I’ve been writing this blog for just under three months, and I just discovered you can pull the analytics per quarter, plus a bunch of other ways of arranging reader stats. So I looked and, holy moly. Here’s a map of where people have been accessing this blog from:
As I’m British-Australian, I’m not surprised to see that plenty of the traffic comes from those two countries, not least as those are also the countries of origin of many of the blogs I read and referenced when I was buying a van and converting it as a campervan, Europe and North America are not that surprising either, as that’s where a lot of folks seem to be converting vans, too. Welcome, fellow van converters 🙂
But what can I say? There are plenty of other places here too. Hello, Kenya and Malawi! Hello Nepal and Russia! Hello Cambodia and Korea! Hello Mexico and India. Hello Vietnam and Israel! Sabaidee Laos and konnichi wa Japan! Hola España y/en goede dag Nederland!
AND ALSO: WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU, SOUTH AMERICA AND CHINA?!
Here it is in numbers. The following are page views, so e.g. for El Salvador, that means that four times someone has accessed a blog post on the site– it could be four people looking at a page each or (more likely) one person reading four pages. It feels like a lot and I’m very happy 🙂
Writing out into the cyber-ether is hard. But it helps ENORMOUSLY to know that there are people out there either converting a van themselves and looking for advice or (maybe?) just enjoying my bloggable ramblings. Anyway, I’m touched and happy about these numbers. It’s exciting… and it’s keeping me writing. Thank you.
