[Meet the Buttrams] Hey, Please Moderate.

My stats exploded yesterday.

(Not that I pay ANY attention to that number. Right, you guys?)

And I kid you not, when I received an email notification that Mikalee Byerman left a comment on one of my posts, I immediately thought, “What, was I Freshly Pressed?” (Mikalee Byerman is everywhere on WordPress, you guys.)

And when I received fourteen additional email notices within six seconds, I thought, “I must have been Freshly Pressed!”

And then I saw my blogger buddy Mark’s comment (that I did not have to moderate, congratulations, Mark) that said, “Congrats on getting Freshly Pressed!”

Confirmation, you guys. It’s a beautiful thing.

This is also beautiful:

Oh, look, there I am, next to "The best of..." and right above "Humor"!

The Goliath graph bar that’s staring at my other little graph bars like, IMMA GONNA EAT YOU! is also beautiful:


It’s a fluke. I feel like I won the lottery. I feel like taking these screenshots to Starbucks and making them give me a white chocolate mocha for free. (DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?)

I also feel authorized to speak in capital letters ALL DAY LONG. (At this point, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, YOU GUYS.)

So thank you, WordPress, for making this happen. Mostly thank you, because that post is actually considered a Humor post. (I AM HAS FUNNIES?)

And a GIANT HELLO! to all my new followers.

Seriously. I love you. Let’s be friends. DO YOU LIKE ME, PLEASE SAY YOU LIKE ME.

My screenshots tell me that you do. (Shhh, don’t correct me.)

  11. Congrats on Freshly Pressed! If I worked at Starbucks I’d give you a cake pop too. You’re awesome!!

  12. Well deserved I might add. It’s a shame that WordPress don’t offer sub-categories to browse through. But you’re right, I mean who cares about getting freshly pressed…. I mean I don’t…. nope, not me…. u guys can have your hundreds of comments, and your thousands of likes…and your… shit.

  21. That WAS a great piece, darlin. Is it just me or do they seem to be getting slower with their pressings? SO HAPPY FOR YOU!

    I think you should take this to Starbucks and see what the barista says.

  22. My Last Pen

    Congrats…. I envy you so deeply… I hope I can make also a freshly press… if that happen I’ll gonna start my book…hummmmh.
    congrats again…

  23. Happened to me last week! My graph looked the same . . . made every other day look like three people had stopped by. Meanwhile, curious if you’ve found any lasting effects?

    • I do get a few more visits per day than I was getting, but the biggest plus I’ve seen so far is among those who now follow me on Twitter – I may not get to every post on everyone’s blogs, but Twitter is where I’ve made more lasting connections!
