Do you look at your blog stats and how often? Do you let search stats influence your writing?
If I notice I am having a good day I will look at my graph throughout the day. Mine has a lot of peeks and valleys. I would love to even it out on the high end..
One of my high searches were for "Dirty Moms" I had wrote a post called " Real Moms get dirty" about splashing in puddles and gettin' dirty with the kids- Questionable search there. Also I found a funny quote from Lucy of Charlie Brown fame and that drew some people in.
Susan - your question prompted me to add SiteMeter to my site, CravingBaby I've got to admit it's a little depressing at first... when the numbers are small (or should I say minute). However, I have a feeling that as they grow it can/will become addictive.
I look at the counter once, maybe twice a day. I'm most interested in the flag counter that I have. I love to see if someone from a different country has visited. I've had some very interesting ones. I think it's cool!!
