OK, it's over 4000!

Geez, who are you? Over 4000 people have read this blog in not that long of a period. Now I KNOW there are people who get that many "hits" in a day - such as Stuff White People Like - and I'm just "small potatoes" to that kind of readership...........except 4000 is a BIG number to me.
I mean, I watch the odometer on the car turn over - BUT I remember the miles I've driven and the things I've seen - this is SO different! It's so anonymous, except for those of you who "comment". Or, those of you who call me or stop me on the street and let me know you read the blog...........I have removed the need for you to register to comment; I have removed that stupid thing where you had to put in those silly shaped letters that was like a Rohrshak test.........so let me know who you are! I care............I think.
When I write I don't think about ya'll individually but just sit down and write - what's on my addled brain or what I'm feeling or when I've taken a great trip I DO love sharing the photos...........
Glad to know "someone" is out there and hopefully enjoying the writings of a Gypsy Diva who is enjoying the adventure!

The numbers baffle me, as well. I know that most of them are not reading, but merely breezing by. The detail information discloses that much. But the rest. Some stay for long periods. Reading, I assume. Like you, I wish they would leave comments.

Hi Steve - How funny - while you were leaving me a comment I was leaving a comment for you. Synchronicity!

Well, there's me. But you already knew that. Congrats on 4,000+. That is a beeeeeeg numero! Keep on keepin' on.

The numbers amaze me also. Like Steve, I know that lots are just breezing by; but others come back over and over again and I wonder why they never leave a comment, or just a HI; but then I also do that. I am a lurker on many blogs so I guess I can't complain about others doing the same.
I know why they are reading your blog though, it is interesting and informative and I enjoy it alot.

I have been bouncing to many Mexico sites via Steve's blog roll. I have to tell you that this Mexico transplant virtual community is very, very interesting for this new arrival!

Great numbers. I should be coming up on 10,000 in about two days, but I have been running mine since April.
