    Oh the horror of it all!
    My stats page looks like some sort of deadly winter scene with all these little blue icicle looking pointy arrows falling everywhere! I gotta be so careful when checking my stats or one of those blue icicles might fall and impale me! Seriously guys, falling icicles can and do kill!

        Thanks! I was rather impressed with that photo and thought it represented the very real and present danger of checking my stats today lol

    Listen up experts - I get blue arrows all the time.  If I didn't see them I'd figure my computer had broken.  We're not all mega money making big bucks heroes y'know.


    My New Year hub is actually doing very well today.  For my standard.  One bored drunk from Glasgow has apparently visited it twice.  Result!!!

    I'm so distraught sad

    I'm being crushed with hundreds of icicles.

    Traffic less than half of the usual.

    Maybe i'll just go into hibernation.

    Me too!  After good views after Christmas, today's views are dismal and I too have a sea of blue arrows. 

    Two days ago one of my hubs really took off and that boosted my views enormously but that too has taken a dive.  It was lovely while it lasted.

    Don't hibernate kirstenblog - you have too much happening!

    I thought after the dismal traffic leading up to Christmas traffic is slowly picking up... it seems to be crawling back to normalcy!! Cheer up Kirsten, it will pick up in a day or two!! smilesmilesmile

      I know its totally normal, people all hung over and sleeping in on this first day of a whole new year. I just have not ever seen so many red arrows at once, tho last year I didn't have as many hubs to experience traffic drops in the first place lol

      It is encouraging to see that little lone red up arrow struggling against the tide lol
      Poor little guy is a trooper wink
