Stamping Top 50

I'm not sure if I should laugh or not. If you scroll way down to the bottom left of my blog you'll see the "Stamping Top 50" symbol. I have been amazed from the beginning of placing that logo in my blog- how in the world can I be #163? DH has been impressed by this fact which he infrequently asks about. Not only how could I be #163, but how could I always stay at 163? So, out of the blue today I went searching the Stamping Top 50 site. I'm not 163, nor am I 263. As a matter of fact, I don't rank in the top 500! ROTFLMBO. Seriously.

So I ask you, do you have this banner/logo on your site? Is it accurate? Has it ever changed? Yes, I'm going to remove it in a few days.... after I can lend some chuckles to others.

Is this a good marketing technique, or misleading? After all, what are they going to do, create a "You're not in the top 500" badge? Hmmm.... I think I could photoshop one of those babies up in a heartbeat. There might be some legality issues I should think about.

Enough with the numbers. I'm going to go play- after all it IS World Card Making Day!

Happy stamping :-).

eta: After moving on to other projects, and posting this little fact, I now see my ranking is in the 800's .... That seems a little more realistic. But, why did it change today? Lol.

I removed my top 50 stamping button too. Mine would change but the number only got higher, not lower. Too depressing when you know you have people coming to your blog all day long. Besides, I don't need a number to tell me how good I am!! (or do I??)

That is too funny!! Sometimes I do wonder how all of that works...I have 2 different hit counters and they have completely different numbers...

I do think your own "special" badge would be a hoot, though! :)

I am in the 800's too. Hooray.

I have been in the 800's ever since I started using it about a month ago. It never even shows a number on my site--guess 'cause I'm too low on the totem pole? Oh, well...
