Okay, as promised, here it is, a day late and a dollar short: My monthly audit. Just like a good accountant, it is time to close out the month of March, 2016. So here are my stats.
Bottom line, March was not too bad. Page views were down from February, that’s bad news; however, the number I care about more — distinct people who visited my blog — went up. So, that’s good news.
I think this means — and I hope it means, that there are people out there who know about my blog, they have visited it in the past, and now visit it regularly, just to catch the latest and greatest. Occasionally I get a comment from a new person, the others seem pretty shy. In case anyone is worried about leaving a comment on somebody else’s blog, I offer my usual disclaimer:
Your Privacy is Important to Me: WordPress calculates who is a distinct person by their I.P. address. It also uses the I.P. address to deduce which country you live in. I myself can’t see I.P. addresses unless you leave a comment. In which case I can see your email address; and from that I COULD look up your I.P. if I were curious, which I am not.
Without further ado, here is my monthly audit:
Expenses – WordPress blogs are free – so NONE!
I don’t get paid to do this, I do it just for FUN!
And now [drumroll] for the metrics, so here are the numbers for the month of March, according to my trusty WordPress stats:
- AwfulAvalanche had 3,126 page views, down from February’s 3,531.
- The number of distinct people who visited my blog: 950. Up from February’s 840.
- Nations of the World: My 950 March visitors fired up their modems and dialed in from the following countries, in order of most to least page views. WordPress allows me to save these stats as a CSV file, from which I copy-pasted onto here.

|Isle of Man||1|
