StatCounters Anonymous

So apparently I'm not the only one who is obsessed with checking my website stats. That makes me feel better.

Julia asked about the search terms I see most often. I get a lot of people looking for "tips for emerging artists," or similar terms. Also, "rejection letters," or "artist rejection letters," and someone recently got me after searching for, "nice rejection letter to client." Why anyone would want to reject a client, I don't know. At least they wanted to do it nicely...

I get a lot of "packing and shipping artwork." Lots of searches for "vanity galleries," "artist statements," "artist resumes," and "writing exhibition proposals."

I actually only checked it once today - I was obviously busy with other things and wasn't able to obsess like I usually do!

Great, sounds like you are tapering off. Not me ...hard to ween myself... I may need a 12 step program for my "stat" addiction.

I think the first step is acknowledging that you have a problem. :-)

what an interesting blog :)

mmmm I've recently joined analytics and study it daily!

My most common search terms have nothing to do with my, "If a train leaves the station" or
"two steppin" or "blenders that ossify"

I think that might be a clue that I need to focus! :)

Thanks for feeding my curiosity.
