I'm global-ly astounded--countries and continents

This is a little ol' Oklahoma blog, one that continues to change as I learn more. It probably won't ever make much money because it's not a "niche" blog, though my goal this year is to develop it into selling my watercolors.

But what astounds me are the readers. Sure, most of them are from Oklahoma, and America, but the hit stats from around the world are amazing, reaching 40 countries on every continent except Antarctica. I wish I knew who the people were and  their stories.


After the United States, guess where the most readership comes from? Germany, followed by Russia! Then, United Kingdom, Netherlands, India, Slovenia, Ukraine, France and Canada.


Wish I could explain those interests. But there are others that make me even more curious, though the number of hits are relatively low--Japan, Israel, Cosa Rica, Bangledesch, Pakistan, Brazil, Australia, Egypt, Indonesia, Bosnia and Herzegovnia, United Arab Emirates, Croatia, Thailand, Philippines, Sweden, Latvia, South Korea, Spain, Italy, Chile, China, Columbia, Romania, Iran, Algeria, Turkey, Gabon, Hong Kong, Poland.
