Slightly embarrassing story ahead....

So, of course, since I have a new blog I'm getting hopelessly a bit obsessed with Google Analytics.
Especially since they they added a tab where you can see what's going on in real time.

I had just put the link up on Facebook so I went to my Google Analytics page when I saw something very exciting.
an actual person on my blog!!

I freaked out. I mean freaked out. So, of course I want to know more about this person. I run through the tabs on the side.
I think they should tell you the person's life story

But they don't show anything exciting. I decide I have to at least find out where this person is. I assumed it was one of my Charleston people on... here? my blog? whatever. So I make it show in which city this person  lives. There I see this.
Hey guys... wanna guess where I live? I bet you can.
That's right.

I got so excited. About myself being on my blog.
How typical is that?
In my defense - I could not find a single tab that had it open. But for some reason it was still me.

However. I think I can still consider it a win because...
It happened to be exactly 11:11 when I took that screenshot. And I didn't even realize it until after I started making all those pictures.

The lesson I learned from this is that (obviously) since it was 11:11 when I took the picture this blog will magically go from have no followers to having many in a matter of seconds. Because of good luck. I probably shouldn't obsess over Google Analytics.

I feel kind of weird posting this now. So I think I'll wait till sometime tomorrow.

Note from tomorrow/today: I actually have gotten my first a new follower since then! So clearly I was right.
Hi new follower! I hope you're having a good day. I'm sending you lots of internet love.
