you in for IV's? Jamie has only had one major bleed, and it was on Mardi Gras Day and getting through the parade traffic in New Orleans was a nightmare. Took me 45 minutes to navigate 3/4 the way around 1 city block. Thank goodness he had gone ahead in an ambulance from Baton Rouge. He has been having more streaking the last few days and is thinking he may have something larger coming on. Hope you can have a good day despite being in the Big House.
