Incredible You



I've been watching my page views for weeks now as I've edged upon 50,000 page views...which just blows my mind.  Instead of being able to catch it, though, my audience has blown right past it before it even crossed my mind to check again and see what number I was at!

As it stands—right this very moment—I have had 50,548 page views to my blog.  Which kinda blows my mind.

I've posted 463 public blogs which means that on average each blog gets approximately 110 individual views.

Not bad for a small-timer who basically took two years off to lick her wounds.

You guys know everything there is to know about me (pretty much), so I'll tell you something about you this time!

Based on statistics, I would guess you're from the United States, you're using Internet Explorer (tsk tsk) on a computer or device running a Windows operating system.

No big deal, right, that basically sums up everyone that you would expect to visit my blog, right?

Well, interestingly enough, I have a global audience with the following countries accounting for my readership:

          United States (57%)
          Russia (16%)
          China (10%)
          Germany (6%)
          India (4%)
          Taiwan (2%)
          Serbia (2%)
          Indonesia (1%)
          United Kingdom (1%)
          Romania (1%)

A disappointing 40% of my readers use Internet Explorer (I feel the need to blog about this and why it makes me feel bad for that percentage of my readers...) where 22% use Firefox, 13% use Chrome, 11% use Opera, and 2% are checking it out on their mobile devices (though I suspect part of Opera's stats are also mobile users as well).  The other 13% are using a compilation of other web browsers.

As far as operating systems go, 76% of my readers are using a Windows based operating system.  Only 8% are using Macintosh.  10% are browsing the blog from their iPhone or iPad and the other 6% are using Linux, Android and other operating systems.

Twenty-seven percent of my readers arrive at my blog from a Networked Blogs post either on Facebook or Twitter.  Twenty-two percent seek me out on Google (surprisingly, "Julianna Hough naked" is one of the top referring keyword searches that sends people here which I find to be extremely curious since I have one blog that even discusses the dancer...and she's fully clothed.)

Moving on...to date, my most commented-on blog has been Happily Ever After-All.  This post garnered (only) 8 comments.  I obviously need to work on engaging my audience better....that's something to figure out going forward.

And on that note...here's where you chime in.  Of whatever blogs you've read (that you remember); what was your favorite?  What do you love reading about and what dead horse have I beaten far beyond its death?  You've played a part in the 50,000 views—I'd love for you to come back and enjoy the blogs I post between now and 100,000 views.
