We are pleased that our web following continues to evolve and grow. Our visitor maps, like this one, show a constantly changing pattern formed by our last 100 visitors.
Short term "hit" data helps us see the popularity of our most recent posts. By providing a mix of topics, stories and authors, we intend to reach out to a larger and more diverse audience. When we concentrate too long on one topic, we tend to see the viewership drop off. So when we have a long running series about a topic, we will start to try to mix in some posts on other items of interest. If you find a post on a particular day boring, please come back and try again tomorrow. Or, leave a helpful comment about what you would like and how we can improve our web experience. And, if you have information or a story that is relevant, please send us an email and let us know.
Our other graphic shows a week's worth of recent visitors by region. Click on the image to see a larger, more readable copy. Visitors came from 30 different countries and within the U.S. from 32 different states.
Many "hits" are a single individual, from a single city or country. We are glad you came to visit and hope you'll come again, but please tell a friend about us as well. There is nothing we would like more than to see both of you come see us next time.
Thanks, for visiting, and come again!
