Over the past year....

  • ...20,100 people from 125 countries visited this blog, according to ClusterMaps. (I'm not going to rock the world with those figures, am I?)
  • Google Analytics has a higher number, almost 23,000, of whom  9,657 were distinct visitors from 122 countries...
  • Australia and USA together accounted for 52% of visits and those two countries plus Malaysia and U.K. made up 80% of visits.
The keywords over the past year that brought folk here, 
(after the obvious ones of my name and the blog name):
  • Top of the list: Stormlord Rising. By far!! I'm really chuffed! That means that folk are really hanging out for this one!!
  • The Last Stormlord was high up there too, along with "Ryka Feldspar". 
  •  So was "whose"  "whom" "who's" in various forms, linked to grammar questions; "fantasy tropes" "First person novels" etc
 And here are a couple of funny ones I cannot explain:
  • "I raise my eyes, and there is Kinabalu, presiding over the forest" (74 visits)
  • "if you prune my orchid, I will pay you rs.600 a day for the work, as soon as you have finished it." (14 visits)
Huh??

Wierd isn't it? I have never kept such statistics (I notice Canada wasn't mentioned!!!) but I have looked at some of the things which drew people to my site and there are definitely some which make no sense at all.

I think Canada ranges between 4-5%, Jo. Most of which is probably you! Lol...

The Kinabalu one is probably from one of your birding posts.

The odd thing would be that it is whole phrase that is used to find my blog -- so many times!
