Some Stats that Fascinate Me.

I was looking at some of my stats this morning which is not something that usually occurs to me.  Since you, my readers and friends, are the stats I thought I’d share a few with you.

My flag counter tells me I’ve collected flags from 90 Countries so far which equates to 147 flags.

These range from Algeria to the Virgin Islands. I suppose it could be 92 if you separate the UK so that Scotland and Wales counted. There are some very unexpected places like Armenia, Curacao,Estonia, Belarus, Qatar, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Russia, Uganda and China. Even 4 visitors from South Korea.

I’ve had 3019 visitors from the U.S.A. which comprises 42.4% of the total visitors, the UK has provided 25.4 % with 1807 visitors while Russia has 0.5% and 37 visitors.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who’ve dropped in and liked or left a comment on the blog. I appreciate you all and try my best to follow,like and comment on as many blogs as I can.

  1. Impressive statistics. I love that feature on wordpress myself and find myself bedazzled and amazed at how small a village the world has become. I’ve made some wonderful friends via the blog and am not surprised you’ve found so many.
    Hugs and many thanks for your many comments and your support to us all 🙂

    • Thank you Christoph, I hadn’t thought impressive, just surprising as like you I was amazed at just how small the world has become. My biggest surprise amongst all those unusual places who visited me were the ones from China as I didn’t think they had access to our blogs.
      Yes, I’ve met some nice people and some special friends via the blog and I’m most grateful for that. Now I need to win the lottery and get to meet them all.

    I keep forgetting to look at my Stats. Your post serves to remind me what a special and friendly community we are regardless of our position on this large globe of ours. I love our blogging community. It is without doubt one large, friendly family. XX Thursday hugs XX

    • Good Morning Carol. You’re quite right. The blogging community is a beacon to show the world what it can be like since no-one cares about any of the divisive things when blogging. It is just one community getting along despite the differences between us.
      I’ve been lucky to meet so many delightful people like yourself who I’d miss if I didn’t have access to blogging.

  3. Wow David. Impressive, but nothing more than you deserve! XX

    • Thanks so much Ardys, but I’m sure most of us have similar stats if we look. It surprises me only because I rarely think of looking deeper than the first little page of flags.

  4. Isn’t it fun? I get really excited when I see exotic, far-flung countries come up on my world stats map. But the best thing for me, are the fabulous people all over the world that I’ve been introduced to and made friends with through blogging. How wonderful to be a part of this special and supportive community. Carol is right, it is one huge, friendly family. Hugs galore! XXXXXX

  5. Curacao??? That sounds well exotic. I can imagine the inhabitants sitting at some bar, sipping liqueurs and nodding appreciatively as they read your blog. I’m off to go and look it up now. And big hugs to you, David. xx

  6. Interesting post, David. Well done!

  7. Isn’t it amazing how many different people you get to know through your blog? I love it!

    • That’s how I feel too Nicholas. My problems dealing face to face fade when I can connect on the net with such wonderful and diverse people. I’m honoured that some call me friend and have become very close to some over the years and through thick and thin.

  8. I’m endlessly fascinated by the stats at my blog too, David. Sometimes i wonder if the paid version of WordPress would tell me even more. But like you, i’m mostly interested in the various countries that visit. My blog isn’t nearly as followed as yours, but my little numbers are still interesting to me. Many, many hugs! 😀

    • Hmm, now I wonder about the paid version too Teagan. I’m shocked to hear you say your blog isn’t as followed as mine since there seem to be a lot of fans for your Three Ingredients.. We’ll have to promote it more.

  9. You tell such amazing stories… How could all the world not beat a path to your door! Congratulations!

    • Whoa, what a wonderful thing to say. That’s so kind. I’d never get any sleep if the rest of the world decided to join too. I don’t know how people like Seumas cope with a much bigger following.

  10. This post caused me to track down my total viewers stats – something I have never done before. I didn’t sort through the flags, just counted the number in the very long list and was amazed to discover there are 83 countries represented! My largest viewership is from the USA – which is also surprising when you think I’m just a little old crafter and painter from New Zealand. That was a bit of early morning fun and I found out something I didn’t know before, so thanks for the impulse David. I am happy to be part of your stats 🙂 xoxo

    • I’m delighted you’re part of my stats and more than happy to be part of yours.I think if you click onto the flags page it tells you how many countries there are and also how many flags are represented. 83 Countries is pretty good, I’m not sure I could name that many.
      It’s not surprising the U.S.A. is your biggest follower as it’s the biggest population and is heavily into crafting. I hope the UK gave a good showing too.
      It is interesting to see these things sometimes just to see how were doing.

  11. Congrats, David. You deserve all the traffic. Your blog posts are always inspiring and incredibly funny! 🙂
    Keep up the great work.


    • You’re so kind. My traffic is not exceptional by any standards and nor I bet are the number of countries people have visit, it’s just that I looked and many don’t. I appreciate the lovely words though.

  12. I agree you deserve it, but you’re right, it’s amazing to think we can be in so many places (not that I remember to check my stats very often either)

    • I never remember to check on visitors to the blog per week or anything like that but the flags are at the bottom of my wordpress screen every time and they fascinate me.

  13. I don’t know about flags but I was rather pleased to receive some post with a Welsh post mark, thank you for the card

    xx Huge hugs Xx

  14. Very cool! It’s also a bit fascinating when someone reveals those hidden stats! Here’s to you getting visitors from the rest of the world!

  15. You’re an international magnet, David! Well done. 🙂

    • Ha ha, I’m quite a small magnet then Marylin. Many blogs have far more visitors and much more interaction than mine. I like what I have though, maybe I should see what countries are missing and try to get them too.

  16. I love that we have people from all over the world visiting our blogs, it kind of makes the world feel a bit smaller and more personal. The WP stats are quite amazing. Silly question, when you are on your blog can you see snow? I see it on yours, it’s enabled on mine but I can’t see it. Just wondering.

    • When I think about penpals I had as a child and how long letters took to get here, this technology was unthinkable them. ( Mind you so was any technology back then). Now I have a portion of the world at my fingertips.
      Yes, I can see the snow running across WP main screen, but not while I’m typing answers like this.

  17. It’s nice to think that we who share our lives via a keyboard are contributing to global understanding and community that is bigger than our individual efforts.

    • You’re right it’s a wonderful thought. I wish that global understanding was bigger and took in all the policy makers who seem to ignore the fact that most people want peace in the world and not the next war they’re planning for oil.

  18. Congrats! Clearly US bloggers work hard. 😉

  19. Congrats! Your stats are VERY impressive!

    • Thanks so much Candy. I see stats where people have upwards of 100 visitors a week. That’s never going to happen for me. I think my best week is about 100. I don’t blog often enough to be in the big league and am too narrow in my appeal to reach the heady heights of wordpress noticing the blog and Fresh Pressing it. Still, I’m content to be with my friends and try to entertain them. I like being in such good company.

  20. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    It is fascinating to look at where your audience are around the world and to think that all of us have that wide a reach with the words we write.

  21. Wow. Amazing, and interesting. I shall have to take a peak to see what I fin on mine. Thank you for a nudge. ❤

  22. Interesting stats, David. I need to check out mine. I really get a kick out of your blog, always makes me smile. MaryJane 🐹🐹

    • I bet yours are full of surprises too. One of these days there’ll be a flag for Venus colony or from an alien inhabited world.
      Thanks so much for your kind words, I like smiles.

  23. Congratulations on such a wide and diverse audience!

  24. That’s some well deserved stats! You certainly have a wide range of people who enjoy your posts.
