Confession

So, I have a somewhat weird confession to make on blogspot....

I notice all blogs with a tracker...you know the thing that tells them who visits the site.  Once I see it, I can't allow myself to look at the blog anymore.  It's like, I don't feel like an obsessive lunatic, but I don't want THEM to feel that way either.  Sometimes, if I REALLY like the blog, or it is close family, I may still show up once in a while.  But that is once in a GREAT while.  Is that crazy?!?!

NOPE! haha I'm totally the same way! I almost feel like they're intruding on my privacy, which is silly since I'm the one looking at their blog, but I don't like the feeling of being "tracked". I'm gald you did this post!

Well if it makes you feel any better in most cases they don't know it's actually YOU looking at their blog. Your blog address will show up on their tracker any time someone clicks from your blog. So you might as well, since they're "thinking" you're looking anyway. haha!!!

But really, who cares. I think people like knowing people are looking at their blog. If they see your name, then they probably like you better knowing you're interested in them :)

I like mine so I can see how far my blog is reaching, but the ones that say "arrived from...and left via..." are a little crazy.

When I started reading my cousin-in-law's sister's blog (lol), I skimmed through last year's posts, but I didn't realize that every time I clicked on "older posts," my city showed up another time on her tracker, so by the time I had caught up on her blog, the tracker was filled with "Provo." Ha! That was a little embarrassing, but I agree with Taralee, that it just showed her that I was interested in her blog.

Ha that's funny Nikki! I think that's part of my reasoning--I'm afraid they will think I'm looking at it more than I really am because of a simple mistake; therefore coming across as quite obsessive. :O)
