I Thought This Blog Was About Visual FoxPro!!!

I like to check out the site statistics for my blog to get an idea of how many people read the postings, which posts are most popular, etc.

I also like to check out the referrals, so I can get an idea of “how” people are finding the posts.

I just found something interesting in the referrals for my post about the day I spoke atFoxForward:

Most of the referrals came in from people searching Google for “hot showers” or “shower guy”!!! (I mentioned in the post that I had taken a hot shower that morning.)

I wonder if any of these searches came in from any of our esteemed congressmen…

Strangely enough, I decided to take a shot at doing a Google Blog Search on “hot shower”.

Out of 826,549 hits, my post was number 34.

It seems I may have found a new way to market our beloved Visual FoxPro…

UPDATE: After rechecking my Google Blog Search link, I found that my post was gone from the 34th spot. But, this post was NUMBER ONE!!!

This post originally appeared on the Foxite Weblogs site.


FoxForward Awards and More

Craig Boyd mentioned the FoxForward awards on his blog this morning (thanks for the kind words, Craig!) and I’d like to take a moment to say “Thank You” to everyone who “voted” for me.

I should also say “The check is in the mail!”

(Yes, I did try to bribe a few people…)

I reckon I may have gotten a few ‘sympathy’ votes: “Poor guy, had to take a pee break in the middle of his session…” 🙂

Thanks to Kevin Cully for taking a chance on a new conference. I had a great time, and hope to see you all again next year!
