Whose Watching Your Blog?!

Côte d’Ivoire's flag
I've been writing cover letters for job applications for the last two days, so I just need some silliness to quickly alleviate my brain. I seem to be getting myself a nice little international following, at least according to my Blogger Audience stats. I'm not really sure how relevant or helpful these stats are but they make me feel all warm and fuzzy and world wide popular inside.

Anyway, this all started when I was checking my blog stats for the day. This has been a daily routine for me since around August of September. It's been interesting for me to chronicle the viewing stats of my blog over time; when I first started, I was getting maybe 5 or 6 a day, but now it's up to nearly 20 a day! This may not seem like much to some people but for me, this is a big, huge deal. I'm also getting blog views from other countries such as India, Australia, and the UK, instead of just US and Russia (although apparently most of the ones from Russia were spam and porn sites). Today, as I was checking, I noticed that I had one view from Côte d’Ivoire. This was very interesting for me since I had never hear of Côte d’Ivoire before. When I did a little Wiki-ing, I found that it was actually the Ivory Coast (why couldn't they have just said that instead of confusing people by putting it in French). This made me think "Wow! My blog has made international fame! People all over the world are reading it now!" Of course, this person probably just mistyped a web address and accidentally found themselves on my blog, but still.

So, in an effort to make my blog a little more interactive, I ask you, my loyal readers:
  1. Do you ever stalk study your Blogger viewer stats?
  2. What is the strangest/most random place you've ever gotten a view from?
