60k

I just found out that I've had over 60,000 unique visitors to this site, from over 100 countries, including:

United States, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, China, Ireland, Poland, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, South Korea, France, Iceland, Australia, Brazil, Thailand, Taiwan, Belgium, Sweden, Russian Federation, India, Israel, Romania, Malaysia, Austria, Singapore, Czech Republic, Ivory Coast (Cote D'Ivoire), Philippines, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Hungary, Denmark, Mexico, Finland, Argentina, Turkey, Indonesia, Norway, Portugal, Colombia, Egypt, Pakistan, Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Peru, Ghana, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Lithuania, South Africa, Senegal, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Ukraine, Chile, Ecuador, Croatia, European Union, Luxembourg, Greece, Ethiopia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Jordan, Guam (USA), Slovak Republic, Morocco, Yugoslavia, Latvia, Tunisia, Moldova, Panama, Qatar, Nepal, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Nigeria, Belarus, Cyprus, El Salvador, Palestinian Territories, Macedonia, Sri Lanka, Monaco, Bangladesh, Algeria, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Benin, Albania, Trinidad and Tobago, Armenia, Paraguay, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Myanmar, Saint Kitts & Nevis Anguilla, Mongolia, Macau, Kazakhstan, Dominican Republic, Saint Lucia, Syria, Polynesia (French), Bolivia, Gabon, Antigua and Barbuda, Virgin Islands (USA), Libya, Bermuda, Netherlands Antilles, Madagascar, Lebanon, Andorra, Malta.

What's cool is that I haven't asked people to promote my blog, have no online advocates (though a few bloggers list it), have done no articles that link to it, and have done nothing to market it. It also has a relatively narrow focus (ie, no politics or social commentary or controversial content, etc). A while ago, I read "build it and they will come," which is true. My blog isn't a blockbuster, but it's apparently decent enough to get visitors. So thanks! I will mention this when I contact agents :)

An incredible feat of which you should be proud. Congrats :)

Sometimes I wonder if my voice is heard in cyberspace. But then, when I check my blog statistics, I realize that the 15-25+ unique visits per day are all I need to keep me motivated.

It's nice to be heard, isn't it, MJ?

Yea--especially because I love writing but don't have an audience (yet) to communicate with outside this blog.

What's interesting is that all the writing I've done here helped me to develop a voice, which helped me to write stuff for radio.
