I decided to make a blog because I had an interesting story to tell, and I was currently unemployed. It gave me something to do, and quickly became a fun little outlet to vent.
I have been doing it for about a week and a half, and I have learned a lot.
One of the places I gather my knowledge is the 'stats' page on the blogger dashboard...
This shows me data of who is reading my blog, where they are, and what they use to read it. The blog has started out with friends and family only (shameless facebook plugging) but has escalated from there.
The first section I want to talk about is the geographic area:
It's an American blog, and most of my friends are from the US, so that's where the majority of my readers are. But I have also branched out across the Atlantic, which is exciting for me. Ho, Spain! Ho, Greece! Ho, Germany and the rest of you! The fact I get comments from a broad spectrum of viewers is also interesting, because I love hearing about others' points of view. To quote a horrid Disney song, it's a small world after all!
on this link. If it's in German, and you don't speak it, there are translators on the top-right corner.
Anyway, these are my insights for now. I look forward to the further education my blog will reveal to me, and hopefully I can provide some fun insights to my followers as well. Cheers!
