I got curious. I wanted to see how many hits were added to my counter since I removed it from view.
It was on 61 [which would actually be 4135 plus 61 = 4196] when I removed it.
I only removed it so I wouldn't always be looking at it, especially since it decided to start over.
I tried to think of removing it from sight as a zen thing. I was too attached to it. Okay, addicted. And letting it go was the zen part. So I could be free of whatever it was that I was holding onto.
Mrs. L, your karma is calling collect.
Way down deep, and this is hard to admit, the real reason I hid the counter was that I was embarrassed.
I didn't want people who came here to think that only 61 people had read Mrs. Linklater's guiding thoughts since March 17th when her cosmic journaling began.
I have decided I'm over it however.
Think whatever you want.
Here's the punchline. Apparently when I removed the counter from sight, it stopped counting.
So when I turned it on just to get a peak at how many more hits were on it, expecting at least 40 or 50 more, I couldn't believe what I saw.
The counter read 62. Only one more than when I removed it from view. I had more comment alerts than that.
