sleep, advice site

I am sleepy. Just realized today how sleepy... I slept like 11 hours Saturday night, then went to bed again at 10 or so on Sunday and woke up with my alarm at 6:30. This is coming from a girl who doesn't go to bed until like 11:30. Maybe it's catching up to me?

Either way I still feel just worn down and I'm not sure why.

Advicenators is doing well. I log in almost every day to see how many new members we've had in the past 24 hours. It sunk to zero a few weeks ago, then wavered between 1-3, not good. Then this week we're back up to 6-10. Very cool. I have this constant fear that it's going to fail, because I made it in the fall, and historically sites that I make in the fall get no visitors. This might break my streak.

Also, not everyone is arriving at it from spacefem - they're hearing about it from friends or finding it on google or whatever, which is great. A couple commercial sites launched right when I opened advicenators (funny coincidence), with advertising budgets and everything, and I was like, "well crap, all that work for nothing."

Technically I only made advicenators to automate my own advice column, so it shouldn't bug me if it fails. But it'd be nice if it did well, too.

It might snow tomorrow. *PLEASE* let it snow! Everyone on my friends list has been talking about snow they're getting and I've been totally let down by it, it's winter, damnit, I want some snow!
