It is Friday evening and I am too tired to think, so I play with pictures. I just read what Jorgen told about his feelings and it was in Daily, too: Feelings go up and down. It is analogical to life in blogoshere. Here is a picture of visitors in this blog ( thanks to Google Analytics).
You can see the influence of Daily: when this blog was mentioned there, visitors came to see this. After second mention begun Edublogs maintenance problem and lasted one week, there is a day with zero visitor. I could not log in myself or even see the blog. Motivation disappeared. Now all is working again and here are some visitors in a day.
Post named “I need blog friends” has got most readers, 138 if I remember right. Anyway 166 visitors is a big number – never happened in my blog written in Finnish. Showing numbers are 361 and 722 (two pages/visit).
How about the map? We have discussed that there is nobody from Africa: but I have had one visitor from South Africa. After Finland, my country, comes USA 57, Canada 23, Italy 19, Australia 19, UK 18 and then less, Ireland 9 and so on. Number of different countries is 29. Here comes the map:
France is quite empty, and Sweden. But Australia is green. Do we have more students from USA than from Canada? or why is the number of visitors higher from USA – you are travelling around? Perhaps I feel lonelyness and that’s why I have to put myself = my blog on the map. So I can be sure that I still exist.
Do you follow your blogs with Google Analytics? Does it make sense?
