Do You Really Want To Know Who's Following You?

I haven't been blogging with any regularity in the past several months. I do most things online on my phones. Blogging from a smartphone is possible, but not easy--so I didn't. Since most of the bloggers I followed (and who followed my blog) gave up blogging over the past few years, it started to feel like maybe it just wasn't worth the effort anymore. 


I was posting here, as well as the four connected blogs set up especially for my current writing projects. They weren't catching on, though I did have a few regular commenters (thanks, William, Grace and Eve!).

Since I own my domain and the four sub-domains (is that what they're called?), I'm not giving them up. Besides, giving up a domain can leave it open to blogsquatters. One fellow blogger abandoned one of her blogs and it was almost immediately taken over by a hardcore porn blogger. Maybe I'll come back to blogging at some point, if it seems worthwhile again. Maybe I'll repost stuff I'm currently posting on my Three Rs Facebook page. Time will tell.

Anyway, I do go check every couple of weeks for spam and scams--kind of like sweeping out the dungeon to keep the vermin out. Today, just out of curiosity, I decided to check my stats. This is what I found:

Pageviews
China 576
United States 189
Unknown Region 19
Russia 18
United Kingdom 13
Germany 7
France 5
Canada 4
United Arab Emirates 3
Indonesia 3

China? Seriously?

If they're looking for valuable information, they're in the wrong place!

  2. Unknown Region- where are they looking from, Narnia?

    I tend to look at the stats from time to time, but for the search terms people use that lead them to my blogs. Some of them can get really weird.

    1. I gave up Wordpress a long time ago. It got more complicated every time I logged in.

      I'll send you a link to my Facebook page.
