The last 29 days

I have been messing around with NeoCounter to record visitor numbers to the blog. In the last month the blog has had visitors from 69 different countries. As you might expect English speaking countries top the actual visitor numbers. A question I ask myself is why people from such a wide variety of countries are interested in a boating blog based upon on the UK's Inland Waterways.

The visitors list of countries includes:

Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Costa-Rica, Czech-Republic, Denmark, Dominican-Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guernsey, Hungary, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Mongolia, Macedonia, Netherlands, New-Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Saudi-Arabia, South-Africa, Spain, Sri-Lanka, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, United-Arab-Emirates, United-Kingdom, United-States and Vietnam. The strangest and longest abbreviated country name was F.Y.R.O.M. or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

Some of the countries are completely land locked and so have no coastal maritime interest. Some do use inland waterways in the form of major navigable rivers. I wonder how many people turn up here by accident as a result of a google search.

But, no matter how anyone arrived here in this the last outpost of civilisation, on a backwater of the internet - without a paddle - welcome to the blog  feel free to post a comment.
