Friday Free-For-All – 09/11/15

FFFA (1)

Pig roast tomorrow! And thank goodness. This whole deal has been stressing me out for months. We intentionally didn’t have a big wedding because we didn’t want to deal with all of the planning and drama, but then we decided to have a big, casual party to celebrate… Truthfully, planning this pig roast has caused almost as much stress and drama as a wedding would have. Yes, it will be fun, and yes, I’m excited, but I’m also ready for it to be over. Family is due to start rolling in around noon today, and the shenanigans will begin.

My blog traffic this week has been way higher than usual. Starting on Friday, my traffic just shot up–my average readership is around 40 views per day, but I’ve been averaging 100 views since the weekend. I have absolutely no idea why. And here’s the kicker–I didn’t even post anything Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. Weird. I should maybe look into that, figure out what’s bringing people in, and keep doing it, yes? HI NEW READERS!

I took my first Zumba class yesterday. The Sh’Bam instructor was out of town, so they offered a Zumba class instead. It was surprisingly really fun. I felt like a pretty damn good dancer the whole time, especially since I decided to throw self-consciousness out the window and just go for it. While Zumba was also really fun, I think I like Sh’Bam better. Zumba instructors rely on hand signals for cuing as opposed to verbal instructions, so it can be difficult to follow. But it was still a great alternative cardio workout, so I wouldn’t say no to doing it again.

Have you ever taken a Zumba class?

Any fun plans for the weekend?

    WordPress has some decent tools to track where your readers come from, it might be interesting to see what is bringing them in! I still have posts that get more views now than I was getting for new stuff right before I quit 🙂

    Regardless, it is great that you are getting more people checking out the blog … hopefully they stay around and chat 🙂

    Wahoo for more views! I actually love Zumba. I don’t know what the other one is but Zumba is a lot of fun for me. I have been in awhile…that should change huh. Tomorrow I have a 10k! I should probably get to bed.

    I hope the pig roast went off without a hitch! I’ve never done Zumba (partly because I’m so self-conscious) but it sounds like fun!
