Have you checked out the blog that I write each Monday for Saint Louis Cellars? It’s at http://saintlouiscellarsthecrushpad.tumblr.com/
St. Louis Design Connections goes international! Wednesday, Mar 4 2009
This is what is tres cool about blogging: In just four days, we’ve had visitors from the following countries, including three in Europe.
United States (US) 85 | Sweden (SE) 1 | Bulgaria (BG) 1 | Italy (IT) 1
My “Burgarian connection” is Stela, a former co-worker at Lawrence Group, who went back to her homeland last year, but still keeps in touch. She may have forwarded the link to the Web site & blog onto friends in other countries. Networking at its finest.
You can follow the visitors on a daily basis by going to the sidebar here, to the ClustrMap, click on that, and then check out the dots on the map.
The default navigation/display is “map with larger clusters”. Under the map in that view is info on number of total visitors and number of visitors on the previous day.
Total visitors (since the site went live last Saturday, February 28, 2009) = 88. This count doesn’t include my own visits; it also doesn’t include repeat visits from readers. It counts the number of visits from unique, individual URLs.
Number of visitors yesterday (Tuesday, March 3, 2009) = 24.
There is a “navigation” line above the map, and if you choose “map with smaller clusters” you can really see what’s happening. Scroll down on that same page and there is a list of countries and visitors/country in a list that also is updated on an approximately daily basis.
This ClustrMap is a free widget for blogs. I love checking it every day!
