2012 in review: shameless “self” promotion

1 Jan

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

That someone from 103 countries visited my blog in 2012 totally intrigues me. Apparently, a lot of people have gotten lost, totally confused or made mistakes in the search for what they really wanted to find. 

Most visitors came from The United States. That makes sense. Most of them are probably me!

I like the way the numbers from the Holy Land are broken down, keeping separate numbers for Israel and the West Bank. Of course, Jordan has its own numbers. Hmm.  Am I being “followed” or “watched” by someone in the Middle East, do you think?

I am curious as to who is checking in from Ireland, and why the number for the United Kingdom is so high, high for my blog, that is. They give me no way to tell “who” they are,  only “how many” they are. Actually, they don’t actually tell me how many different people, but only … oh, never mind, I am the only one who would ever care anyway.

How much do you want to bet that the “5 most active commenters” are  the first to notice that part of the report?

Wishing you a blessed good year – and wishing mysef a blogging good year 2013!
