I think I've been misreading this chart all these years. I thought I didn't have readers in all 50 states but it turns out I do. Delaware and South Dakota are tied for the sparsest concentration of fans, with only 19 visits each in all of 2011. Perhaps even more disturbingly, Idaho is not even in the top ten for visits. Perhaps my in-laws don't read my blog anymore??

Reader Browser of Choice
About 3/4 of the people who view Bridget of Arabia are right-minded individuals. The other 1/4 uses Internet Explorer.

Thanks for indulging me, and thanks to Google Analytics!

Mostly I'm impressed that you know how to read your stats at all. I'm terrible at reading my stats. I check in on them now and again for an ego boost (or lack thereof, depending on the day), but then I basically ignore them after that.

Happy 2011 and a happy new 2012 to you!

How do you know the google readers subscribers? I used to know how, but they changed it

Jessie said...

If you changed your blog template and didn't reinstall your Analytics code right away, that could explain the dip. I did that a while ago - couldn't for the life of me figure out why all my readers simultaneously quit my blog.

Jessie said...

Waitasec. How is your "visits" lower (much lower) than your "unique visitors"?

Susanne said...

Enjoyed this - glad you shared!

Bridget said...

Jessie - fixed. I have no idea where that number came from.

Jill, I just click on my blog in Google Reader and somewhere in there is "details." It tells you the number of subscribers (and average posts per week, etc.) there.

Oh Bridget, I read your blogs all the time. Sometimes I'm a day or two late, but I love your blogs. I'm always telling Stan to read them, but I don't know if he ever remembers. You are such a talented writer!-Janice
