...chasing baby goats, should have known.

Been waiting here a long time, where could she be?

Have eaten some of the food, drunk all the beer...and started talking to myself. Wonder if Foolery has any decent games in her computer?


I, too, have seen HUGE spikes in traffic from our good friend StumbleUpon. But she is a fickle bitch. She gets you hooked on her love and adoration, but then she leaves you abruptly and without warning, and you're confused and hurt and you cry and wonder what's wrong with you, and you're sad and lonely and insecure and then you try to figure out how you can stalk her and make her yours again but she's all "Screw you, you're SO OVER" and then you put your head in an oven and it really IS all over.

This may be the most depressing comment I've ever left.

I love me some Stumble...OK, well I love it on the days I actually GET Stumble'd

Rick's Cafe

Hey CBW, thanks for the grub...I was hungry.

Stopped by earlier hoping Foolery would buy me a beer, but no one was home.

Figured they'd be home soon so stuck around and watched some TV. ...must have fallen asleep... ahhmm, I did find the beer.

Do you think we should go check out the barn together? ...ya know, to see Foolery's in there for some reason(nudge, nudge, wink, wink)?? :))

Knock-knock. Rap-a-tap-tap. (Open the door and walk right on in.)

"Ms. Foolery?

You don't have to come to the door, but I'm just making sure you're OK and have a little something for you.

How are you? Good. I'll just lay this food on your kitchen table and you come get it whenever you want. It's hotter than blue blazes out there today, and humid too. I'll put the milk in the icebox if you can't get to it right away. Can I get your mail for you? Is there anything else you need while I'm here?

OK. Thank you, you take care."

This is my Standard Meals on Wheels speech...you want to express concern if they don't come to the door but not be overly/overtly concerned since more than likely there's a really good reason why they can't get to the door.

Yep. I can still fill up comment space even without a new posting.

Hoping everything's good in your neighborhood.

I hear ya, I like it, I get it, but am I going to remember to do it? And what then?

This might have to be a breakout session at VA Blogfest. Frankly, I'm still scratching my head.

But the tutorial? Spot-on and easy-peasy! Thanks!

Thanks for using me as your example of what to Stumble.
I have a Stumble account and need to start to use it more--well, use it period.
You are always so helpful.

I love Stumble. I've had some amazing stats thanks to kind Stumblers. And, weirdly enough, some posts experience a kind of retroactive Stumble effect, wherein they were Stumbled months ago but all of the sudden, there's a surge of traffic.

And the Stumble toolbar . . . ah. What a great time-waster.


Cool tip. Thanks.


When I have a moment, I am going to study your post like my life depends on it. I have had so much trouble trying to get my StumbeUpon account to work. I don't know why. I've tweeted for help, appealed to the universe with no response. Maybe you heard me? StumbleUpon has been the most amazing thing for my blog traffic. Hands down. And to any and all who have Stumbled me, thank you.

I might need more of a lesson than that. After you stumbled me (thank you!) I revisited my lifeless membership and I don't know if I know how to do it.

Give me a break. Its' my homage to elderliness.

Cactus Petunia

Wow. I almost had a heart attack once when I got 138 hits in one day.

My average? About 7 or 8. Yeah, that's seven. Or eight.

But I'm sure they're very loyal readers, right?


Looooove Stumble.
And you are QUITE welcome. It was funny. :)
(It's cool to see that I wasn't the only one who thought so- did you see how many thumbs-ups it's gotten?!? Wow.)

Mental P Mama

lol @ CBW I need to learn this stumble thing. Lord knows I do enough of it at home in the dark. Wine may or may not be involved.

Caution Flag

I'm not sure how I got to your blog, but I'm surely glad I did.

Chesapeake Bay Woman

I'd never heard of Stumbleupon until you stumbled me, and my stats changed significantly and dramatically for that day. Once they arrived to my site and saw the insanity, they went running and screaming back to cyberspace never to look back.

Thank you for sharing your wisdom, your technical knowledge is incredible. Can you do a tutorial on how to change from dial-up to whatever non-dial-up is called?

Still climbing the telephone pole to make a phone call
