big blog bulletin

Well, I've decided this can't wait any longer. I have about a million other things that I should be doing instead of posting this, but who cares. It's not even a post regarding our kids, which is the actual (often unfulfilled) purpose of this blog, but I'm too excited to keep it to myself. It's a post on my blog about my blog. Pretty exciting.

Things here at hobbsandbean are generally pretty low key. When I first started the blog, I expected visits from Sean, grandparents, aunts, uncles and various other relatives. I'm pretty sure that is what would have happened if Sean hadn't posted about hobbsandbean, but since he did, I have gotten a surprising amount of visitors. Sean also set me up with Sitemeter so I could see where my visitors were and how they got to me. I hardly ever check it, but I recently did, and here are a couple things I learned...
  • Most hobbsandbean visitors come from tohuvabohu. Clyde, Leila and Ben + Melissa also pass along a lot of visitors from their blogs.
  • hobbsandbean has been visited through a few Google searches, including...
(Okay, now we're at the really cool part.)

The other thing I saw at Sitemeter was that I was getting visitors from Pecadillo. For those of you not in the know, Pecadillo is an old friend of ours and quite the comical and popular blogger. We here at the Higgins Casa are big fans. In fact, it was an extremely momentus occasion when tohuvabohu became a Gold Star Blog in Pecadillo's blogroll. I was very curious to see how I was getting visitors from his site. I would have been really excited to just to have been linked to in a post or comment or something, but it was even better than that!

I AM ON PECADILLO'S BLOGROLL!

And I'm not just on the blogroll in some regular old category, I have my own! (Mrs. Turk, you better not start blogging. I like my special status.)

Well, that is the big blog bulletin. Hope you are as excited as I am.

It was well earned. I foresee your blog getting its own gold star status one day. Who knows, maybe Sean will get demoted to a "husbands of gold star bloggers" category.
