Another Goal Reached - 200,000 Hits on Idea Girl Consulting Word Press

I just realized I've had 200,000 hits on Idea Girl Consulting Word Press.
I reached the goal of 200,000 hits a few months back in views, but hits are different, so this was another factor.
I first started it as my business blog and quickly got bored with that idea.
I'm a Gemini, you can relate can't you? :)
So after seeing Perez Hilton get bopped in the nose on TV, I went to his blog and found it appealing.

That's when I decided I should blog about something I'm passionate about.
Something fun and entertaining for people!

I was so busy stressing about the fact that my daily visits had dropped from 1,000 to 500 and I was feeling kind of bummed out about it.
I don't why it bugs me so much.
I think it's because I reach a level of success on there and I'd like to keep it going.
I hate it when it fluctuates.
Oh well, I guess that's the way it is in blogger land.
I should be thankful!
I read hundreds of comments and posts in Pro Blogger and Blog Catalog where people complain about getting no traffic to their sites, or worse no comments.

So far I've logged 1,044 comments on this site and I've deleted an additional 3800.

Link Exchange Comments Boosting Traffic To Your Blog - New Music - Pictures- Celebrity News - Harry Potter - Emma Watson- Adam Lambert - - Use Blog Catalog

Blog Catalog is an excellent way to boost traffic to your site.

You can post a message in your shoutbox that is delivered to all of your followers.

And you can look for forums and chats about the same sort of blogs and catalog yours there.

People love comments, so go to one that will comment back on yours and visit it.

Hopefully they will like your content so much that they will come back for some more!

I always visit the URLS of the people that comment on my site, just to return the favour.

I also follower my followers on twitter - the idea girl.

I'm receiving new music on a daily basis from bands and fans so visit
Idea Girl Consulting Word Press Entertainment Site

I also write a daily blog about Fashion News, Fashion Shows, Fashion Designers, Book Reviews, Movie Reviews, Music Reviews, Celebrity News, National News items and Writing tips on manuscripts, synopsis, book proposals, and creative writing on The Idea Girl Says Word Press Writing Site.  I'm also blogging about the novels I have written for The Calamity Girl - The Promotion and The Munroe Mansion - The Beginning.

Writing - Music - Shopping - Movies

This weekend I decided to go out for a bit and have some fun.

I did some Christmas shopping at the flea markets and at the local mall.

I hope that you have started some of your christmas shopping?

I actually planned to do it after Dec 18th, because that's when all the great sales start.

Don't you just love it when the mall has midnight madness and there's a 75 % off sale on leather coats and clothing?

While you're out this weekend, be sure to check out the new release "Old Dogs" with John Travolta and Robin Williams, I've written a movie review on The Idea Girl Says.

I've also featured some cool new bands and new music to listen to on Idea Girl Consulting it's a good idea to listen to the songs while you do some writing on you're blogs or while you're surfing the internet and doing some Christmas shopping.

I also have shopping modules available in Squidoo if you're interested do a search for Linda Randall.  It will bring up my bio page and a list of the 114 websites I've created, you can get some great deals on Twilight New Moon merchandise, best selling books, dvds, music and more.
