Readers who are also bloggers as well:
Do you have a stat counter???
I am totally into this stat counter thing.
Basically, I have a hidden counter on my blog that tells me about my readers. This is the type of information I get:
1. Number of readers.
I know how many people load my page. I know how many people return to my page because it's just so fabulous.
2. General Location of Readers
No it doesn't give me your street address or your first and last name. That would be creepy. Mostly it gives me cities and countries. Sometimes it gives me places of business. So I know who is "surfing" at work!!!
Why is this so awesome, you ask?
I don't know-- it just is.
I felt really cool the other day when my page was loaded by someone in the offices of the Harvard Crimson. Of course, this should not be particularly surprising to you, as we all know how valuable my blog is to intelligent society.
Other interesting places of higher learning which loaded my page:
St. Laurence University
Other interesting facts:
56 percent of my readers are American. 36 percent are Canadian. Three percent are unknown. Two percent are Australian and British. One percent derive from Singapore and Germany. One half percent come from Pakistan, New Zealand, or Italy.
I don't know about the U.S. breakdown by state. Much of my American readership is from Texas, I think. I've got readers all over greater Houston, greater Dallas, Tyler, Austin, and many other Texas locations. I also have readers in New York, California, Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana, Utah, and many others.
I'm popular on the east and west coast. I have a hole in readership right smack dab through the middle of the country. I have no idea about this.
You know what I'd like??? I'd like more comments from my fabulous readers. Comments make my day. It thrills me to know that my wisdom is shared throughout the world.
If you are interested in getting your own counter, here is the address:
