WordPress started a new statistic in February called Views By Country. It tells me how many people visited my blog each day from which country. It looks something like this:
The time frame for this new stat is “All Time” yet it only has data going back to February 25, 2012. Apparently, time started on February 25, 2012. Anyway, it got me wondering how many countries there are and how many have visited my blog. Unfortunately, there’s really no way of telling how many countries there are in the world since it keeps changing all the time. And what is a country anyway? There are a lot of disputed territories that might or might not be considered countries. The United Nations has 193 members, but there are way more countries than that in the world. Some sources list over 250.
Since February 25, 2012, my blog has been visited by people from 105 different countries. That’s pretty impressive for a new statistic, but I’d like to collect them all. I’d like at least one person from each country on earth to visit my blog. I can’t go there myself, but I’d like my little goldfish up there to travel to every country on earth. I know it’s a pretty lofty goal, and kind of silly when it comes to it, still, I’d like to see it happen.
Following are the countries that have visited my blog in ALL TIME (or since February 25th, whichever).
I know some of you out there in the world have some pretty big things going on in your countries and you might not have time for a visit, but stop by and say hello if you get a chance between provisional governments.
To those of you in countries that are on that list, thanks for stopping by! I am humbled by your international presence. Please, come again. If you know anyone who lives in a country that’s not on the list, the ones who haven’t visited yet, tell them to stop by for a cup of tea* and a chat.
