I started playing with Photoshop about 5 years ago and decided that I liked making things. I love pink and green, chocolate, halloween, and horses. I sell my digital images on Etsy to fund my horse habit (and a lot goes into the chocolate fund too!).

Stat bots...beware

I just learned something interesting.  When you look at your blog stats have you noticed sites like vampirestat, zombiestat, or uglystat?  It makes sense that they're bots since I don't think anybody behind something called zombiestat would be interested in scrapbooking stuff.  Just don't ever click on them to see what they are because all they will do is flash ads in your face and I've also heard that they can infect your computer with some god-awful virus (reports of people who have caught bad stuff from checking these "stat" sites out).

The only reason I mention this is because I was checking the "new blog" stats last night and was amazed that I had so many visits...

...the depressing fact is that most of them were from bots, so just be careful and keep your computer safe!

  1. I've seen the vampire-version in my stats. Fortunately, the zombies haven't gotten to me yet ;-)

    1. Good! No zombies here either, but we're ready for the invasion ;-)

  3. Thanks for the warning about stat bots! I'd not heard of those. Also, good luck with the washer situation. We don't have a laundry room really, just a small washer and dryer in a closet off the kitchen. But we lived for so many years in apartments with no washer or dryer that I'm just so happy to have my own (and the fact that I can do laundry whenever I want without having to compete for machines!) that I don't even care. :)

  4. Thanks for the warning! I have seen the vampire one. Like you, I was wondering why a vampire-type site would be interested in quilts. I guess it was a good thing I was too busy that day to see what was up with that site!

    1. LOL!! They might want the quilts to stay warm while they are hibernating during the day - you never know!
