Most of you probably aren't aware (unless you have one yourselves, or have heard me talk about it) of the capabilities of my stat counter on my blog. This stat counter can do magical and amazing things! Not only does it count how many hits my blog gets, it also tells me who is hitting it. Well, it doesn't give me names, but it gives me the city/state of the person visiting my blog. It also tells me if you found my blog through a search engine. So, if you Goo.gle "One Safe Place", it tells me exactly what you typed into google to find my blog.
So, for example, if I see that I got a hit from someone in Cork, Ireland, then I know that it's Erin. If I get a hit from someone in Philadelphia, PA then I know it's probably Lindsey. If I get a hit from someone in Chestertown, MD then I know it's probably my cousin Meghan.
About a year ago, I started getting hits from someone in Virginia who was getting the link to my blog by searching Goo.gle for "Cop.per One Safe Place". Obviously, this leads me to believe that it is someone from Camp Hoo.ver. When I saw that, I was worried that anyone could search for Camp Hoo.ver and find my blog, so I went back and deleted every single "Cop.per" and "Camp Hoo.ver" out of all of my entries, so that no one could accidentally come across my blog (a camper, a parent, someone from council, etc.) Now, I get hits from people in the same area searching "Kristen One Safe Place".
Please... I am dying to know who you are!! I won't be mad if you're a camper! I just want to know who you are, so that I know that I don't have some parent reading my blog or something. Come out of the woodwork... Leave me a comment! Or, if you don't feel comfortable leaving me a comment, my e-mail address is Knsmith5@uncg.edu . I already have an idea of probably who it might be...so don't be embarrassed!!
On that same note... I get about 100 hits on my blog every day from people who are regular readers. I know that it's probably not the same people hitting "refresh" 20 times (haha). Who are all of these people all across North Carolina who are reading? I would love to know!! I always wonder...is it people on my rugby team? Is it people from my classes? Let me know, I would LOVE to know if you're reading!! I totally understand how some people wouldn't comment, maybe because they found my blog randomly, or because I don't know that they read it, but honestly - I write on this blog knowing that it is completely open to the public, so I would never be mad or upset to know that ANYONE is reading it!
