I like checking the Sitemeter on the blog periodically to get a sense of who's visiting. There are little bits of information that can be gleaned by clicking the various categories and it's fun to think about Miss Kitty in Georgia, for example, or Mile High Pixie in Denver having read the latest. Or to see Linguist Friend's town pop up on the list or Joel the Neff out there in the wilds of Eastern Washington. I can only guess at most of who is reading the blog, but I like to try.
Today I found that readers from Dubai, Lithuania, and Singapore had visited Ms. Kitty's! I've had visitors from all over the globe and it makes me feel like I myself am doing some cyber traveling.
Looking at the "referrals" data, I'm always intrigued by how people land at Ms. Kitty's. Lots of people google "Neovita", which I wrote about months ago, not in a particularly benevolent way, and that column probably got more comments than any other one! I even got a very nice comment from a Neovita manager in Tacoma, offering some recompense for my unfortunate experience with Neovita orthotics.
But Dubai? Lithuania? Singapore? I'd love to know who those folks are and how they managed to find Ms. Kitty's. If you are one of those folks, would you be willing to write a comment about it?
In fact, I'd love to hear from anyone who is willing to chime in about who they are and how they got here.
