I’d like to be able to say that my blog is wildly popular with thousands of people checking it out daily. Truth be told I do have a small following and I believe that most of you are not friends and family, but people who enjoy blogs and probably love Italy and food too. My sister has never even checked it out and I doubt if my best friends read it either. That’s okay I guess. I hope that I’m building my readership day by day with the help of you wonderful bloggers who have linked me.
Where am I going with this? Well yesterday when I happened to check how may hits I had, it was about four times higher than usual. Initially I was pleasantly surprised but then I became curious when I saw which post everyone had been looking at. Back on July 1st I wrote a post entitled “Mia Sorella e L’Italia” (My sister and Italy), talking about how I’d love to take my sister to Italy with me. Why would this be of interest to so many people? After a little research I found out that it was probably Italians looking at my blog thinking that it had something to do with a competition called “Sister Italy 2008” to find the most beautiful nun in the country and dispel the notion that all nuns are old and unattractive! Gotta love those Italians. Who knows what they’ll be up to next?
