50 Followers? Thank You!

Wow, the blog hit 50 followers today!
I'm pleased & flattered!

There could be many other regular visitors who don't show up as 'following' and I appreciate all those visitors as well!

I know I followed many blogs, like Geektactica & Four Color Figures for a couple years before finally getting around to making an account that could 'follow' blogs- which is an awesome feature- the Dashboard is great: an easy way to scroll through the recent blog updates of many blogs, rather than going through them all from a favorites folder. Pretty handy feature even if you don't make a blog of your own, I definitely recommend it.

I've only been at this blog since very late February, and have been enjoying it quite a bit.

I've been particularly interested in the far flung geographical locations of visitors. I love to travel, but I will never get to travel as much as I'd wish to. I've had some frequent visits from some places I haven't had a chance to visit yet, like Japan (though I did have a lay-over there on the way to China) and Estonia (which I saw from the ferry boat on the way to Helsinki) and many other places I'd like to see someday: South Africa, Brazil, Andorra.. and many more. The international nature of this is just very cool, so feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi and where you're from.

I was curious about the international visits and found that the most visits from a single country is from the US at just under 2,500: a bit under 1/3 of all total visits. The UK is at a bit over 1,800, making the UK (with about 1/5 the population of the US) at first glance the most frequent visitor based on population... though with a little under 600 visits, Australia is close to the UK % considering their population.

So that puts the UK in first place & Australia a close 2nd for visits per capita. (and 2nd & 3rd place in total visits). But wait! The next most frequent visits come from France, Germany and Canada, and I know they all have larger populations than Australia, but the 7th place is Denmark.  I've been to Denmark.. actually got to live there for a summer several years ago- loved it.

Denmark is a small country, not many people.. how many? Looking the info up, doing the math, Denmark ends up having the highest amount of visits per capita!

Placing the top 3 nation visits per capita as:

1. Denmark
2. United Kingdom
3. Australia

So Thank You Denmark,
The flag of Denmark.

And everyone else as well!

So enjoy the movie & music of one of my all-time favorite bands, if you can get past the truely odd show host ;)

Well done - you deserve many, many more! I love the international nature too. Funny to think of large parts of the world meeting up like this, despite all the distance.

Congrats. Keep it up.

Lobo said...

you have at least one also from Italy! ;)

Paul´s Bods said...

You deserve (and will get ) a lot more than 50...
@Ray...all the songs by the Jam were great...

I didn't realize you're from Italy Lobo, fun!
I envy the Europeans: so many different places with different languages, cultures & histories in a relatively small area: a traveler's paradise. I have to travel 12-24 hours to get somewhere significantly different.

Thanks for the congrats & comments all!

I'm new and enjoying browsing through the shop looking at the figures, when the Jam pops up. Nicely done. Thanks.

It Just Got Interesting

I try to find an excuse to splash some good music or fun movie bit at the end of a post, whenever I can :)
