The Top 50 Cities

As this last year has come to a close, it is always good to reflect a bit on the past as we look toward the future. One of the things I like to analyze are the different ways that I spend my time. I have to say that making entries to this blog is something that I have increasingly enjoyed this past year.

So as a person who likes to blog and enjoys keeping track of stats, I have a counter that helps me to know where the different readers of my blog come from. So today, I would like to let you know top 50 cities that read my blog. I will give them in order. In other words, the first city is the city that has the greatest amount of regular readers, and so forth. Drum roll please!

  2. Columbia, MO (I reckon I know some people there moving to LA soon)
  3. Chicago, IL (Not sure who is there reading regularly)

Terry,

Raleigh is on my stats, but did not come up in the top 50, not quite enough readers yet from that area. I guess you will have to find a few others to get Raleigh in the top 50.

Question, do you read my blog through a feed or by simply going to it?

lisbon guide,

I'm sure lisbon is a great city, I just don't have a lot of readers from there at this point.

Tom,

Hope all is well. Thanks for posting.
