My blog “Awful Avalanche” has been up for 2 weeks now, I started it on September 5, so you do the math.
No, actually, I’ll let WordPress do the math. (If I can figure out how to use their “Stats” utility.) It is time to collate some data and ask the perennial question, “How’m I doin’ ?”
So, here be the metrics:
In those 2 weeks of my blog, I had 182 distinct visitors. (Thanks and welcome, 182 visitors!)
There were 1,124 page views. You divide the first number into the second to get the average number of page views. In other words (I think this is the way it works), each visitor clicked on 6.2 pages of my blog. This is normal for my blog, I think, because I write quickly and post a lot of short pieces. Somebody might come in to check out one headline, and then get curious about another one. This is my intention with the catchy headlines.
My visitors “dial in” from the following countries, in highest order of frequency (please not to worry, folks, it doesn’t tell me anything about you or who you are, there are no I.P. addresses, it just mindlessly counts the number of views by country of origin):
- New Zealand
- Czech Republic
- Isle Of Man
- United Arab Emirates
- European Union [what???? – is that a country????]
- Georgia (Gruzia)
[the last few countries, from Isle of Man onward having just one view apiece]
This is pretty cool. Thanks again, Esteemed Visitors!
