I love Site Meter. I doubt you'll find my visitor data nearly so fascinating as I do, but I want to share some of it anyway.
Most of you are in the northeast US, which makes sense, because many of you are my real-life friends and family, and that's where I've always lived. But I have regular readers in Tennessee, Louisiana, California, Canada, Australia, the UK, and Slovakia, too. About a fifth of you have ISPs who don't share location data with Site Meter -- you could be anywhere, people of mystery!
The vast majority of you first arrived here having followed links from TPW, ISL (a private forum), or Facebook. A very small minority came from a Google search. Another small minority came from links in emails. And a growing number of you now arrive from "unknown," which I gather means either that your ISP is cagey or you've bookmarked me.
I get an average of nine visits per day, and the average visit lasts two minutes and 28 seconds. A significant number of visits show up as having lasted zero seconds, though, which I imagine is some kind of data glitch, so I'm guessing the real average is a bit longer. I've had 779 visits since the site went live in October.
Some of you leave via links, mostly to blogs on my "Mommish" list, which is great, because I love them all, and I'm delighted to provide them with traffic. Phantom Scribbler recently added me to her blogroll, for which I'm grateful -- I look forward to seeing folks arrive from there. If there are other parenting blogs you read and love, consider leaving a comment to recommend them.
Many of you I know I know (Hi, Carrie! Hi, Emily! Hi, Mom!). Some of you I believe I know (Hi, Diva! Hi, Zia! Right?). Most of you are question marks about whom I might make educated guesses, but really have no idea (Who's my faithful reader in Yorklyn, Delaware?). But I'm happy to see each and every one of you. Thanks for reading!
