Ha! That was the first thing I took care of when I got back;-) I just joined recently, but I'm still at a loss as to how to answer the most basic question..."How is my site doing?" www.mytopiacafe.com. Because everyone is so hush, hush on their metrics, I can't really tell what are reasonable numbers of users, page views, response, etc. to expect on the site. So I'm hoping this may be the place for REAL heart-to-hearts;-)
