OCD already, TBWCYL, Inc. officially goes off the deep end. Thank you Blogger Analytics.

As you know we are all about honesty here at TBWCYL, Inc. Well, ok, that's not true, but we are honest about the number of things we obsess over, whether that be cyber-stalking ourselves on Google, compulsively tracking Lucky Man's Amazon ranking, or staying updated on Diane Lane's whereabouts through the vast array of satellites we have purchased over the years.

Still, we didn't know how bad this condition was until we discovered Blogger Analytics two weeks ago. Blogger Analytics provides us with an endless series of reports about who visits "This Blog Will Change Your Life," where you're from, and what you look at. It's awesome, ever-changing, and there are so many variations on what we can learn, that there are days we easily spend 12-14 hours alone just studying all of you, your interests, habits, and desires.

Now, at the risk of coming off as pathologically compulsive, as opposed to our usual excessively compulsive, we won't break down all the research our R&D department has been doing, but we will report back to you ever so often on what we have learned, starting with the following things:

(1) We have had visitors from 17 states and 6 countries, including New Zealand and Lesotho. Nice, kind of weird, but nice, right?

(2) Among other key words used to find us, people have utilized (a) "gummy fried eggs," (b) "dang di dang di," (c) "lucky lumber," (d) "Scott Baio is 40 and single," and (e) "thank you letter for someone who changed your life." We're guessing most of these people have been disappointed with what they found, but it's pretty cool, isn't it?

Yes it is, but don't worry you didn't even need to answer that question. Why not you ask? Because we already know how you feel. And how do we know this? The Analytics told us.
