Google AnalyticsA couple of days ago, I started tracking my Lopaka Lounge blog using Google Analytics.  I really didn’t expect to see much traffic going to my site and at this point it’s too early to assess all the data because there really isn’t any.  This morning, I got quite a surprise when I checked my site visits.  People were visiting from the US, Spain, Switzerland and Germany!

Hello world!

It just amazes me that I’m sitting in my little home in the Middle of Nowhere, Arizona and someone from Switzerland can see the same view out my window from the photo I posted a few days ago.  Our world keeps getting smaller and smaller. 

Google Analytics is a trip!  It tells you things like where the hits are coming from, what browser they’re on, screen resolution and operating system.  Big Brother is watching you and he knows what setting your monitor is on.  It’s almost like he can see you through the screen…

Hey you!  What are you doing there?  Does your mother know?

Who am I to talk?  If people could see what a person is doing through the screen of their computer monitor, I’d be in a hell of a lot of trouble.

Perhaps I should charge admission.

    Hi Cobban,

    your blog is also being read in Las Vegas, in your neighboring state of Nevada. But I am fluent in German, if this helps to add a little to the international flair :). I just recently “discovered” that blogs can be quite fun and intriguing. I’m somewhat of a late bloomer in this category, I suppose.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I enjoy reading your blogs. I like people who have something important to say without taking themselves too serious. You make me think and smile at the same time. You and your blogger colleague Homer are amazing. Can one get addicted to blogs? Great, I’ve become a blogaholic!

    Thanks for the view out of your window. You and Ray have a great Labor Day weekend, Jim

  2. Wow! Thanks for your kind words Jim and thanks for adding a new word to the Blogger Dictionary (Blictionary?) I could never take myself too seriously—too hard to keep a straight face. :-/
