I often wonder who my readers are. I wonder what you’re like. I wonder where you’re from, what you do, what you enjoy reading. Why did you come here?
I can answer only one of those questions using WordPress’s country stats, which they started using this year. In the past 7 days, my readers are mostly from Japan and the USA with some from Canada and Australia. And then there are the countries with very few visitors, such as Brazil, Greece, Estonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, UK, and Norway. But that’s only a week. Here are my top 10 countries since February:
- United States
- United Kingdom
And then I look way down at the bottom. These are the countries with only 1 single visitor: Colombia, Croatia, Finland, Nigeria, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belarus, Jordan, Argentina, Belgium, Kenya, Moldova, Sri Lanka, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lithuania, Venezuela, and Barbados.
It’s all very interesting to see where I’m popular in. Of course, my target audience is the English speaking world, so it’s no surprise that USA is number 1. I’m from Canada, so a lot of my Canadian readers would be friends and family. UK and Australia are also a big target. But number 2 is Japan. I live in Japan, and I know that many other expats living in Japan read this blog, as well as my Japan blog.
But who are you? I want to get to know my readers. Let’s talk. I’m very curious about everyone.
So, here is my challenge to you. It’s very simple. Leave a comment on this post with the following information:
- Which country are you from?
- Are you male or female?
- What’s your favourite book genre?
- Where are you reading this blog from? Home? Library? On your smartphone in the bus? Where?
- What brought you to this blog?
- And finally, do you have a blog or website?
Of course, you can add anything else you like. I look forward to reading your comments!
