Last night the dude asked me what "google analytics" was. So I was showing him the stats on this blog. In the last 6 months, someone has visited from every state in the U.S. (California is the top, New York second, then PA) and a surprising number (to him) of countries from all over the globe. We were looking to see if anyone visited from Durham where the dude grew up (no, but Darlington, Newcastle, and Sunderland residents stop by). Then we were looking at N.H. where I grew up. People, I have what can only be described as a HUGE following in West Lebanon, N.H. More people visit from West Leb (pop 12,000) than Los Angeles (Glendale even). I'm thinking Hanover doesn't show up on the map, and that a handful of students or staff or faculty at Dartmouth are reading but using different computers and showing up as unique visitors. Or maybe I'm going to go to West Lebanon and be honored as the conquering hero (maybe you remember me as the girl who handed out Kudos bars at the grocery store when they were first introduced). Or maybe a bunch of kids at Kimball Union are just really, really bored. So, if you are visiting from West Lebanon or the surrounding community, do tell! Is my URL on the bathroom wall at Four Aces Diner?
The dude is also utterly convinced that my visitors from places like Bulgaria and Ghana* and Egypt are expats. So, a poll which is up there ^^^^. I can't make blogger put it down here. Also, I haven’t researched this so maybe I could but I am lazy today with the rain.
My MIL arrives today for 16 days. Don't forget I adore her. It might be rude to blog the whole time she's here. I will try to keep you up to date on the finger—doctor's appointment Monday.
Edited: *Oops, they speak English (officially) in Ghana. So change that to Brasil.
