Today we achieved an important landmark on the WBFF blog. I say “we” because this wouldn’t be possible without all my readers. I could write the most brilliant blogs on the internet—which I do—and you could completely ignore them—which sometimes, actually, you do.
Nevertheless, today we crossed the 3,500 all-time views mark on the blog, but more importantly, we have our first month of 1,000+ views (and June is only two-thirds over)!
Traffic on the blog is moving in the right direction; ever since I quit my job I’ve been posting more frequently; and we even have a regular guest blogger on board to discuss the world’s most obscure sports. The WBFF blog is alive and well.
As far as the geographic breakdown of my readers, 77% of the views come from the U.S. This means that I have a 23% international reader rate, which is the 7th-highest international rate among U.S.-based blogs that have been on the internet less than six months and are run by an unemployed 29-year-old (proof of this stat is not currently available).
WBFF has gotten views in a whopping 47 different countries over its lifetime. 47! I wouldn’t have even been able to name 27 countries before looking at the list. As expected, most of the English-speaking countries are on board (Canada, UK, Australia), but I’m amazed by the obscure countries that are logging on to check out my work…some of them I never would have guessed even have internet or computers. Check out the list:
United Arab Emirates? Sri Lanka? Montenegro? Kuwait? Where are these countries even located? And is Bosnia and Herzegovina one place? Or should I be counting it as two countries?
By the way, great job hardly contributing, Mexico, “neighbor to the South.” Jesus, I live like 150 miles away from Mexico, and all they can do is clock in with three total views in almost five months. Guess I won’t be scheduling a Mexico stop on my first book tour.
So here’s the deal, loyal readers: I’ll keep pumping out mind-blowing blog posts, adding guest bloggers that have something interesting to say, and tackling any topic I think I know something about. All I need in return is for you to keep reading, spreading the word to your friends when you think something is funny or interesting, and giving me feedback on things you wish I’d discuss more (or things you want me to never discuss again). Deal?
Oh, and Mexico, blow me, seriously.
