#1. After lunch the other day, I realized that my pants felt looser on me. Immediately, I assumed that it must be because I had been sick this week and had lost a ton of weight. Boy, was I happy! That is until I was on my way into a meeting and realized that the button on my jeans was undone, leaving my belly free from its usual oppressiveness. I'm not sure what was more embarrassing: asking myself aloud if my pants were undone and then realizing they were along with everyone else within earshot, or being depressed afterwards because once I buttoned them they felt way more restrictive than normal.
#2. So like any new blogger, I steadfastly keep track of the stats page in Blogger to see how many page views my site has each day. Well, a few weeks ago I realized that I had hit an all time high in page views! I was so pleased with myself and knew that this was the beginning of something big. I took a screenshot of the webpage and saved it to my computer to look back on proudly in the future. I noticed that the top traffic sources were names I didn't quite recognize, but assumed that they were some sort of referring sites. I decided to click on one. I mean, the name of it is "topblogstories" so I assumed that one of my posts was so good it had been picked up by another site. Sadly, that was not the case. Luckily my browser blocked the site from coming up since I'm sure my computer would have gotten a virus, but let's just say that the subject of the site was not family friendly. Upon futher research, I learned that Blogger is plagued with these spam sites hitting blogs and driving up the page views. I'm still going to keep the screenshot, though:)
