big thank you to visitors to my blog + stats

some blogs make a habit of boasting about their visitor numbers. groundviews, terrorist parroting, peacenik ngo run, so called "citizen journalist", blog, in particular sends periodic spam to all and sundry boasting about how many visitors it gets (equating two different things, visitors with pageviews, btw).

whenever i receive them (as i did at the end of last week about their stats so far in january), i am always surprised that my blog, maintained by me in spare time, written by a single person, at a rate of about 1 post a week (1.25 to be exact), has comparable (though lower by about 25-33%) visitor figures to that blog, written by variety of ppl, at a rate of several posts a day, and maintained by especially paid employees.

lol.

so i thought i will take this opportunity to boast about my stats, and thank my visitors .

did i mention that my english (my third language, but only one i can type) is atrocious, my style while direct is aesthetically non existent, and that most of my posts (mostly on politics) are too long? not to mention the fact that i have not updated the template for 4 years.

so again,
thank you very much for visiting in spite of all
that.

i will post some google analytics figures for january (probably the best month for some time due to the presidential election and the number of posts i published ). statcounter gives somewhat different (higher) figures.
(click to enlarge)

google analytics - for january 2010 - 34,441 visits, 78,110 pageviews, 23,560, absolute unique visitors


statcounter - for january 2010 - 84,857 page loads, 39,275 visitors


google analytics - daily average visitors (not pageviews) and time of visits - 1,111 per day


google analytics -where the visitors came from - 116 countries

Actually i like licking my own butt. Its quite delicious you see ! Don't get me wrong guys, i am not a monkey praising its own tail. I am just a traffic whore infatuated with my own ass eventhough you may find it quite disgusting.

So let me lick my own butt, OK? Thanks meyala

Well, I guess I am one of them. i don't necessarily agree with many of your views, I don't often comment etc, but I do enjoy the read, in spite of, or maybe because of the (self confessed) aesthetically lacking posts. It is a difference, and variety adds spice. Keep blogging.

Impressive, and It wasn't a great night but your blog kept me alive throughout the night. Non of the media gave us a summary information like the one you had in your blog. It was so unique.

Thanks again.
