I Was Fooled for a While

       Now first of all, I'm not half as smart as I think I am. Secondly , I've been fooled before.

       As a blogger I have a counter on my blog which gives me all kinds of information. At the end of July I noticed a reader who visited Hiawatha House a dozen or more times a day. I was pleased as it boosted my numbers. It appeared that this reader was steadily reading my whole blog. A reader who will find you and proceed to read your whole blog is valued. Everyday the visitor appeared a dozen or more times .

      Two nights ago the bubble burst. I found out the nice reader was me! I don't like to count myself when I write or read other blogs. I had blocked my cookie before so that my visits to the blog were not counted by the counter. How my cookie became unblocked I don't know.

      It was quiet flattering to have a reader who makes quite a few visits. However, I was fooled as I did not recognize my IP number or suspect the visitor was me.
