you're reading...

Picture this

It’s easy, if you have a blog, to get caught up in your stats. How many people are reading? What are they reading?

WordPress makes it easy to track all this, and even includes a little thing on the analytics dashboard that tells you where people are reading from (I get a surprising number of overseas readers), and what websites referred them.

(And yes, I check — several times a day — to see if anyone out there is paying attention. Those of you middle-aged married people with teenage children will understand. No one at home pays much attention, after all.)

Sometimes people find me through a Google search, and it’s always interesting to note what search terms got them to me. Today two people found Pushing on a Rope by typing in “funny workout pictures.”

I don’t really know what to say about that.

Did they look at the post that went with this picture?

Last Saturday’s birthday bash class at Jazzercise of Southwestern CT, where I’m having the time of my life with some fabulous ladies, dancing like no one is watching.. (I didn’t get the blue shirt memo.)

Or this one?

And if I should ever happen to meet these readers what should I say?

Thank you for gawking? 

Were my photos funny enough for you?

If you liked my funny workout pictures, you’ll love the photos of me gap-toothed and rocking ’70s fashions?

All of this is doubly funny for me, having had a Tweet yesterday from a former editor who let me (and all her Twitter followers) know that she recently unearthed a photo of me wearing a Groucho Marx nose and glasses.

Despite my entreaties, she will not take a match to said snapshot. No matter. That photo will likely not make an appearance here.

Please, don’t get me wrong: I’ll take all readers.

I hope they leave my little blog with whatever kind of laugh they came for.
