google analytics

I recently signed up for Google Analytics, a free service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about the visitors of a website. I've attached it to my portfolio site (laurenfrancesmoore.com) and can now learn all kinds of things about the people who visit my site. It tells me how many visitors I have each day, where they're from, how many pages they view, how long they stay on my site, how they got to my site, and so so much more. It's a remarkable tool, though I feel slightly narcissistic when I dwell on these details for too long.

I found it particularly interesting that several people have found my website through various tumblr accounts. After doing some digging, I discovered that this image (seen below) of the large steel sculpture I made last year at Franconia Sculpture Park, has made the rounds on tumblr. I'm not too familiar with tumblr and all of its ways, but the fact that this image of my sculpture has 90 "notes" seems pretty cool.

The blogs I've been featured on all seem pretty cool... I look forward to checking them out in more detail! A few of them include rerylikes, Tumbleword, and ArtPropelled.
