It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Happy Belated Birthday To Me!

April 23rd, 2012 · 15 Comments


Yes, on April 9th I turned 4 years old!  I’m a little more than a toddler!!!  Well, to be more precise my blog is. I hate to say that I’ve been a little neglectful this past year, but I just can’t seem to find the time to write as I use to or as much as I would like.  Still, I can’t complain and my blog is doing well even though I’m not here all the time.

I’m still a toddler in this photo.

Depending on the different statistics I’m looking at, I have on average between 400 to 1200 people who come to my blog each day.  My most popular post was one that I ended up taking down because it was so controversial.  There were over 200 comments on that post.  It concerned a well known singer and boy did I hear from his fans, but I’m glad I took the post down.  Even today, over a year later, I still have people coming looking for that post.


Another popular post was when the Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl back in 2009!  For the longest time my blog was #2.  The Steelers official website was of course #1, but I was surprised to see that I was even ahead of Sports Illustrated who was #3.  Today, three years later, if you Google “Steelers 6 Super Bowl Rings” my blog is #1 from close to 3 million websites.


My most successful post today is one I wrote three years ago.  It’s my favorite quotes about Paris.  A large amount of traffic that comes to It’s All Maya everyday, comes looking for this particular page.  Again if you Google “Paris Quotes” my blog is #1 out of (wait for this!) 109 million websites dealing with quotes about Paris!!!


A post that still surprises me that people come to read everyday is one I wrote in 2008 about how to get rid of anti-reflective coating from your eye-glasses with Armour Etch.  Four years later I’m still #2 out of 79,000 sites talking about this topic.

Tooting my own horn with a little help from others.

Maya Muses:  Sorry for tooting my own horn and I’m probably the only one who’s interested in this post, but 4 years later I do want to thank all my readers who come looking to read something that I’ve written and even though most people don’t leave a comment (except for a faithful few!) Thank you! I appreciate it all the same!

So Happy Birthday to my blog!!!

    Thanks, Jon, I appreciate it!

    Thank you, Mia, or do you prefer Mimmi now? I know what you mean. We’ve gotten so use to Facebook, I’m always looking for a thumbs up “like” button when I read someone’s blog. It’s so convenient.

    Thanks Pam! I still have that dress that I’m wearing in that photo. My mom crocheted it for me, bright red!!! And I love my patent leather shoes. My older sister use to always wear black patent leather and I was always stuck wearing my white high tops. This was one of my first pair of “big girl” shoes! LOL!

    Congrats on your blog birthday! Love checking in to see what you’ve written about/seeing your photos. (If I were living in/near Paris, I’d have a hard time spending a lot of time at my computer as well. Glad that you do find a little time to share what’s going on with us.)

  • 15 Lynn // Apr 27, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Merci Cheri….you’re so sweet!

    Et merci Harriet! I Know you understand first hand how the streets of Paris can easily entice you away from your computer screen!
