The mildly terrifying thing I am learning while on this vacation is that freaking EVERYONE watches my videos or reads my blog.
My aunt and my cousin have been watching Mrs. Nerimon since it went up in March.
My grandma reads my blog.
My other aunt asked me how my mosquito bites from Montana were doing. I only talked about those here on my blog.
On the one hand, I am incredibly flattered. My family loves and misses me and takes time out of their days to catch up with mine. That means a lot to me.
On the other hand, they're giving my previously faceless mass of an audience a very familiar face and suddenly I'm feeling very glad I never broke my own "be a good role model" rule on the internet. xD
I suppose it's just weird. I sit in my room, I make videos, I don't see any of the people watching the videos and I only hear from the ones who choose to comment. The number rises higher and higher on the view count, but because I read comments it really only FEELS like a handful of people are viewing. Same with my blog. Reader and Blogger counts tell me I have about 1500 people who subscribe to my blog but only 7-20 comment so my audience feels much smaller.
So to know that my family has been reading and watching and I had no idea - who ELSE is following my online life and staying perfectly anonymous? IT'S WEIRD.
In other news, we're about to go to the Linton 4th of July Parade. Heck yes I am getting candy.
In other other news, we've stopped in a few "legendaaaary" towns on this trip that I feel like sharing. xD
Ellsworth, Wisconsin: Cheese Curd capital of the world.
Wishek, North Dakota: Sauerkraut capital of the world.
...of the WORLD. This, folks, is North Dakota.
