Once spiked, twice not shy

sitemeter spikeThat’s an impressive spike, huh?

And while it looks as if the dramatic falloff could have depressed me, my daily visitors were still considerably higher than usual for many days after the spike. In fact, they’re still a bit higher than usual.

It may not have depressed me but I’ve felt the need to be spiked again. Why else would I post another list of great insults? Why else would I draw attention to myself on digg and reddit?

And did it work? Absolutely not!

1000 south africansOh well, I suppose I could try following these instructions on how to get noticed on digg. Or, maybe, I should just resign myself to happy memories and lower hits.

Pass me the vodka!

Then again, maybe not. I could seek solace in the fact that, today, I got my 1000th visitor from South Africa since installing my flag counter. A small consolation, perhaps, Germany will be overtaking South Africa soon.

Now where's that vodka?

Most impressive spike Mr Nomad.

But I had trouble seeing your page - it seemed all tangled up with neocounter and I ended up interupting it...

Oh, all this talk of spikes is making me feel FRISKY!

*GROWL* ;-)

Seriously, I hope I can add to your "spike" because I like your blog. I am a big fan of travel and seeing new places and travel writing, and that is what drew me to you. Travel DOES broaden the mind.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I think it represents me well - I'm eclectic and so is it!

I didn't classify your blog on my blog as GLBT because I wasn't sure you were GLBT, and besides, I only try to use the "label" or "labels" that seem to be the most dominant for the blog. If you had a bunch of nude men on here, or talked alot about gay rights, then I might have thought differently. *WINK*

Watching your hits is a real roller coaster ride - I also suffer from the same dizzy experience.

I am just SO not in your league when it comes to hits, but I'm not jealous. I've decided that my aim is to be a "cozy blog" ;D

Caroline: I think blogger has been playing up of late. I hope you’re not still having similar problems.

Alan: Mmmmm…no comment! ;-)

J. David Zacko-Smith: All this growling and friskiness is making me quite weak at the knees!!

chitty: Too late for a sip, I downed it all in one go!

kyknoord: My fifteen minutes were like a powerful drug! A bit like getting spiked, perhaps?

Terri: Like I told chitty, too late, I’ve drained the bottles. Sorry.

Dawn: I get your drift. You could also have said ‘bottoms up’:-)

Rouvanne: All of you seem to like vodka too much!

xmichra: You say the sweetest things, thank you.

Mick Gordon: I think my roller coaster has morphed into a coaster.

rhino75: Cozy is nice – it’s winter after all.

Babsbitchin: Jeez, another alcoholic! And this one wants to spike my drink too!
