Tag Archives: hits

Shameless self-promotion of this blog…

Yesterday, I was asked about the ‘reach’ of my blog.

Here’s a map of where my blog’s hits have come from (admittedly over the whole life of the blog).

I never seem to have been read in Chad, the Central African Republic, Spitsbergen or Turkmenistan. 

It is particularly irksome that I have never had any hits from Turkmenistan as I have actually been there and have written about it. Obviously, I made little or no impression on the locals. Mea culpa. 

How I got hits in China I don’t know, as I think Western blogs are blocked; and I do not want to think who or what might be reading my blogs in Russia.

Any suggestions on how I can get my blog read in Chad, the Central African Republic, Spitsbergen or Turkmenistan will be gratefully received.

My worldwide blog statistics

Pencil_CUTIt will be interesting to see what the number of hits are on today’s blog, as it is a blog about the number of hits on this blog.

People seem to assume, when they suggest blogs to me to publicise themselves or their shows that this is a comedy blog (it is not wholly, as I mentioned last week) with a readership mainly in London (which it certainly is not).

I assume that my blogs will mostly be read on the day of posting or a few days later, but they could well be read in five years time and readers may not be from the six main ‘British-cultured’ countries – the UK, Ireland, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

But today I realised, looking at the statistics, that Germany has featured quite highly in the last month and I have no idea why, because I don’t think there has been anything of particular Germanic interest included.

Below are this blog’s ‘Top Ten’ countries, by hits.

On the accompanying maps, the biggest-hitting countries are of a darker colour and countries registering no hits whatsoever are white in colour. I clearly have to find something to blog about which may be of interest to people living in Greenland and Spitsbergen and to pull up my socks in Africa.

The explanation for the appearance of India in the last list is because of the demise of the much-lamented (by me) Indian website We Speak News to which I used to contribute.

At least Iceland is dependable, even if Spitsbergen hates me.

Just for the sheer hell of it, below are the source of this blog’s hits yesterday, an average Saturday. Good news for comedy critic Kate Copstick; bad news for me from Greenland and Spitsbergen.

If anyone would like to tell me what life is like in Myanmar or Luxembourg at the moment, I would be interested to know. Or even moreso in Greenland and Spitsbergen.
