The Geography of Blogging

I was just looking over my site traffick on my SiteMeter.com account. I am always interested, in simply a curious sort of way, to see where in the world people are located when they are reading my blog.

I listed the most recent 10 below, well I took out the first because each day that I sign on it shows me too. (I have to figure out how to get it to ignore my signons, anyone know how?)

Of course, the great majority of the hits on my site come from the United States of America. It is soothing to know that it is mostly other Americans who read my stuff, heck it is geared toward you here in the USA. It is also kind of fascinating to see just in how many places around the world others have stopped by, have taken a load off of their feet for a few minutes, and relaxed with my blog in front of them. It is also a curiosity of mine to see what people from other countries read in my blogs. I usually get at least3 or 4 foreign hits per day, and as far as I can remember they have come in from all of the continents with the exception of Antarctica. Receiving one from way down that way (or is it way up that way) would be pretty neat.

I guess that after the USA, the country from where I get the most hits would be Canada. Next would be the United Kingdom (broken down further, specifically places in England). The next would be Australia. After that, my guess is, that most come from Germany, South Africa and Indonesia (all about equally). I get them from lots of other places now and then too. I got one today, or yesterday from a location I do not recall seeing in my hit list before - Israel! Whomever it was over there entered my blog at this page: http://ballseyesboomers.blogspot.com/2007/03/aiming-versus-point-shooting-in.html. If the person actually read what I wrote, then I can only hope he or she will put my thoughts on the subject to good and just use if the need ever arises. I hope you are one of the good guys, and not some over zealous nut on either side. Shalom.

All the best,
