I plan to write a couple of posts about one of my favorite blogging topics – WordPress stats.
Tonight I’ll take a global look at where my blog has been read, and where it has not been read, over the past seven years.
The map above gives a nice overview of countries where someone, in a moment of weakness, has read my blog, as well as countries where cooler heads prevailed and they managed to avoid my blog.
At this point, there are only six countries where no one has read my blog
- Central African Republic
- Guinea Bissau
- North Korea
- Western Sahara
When I last checked my global stats back in August 2020, there were 12 countries on the above list, so I’ve made some progress.
I have actively tried to get at least one view from Svalbard, but to no avail. I’ll put a full-court press on this year. The other countries may be a bit more challenging.
Here is a list of the ten countries where I just have one view. I guess whoever it was didn’t like what they saw and haven’t visited again.
And to offer a balanced perspective, here are the 10 countries with the most views:
(A sharp-eyed viewer may note that there are 11 countries – I couldn’t leave Ireland off!)
I think 400,000 of the views from the United States are from yours truly…
