My Christmas Tree is Famous

When I browse my website logs, I sometimes find interesting trends. Usually I just find people that are hotlinking to my site.

They just love this image on myspace. I’ve been getting 4,000 hits a month on it for a good while.

The latest big thing is my family’s Christmas tree.

It’s apparently being sent around in a Yahoo email (example referer) and now it’s popping up in blogs all over! Wee!Mine is the second most popular tree on Google Images

# of hits
5,000 November
23,000 December
15,000 The first 5 days of January

If you’ve seen this tree, do not attempt to apprehend. Just forward the email to me too!

Update 12-15-06: I’ve noticed the hit counts rise again this Christmas season. Mine is the second most popular Christmas tree on the internet!

Update 2-8-07:
Barbara sent me the final image of the ad. It was nice :-)

    I’ve been searching for a picture of a tree like this! I only need part of it – actually one half – do you think I could use half of your tree picture in a poster I’m doing for a client (it’ll be placed in a room with a cozy fire etc.)

    A note to the reader: I’ve spoken with Barbara and she’ll be using it in a promotion this Christmas. :-)

    Hi Lee,

    I’m a Canadian woman who now lives in Italy and to be honest I miss my country especially during the Christmas holidays. I was looking for a Christmas tree to put on my desktop and come up with yours. It’s just beautiful! You can tell you take pride in decorating it. My truest compliments… I downloaded it and now each time I turn on the computer, I feel like I’m back home again… Take care, Luisa

  7. mbot says:

    hi! i join the crowd of people who have fallen in love with your tree! :-) i put your tree in my website, but i’ve altered the image a little bit. The color is so perfect with my site’s color scheme! Don’t worry about the hotlinking, i’ve saved the image in my server. I put a link to your page here as my courtesy. Thanks for the beautiful image!

  8. Lee says:

    You’re very welcome. That’s terrific, Thanks! What language is your site in?

  9. mbot says:

    it’s in ‘bahasa indonesia’, indonesian language

    Well, that’s a nice tree and all, but it’s famous? What? I mean, the photo isn’t even that great. There’s ornaments on the floor, you can see the electric cord, and the color is all goofy, although that may add to the cozy aspect…

  11. Lee says:

    Here’s the tree on mbot’s site :-)

  12. Jack says:

    You need for proper grammar in your high school and you also need for complete thoughts when you write to people. What the hell are you trying to say?
