    ...if I don't get some sleep. However, I, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, am addicted to waiting until midnight for my Google Analytics statistics. It's the absolute best way to gather information about your site/blog visitors for future tweaking/editing and the like. Who is in the same boat as me? Sincerely,
    FreeTheTV

    I was addicted to keeping an eye on my statistics when I first started seeing any money.

    It looks to me like you're addicted to posting on BHW. :|

    yea... i dont get drawn into checking on any stats...when you start making money, you are constantly checking things every 5 mins... fuck that..... check it once per day, or get a stats program that can check all your accounts at once.....won't mention but it's out there...

    im anal about stats...but i used to waste toooooooooo much time checking stats... and in return..got nothing done....

    now i check once for new campaigns to see real data....and after a successful campaign is good...maybe check couple times a week...

    the time i spend on checking daily...is going into new projects.... but what do i know.

    I used to be, but if you look at my past, oh, 200 posts that aren't in the BHLounge, they are all helpful, long, useful, and legitimate. I realized quickly that my rapid posting was hurting myself a bit, and I'm no Peter or anything, so don't take that route. Sincerely,
    FreeTheTV

    I agree with westee, it's such a rush when a new venture starts bringing in the cash and it's very tempting to keep mashing F5 for hours...

    But you get into the habit of doing it and all of a sudden, you're not making any more money and you wonder why...

    Seriously, been there, done that, so do yourself a favour and get into the habit of only checking your stats at set times.

    I'm using Blogger at the moment. It's easier for me, and I like the GUI.

    I LOVE Google Analytics. It's like my baby to me. I love seeing where my hits are coming from, and modding my site to fir the needs of that.
