This weeks open slather is my 200th post! I thought I would give you some stats to
mull over bore you to death. They are very interesting, I promise, well probably only to me.
During the Easter weekend I clocked up just over twenty thousand page views. Who would have thought? I know compared to most that isn't much. To me, it's a heck of a lot. Towards the end of next month, I'd have been blogging for a year.
Unfrickin believable. I never realised how much work this bloggin caper took up. But I have enjoyed every minute. Every creativity block that made me push through. Every doubt, that made me believe I had something to contribute. Even if no one was interested, one day my kids would appreciate looking back and reading the scratchings I put here.
It's me. I cook, I garden, I do shit, I think shit.
The post that has had the most page views, is about the cakes I made for the girls last birthday, 1200 views so far. Mind blown! All I can say is there is a lot of people searching on Google on how to make butterfly and peppa pig cakes.
The next popular is my Broad bean salad, almost a thousand views to date.When I saw the Tassie couple, Ali and Samuel, make this on My Kitchen Rules, I had a feeling it would sky rocket. Thanks to Google. Who says I don't have my finger on the pulse!
The third most popular and rightly so is one my rose posts, Just Joey, with 300 views. I really have enjoyed photographing and sharing my roses.
The weirdest search to get to my blog was 'hen slathering'. Now what kind of person wants to slather a hen. Seriously! I must admit I have heard worse, should I count myself lucky?
The funniest and maybe the most surprising thing this week, was watching my chooks fight over a drop tail lizard, the little brown chook nabbed it and it was hell funny to watch the other chooks trying to steal it. Who knew a droppy was a delicacy for a chook, lucky for the brown chook she gutsed it down before the others got it. Gross! She does lay the best eggs though!
Hope you are all having a fantastic Easter long weekend. Oh and pinch and a punch for the first of the month. Don't forget it's April Fools Day, I always get caught out, I'm a sucker for a tall story. Usually something I hear on the radio, only to be reminded of what day it is, when I relay the story to someone else!
