Oh. My. Goodness.

I was over at Raising Five today, and found the link for Website Grader which was quite the interesting tool to find out more about my little blog, and what I'm doing wrong (quite a bit if I'm trying to run a business, which I'm not).

What I found absolutely staggering is that the tool detected 1,349 subscribers to this blog. And, "this is usually a small fraction of the total subscribers to the feed" according to the page.

GULP.

Honestly, do I know that many people? I suppose I do. Welcome, little readership group. We could have quite the party, if we all got together. Let's wait until summer. I don't think that you'd all fit in my house. Oh, whew. Karen noticed she has the same exact number. I think there is a glitch, which makes me sigh with relief. Not that I would mind the expanded readership, but I was slightly shocked.

Another OH my goodness is this. The quarterly Bloggy Giveaways Carnival is going this week. But seriously, don't visit unless you have a ton of extra minutes to burn. And I mean a TON. One of these days I'll participate, but until then, I'll just have giveaways here for you, my 1,349 loyal readers.

SURPRISE!! TADA! I am giving away some coupons. I have three coupons for $1 off a Ghirardelli Peanut Butter bag, and I'd use them myself but I won't, for several reasons.

1. Eating peanut butter and chocolate does not help me achieve my weight loss goal.
2. I can't find them in the stores around here.
3. They sent me a sample, and they were very delicious.
4. I would eat the whole bag.
5. See number one.

So, if you want a coupon for these delectable treats, leave a comment, and I will pick 3 winners at random and send each of you a coupon!

Pick me! Though I don't need them, for 3 out of your 5 reasons...

BTW, it appears I, too, have 1349 loyal readers. Fishy?

Oh my goodness is right. I went to website grader and graded my site the blog rank was 3.6%, 1,349 and
2,525,372 blog rank.
I wasn't using my properly for a business at all, but that's OK it's for family and friends. It really makes me think be careful little hands, mouth what you do. I don't think all these people could fit in my house even tho it's large.
I love goodies like this too but like you I really need to watch it so I don't move up to a 16.
Nate and Lissa will be there tomorrow yea!

Wow... that's a lot of subscribers. You ARE quite the popular girl aren't you! :)

I got the same number when I tried it, too. :) And I'd love to be entered in your coupon drawing! Though I sure don't need them . . . but they sound sooo yummy!! I love anything with peanut butter and chocolate!

I also got that magic 1,349 subscribers number when I ran the report for my blog. This must be something with the way that this Bl0gL1nes place is set up and is certainly not how many subscribers that I have to my blog.
This report is kind of confusing compared to some other SEO tools that I use for my business website. Pretty neat marketing strategy though... totally confuse people trying your FREE report so that a few of them will throw their hands up in the air and pay you to fix their supposedly broken site.
