500,000 Pageviews

Today is another landmark day for Bock in SecondLife as the total number of pageviews today passed 500.000 (since Blogger started the count on Juni 1, 2010).

If anyone had told me in the early morning hours of August 25, 2009, when I started this blog, that I would still be here almost five years later I certainly wouldn't have believed them. Anyway here I am, a little bit older and somewhat wiser, and still going at it.

In the beginning my readers were almost all Swedes or Scandinavian, which is natural because I blogged entirely in Swedish back then. After Ars passed away, and my blogging really took off, I slowly and over time switched entirely to English.

Today the blog's statistics tell me that my top ten reader countries are the following:
United States
153304
Sweden
93897
Russia
22480
Germany
17714
United Kingdom
15559
Canada
12463
France
10217
Netherlands
9748
Egypt
5730
Belgium
3197

I know of course that most pageview don't mean that people have actually read anything I have written, but some have and a few of them have come back to read more and sometimes even engaged with me and other readers in the comments.

My gratitude on this day goes to those of you who actually do come back for more, whether it be sporadically or regularly! Although I have often said, and it is true, that I blog mostly for myself and for my need to vent, nonetheless it is rewarding to realize that I am not shouting into emptiness. So thank you all!
