When I first started this blog I was pretty surprised when anyone showed up to look at it let alone someone from another country. I figured maybe they were lost. Ya know. Stumbled here while looking for a real blog. Or stock quotes. Or whether they can eat the mayonnaise that’s 2 weeks over it’s best before date. (Betty would say mayonnaise is good right up until it develops that tangy green crust)
But then more and more people showed up from more and more countries and that’s kind of become one of my favourite parts about this site. Seeing where everyone is from. Most bloggers analyze their data a little bit through something called Google Analytics. Google Analytics tells you how many pageviews you’re getting, how long people stay on your site, how many posts they click on, how much money you’re making, along with the MUCH more interesting … geography analytics. Where people are visiting from. At any moment I can click on Google Analytics and see there are 6 people in Japan on my site.
Even though I’m from Canada, the majority of my readers are from the United States with the majority of American readers coming from California. I’m assuming it’s Drew Barrymore visiting a lot for some reason. Canada comes in #2 with the majority of Canadian readers coming from Ontario. That all makes sense to me. But France as #6? I wouldn’t have guessed that. I’m not sure why that one surprised me but it did. Probably because I imagine people in France are either eating fresh bread in their Pied-à-terre or milking goats in the countryside, not reading blogs. They’re also very busy strolling. A lot of strolling goes on in France in my mind.
Here are the top 10 countries visiting my blog.
Don’t see your country on the list? Don’t worry. Here are all 198 countries that have visited The Art of Doing Stuff this past month from #1 to #198 in order of most visits.
So for the first time in a couple of years I’m going to ask you all where you’re from because there are a lot of new folks around here. Be as specific or vague as you like. EVERYBODY likes to see where everyone hails from. It’s part of what makes the Internet great. That and cat videos.
Plus Betty loves reading about where everyone is from. It gives her something to do while recovering from food poisoning.
Lay it on me. Where ya from? Also just for fun why not tell us what the weather is like there this moment? At this very moment, Southern Ontario is below seasonal temperatures with a frost warning for tonight. So I’ve had to bring all my seedlings inside.
Have a great weekend, and an especially great weekend to everyone in my #2 country Canada who are celebrating the first long weekend of the summer. Myself included. See you on Monday! Or maybe Tuesday cause Monday’s our holiday. I haven’t decided on whether I’ll take Monday off or not. I guess it depends on how my weekend goes.
If I *don’t* see you Monday you’ll know I’m having a good weekend. ALSO this is the last chance you have to give your input with my reader survey. If you fill out the survey you’ll be entered into a draw to win one of 5 Cleaver tea towels. The survey asks for your name for some reason (I’m not the one who set the survey up, an official survey guy did that). If you’re uneasy about giving your real name just list it as “Noneofyour Beeswax”.
Now! Let me know where you’re from and what the weather is like!
