This blog has been around for 16 months, so it’s time to take stock. Some posts have been better than others, admittedly, and there have been dry periods, when other projects have distracted me from blogging for weeks. But I’m stickin’ to it until I literally run out of words.
Since I’m taking stock, I’ll be egotistic for a moment and share a few amazing facts about my readership. One of my favorite analytic tools is FlagCounter, which you can see in the right-hand margin of my blog. Flag Counter, among other things, tells you from where in the world your readers have visited.
School Communications 2.0 has received:
1,782 visits from the United States (I’m going to assume that 100 of those visits were from the author)
290 visits from the Philippines
243 visits from Canada
169 visits from the United Kingdom
141 visits from India
107 visits from Malaysia (who knew?)
77 visits from the Netherlands
66 visits from Australia
And the list goes on, with a good number of visits from countries in Europe, as you might expect. But it’s when the numbers begin to dwindle down to single visits that I’m reminded how awed by the Web I continue to be. Here are just a few of the visits that fascinate me:
4 visits each from Jordan, Vietnam, and Kenya
2 visits each from Croatia, Moldova and Oman
And finally, on March 27, I received a single visit from the Holy See (Vatican City State).
