So I occasionally glance at statistics on my blog. I find it interesting to see who comes from where, and what they’re looking at, and where they’re going – it’s a very passive form of feedback. Seeing that 2000 people liked my post about uhm… wearable jellybeans, to pick a random topic, tells me that people are looking for information about jelly beans they can wear on their avatars, and tells me what content people are looking for. So this morning, while on the phone RL, I decided to browse my stats.
The US and UK are almost always in the top batch of viewers I get, because hey, I write in English, and a large percentage of people who read in English live in those two countries. I do blame my own Britophilia somewhat for the UK coming in above Australia or Canada. But… 14 views from Sweden? What brought you guys here? Let’s look at stats on who looked at what…
so 18 people hit https://whatfreshsl.wordpress.com since about 12 hours ago. Okay… and of those people (or perhaps not just of them, it might have been folks coming to it from their wordpress reader), 6 people hit my most recent blog post, which was a bit of a dribs-and-drabs post of pictures of goodies from The Arcade, and some tidbits on how to do photography.
So how, pray tell, did anyone find the link to the stand4love how-to, for that to be one of the outbound clicks from my blog? I don’t even get it: nobody went to the post and that data was behind a cut tag. And what brought the Swedes to pay a visit? Also, hello, Swedish folks! Hope you’re having a pleasant afternoon!
Ah well, weird stats are weird.
