I have mentioned before that one of the things that has really sucked me in on this blog is the way WordPress compiles instant statistics on the blog so I can easily track ‘progress’. The number of page views is the main one I watch because I like that I am able to put stuff up that people apparently like to see. As of 0525, 21 Mar 12, I am at 2532 total page views. That is over 2500 views in just 15 days. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to look & then coming back to look some more. I honestly appreciate any comments or suggestions that would enhance your viewing pleasure.
The other stat that fascinates me is the countries where the page views come from. In 15 days I have had people from 22 countries look at this blog. Here is the list, in order of number of hits:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- United Arab Emirates
I have visited 11 of the 22 countries. I hope I get a reader from one of my favorite countries: Iceland.
If you have a friend in Iceland, ask them to check it out. I am also missing Costa Rica & Fiji…hell, now that I start think about it, there are many countries I have visited I wish I had a reader from…hello, Czech Republic?
It gave me the idea for a future post to assemble pictures from each of those trips and post them as recognition of that county having someone reading it. The second thought was I need to make a list of every country that I get a viewer from that I want to visit. My last thought was should I be concerned that someone in Pakistan is reading my blog?
Granted, the bad guys are all around, but they use the border area as a base of operations. A good reminder to always consider OPSEC (Operational Security) measures in all we do online.
I wish they would break down the US views by state.
Have a great day & thanks again for poking around on my blog!
