A blog doppleganger?

Bloggie friends!!

As I finally get my first paragraph of my first chapter just so (again and again and...) look what I dug up on Google!!

I've discovered that my blog was - according to trafficestimate.com - started in July 2000.

How bizarre considering I only started this blog in January of this year!

Hmmm.

Charlie says: Methinks the lady doth procrastinate too much!


Have a traffic-free Tuesday everyone!

LOL. I don't know how trafficestimate calculated that, Old Kitty! I hope you are well and enjoying the week! It's now getting chilly...raining most of the time...but I enjoyed a little bit of the sun today. Happy Tuesday!!! :)

Clarissa Draper said...

That's really funny. I wonder what they would say about my blog.

Jacqueline said...

Wow, I put our address in and it said it was started on July 31, 2000 and I just started my blog on January 14, 2010; with my blog name, I'm kind of afraid the other site may be pornography!!!!...I don't think I want to know!!LOL...Kisses to sweet Charlie, hugs to you, Jenn...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I have to agree with Charlie on this one!

It is amazing (and scary) that a computer thinks it knows more about you than you know about yourself, isn't it? And we're supposed to trust computers, right?
Thank you so much for all of the compliments and comments about my blog posts lately! I have been unable to get to everyone's blog but you know that you are a priority when it comes to who I read first, right? It's hard to stay in touch at all times b/c I am holding down a full-time pet sitting job, etc, but I will do my best to stay in touch with you and all of my other blog favorites!

That's strange!

As is the fact that I can't resist the little hamster thing on the side of your blog... I feel obligated to feed the virtual hamster.

Katnip Lounge said...

Aren't you supposed to be writing and not slacking off on the innernets? Or at least catering to Charlie's every whim. Hmmmmm.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Now, if you can just get your doppleganger to pay your bills!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Don't feel bad, Jen. I have been blogging over three years and this website couldn't find any trace of me..lol!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow that is crazy that you started it so far back and didn't even realize it! That is ok though, because I started my blog in 2008 but it doesn't exist on that site. My guess is they aren't that accurate!

Hi Charlie!!

Ann Best said...

Just goes to show - procrastination is bad, bad, bad.

Jen says hi! And we both hope you have a productive Tuesday!

It looks like Blogger is playing tricks on you again!

Deborah said...

Was blogger even online in the year 2000? Good question! If so, you would be one of the first bloggers in the Universe! LOL
xxoo
Deborah
PS. I like your new layout. The poppy flowers are beautiful!

Boom Nisanart said...

Charlie my friend, you are ever so wise (and handsome, Rumblemum says)

Boonie S said...

I’m feeling a bit trafficky. Charlie’s one heck of a cool dude, eh?

Have a nice day, Boonie

Reenie said...

If trafficestimate (heard of it for the first time, btw) says it was started that long back- your blog is doing well! Now, why doesn't this surprise me one bit? Haha...

Donna Hosie said...

LOL. I daren't look to see what "records" they hold about my blog.

The Chair Speaks said...

Weird things is happening in the internet these days. Could it be the lines are crossed like telephones?

fairyhedgehog said...

How very odd. It doesn't seem to bother Charlie though.

Patsy said...

Hmmm, more like traffic wild guess than traffic estimate!

I checked my own blog - it doesn't exist!

lupie said...

I can't find myself!
Got lost in trafficestimate.com!

Hmmm...

Hmmm...

Brian said...

Charlie, did you start that rumor and put it out on google?

Alexandra Crocodile said...

That IS weird! But Charlie is right you know - work on your book!

The Monkeys said...

It's strange how these sites get their information all wrong most of the time! Maybe there is another site with a similar name to yours?
Charlie looks as calm as always!

Hannah and Lucy said...

How strange that you have been posting your blog in your sleep for years and didn't remember when you woke up! This morning I put my pictures on blogger and they kept disappearing into thin air so if you come accross Hannah and Lucy floating in cyberspace please send them home for their dinner!!
Charlie looks very comfortable while he rests his eyes (we know he's not asleep!!).

Kea said...

I get July 31, 2000 also, for the domain name, which of course is totally false. So perhaps that's a default date when they can't come up with any real info? Maybe it's really a way of spammers getting web site addresses to use?

Susan Fields said...

Hi Old Kitty - I've missed you and Charlie so much! I'm hoping to rejoin the blogosphere in another week or two, but just want to stop by to say "hi"! :)

Theresa Milstein said...

A few reasons for this:

Traffic Estimate wishes you were around since July, 2000 because they love your blog so much.

Your blog has had an impact like it's been around for ten years.

They put 2000 instead of 2010. A typo.

You've put up so many posts a year, they figure you must be posting for ten years.

You started it in 2000 but didn't bother posting until 2009. (Charlie's guess.)

You look like you're 30, so you must've began 10 years ago.

I didn't have a traffic-tree Tuesday. It's street cleaning where I"m working today. It took me TWENTY minutes to find a spot.

Simon Kewin said...

Interesting. Is your novel about time travel perhaps?

Ellie said...

How weird is that? I hear the twilight zone music playing!

Talli Roland said...

Weird! Is there another Old Kitty out there, running around?

Hope you and Charlie are having a great week so far!

Marg said...

There must be another wonderful you. I am going to check out mine.
Charlie you are looking good. Are you helping with the blog.
Take care and have a splendid day.

Jenny Woolf said...

Maybe there's something wrong with their calendar.
And sorry if I posted twice, it came up with Service Unavailable last time!!!!!!

Repositório said...

Haha! The trafficestimate is just crazy!
Anyway, good wednesday so!!
Kisses Old Kitty and Charlie!

Connie Arnold said...

I'm enjoying my visit to your blog, reading the posts and seeing all the great pictures! Thanks for your comment about Animal Sound Mix-up on Sharon's blog!

Hansel said...

Oh my goodness charlie, what is going on? 2000?! No way.

The Teacher's Pets said...

Guess what? I have honored you with a Doggie Bloggie Award because you are such an incredible blogger who always leaves thoughtful, funny comments for us! Please check out our post when you can!

Lola Sharp said...

Ahh, a tale of: don't believe everything you read. Apparently trafficestimate stats are unreliable.

Charlie's right...you are employing my Advanced Procrastinating Techniques. ;)

And, I'm sorry I haven't been around...you know I'm deep in revisions right now, rarely peeking out of my cave. (revision is PANTS!) (did I do that right?)

Happy Humpday!
Love,
Lola

Jackee said...

That is bizarre!
