Just doing a little experiment...

Well, I was checking out my visitor stats, and I noticed that in the days after I posted about Sarah Palin the number of people who checked out my blog increased nearly ten-fold. I'd love to think that it's because of word-of-mouth and that people are recommending my blog to their friends and family...but I DO live in the real world and have the feeling that it was because I posted about Sarah Palin.

So, as a little experiment, I decided to post again about Governor Palin, and include different things about her to see if it causes another upswing in the number of visitors.

Governor Palin has a son named Trig, who has Down Syndrome.

Bristol Palin, Sarah's 17 year old daughter, is pregnant and engaged to the father Levi Johnston.

Governor Palin and her husband were high school sweethearts and have five children. (All with pretty unusual names...Piper and Bristol were the only ones I had heard used as names before)

Todd Palin is apparently a REALLY REALLY good snow machine racer, having won the Iron Dog snow machine race something like four times.

Governor Palin is an AWESOME choice for Vice President, and I'm glad John McCain picked her.

Now...let's see if that "ups" my stats!! It will be interesting to see if it does. I'll probably add more tidbits of info as I think of them, but right now it's dinner time!!!

ok, funny thing, I read this on Facebook the day after her speech... someone's status was, "weighing Gov Palin's speech-giving ability with her inability to name children..."

Just struck me funny.

I do like the kids' names, but I am a little partial to out-of-the-norm names. If I had a dollar for every time someone said Texas Ranger after Walker's name, I could put him through college... why did I think anything with Chuck Norris in it would fade to oblivion??? Thankfully our little Walker is a tough man and he will be able to rise above the Texas Ranger comments, I just know it.

Good luck with your little experiment!
