Getting the hits
I was going to post earlier, before nipping out to the shops etc. congratulating myself on my hit counter (right at the bottom of the page) reaching the 300 mark for unique hits, and this blog/site/project/adventure type thing has only been live for thirteen days! However, I didn't and popped out first. Now, as I look at the bottom of the page it's on 339 ... today is a "good hit day"!
For those familiar with Blogexplosion I have been "Surfing for Credits" for days, and currently have rented a little space on 12 people's blogs ... man that's a lot of surfing. In fact I'm doing it now in another window! It's become addictive. I find it hard to leave the PC because I am missing out on credits I could be earning ('scuse me a second ...another 0.5 credits! ... okay I'm back, where was I?) and the highlight which is the random Mystery Credits. Once I got 50 (once!) but usually it's 2 or 3 now and again. (Another 0.5 ... and I'm back) At least the results are showing. The hit counter now shows 340 and rising. Hard work (well, surfing) *does* pay off!
I made a banner at addesigner.com which looks ok, which is "Awaiting admin approva" at BlogEx. Hopefully I can get this displayed and get some more traffic.
Traffic = people = (hopefully) participation.
What else was I going to say? (...bah, another 0.5 not a Mystery Credits prize...) oh yeah, I'd like to say thanks for all the nice comments and emails wishing me well on this journey, and to those who have blogrolled me or mentioned me in a post. BIG thanks guys, good health to you. I still of course need all the help I can get so, although there isn't much progress with the trading *yet*, if you can link to me, or just tell someone about this that would be great! I ain't too proud to beg ... sounds like a song ;-)
