After starting my blog last month, I didn’t really expect that people will read what I write. I didn’t even bother to actively promote my blog in social media because I didn’t want to get my hopes up.
A few days ago, after 40 days of blogging, my geoview stats in WordPress showed this:
Readers from 100 countries have visited my blog. Thank you.
These are the top 15 countries in my stat list, ranked according to views:
- United States
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
- Hong Kong
- Saudi Arabia
- New Zealand
- Republic of Korea
Since I’m from the Philippines, it is not surprising that I get the most views from my country. However that was not always the case. In my first full month of blogging, the highest views came from the United States.
I was wondering what I wrote that interested a lot of people from the UAE or Saudi Arabia. I then realized that there are many Filipino expats there – or maybe I’m just a hit with the Arabs.
My first “hit” post (according to my own standards) was about Miss Russia. I also wrote a post about Maria Sharapova’s candy line Sugarpova, and three more that mentioned the tennis player. Sadly, I didn’t have that much views from Russia. From Russia – without love.
Of course, the next step is to find a way to get readers from Greenland, because it’s just too big on that map.
