I tried that Instant Gratification – get an IM anytime someone visits your blog” thing. I have to say that it drove me absolutely bonkers!
I thought it would be a fun thing to try. I’m always up for trying out new blogging features, add-ons, tools and other thingies and toys. So, I tried it and it drove me nuts…I deleted the code off my site and won’t regret seeing it go bye bye.
I just have to say – – anyone who is that tied to their blog traffic needs to get a life. lol I have the referrers script at the bottom right of my site, which serves two purposes, really – – it saves me the extra clicks of logging into my site counter and it gives a link back to any site that has linked to me, instantaneously. That’s about all the blog traffic report I care to receive.
The AIM Instant Messaging service has hit the garbage – and there it shall stay.
