Blogger has made some changes to its site. I was drawn to look at my blog stats. These figures are page views, that may just come up in a google search and the person could click away within a second, so they are not readership. I find it very interesting and at times puzzling as to why I am read so much in some countries. Australia and the US are as I would expect.
But next is Germany with an unexpected high figure! Why? Two people on my blog list speak German, that I know of, but not not normally at home. A couple more have German heritage. Does not make any sense to me. Could it be that I picked up readers when we were in Germany or Germans google German things and I might have mentioned a place or item in a post. Gee, we were only in Germany for a few days.
France is also an oddity. Could the high readership there be because I at times comment on the blogs of two Americans who live in France? How many French readers do they have? I wouldn't have thought that many.
The UK, disappointedly low, as is Canada.
Russia and the Ukraine? Again, why? China is on the high side too. With one dedicated reader in Poland, even that figure seems high. Ah well, such is the information superhighway. Take a look at your own blog stats and wonder.
