Tips on How To Track Your Visitors with Google Analytics

Where do I place the Analytics code in my Blogspot domain?

In order to place the Analytics code on all of the pages in your Blogspot domain, simply insert the code before the closing tag in the template. Analytics will then be able to track both the post pages for your blog and your homepage. To begin using Analytics to track visitors to your blog, follow these steps:

1. Sign in to your Blogger account.
2. Select the blog you’d like to track, then click ‘Settings’ from the Manage options.
3. Edit your template
* Classic Template Users select the “Template” tab.
* Layouts Users select the “Layout” tab.
4. Select the ‘Edit HTML’ tab.
5. Scroll to the bottom of the code.
6. Find the ” tag, which usually appears towards the end of the code in the template.
7. Paste the Analytics tracking code just above the tag.
8. Click ‘Save Template.’
9. Click ‘Republish’ to update your live site.

A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On!

The Social Media network is a very large, yet manageable undertaking once you get a hold of it.  I am finding that the only way up, is to go through the process and that what I put into it is what I get out of it.

These days, it’s a MUST. There is no way around it.  There is no way (that I know of) to quantify ROI in Print and/or TV advertising.  In Social Networking there are several tracking devices to measure success such as Google Analytics and assorted available site counters.

To some, this is old news, but to most of my clients, which is probably 80% of the population, this may be news.

I can help you with your struggles in this new world of Social Media.   cindy at

A Slow Start on a Busy Day

The Early Bird Catches the Worm

This morning, this early bird did not get up early. We went to Michael’s friends house for dinner last night and we didn’t get home until late. I was being polite since it was Michael’s friends and didn’t nudge him until about 10:30. It seems to be a thing in California, that when people say ‘Well, we should be getting going – early day tomorrow…” it seems to open a door for another potential 45 minute convo. Coming from a direct Philly approach, I nipped that in the bud about 5 minutes in – we didn’t get home until 11:00.

So, this morning I took it ‘easy.’ This is NOT a good use of my time. I have been doing a lot of research on Social Media and the internet in general.

20 Minutes Until My Next Phone Meeting

Switching from one task to another requires forethought. In other words, I need to ramp down what I’m doing just about now and start shifting gears. That means that as soon as I finish with this post, I will straighten my papers, put on my shoes and prep for the call. Immediately following the phone call, I have to leave for another meeting and I’ll be ready to fly. STOPPING what I’m doing to make the transition is the hardest thing I do each day.


My day to make a list for the week. There are so many projects I am working on at the moment that if I don’t PHYSICALLY write it on paper, I will get lost. I started the list yesterday and as I remember things, I write them down. It’s a ‘work’ brain drain.

I played guitar and sang my songs at a House Party last night. It was really fun. The reason I thoroughly enjoyed it, I believe, is because I didn’t have ”loose notes’ floating around in my head.

The key to freedom is peace of mind; I get that peace from making lists and keeping on track. If I don’t get to something, maybe it isn’t a priority or perhaps it is something to carry over to the next day…
