25,418 HITS!

For whatever reason, I had the highest amount of hits on my wordpress site yesterday. Usually, after a big cake, I do experience a spike in visits on my site, especially after I put up a picture of the cake. However, I haven't put up anything new lately and I didn't even bother taking a picture of the hot mess cake from the baby shower because I was so ashamed of it.

I don't know why I got so much traffic. It didn't all come from one source, either! I guess my insane amount of tags and pictures are turning up on the search engines and people are not only clicking into my site, but also clicking THROUGH my site!!! I had 6 out-clicks to my graphics person's link, too!! Who knew networking actually worked?!

I don't get many comments, which is fine since it's sort of hard to babysit so many different things online, but I'm not about the comments. I'm all about the business. I am getting so much new exposure to new customers who haven't tried me out yet, which I am nervous about. You all know how much I like my tried and true referral crowd; the one's who've tasted a cake or two from me and actually want me because they know I taste good.I average nearly 5 or 6 emails a week inquiring about cakes. Most of the time, it's out of state and I can't do anything about it. Other times, they want the Yo Gabba Gabba toppers, which I can actually ship.

Anyway, it's not a bad number after nearly a year online. I'm proud of it, and I'm proud of my cakes. And even though I'm coming off a big fail this weekend, I have two huge parties coming up and the only thing I can do is knock them out with my talent.

WHEEEEE!!
