Settling In


MAJOR MAJOR apologies for the radio silence guys! (Or should I be saying y’all?) As you all probably know, or maybe you don’t, that we have successfully moved to Houston, Texas! It’s been a huge change in our lives and regardless of my general nervousness, I’m SUPER excited to be down here! The biggest bummer at the moment is that we won’t have working stable internet until Tuesday and the Comcast hotspot has terrible signal and cuts out all the time….cue working in the closest Starbucks.

In my absence I hope you all haven’t given up on me…although clearly not because this happened?

Did someone link me? What the heck happened here??! I don’t think I’ve ever hit that many page views in a day ever. Enlighten me please?

Anyways, in the next coming week be prepared for me to be back in full swing talking about the move, what’s new, my lack of current reading, and more! Thanks for sticking me with y’all!

    Good to hear from you 🙂

  • WOO welcome back, girlfriend! What post was getting all the views? I tweeted out a few days before linking to your blog and it was RT'd 5 times, so maybe that helped???

  • That's happened to me sometimes…but it's typically been spamming…do you use Google Analytics? That'll have a more real, true stats and won't include spammed pageviews

  • I've just discovered your blog, congrats on your move to Houston! My husband's brother moved there just over a year ago and he loves it! I look forward to reading about your adventures 🙂

  • A similar thing happened to me last week. I wrote a blog post with tips for preparing to go to uni and it got shared by my uni and I got like 1500 views in one day when I normally get about 300-400 a day!

    That is crazy stat spike!! But awesome! So glad to hear the move went smoothly, and hopefully the internet issues get worked out. Having inconsistent internet is one thing I find SO FRUSTRATING. I hope you're enjoying Texas so far!

  • Congrats on moving and good luck getting settled<3!

  • Oh that could have been it!! Awesome!! 🙂

  • I did have one spam comment recently on a post, which is rare nowadays, I will have to consult google analytics and see what's up

  • Thank you so much!! 🙂 I'm already starting to love it here!

  • It's always so weird to get a huge spike! But that's awesome!!

  • cotton eyed Joe! Sorry, I couldn't help it. I tried to write something else, but I was overwhelming overpowered with desire to finish the lyrics. BUT yes I totally agree with you, it's a bit freaky!!

  • We JUST got internet today and it is SUCH a relief! Thank you 🙂

  • Thank you! It's coming along, albeit a bit slowly, but it's going well!

  • Hope you're having fun in Texas!

  • Omg how strange!! Well you are awesome so that could be it.
    Sometimes I get loads of people googling one specific thing and finding a post of mine (usually the Kingsmen post I wrote).
