Google Analytics

I think I've mentioned it on this blog before, but Google Analytics is really pretty cool. If you haven't set it up for your blog, you should. Here's what I learned today:

*In the last 18 months, we've had visitors from 39 foreign countries. One visitor from Moscow spent 51 minutes reading our awesome blog.

*We've had visitors from 49 states and Washington, DC. South Dakota is the lone holdout. If you know anyone from South Dakota, let them know that we'd appreciate filling out our blog "map."

*My brother Gordon and his wife Chrissy are the undisputed stalking champions; they've visited the blog over 1,050 times in the past 18 months. Wow.

*Our readers are a particularly enlightened bunch--only 54.75% of you use Internet Explorer. Hooray for Firefox!

*Here are some of the search terms leading people to our blog:

1. "Stephanie Dix Denver"
2. "Taylor Dix"
3. "The Crazy Dixes"

Nothing too weird about that, right? Now, here are some of the more odd search terms:

1. "The Entire Contents of My Stomach"
2. "Mormon Craziness"
3. "40 Years Mindy Collette"
4. "all4dix"
5. "Anorexic with Slim Fast"
6. "Baby Moose Hats"
7. "Chuck Norris Candles"
8. "Crazy Tax Breaks"
9. "Guy Pasty Skin"
10. "Seafoam Green Slipcover"
11. "Warren's a Poofy"

And the clear winner:

"Slim Fast You Need It Because You're Fat"

Who says too much information can be a bad thing?

That's fantastic. I forgot all about the Google Analytics. I'm going to have to do that.

Make that 1,051. ha.

Wow, that's a lot of times.

We like to watch Warren videos and laugh. And I like to search blogs while I upload pictures to ours.

Those are my excuses. Lame ones. :)

See you soon!

I didn't know our visits were being monitored...hmmm, I may have to limit it to once a day.
