Stop the presses! I hit over 700 views yesterday! I am so excited and somewhat amazed. I remember when I had dry spells where there were days with no views or just 1 view of my WordPress blog, and I have observed that several times I have had 19 views this past week. Yay! Another item of note which I just realized is that tomorrow July 29 is my 6 month blogging anniversary on WordPress. I am really glad that I joined WordPress. My fellow bloggers are fantastic, and everyday I can be inspired, as well as learn new things.
So, my Sociological background corresponds with an interest in society and human nature, thus I want to do a fun by the numbers post. In addition, I want to say that I am GRATEFUL for every follower that I have, every viewer that takes a moment to view my blog, every like, every comment (well, the non-spam ones), and all the countries represented by the views of my blog. Thank you for reading and for the joy that comes through my WordPress blog. The internet really does make the world a smaller, more unified place, and that is really beautiful.
Let’s get to it.

Countries where people have viewed my blog = 52 countries since WordPress began tracking on February 25, 2012
Note: This is one of my favorite categories. I love how the internet unites people around the world. I am a fan of culture and travel, but I just wish that I could travel more. There are so many incredible countries in the world.
Here is the link to the map of the 52 countries where people have viewed my blog. I tried several ways to copy and paste it, but it seems that I need to take a class on how to do this successfully. I will take this class with 5 year olds. 🙂 If anyone knows the secret to this, please offer collaborate assistance. I can copy and paste to a Word document, but only the link shows up here when uploading.
Just for fun, here are the top ten countries where people have viewed my blog. (If you are reading this, then I will say again that I appreciate you!)
#1= United States of America (350 views)
#2= India (48 views)
#3= Philippines (45 views)
