My regiment every morn is to clean the shop, put out the sign then sit down at the 'puter and check e-mail, update Craigslist and do the blog. When I check the blog I review the stats. It breaks down how many folks visited the site, any comments left by folks, which re-feral sites lead them to us, which blog entries they read and where they hail from. I usually only pay attention to how many stopped by and comments. This morning however I noticed something pleasantly out of the ordinary. Our readership quadrupled yesterday from it's norm. We average about 150 views a day but inexplicably yesterday we had 597!? I was intrigued. What had I done differently yesterday that inspired such a spike in views? I do cross post all our blogs to Facebook and yesterdays palather about the casting for Dr. Strange aside, wasn't much more of anything specific. All the referral site were normal, just more of them. Oddly enough the spike in numbers seems to correlate to an increase of oversea views. So Id like to give a shout out and mention for all the following viewers visiting us from "A Small World" Thanks (in no particular order) to...
Russia, Sweden, Canada (OK, they're not "overseas") United Kingdom, Ukraine, France, Latvia, Indonesia, Germany, China, Poland, Philippines, Mexico, Netherlands and Lithuania. Those were the places that visited us just yesterday. Of course the US was in there to, that goes without saying. Honestly I have NO idea how our little rant sessions would have been heard about by folks outside our immediate area but I do want to say thank you to everyone, world wide for their interest in our words and our humble little operation. Feel free to leave a comment (in any language) we'd love to hear what you have to say!
Managed to get out TWO new rides yesterday!! Believe it or not even under our current holding pattern waiting for the permit we are still not through the overstock and some folks, hearing of our predicament have just been donating some old rides to us. Appreciate that IMMENSELY! One of the ones we were given yesterday was in rough shape BUT once refurbed and dressed up with a real sweet set of Kevlar tires turned out to be pretty sweet! Add to that what was once a rusty hulk sitting in our shed, that blossomed into quite a lovely classic three speed! And today after the swell of repairs are taken care of, I've got a (soon to be) nice looking Schwinn comfort cruiser to bang out!
So, we ask you brave the heat and come on down and take advantage of some of the sweet rides we have to offer!
See ya soon!
