All you need is love

Any one who has scrolled down to the bottom of my site recently may have noticed that I now have a site meter. It tells me how many people have visited my site and things like where they came from (eg which site they followed a link from, or what search they did and found me).

One of the things the site meter has told me is that an awful lot of people seem to come to my site by google-ing the phrase 'you give a little love and it all comes back to you'. In fact, I just googled that very phrase and the post I titled that came up as the third site. Not bad for a little unknown blog like mine.

This has taught me several things.
Firstly, that it is good to title your posts with words from songs (I've also used I get by with a little help from my friends) because people will find my blog by searching for them.
Secondly, that there must be an awful lot of people out there who want to know the lyrics to that song and are really frustrated because all I put on that post was that line.
Thirdly, never try to come up with more that 2 points because you fingers can't type as quick as you think and you will have forgotten the third point by the time you get to try to type it.
Oh, and finally, it begs the question what shall I call this post? I'm not really feeling inspired. Oh, I know - the people at least coming to, if not reading my blog makes me feel loved so I shall call it... (well you don't need me to type it again do you? Just look at the top of the post - in fact, in a way you knew before I did)

Ooooo a site meter! Where did you get it? Where can I get one? Or is this something I can use from blogger, only I don't know it.
I think the idea of using song lyrics for titles is grand! I might follow you there. Maybe. My trouble is that I have a hard time finding a song titles that has anything to do with my content...

I want one of those site meters. Just to see who comes by and where they're from. It's great meeting people from all over.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Debs. A site meter sounds cool. I want one although maybe upset that not many people visit me. Oh well. Just thought I'd let you know I've at last posted something new on my blog. Have a nice day, even though its wet. Love Ang x
