You can see me... but now I can see you! YES YOU!!!

I mentioned in an earlier post that I use to keep tabs on how many vistors I get to my blog. It is for no other reason than to see if its actually a worthwhile task, if no one is reading it then there is no real reason for me to continue with it.

As fate would have it there are a few strange people out there who actually seem to enjoy my musings (I'm looking at you!), and it is astonishing to look at the maps provides to see where are you strange people are from.

The website only provides info about the last 500 visitors to the site, with a subscription needed to have a greater record size... 500 however is more than enough for my ego stroking... I mean my research into this being a worthwhile endeavour.

Here are a couple of the maps statcounter has available for me to peruse with some of the last 500 visitors marked.... thats some freaky shit right there! Especially when you consider I am sat in a dank bedroom in darkest Woking, and some geezer in Korea is interested in the Micro Greens I am growing or what I have been doing at Tante Marie!  But hey, if you're happy I'm happy!

  1. Exeter.... No idea who that could be... >.> :P

    Nicking the gizmo to have a look. Just wait, i'll have like 3 visitors.

  2. San Diego is in da house!

    "Ron Burgundy: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.

    Veronica Corningstone: No, there's no way that's correct.

    Ron Burgundy: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

    Veronica Corningstone: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?

    Ron Burgundy: No. No.

    Veronica Corningstone: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.

    Ron Burgundy: Agree to disagree. "

  3. Hi - I am on the list: Casey from Kyustendil, Bulgaria! I don't know why it comes up with a "j" in the town name... odd!

  4. I'm a big fan of google analytics, I love seeing where people are in the world looking at my blog is great fun and often really surprising. Especially when people in Japan are reading about Yorkshire food!

  5. Just to let you know, I've been reading your blog from Sunderland. Nice one.

  6. Of course I haven't been reading it, I only look at the pictures.............

  7. hi from Newfoundland and Labrador! :)


  8. Hello from Durban SA!

    Enjoy the blog, please keep going.


  9. What a amazing list.

    Congrats and keep it up.

    In beautiful Barcelona.

  10. Really surprised that you haven't listed Stockport - I am keeping tabs on you! More surprising is that you are being 'read' in Sunderland?


I look forward to reading your comments whether they are good, bad or indifferent!
