Look, I know it’s silly. That’s why I’m coming to you, my wonderful online friends rather than writing a letter to the Powers That Be at wordpress. I know I’m just being overly sensitive because of the word choice and no one else probably even notices.
There’s this one section on the blog stats page. You know the page that shows how many visitors you’ve had, where they came from, where they went? It’s down there at the bottom, so I don’t see it every day, but it’s there. Lurking. Like something at the bottom of the lake, waiting to grab your unsuspecting foot as you swim by.
All it says is “Best Day Ever” and it shows how many visitors I had that day. Then, there’s a link to the post from that day. The problem is, for me anyway, that there is no no way in hell that was my Best Day Ever even if almost 2400 people came to read my blog (and by now I’m sure the regular readers can make a good guess without my linking to it. It was late January and we’ll just leave it at that, ok?). And unless I do something drastic to get lots and lots of hits again in one day, it’s always going to be the “Best Day Ever.” I’d probably be ok if it just said something else…”Most visits in one day” would work just fine. Like I said, it’s all in the word choice.
It’s also on the blog stats for Sweet Zoë. Exact same thing. “Best Day Ever” I don’t think so.
So here’s what I’m asking. Can you help me change the post that is displayed for that one stat on my two blogs? Please? Just help me make sure that January 24th, 2008 isn’t listed as my “Best Day Ever.” Pick a day next week, next month…any day and send people my way for that one day. I don’t care what day it is, whenever it works for all of you. It doesn’t even have to be to a certain post. Just so long as more than 2,349 people visit here and more than 1,784 people visit Sweet Zoë. It has to be all in one day though. It doesn’t have to be both blogs in one day but it might be easier.
I thought I could be bigger than it, that I could ignore it, but I can’t and I can’t fix it without your help. Tell me what you need from me…I can make fancy buttons for your blog. I can provide you with the appropriate html if you don’t know how to do that. I can make it a contest and offer to send the blogger who gets the most click-throughs some homemade cookies, a watercolor painting, a homemade quilt…you name it and I’ll bribe you with it. Please?
